I have read an article of a case where the background check approval timed out after 3 days, and the customer got his gun... only for them to come up with something like a pending domestic abuse restraining order weeks later.

The local PD was then tasked with retrieving the gun with a SWAT force.

It will be interesting to see if more of these 'timed-out' transfers happen with harden criminals taking advantage of Corvid virus NICS blackout.
