If you have a CCDW permit and are purchasing a new gun from a dealer in DE do you still have to fill out
all the paper work for a background check., or is having the permit enough.

You will still be required to complete a Form 4473 when you purchase a firearm from an FFL, regardless of whether or not you have acquired the license as provided in Delaware Title 11, Section 1441 (license to carry CCDW).

Years ago, it exempted you from the Delaware call, but NOT the Federal call, and not the 4473.  Of course, I guess we could walk this all the way back to pre-Fall Ď68 when you didnít even need the 4473!

Very few guns are actually "illegal guns."  A gun misappropriated by a criminal is no more of an "illegal gun" than a stolen car is an "illegal car."

It doesn't appear to distinguish between resident and non-resident permits.  Ironically HI permits qualify but virtually none exist.  DE & FL do not. However UT & PA do!

Reading further, Permanent Brady State Lists appears to defer the background check to the State.  So maybe if you show a PA LTCF when purchasing in PA that you fill out a PA form instead of the 4473.

Reading even further, the ATFs Open Letter to All PA FFLs states that "The Brady law provides that certain permits may qualify as alternatives to a NICS check. However, there are no permits in your State that qualify as an alternative to a NICS check.. So if you have read this far in this post: Dead End.
