  • If "approved/proceed," the firearm will be made available to you for inspection & final delivery
  • If "delayed," the firearm will remain under Blackburn Tactical custody until a final response is received by VSP/FBI, you will leave Blackburn Tactical & you will be contacted to return to Blackburn Tactical if a "proceed" is later received from VSP/FBI
  • If "denied," the firearm will remain in Blackburn Tactical custody & your initial purchase price less the applicable transfer fee will be refunded to the original payment method used (i.e. honorably discharged veteran purchases a firearm for $500, but received a "denied" response from VSP/FBI--Blackburn Tactical will refund the customer $475 ($500 purchase price less $25 applicable transfer fee)
