  1. The Brady Act is apparently automatically put into play when you are declared incompetent. I'm at %80 total and my unemployability was deferred. I'm not planning on buying any guns in the future, and I think that's really the only time it will matter until I'm release at the end of this year. I live in Arizona so not really missing out on any hunting or anything anyway. I don't live in the ghetto either. I just don't like the idea of being told "NO" by a BS paper pusher. I've handled guns since I was about 3 years old. Never had a problem. I say "My wife pays the bills" and all of a sudden I'm a huge risk to the safety of others. Just feels wrong.
  2. They finally came out yesterday to "check up on me". The guy was here for less than 20 minutes, didn't even go any where in my house, except the kitchen, and filled out the paper work to let me be my own fiduciary. Seems like a lot of wasted time and undue stress to put me through. He said that he has to come back next year and do the same but will release me from the Brady act and having to deal with having a fiduciary. Even though, technically, I'm my own fiduciary. He also said it's been happening a lot lately to younger veterans. So be careful not to tell your Dr. "My wife pays the bills".

  4. Mike did they bump you up to 100% when they said you were incompetent? This gun crap has already started trouble with my dad, he's been demanding I mail him all my guns. Somehow the shotgun he bought me last year means he's entitled to own all my guns.... I'd rather not get rid of them, but If I have to, I'd just rather sell them then deal with the greed drama.
  5. Brady act means I can't own guns or ammo without jail time. Some how me not being able to count my own money, means I can't own guns........
  6. I just Got a letter last week stating that I am in fact incompetent. They basically said no problem getting my wife set up as my fiduciary, but as far as another friend or family member it's practically impossible. Also apparently because I have "trouble managing my own finances" I can no longer own a gun or ammo unless I face fines and jail time. My only real hope now is to file for "Relief from the Brady Act". I don't know. As if life wasn't sucking enough you know? My question is, How hard is it to get relief from the brady act? I can't think of any reason why my inability to count my own money (bullshit btw) would constitute the need to take away my gun privileges? Is there basically a template letter you can copy / paste or is this a long drawn out fight I'm probably going to lose?

  8. Still on PENDING DECISION APPROVAL since 7/21/2014. Except now it also says "The estimated completion date of 08/07/2014 is past due".
  9. Yea the funding fee was waived and everything but the $500 earnest was rolled into the mortgage. Just had to pay the $500 twice to "replace" it because of a paperwork issue. But, we got the first one back. The mortgage company worked with us a lot to get us approved and then sold the loan to another bank after the first payment was made.
  10. My rep said one of the VES doctors put a check in the box recommending incompetency but didn't fill out the next section for the reason why. He said most likely it was the "my wife pays the bills" thing they try to use. I'm supposed to receive a letter with the predetermination information soon.
  11. carlie, Before we could get final approval for the VA loan we had to pay off my student loan debt, basically my father advanced my back pay to me, and also had to pay the $500 earnest money twice. We did received one of the $500 payments back in a check after all the closing was finalized.
  12. UPDATE: VSO / DAV basically said hurry up and wait. The status was changed to this in the last few days: The estimated completion date of 08/07/2014 is past due (Learn more) PENDING DECISION APPROVAL Predetermination Development Letter Sent Still haven't recieved any letter other than the one that says I OWE them $4,500 because of their screwup with having my exwife still listed as being married to me. I must have submitted that paperwork a dozen times. Good old VA, years to give you money but they will get theirs in less than a month.
  13. I don't recieve SSDI. I was told that my work credits for the time in the Navy expired. I went and filled out the paper work for IU today at the regional office. I also tried to visit my DAV rep today but was given a "hurry up and wait" appointment 3 weeks from now. As far as the agoraphobia, I believe that is in my records from the VA. I'll get them out and look through them.
