You should only use the Terminate button when a 4473:

  • Has been cancelled by the buyer or seller for any reason before a background check is started.
  • A NICS/Background check was conducted, and response of "Proceed" was received, and no items were transferred to the buyer.
  • A NICS/Background check was conducted, and no response was received, and no items were transferred to the buyer.
  • Has reached its 30 day expiration.

If a NICS/Background check was completed and no firearms were transferred to the buyer for any reason, you must save the printed and signed copy of the 4473.
