    Good News , bad news

    I just recently moved over the border back into Arkansas and things have changed pretty fast on me. I Lived here prior to going to Louisiana and had a Arkansas permit and Non Resident New hampshire Permit (20 Bucks) . I took the La Pemit class But never sent it off But had reciprocity with my New Hampshire Permit also, So no worries about Not carrying. I was OK ! Anyway I figured when I came back to Arkansas I would now have to wait and go back through all the hoops again, So I called the Arkansas state Police and to my great Suprise ( GOOD NEWS ) Arkansas just Signed Reciprocity with New Hampshire this week, which will include the the Non Resident Permits ( Best 20 Bucks I ever Spent ) , So I can transfer my permit to Arkansas and won t have to go through the waiting period. ( BAD NEWS ) The Transfer requires you to send in your permit with the application, not just a copy with New Drivers License which then I am told will nullify my NH Non resident permit. So good news faster and cheaper. Bad news 120 days with no carry .

    It takes that long? That's too bad. Can you drop off and pick up the permits in person to shave off a few days on each end?

    Not that I am aware of. I am going up to Little rock next week to get all my other stuff done to, ( I am also a NRA Instructor So I have to take a test to teach CCW classes here) so I am hoping somebody there will help me speed it up. I find it strange I can get certified to teach it faster than I can actually get the permit itself. So I will probably just take the paperwork with me then.

    I think you can drop off your paper work in person to the state police.....in fact the more I think about it I remember my wife doing just that to shave off a few days. Worth the time to check it out if it saves some days down the road.

    Ouch, that is a while. Isn't it funny how the govt. paperwork process never seems to make sense, no matter what branch you're talking about? Good Luck!

    Well that is going to be a pain for the 120 day. In AR, you can't car carry either, so it will have to stay at the house for the next few months.

    Hey on the bright side, you can spend this time doing cleaning and maintenance on your guns so that they will be ready when the new plastic arrives.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Why not reapply normally for AR permit and retain NH permit in the meantime?

    Seems like the appropriate thing to do...
    I wouldn't want to be without my CCW permit for 3 months.
