    Gotta be a record

    Okay, so I had a little spot on by record. I studied the application well and went with what I thought would be a 99% chance rather I would be granted a permit or not. I applied April 27, 2012 and today December 31,2012 I received my permit in the mail. A mere 248 days later. Granted I was arrested and charged with felony asault back in 2007 but received a misdemenor. I feel vindicated more than anything as myself, my attorney and even the district attorney said I was overly charged. The FBI, OSBI, City Police and County Sheriff have finally decided that I'm really not a bad guy. I pray I can be a good example. I've gained a lot of knowledge not just about carrying but how to carry myself from you guys.

    Interesting. By law they're supposed to issue the license within 90 days with the option of revoking it if they decide you're unworthy.

    I contacted them numerous times via email. I was always told that my file was on the research table. I didn't want to get too pushy.

    Good thinking. They don't like it when we get that way.
    I would rather die on my feet, than to live on my knees.

    In Georgia, one must wait until 5 years after misdemeanor conviction, so maybe they held your application until you met the OK requirements.

    Here is KS it is also 90 days by law. Believe me, right now in KS you will be waiting every bit of the 90 days.

    I believe they really wanted to deny me but could not justify it and were hoping I would just go away.

    Congrats on your license I believe it is also 90 days in Florida. You were more patient than I would have been.

    That would make me mad too. I think NH has spoiled me. Our application is the size of an index card and they have 14 days to approve you, which they always do. The law here is basically that anyone who can purchase will be approved

    Sounds like you were thinking right. Showing patience and getting yourself squared away is really good stuff. My wife asks that you send to her how you did it so she can start the program with me. Sassy woman. Congrats Dono! Glad to hear this report, especially on the last day of a miserable year, kind of ends the year on a high note.

    Patience paid off & now you can legally carry after all that time. At least you didn't die of old age before you got it, lol. Congratulations!
