    Should I Be Shocked?

    I will be taking my CCW class in a couple of weeks and per a suggestion from a friend and CCW holder, I called my my county Sheriffs office to make an appointment to make application. I was told that they were now booking appointment for Sept. 4th. I thought WOW and asked if they are that busy. I thought this wait was crazy. Now here in Ohio we can also go to adjacent county Sheriff's departments so I called the one that's the next closest. I got a hold of their answer machine and left a message. The next day the clerk called my wife and told her that they were booking the week of July 1st. When I arrived home after work I called her back to set a date. Once again I got a hold of their answer machine and left another message. Again the next day she called my wife and told her that she was going to be at the office until 4:00 and to have me call her back. Again when I got home a called her and finally got to talk to a human. She then told me that they were now booking the week of July 8th. I told her that I was on vacation on Fri. the 12th and made my appointment for that morning. Two months is still a long wait but it's better than four!

    I never heard of having to go through the local Sheriff's office for a CHL.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    You have to have an appointment to submit an application? Here in the Peoples Republic of Minnesota you just take a copy of your training certificate, the completed State application that you print out on line and your drivers license. They fill out their part, give you a receipt and then in 30 days (or less) you will get your permit. Forgot the $100.00 "fee" for your rights.

    Lot's of people are getting their permits. Can you take a course that is approved by the Sheriff?

    In West Virginia you take a NRA Certified Firearms Safety Course, or the one offered by your County Sheriff or the adjacent County if you need. Shoot a hand gun, get your "Certificate" and go to the Sheriff's Office of the County you reside and submit your application and of course, your fee.

    One of the guys I know who plays bass guitar in a band I'm in got his Ohio Permit recently. He took the course from a retired LEO, only one in the class so he got to shoot all the LEO's stuff. Went to the Sheriff, submitted paperwork and got his permit. I don't know how long he had to wait, but he has one now.

    I had to go through the local sheriff's office for my ten prints after I took the CCW class. Sheriff's office then runs the prints through the FBI and calls when the results are back and gives you a piece of paper to take to the DMV. The DMV then issues the CCW permit. It looks like a driver's license.

    And that's where all the trouble started when the director of DOR (Dept. of Records) released our personal data to the Social Security Administration, checking for anybody who has claimed SSI disability for mental issues. They did it in 2011 and again in 2012.

    And then the poo hit the fan and the director of DOR resigned. He violated Missouri state statutes.

    That's probably more information than you needed.. Sorry.

    Lake County Sheriffs office (unfortunately not adjacent to me), is first come first serve. A guy I work with lives in Cuyahoga Co. went to Lake Co and two hours later left with his permit.

    Sheriffs office handles things in Iowa, Montana, and Wyoming as well.

    In Iowa, dropped off app and fee on Friday. Permit arrived in the mail on Tuesday.

    Dan Smith? He told us he was one of a group of people who crafted the law. Great teacher!
