    License quest.. app in

    Well, I drove all the way across hillsdale county today(Michigan) to put in my cpl app in crappy snowy weather. They told me if I went right away to get printed I probably wouldn't make the december gun meeting and would have to wait till January 10th, and if they approve they send the notice out that day. I'm still gonna try to make the gun meeting this month, and im going to get fingerprinted tomorrow between 8am and 10am. I will have to say the lady at the county clerks office, was kinda very rude- actually everyone workin there was. I asked em if they had an idea how long the county had been taking, they acted annoyed to be asked. I asked for directions toward the sherrifs for printing, they acted all put out. When she wrote down the hours for printing for me, I kind of commented like 'man they picked some wierd times' and some other lady in there piped in 'well they cant please everyone'. I was friendly and smiling the whole time.. and the place was empty, so its not like they had a line or something.

    Anyhow, thats the latest info in my quest. Cheers.

    It Is Now A Waiting Game...

    and it is a 'game'. Treat the 'witches' with the respect that they DO NOT deserve...never burn your bridges!

    Once you get your permit, you won't have to deal with them anymore... Oh, and yes, once you have your permit and one of them thar' employees is being robbed in the parking lot and calls for your assistance...just walk away...You can't please everybody, you know what I mean?

    Enjoy the wait...it won't take that long...

    Was your original CPL still good or did it lapse during your renewal wait.

    When the messenger arrives and says 'Don't shoot the messenger,' it's a good idea to be prepared to shoot the messenger, just in case.

    Government bureaucracy vs. commercial business

    Your story of rude treatment by the government bureaucrats illustrates perfectly the difference between government and a commercial business. If a business treated you like that, you would go across the street and deal with their competitors, and the rude business would eventually fail.

    Maybe what we need is two competing government agencies, both issuing CCW permits and getting incentive pay for how many they can issue?

    I live in Oakland County and got my permit in 16 days, which included two weekends. Last I checked, Oakland issues the most licenses. Clerk's office was very friendly too.
