    10-day Countdown Has Begun!

    As it turned out, I neglected to include my long-form DD-214 with the characterization of service notated on it, so 39 days after originally submitting my paperwork, I received a Notice of Suspension from the county clerk regarding my application.

    So, like a good little Marine, I rooted around my house and (God bless 'er) my wife told me where I could find the long-form original copy we had stashed away. I made copies and was down at the courthouse the next day to drop off my supplementary information.

    This was two weeks ago.

    Today, after being somewhat exasperated by the wait, I called the courthouse and a sweet old lady answered the phone almost immediately (now that's service!).

    It's on top of the pile she just had delivered to her office, approved, signed, stamped, and notarized, with a gold star for extra measure. She just had to mail it out, and they don't mail until next week. I could pick it up, but I don't want to miss the hours at work.

    By this time next Friday, I will be legally concealably armed in Virginia.

    Walmart report forthcoming.

    I would forgo the hours at work and go and pick it up.

    Well, whatever you do, enjoy, and be safe.

    Start making the shopping list for the mandatory trip To Wally World. It's a kind of unspoken rule that your 1st foray out in the public is to take a trip to Wal-Mart. They should start issuing gold star stickers when you leave showing that you have completed this course.

    enjoy the Nachos

    Congrats

    Find a few friends to take with u... 1 or 2 fellow CCW's (maybe the'll treat ).... & a few undecided so they can see how little the notice; THEN HAND 'EM THE PAPERWORK & A STAMPED APPLICATION ENVELOPE & TELL 'EM THIER NACHOS ARE ON U
