Sent the application and everything off through the local sheriff's department the second week of January. Although the official time limit for the "flash pak" to come in is 90 days, everyone says 3-6 weeks.
So, I'm on week 5. Been patiently watching the mailbox. No stress. Then yesterday, looking at my bank statement, I noticed that although the check from the local SD was cleared within days of writing it, the check that was mailed to the state police with the application package hasn't shown up yet.
Now I'm thinking, "Oh great, somebody lost the whole thing. The state police don't even have it and I'll have to wait 90 days before I can even ask someone to look into it."
I know I'm probably wrong and just worrying needlessly.
Sheesh. Thanks for "listening".
