Darn FBI Couldn't....
Read the fingerprint card that was submitted for my Arkansas CHL. I got an envelope in the mail today and was finally relieved the permit had shown up. Relief went to sheer disappointment when I find a letter saying I needed to be re-fingerprinted and send them back to the FBI since they were not readable. Looks like it will be another 6 to 7 week wait on them again. A LEO did the fingerprinting during our class and they looked nice and clear to me so who knows.
Oh well, my new G27 and High Noon Split Decision holster will continue to set and wait for deployment

Now that sucks....
In Missouri, the Sheriff must issue permit in 45 days whether back ground check is complete or not. Once issued, if FBI or Highway Patrol checks come back not qualified, then the Sheriff has to come revoke your permit. So... I would think, (hopefully) if you had to re-submit fingerprints due to prints not being readable, they would let you keep permit until that comes back.
It is kind of screwy but the law was written that permits must be issued within 45 days irregardless if all checks are complete.

In my industry we have to fingerprint people. We always get three cards from them because more times than not they are rejected by the FBI. After 2 rejects they have to accept the 3rd.

do you submit two sets of fingerprints ? They've been requesting two sets to make sure that at least one of them is readable. It really has cut down on the number of sendbacks.

mine were scanned elecronically. The machine could tell instantly wether or not the print was good or not.

Same here, PLUS they can make copies for use in other states non-resident applications.

I had the same problem when I applied for non-res. FL. Emotions all jiggy when the envelope came in the mail only to be dashed when the notice for resubmission of the finger print card greeted me.
Well, there are enough of those bumper stickers around. We ought to know happens...
Don't be blaming the wrong party (-ies).

That is very common here in Oklahoma. The OSBI is far worse than the FBI about bouncing prints though, so if they make it to the FBI they're usually fine.

They did that to me too. Just go to the local police department and have them do it.
It will not take that long once they get the fingerprint card since they all ready processed everything else.
I think I got mine the next week after I sent the other card into them.

I only sent in one card. I think I will request two cards done when I go to ASP headquaters Tuesday. I am under the impression AR does not have the electronic option available. But I will inquire, never hurts to ask

It helps a lot to have a competent fingerprint technician take the prints. It's not as easy as it looks. You can help by relaxing as much as possible and letting the tech manipulate each finger, without trying to help. A good technician will review the card on the spot and roll another set if the first one looks questionable.

the electronic prints are fun. they are really cool and the lady that did em for me was really nice & we had a good talk about gun control :)

I hope I don't have a problem with prints on my CCW... since none were taken. I assumed it was just a Kentucky thing (we're not very formal in this state). Hopefully, the sheriff's office didn't overlook anything. From the size of the CCDW book I saw, the sheer volume of permits would seem to make the procedure pretty common. Enough to eliminate stupid mistakes, anyway.

Man, am I glad we live just across the Mississippi in West Tennessee. I'd hate to have to go through that kind of hassle and wait for my carry permit.
I hope it goes well for you this time and it doesn't take too long. Good luck.
