    20 days of not being able to carry

    I am legal again, just picked up my permit from the Sheriff's office. My old permit expired April 15th, it took the Commonwealth of Kentucky almost a full month to process my renewal. I filed for my renewal April 1st. So I was naked for 20 days. As soon as I got back in the truck from picking up my permit the gun came out of the glovebox and back on my side where it belongs. Since this was a renewal I didn't feel obligated to do the Walmart thing, but I did have to go to Lowes and check on prices for a new bathtub. There goes that cash I was wanting to use to buy a new gun. Oh well, like Jed Clampett said, "The lord will provide what we need, but it is our responsibility to keep ourselves washed." or words to the effect.

    Time lapse in Texas can be a SERIOUS gap. Renewals are supposed to be processed in 45 days, new liscenses in 90. Right now the renewals are running nearly 90 for some & many of the 1st timers are running way over 100.
    If you do not get started as soon as you are eligable, you can really have a "naked" gap.
    Carry 24-7 or guess right.

    It's funny how it's handled from state to state.I from Maine and when you go for renewal it always takes longer than it's suppose to so our old license is
    grandfathered until we get our new permit.My permit took 62 days even though
    the law says it's suppose to be done in 30 days!

    I"m in Missouri. My wife and I had ours within two weeks of taking our paperwork in. I read about you guys in other states having to wait for 60, 90 days.
    I wonder why it's such a bid difference from state to state?

    It's been almost a full month waiting for our's; we've heard some folks got their's in 3 weeks in Oregon. But they are good for 4 years which is nice ($60 renewal) because someone told me it was a 2 year renewal initially.
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    "I filed for my renewal April 1st."

    That was optimistic!

    There is a 90 day grace period here, which I think is a long time. And this is not gun country by any means.

    I mean that after your license expires, you can carry on that expired license for 90 more days whether you have a renewal application in or not. It is automatically extended. I think that is great, so you do not have to be without a firearm for any amount of time, not even one day.
    Kind of surprises me here in gun country :) Here, you would expect them to have you not carry at all, if they could.

    It took over a month to get my renewal from KY. I was unlicensed for a couple of weeks.
