    Grats to her. Maybe more people are applying nowadays. I applied about 8 or 9 months ago and mine took 2 weeks to the day from fingerprints to receiving it. Anyway, good luck! :)

    I know this is written alot about "Wally World". Pardon my ignorance (or newbieness), but could someone please enlighten me?

    Congrats on the Mrs.'s permit. Gotta love it when women do this. The girl I am dating, when once discussing a burglary or home invasion asked "Why wouldn't you just shoot them in the foot?" She's slowly coming around!

    No problem..... It's a long standing tradition that first time permit holders make a trip to the neighborhood WalMart (Wally World). The map you see above was developed by one of the long term forum members, Miggy. There's one for the men too. A quick search should dig it out for you.

    Although the map is pretty much tongue in cheek, actually getting out into a crowded environment is a great learning experience for someone who hasn't carried before. It helps them on their way to becoming less self-conscious about carrying and more aware of their surroundings and the responsibility that comes with carrying a loaded, deadly weapon.

    So Wally World, here we come......then pizza at our favorite little place to celebrate!

    Congrats to her.
    I'm kind of surprised she got it so fast.
    Supposedly the Agri Dept is bombarded by applications.

    Good for her.
