    Permit just came in the mail !!!!

    Just went to the mailbox and the permit has finally arrived !!!!

    One thing somewhat puzzled me about the process which has taken just under 2 months to complete.

    About a month after I sent the initial application in, I get a letter with another fingerprint card requesting another set due to the first set being smudged.

    Ok, no problem. I go to get it done that day.

    Sadly I leave the detention center in my hometown, which is the only place around here to get fingerprints taken and clearly notice that the current set of fingerprints are horribly smudged !!! The deputy taking them even stated to me that what i got was about as good as they could get them. I even mentioned it to him.

    I send off my 2nd set of prints and about 1 month later, today, I get my permit. All the while I just knew they were going to be rejected because they were horribly done.

    Now, has anyone ever had this happen or heard of this same situation ??? I was just wondering if this was some sort of stalling tactic or if there might be a reason for this.

    Doesn't matter now as I have the permit and don't have to fingerprint again for Louisiana permit renewals, but I sure did notice that what I sent back was of Extremely poor quality and still got the permit.

    I'm happy though !!!!!

    Congrats on the permit. Maybe they could combine the good prints from both to get all of your fingers.

    I thought about that and it may be what they did in this case.

    First of all welcome..

    Finger print smearing is common, and digital is the way to go.

    In your case, possibility they could get one good set out of both print cards.

    Just a thought

    I have to admit that is odd that they would accept another less that perfect set of prints, and can only assume yall are right about combining both sets to make a good set......with that said....WHO CARES....YOUR IN....CONGRATULATIONS & start/continue training....I had my permit for a few months before I realized, I have no clue what I am doing. So now its a session a week tactical and 500 to 1500 rounds a week there and at the land with our group....

    Again...Congrats
