    I just can't imagine the discomfort of those long waits.

    I was a bit surprised but pleased a couple of weeks after mailing my packet to find a small envelope in the mail with my permit.

    I know the feeling. Once I started calling though I lost a little interest. Place a few orders for holsters and the like. See what will get to your door first!

    What REALLY sucks is when you've waited and waited and..(you get the point) and an envelope FINALLY arrives from the ASP and you tear it open and find..a fingerprint card with a note saying that yours were unclassifiable and to have more taken and send 'em back and by the way,this will add another 4-6 weeks to your wait time.

    You didn't have to do that. You should have told him the truth. It takes a minimum of 90 days if he is lucky and if he makes the mailman mad he will hold it for another 30 days just to aggravate him.

    Be sure the mailman doesn't see you checking the mailbox and it will help if you leave some milk and cookies for him.

    I just received my Kansas permit yesterday. I sent the stuff in on Apr. 18, and for the life of me I can't figure out why it takes so long. I have been checking the box everyday for a month myself.

    Anyway, I feel your pain. Hang in there.

    Today is Tuesday----I say forget checking the mailbox for a couple of days and you'll see it on Friday--that will make a great weekend for you. A watched mailbox is like a watched clock or a watched pot of water on the stove. Just to take out some of your anticipation frustration--try dry firing at your mailbox for ten minutes and you'll feel better.

    It took mine 57 or 58 days. I was just up in Kissimmee today.

    I remember expecting to wait 2-3 weeks for my permit. I get home from work one day, and the first thing out of my Dad's mouth was "Our permits came in!" I was stunned that it only took 5 days instead of the 2-3 weeks we were quoted.
