    Finally!

    Sandy and I applied for our CCWs on our 35th anniversary in October. Finally got the call today: "Show up at the sheriff's dept. Monday for fingerprints and photos".

    Looks like we'll have our permits next week. 56 years old, but never too late, I guess.

    Now to order that holster from K-Man that I've been putting off since Thanksgiving. I guess I'll be carrying a J-frame until then. Sandy has decided on my (her) KelTec P3AT in a DiSantis Nemesis for now. She doesn't want the gun in a fanny pack.

    Oh, my carry gun, if it works out, will be my Colt Series 80, at least in the winter.

    At last eh Larry - I wonder if some occasional badgering has worked its magic - maybe I mentioned it before and I'll bet Steve did

    Good to hear - never too late - heck look at me! (on second thoughts don't - it may harm your vision LOL). Mind you, guess I was about same age when I kicked of so - kudos sir anyways.

    Wow! Our sheriff has decided to make this "shall issue" a money making deal. I asked him before and he said, "Yeah, just bring $50 down, fill out some papers and its yours"

    Seems the state says he can charge "up to $100", now that's what it costs. $100 for the SO plus $52.50 for the CBI, gets darn expensive, especially for two of us.

    Redneck Repairs, my I ask, what county are you in?

    Heck Larry - that is outa line IMO. ''Shall Issue - with appropriate payment of your savings''!

    I know here is opposite extreme to many places but hell - even tho it's gone up it's just $25 or $26 - forget which. Plus it is - in my county anways - done on the spot - no crazy waiting to have it sent or collected - when they decide you can.

    Congrats Larry on your CCW permit. I have had mine for about 10 years now but have only recently become more active on carrying. Have to say good choice on the Colt, I am a big fan of the 1911.
    Things here are pretty simple, received my permit the same day and payed $25 for a photo permit.
    Good luck, be safe and stay armed.
