Finally went through all the procedures today with my Sheriff's office! Now I get the fun, looooong 90 day wait. They say it will probably be the full 90 too. He asked if I sanded my fingerprints, I assume he was joking, but we had to do several extra sets to get good ones. To celebrate I ordered a new Smith & Wesson M&P compact 9mm with CT laser grip factory installed (new in the 2009 catalog). Got a great deal from my new favorite dealer! In the meantime, I have a new Emerson Combat Karambit to keep me relatively safe (and a Fox Labs OC spray). There's a pic of the knife and my Nitecore light. I'll update once I get the 9 next week!
