I stopped at the County Clerks office today to check on the status of my permit and make sure the was no confusion with my address since I moved since applying. When she went to find my application she pull out a 16" high stack of applications to look through.
She said its been pretty busy, I'll say. Our application forms and accompanying paperwork is about 5 pages and our gun board meets once a month (2nd Tuesday). That is a lot of people considering my county only has a population of about 45,000.
No luck on mine though the background check isn't back. I hope it gets there before 10th.
