    After a year, it finally came in the mail...

    I was at work today and my wife called and said "guess what came in the mail today?". I have been waiting for a fairly sizeable check from my old landlord for the security deposit and that was the first thing i guessed. I was wrong. I am now the proud holder of a Massachusetts non resident license to carry concealed. I was going to take a ride to Mass today but I ended up working at the house all day. Anyway I will no longer be leaving the house unarmed. I am happy.

    I can honestly say that it took me a full year. I mailed the original app on March 1, 2008. My advice is to MAKE SURE you have NO blips on your record. See if you can get your criminal record pulled to check it before you spend the 100 dollars to apply. I got lucky and found the right people to deal with and they all helped me out. Dont take no as an answer. Ask why.

    Does this year long wait give you better reciprocity than Utah or Florida?
