ok so i went and turned in my app did fingerprints and all yesterday.
today i get a call from the sheriff for a meeting we sit and talk awile then he grants my permit. im sitting there thinking wait this is cali it cant be this easy then he stands up shakes my hand and says "my secratary needs to finish the paperwork she will give you a call tomarrow to come pick up your permit." i think wow did that just happen but im not a rich person. so there is hope for cali amen
