    71 days and counting

    I know I need to "be patient, chill out, do cross words, practice carrying at home" and all that stuff, but I cant help but count the days. I only hope that 90 days is the max. Thank you for allowing me to rant.

    Don't wait around the house, you need to be out and about looking for ammo deals.

    Hang loose, it'll be here in no time.

    Stay armed...soon, very soon...stay safe!

    I have been waiting and my app has been proccessing now for "83" Days. I called DPS last friday to make shure there wasnt a problem but all i got was a very rude lady on the other end saying that i just needed to wait and she couldnt tell me anything. I only called one time before at the 60 day mark and its not like i have been bothering them. Anyway during the phone call the not so friendly lady said the turnaround time has been around 90 days. In a world where you can get just about anything fairly quickly, 90 days does seem to be just a little OUTRAGEOUS..

    It will be a great day when it comes! A truly great feeling.
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    I suppose you can't do much except wait it out. When I applied for my permit, I was told 2-3 weeks processing time. I was pleasantly surprised to find my permit waiting for me 5 days later. I cannot imagine waiting 90+ days just to be able to protect myself while thugs are out there carrying guns with no permit.

    I didn't mind the wait, but mine was only 29 days total here in Indiana from start to finish. However, it came while I was on vacation and the first day I was gone my sister checked my mail and fed my dog and there it was. Then I had a whole week on vacation thinking "I could be packing right now" I was as excited to get home as I was to leave 10 days prior to returning.
    They can't take your right to own a firearm. They can ask with force and you can answer any way you choose.

    78 days and counting for me. The Sheriff's office said 90 days, so just another couple weeks for me...hopefully.
