Clue me in, are you saying you have to make an appointment that takes 30 days just apply for the CHP? Is this in Meck county? I'm just up the road on LKN in Iredell and it was only 45 days for CHP and you walked in waited 5 minutes and you had your purchase permit.
Woooohooooo! and congrats on surviving an obviously flawed process to exercise your rights.

Part of the permit's legalese states that the Sheriff's office did a background check and nothing in it would be a violation of law with me owning a handgun. Then another part said that the Sheriff is satisfied that I have demonstrated good moral character or something. Weird. *shrug*
However, if you have a CCW, it acts as a purchase permit, but the wait is REALLY long here...more on that below.
Also, as I understand it, if you want to purchase a rifle/shotgun though, you don't need a permit to purchase, you just go to an FFL dealer and they call it in! Weird, huh?
Here in Meck Co, you MUST have an appointment to apply for your CCHP. Once you get the appointment and turn in everything to the Sheriff's Office, you wait about 90 days (they tell me) to have your permit come in, get approved, whatever. But when I called them to make my appointment last month, they told me the EARLIEST APPOINTMENT AVAILABLE was July 23rd! (I called in mid-April!) Then they found a cancellation, so I was able to get in for June 23rd.
I call daily to see if there are any more cancellations. They may just get so sick of hearing my voice, they decide to let me in early, right?

Now, if you have a ccw permit, then you won't need to get purchase permits and can purchase firearms at your leisure.

WhooooHooooo! Congrats. I am learning alot on this site. I thought Ohio was a bit complicated to get a CHL until reading some of the posts here from other states We don't need no stinkin permit to just buy a handgun. That is a You have to take a 12 hour approved course and submit a copy of the certificate of completion along with your application and $55 to your county sheriff or the sheriff of an adjacent county to get your CHL. Up until the election, it only took about 10-14 days to get your permit, from what I heard from friends. Since the election it has been taking a lot longer in some counties. Took my wife and I 4 weeks and 1 day, which I thought long until reading of some of your waits here.
