Glad I settled on the Missouri side.
Took the CCP class on Saturday, 23 May.
Dropped off paperwork and fees and had fingerprints taken at the Platte County Sheriff's Office Monday, 25 May.
Got the phone call Thursday, 11 June that my permit was approved and I could pick up my blue slip anytime and go get my permit. From my figuring, that's 13 working days (had a long weekend). Not too shabby.
Showed up at 0800 Friday, 12 June. Took about 5 minutes to sign and notarize the certificate. Walked across the street to the Licensing Bureau. They verified my citizenship, took 11 dollars to pay for the seperate ID with the CCW endorsement and took a picture. Walked out at 0820 as a newly minted CCW holder.
Very impressed with the professionalism and courtesy of all folks involved at the Sherrif's Office and Licensing Bureau. No strange looks and no foot dragging. One of the few decent experiences I've had with any type of bureaucracy in the last 45 years.
