    Got a letter today!

    I received a letter from the local Sheriff's office (Gaston County, NC) today saying my application had been approved 7/28 (applied 6/26). It says to contact them after 8/11 to see if they have it and to make arrangements to pick it up. Sooner than I expected!

    Less than a month...good news, it gives you time to plan your WW Trek.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    Glad to see you didn't have a long wait. I hope they have some ammo for your new gun when you go on your wally world walk.

    Been shooting whenever I could find it. I'm finding more .40 than 9 or 357. I take that as a sign that a .40 purchase should be in my immediate future. I mean, you can't just disregard a "sign", can you?

    Congratulations from a fellow Tar Heel. Glad to see that your county isn`t dragging their feet in getting your permit to you. Mine took about 5 weeks and when I got the call I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. Good for you pal.

    Ah, seen. Sorry for not understanding we dont have carry in Canada. They say we can apply for protection of life, but no one has ever gotten one. The best part is they keep your $100 for applying, non-refundable. So I carry when I go to the US. My first time was in VT at Olive Garden restaurant. It seemed right to me since I carry for my occupation, not as a regular citizen. Just like a super hero. The uniform makes the difference you know.

    Not mine, I live in a nice neighborhood too. Criminals do not stay in there’s. The crime in Canada is rising. If you are armed in Canada you are a criminal.

    Congratulations! Good to know one more tarheel is armed legally.
