Sheriff called this morning to tell me my permit was ready. (Just AFTER the gun show, of course). Picked it up after visiting the chiropractor.
I've taken to carrying around the house, just to get used to it, and have found that after a few weeks, I'm uncomfortable WITHOUT it. Now I won't have to disarm to leave the house. Yay!
Not too bad of a wait, either - Johnston County, NC, they told me 45-60 days when I applied on October 22, and here it is just a month later.
