    Temp permit came Friday going to get the reg permit Monday

    I got a letter friday from my local PD stating my temp permit was approved and I could pick it up M-F 8am-3:30pm. It was 3:14 so I hungup on the person I was on the phone with and jumped in the car so I could make it by 3:30pm. Now Monday morning I have to go to the DPS and get the regular permit then I'm good to go. I plan on being there when they open getting in done and stopping at the gun store on the way home. I may or may not buy something Monday but I plan on shooting a few different guns to see what feels best for me. I was originally leaning towards the Glock 26 but I want to check out a bunch now.

    Congrats.

    I see a trip to Wally World in your near future.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Congratulations.

    How long did it take your local PD to issue the temp?

    If you to to Middletown, it will take you about 10 minutes to get the permit, not counting the time standing in line. :)

    Congrats on your new permit. CT is now a little safer.

    Congrats...Just make sure that Glock 26 stays at the top of your list!!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    walked into DPS and was back out in under 15 minutes with permit in hand. Went straight to the gun store and spent about 1.5 hours shot 5 different guns. After all that I still couldn't make up my mind and didn't get a gun. Maybe I will be able to pull the trigger tomorrow (pun intended).

    thanks only about 4 or 5 ahead of me and they moved the line pretty quick.

    I also tried to reply to you PM but for some reason I can't.

    Well I went back to the gun store tonight and picked up the Glock 26. Now I need to get out and put a few 100 rounds thru it.
