    Hi

    Well, I suppose I should talk about how I got here. Some years ago a friend took me shooting with him. He was borrowing his uncles pistols. His uncle had quite a collection about 10 or so pistols. I got a chance to try out many diffrent pistols and many diffrent calibers. I settled on a glock 21, I think it was the slower projectile and more predictable recoil, less snappy IMO. I have since gotten myself a glock 21 sf and after reading these forums for a couple months, a kel-tec p3at. Another friend took me to shoot his AR's and AK's recently and I forsee a rifle purchase in my near future.
    I love my glock but I wanted something smaller to have in my car, and perhaps when I feel the need, carry. Unforetunetly, my prints were rejected and I have to resend them in the next couple weeks, I'm so dissappointed. Hopefully, I don't have to wait another few months after resending them, I can just get processed. Perhaps someone here can shed some light on that situation.

    It's not what you go thru in life, but how well you go thru it.

    Hope the prints issue is easily resolved. Interested to know the reason for rejection - indistinct?

    Hi there from Arkansas!

    Don't worry about the prints, the second ones will be just fine. They did that to me on my Arkansas and Florida permits. But once you resend the prints, it's pretty quick.

    All of that sounds eerily familiar to me. Tell them you work in construction when they take your prints. I did when they took mine, but they turned out okay.

    Welcome to the forum. I know a friend of a friend that plays guitar for a living. Finger picker. Several fingers don't have recognizable prints at all.

    Welcome from Montana.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
