    when your plastic arrived ?

    i was curious, how many of you got a letter or something when your CHL arrived in the mailbox?
    mine came attached to another sheet of paper so it wouldn't rattle around, but thats all.
    no letter of congrats,or warning about you better use this right, nothing....it was sort of anti-climatic.did your plastic come w/anything extra in the envelope?

    In Spokane, if you want it mailed, you have to provide the postage. Since I didn't have a stamp on me, I just went back in and picked it up after 30 days.

    You didn't get the State check for $1,000 to fund your first gun and rig? I didn't realize they'd discontinued that.........

    they might send you a letter telling you that you need to do something like pull some file or that something was done incorrectly. the letter you got shows signs of that happening. it happened to me after i sent them an email.
    they told me i had to go find a file that they couldn't find all the info on for some reason. i did what they said and mailed it to them two weeks later, but they approved my license one day after i sent the letter w/the documents they wanted, so they approved my license before they got what they asked me for to begin with. go figure.hopefully they wont send you a letter though they are never good news. some just worse than others.if it goes to 60 days and nothing,i would send them an email. they are pretty good about answering them within 2 days.

    Florida sends you a brochure of Q & A's pertaining to the use of deadly force for lawful self-defense, along with a list of states that have reciprocity with FL...
    FL also sends additional info on how to get answers to ANY other questions or concerns via phone or on-line.
    A phone call to the Dept of Ag is a positive experience...

    i dont think they allow anyone to pick them up in person in TX.,but im not 100% sure about it.
    i think a lot of people would rather have it that way.

    In New York, you need to pick it up in person.
