Sandy and I applied for our CCWs on our 35th anniversary in October. Finally got the call today: "Show up at the sheriff's dept. Monday for fingerprints and photos".

Looks like we'll have our permits next week. 56 years old, but never too late, I guess.

Now to order that holster from K-Man that I've been putting off since Thanksgiving. I guess I'll be carrying a J-frame until then. Sandy has decided on my (her) KelTec P3AT in a DiSantis Nemesis for now. She doesn't want the gun in a fanny pack.

Oh, my carry gun, if it works out, will be my Colt Series 80, at least in the winter.

At last eh Larry - I wonder if some occasional badgering has worked its magic - maybe I mentioned it before and I'll bet Steve did :smile:

Good to hear - never too late - heck look at me! (on second thoughts don't - it may harm your vision LOL). Mind you, guess I was about same age when I kicked of so - kudos sir anyways.

Wow! Our sheriff has decided to make this "shall issue" a money making deal. I asked him before and he said, "Yeah, just bring $50 down, fill out some papers and its yours"

Seems the state says he can charge "up to $100", now that's what it costs. $100 for the SO plus $52.50 for the CBI, gets darn expensive, especially for two of us.

******* Repairs, my I ask, what county are you in?

Heck Larry - that is outa line IMO. ''Shall Issue - with appropriate payment of your savings''!

I know here is opposite extreme to many places but hell - even tho it's gone up it's just $25 or $26 - forget which. Plus it is - in my county anways - done on the spot - no crazy waiting to have it sent or collected - when they decide you can.

WOW!.......wow. Here in Michigan it cost you right around $250 in the end. Now THAT is what I call money making.

Congrats Larry on your CCW permit. I have had mine for about 10 years now but have only recently become more active on carrying. Have to say good choice on the Colt, I am a big fan of the 1911.
Things here are pretty simple, received my permit the same day and payed $25 for a photo permit.
Good luck, be safe and stay armed.

Definitely not late at all. If you haven't needed the permit before now, think of the money you've saved over the years!

I got mine at about the same age, partly because my state (and yours) has only been "shall issue" for 2 or 3 years and I didn't seek a non-resident permit anywhere else before that.

Wow I paid $10 for a 4 year permit and got it in 5 days...and I sent mine in the mail
...hmmm
*duck* :wink:

I'm not sure how it is in other counties but here in Kalamazoo county it takes about 45 days to hear back from the gun board.

the lesson - never take it for granted cuz you could live in michigan aka "the big suck".
