well i got finger printed today for my california ccw already pre approved by the sheriff. i signed up to take the 16 hour class for next weekend jan 21 and 22,2006 so as soon as i get the call from the sheriffs dept that my prints cleared and they willve it in about 3 to 4 weeks depending on the fbis workload. i will leave work early and go get my weapons inspected and go get the permit i hope to ha. i have florida and utah already and have a dod secret clearance the fbi is going to laff at my prints since they have done them 3 times in the last 2 years with no changes. oh and it was live scan prints very cool how they do that the gal said when i was done that they were already in the fbis data base by the time i left. hopefully that makes the process faster. again i am just a regular guy not a cronie or anything.
