    As I was looking through the forum at how long it took to get my CCW back, I was getting a little depressed. I turned my paperwork in on the 19 of November this year and was told that they were backlogged and it would take upwards to 90 days for me to get it back. To my surprise when I got home on sat the 15th of December there it was in the mail. To say the least Utah you are awesome. Less than 30 days.... Wahooo

    All of you suck..., 'cause here in Illinois, God himself couldn't get a concealed carry license. I can't even imagine legally carrying a firearm. Under no circumstances can Joe citizen carry in Il. Though, I remember Chicago Aldermen used to be allowed, don't know if that's still true.
    Every once in awhile, a lawmaker starts the process for CC, and it gets shot down almost immediately. There are some towns, I believe up north by Chicago, that have banned firearms all-together (Morton Grove, for example) or require them to be licensed just to own. Plus having a Firearm Owners ID card, which only allows you to own, not carry anyway. :v
    No, No I'm not bitter, what would make you think that?

    Move to Arizona! We need the help.

    Open carry, CCW must issue after a test.
    Short Barreled Rifles, Class 3 full auto, destructive device and suppressors make you cool to talk to, not a threat, in the eyes of cops. :party:

    Passed the CHL tests yesterday (244/250 and 100) and mailed applications today :D According to the instructor we should expect at least 2 month wait - there are only 4 women at DPS processing applications.
    A funny thing, the guy that sat next to me came in with a Steyr and is left-handed like me -how small a world. I turned him on to this forum so we may have another member

    Good ol' U.S. Postal Service, another shining example of what happens when the federal guvmint decides they should get into the business of... well, business.

    Here's a rhetorical question: Why do they call guvmint workers civil servants when they aren't usually civil and they hardly ever give any actual service? :mrgreen:

    Civil servant = double oxymoron? :mrgreen:

    Just went through my renewal here again,every 5 years.
    Told me to expect a 6 to 8 week turnaround.
    Letter arrived 6 weeks to the day for pick up. I guess i should be happy ?
    Told the bride this was the last time I was going to be in the county
    f/renewal. Next time I'll be in a more friendly environment.

    Sent mine in 12/23/07 (earlier post) - checked on-line today and found out
    license had been issued :party: - should receive tomorrow or Monday. Would be really cool to get it the same day I get the holster from Rich - which I recieved notice today that it had been shipped. With this kind of a day, I think I will buy a lottery ticket tonight!!!!

    Where's the "more friendly environment" you're moving to, DKHAN?

    North Carolina isn't as gun friendly as Texas or Arizona yet, but it ain't bad. We've got reciprocity agreements with 30 states, I can go from Florida to Pennsylvania and be "legal" all the way. :mrgreen:

    That's odd. I'd think you'd have trouble driving through South Carolina. I know Virginia and Texas licences are no good there.

    Reciprocity means North Carolina permit holders have full rights in all 30 of the states on the list, same rights as a South Carolina permit holder. :D
