Default Welcome to the club!

The added bonus to passing the test is if you get pulled over the leo's will
cut you loose very fast since you have passed a background check!

The class I took was 8 hours. $60

We went over the laws and normal things, situations, then went over safety after lunch and had to qualify on the pistol range. We had to shoot at least 78% Center mass to get passed.

Then we held our targets while they took a picture of you and the target for their records. While we were in the class, his
Wife did all of our paperwork and put it in a folder ready for mail. All we had to do was sign it and mail it.

Sounds like you may have paid some administrative fees.

I live in Florida and did the electronic fingerprinting as well. Mine came back in 13 days from the day I mailed it out which really surprised me. My parents and sisters took about 2 months or so. Hope yours comes pretty quick.

Every local govt has their own little twist to the process.

Here in Ky, the class is $75.00. With a range requirement. The range has the option to charge a fee for the range time. I think mine was 10 rounds at 21 feet, needed to score a majority center mass.

Then comes the application fee, which I think mine was $65.00, includes finger printing, 10 years ago but the electronic type. THEN the local sheriff has the balls to charge a $10.00 fee for the freakin passport photo. Other counties allow you to bring it in. Jefferson County nickel and dimes you to death. then wait up to 6 weeks, back 10 years ago, for a "Flash Pack" mailing telling you to come down town and pick it up.
