    A friend of mine applied in January and still doesn't have his. I took my class in April of 2010 and didn't receive mine until mid September 2010, I know how you feel.

    Great time to review all the various laws surrounding use of force and the awesome responsibilty we are entrusted with when we carry. I don't want to be one of Obama's "poster children" of mis-use of a CCW!!!m:)

    Been carrying daily for 17 years now... not 1 single LEO encounter involving my gun.

    Probably would not have carried in the beginning until it arrived... but given the one time I did need it... I'd also never stop doing it for ANY reason.

    Are you referring to you carrying before ccw and needed it?

    No... it was after, I was legal, and the mere presence of the gun did the trick. In fact, I did not even fully draw it. Grabbing it and shouting HALT was enough to send the Goblins scurrying away.

    I simply meant that 17 years ago... I thought I needed "permission"... and now, I don't.

    Tack

    Thats great it stopped there! Yeah being a female and out by myself some i am looking forward to knowing i have "back up" lol. I dont like going many places alone because i have been put in some dangerous situations in broad daylight and bystanders could give a crap less.

    Yeah I hear ya.. Get this.. I live in not so nice NYS...
    Turned 21 in October 2012 applied in November same year.. Was told to wait till June 12th 2013 to get finger printed.. Called them 2 weeks before to say that I got a new job an can't take off so I'm going to miss my appointment.. With an additude I got put on hold for 15 min then she said, yeah I can squeeze you in, October 5th 3013!!!!!!!!

    I said right there u know what ill pass now.. Not only would I wait till then but then my 6 month waiting period starts when you get fingerprinted and they are actually taking 8+ months now.. So I wasn't Iooking to get it till may 2014..

    I plan to leave this state by 2015 so to pay 300 bucks for a permit for 5 months was crazy..

    Ohh and I already have my FL non resident permit.. Sad I can't even get the one for my home state...

    You should see the waiting list for a suppressor/class 3.:mad: The backlog is huge and they cut the number of processors.

    Don't know what state your in but... in most states "open carry" is legal... May be an option until your CCW arrives. ;)

    NOTE: Check your local laws on OC for yourself... Internet advise on legal matters is worth just about what you pay for it. Good Luck
