Seems like every county in this state has their own rules. In Putnam, we need to bring the paperwork in, no mailing in allowed. The good thing is amendments take less than 5 days. Some counties issue coupons in advance, so you can visit a shop and walk out with the gun. I like that, ALOT.
My friend has a permit in Delaware County and he recently went to the clerk and paid for 2 coupons, he bought a gun and had 7 days to notify the clerk of the transaction, he still has a coupon for another purchase on him
