I just dropped off my pistol permit application on Wednesday. It was not a bad experience and went rather quickly. I asked why we were forced to sign off on a "Sportsman" restriction in order to apply and was told that the judge doesn't grant anything but that or less. They said they wouldn't even take my application without the form. Wanting my permit, I just went with it and filled the form out.
They said I should be called for fingerprints within 2-3 weeks and then it could take 6 months after that.
So, we will wait and see. Seems like it has taken anywhere from 3-6 months for others in the big county...
