So what did you use as the excuse to get the permit? Cause you have to justify it to a judge. There was a time where you could only get a permit if you transported large amounts of money or you had to be under extreme threat of death/violence! Basically unless the judge liked you- ie you supported his election -no permit! I always though it was funny the Gumba's all got there permits very easy but normal folks couldn't!
I didn't need any such excuse here in Idaho to get my permit-BGC pay my fee permit granted $60 done OC'd until it came!
