I applied for my pistol permits and license around 2 weeeks ago, my town of Toms River is notorious for taking 6 months for everything to come back. Just wanted to see how long it took everyone else. I was still able to buy a gun and shoot at "sure shot pistol range" in lakewood, took a safety course, just cant take the gun home until I get my permit. also I wanted to see if we have anything good in our state in terms of competitions and advanced firearms training, or am I gonna have to go out of state.
