So let me vent a little bit here about my NC pistol purchase permit headaches. Here in NC to purchase a handgun, you must go to the sheriff and apply for the permit to purchase, you pay 5 dollars for every petit you want and are told that due to volume they can take up to 30 days!!!!! I and others most of the time p into the sheriffs office dip off the application and will have a notification in the mail within a week that there ready fr pick up. I have my shield on layaway and is ready to picked up but the damn sheriff wont do my permit until the 30th day!!!! Any NC folks here that have had similar headaches withy mecklenburg sheriff taking his sweet time while you as a law abiding citizen wait for his blessing? End rant, Tim Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
