    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

    So get a ccw. Then you don't have to get the purchase permits..

    Interesting, here in Nebraska the process is fairly simple. You need to renew every three-years, taking about fifteen-minutes and $5.00 to do so. You receive it in about a week. If you have a CCW from the state, it's even easier to purchase a handgun.

    Have you joined GRNC and the NRA in order to change things?

    I should say, I felt your pain... I lived in Char-Meck, and I went with the ccw. (and joined NRA/GRNC) I'm not trying to be critical, I'm trying to help you see that there are options to try and change things for the better if you like, permanently, as well as find a short term solution..

    I have a VA nonresident and really didn't see the benefit at the time to get a NC CHP. I am an NRA memebr but not GRNC, I know that things have come up to get rid of the ppp process but never get passed. At least we have castle doctrine now!

    Yup. And just a few years ago, we did away with the "one handgun a month law".

    Now, if we could just carry into a decent restaurant...:whistling:

    Very glad MO got rid of that stupid law about 7 or 8 years ago.

    The KKK got that law implemented in MO. Back then a permit cost 50 cents. If your skin color was correct you got your permit. By the time they got rid of the law, the permit cost 10 bucks, but the skin color didn't matter anymore.

    Thats' the history behind many of these stupid laws from way back when.
     
  15. You got it lucky. In NJ you apply for the permit, no more then 5 at a time, pay your fees(which can be pricey) then wait for the permits to be delivered to pick them up(which can be up to 3-6 months although state law says 30 days). The permits expire in 3 months(but you can extend them for another 3 months by paying a fee), and you are limited to one handgun per month.

    :wow: 3-6 months even with a 30 day limit? how does that work?

    Our are good for 5 years, but like others have said, it part of Jim Crowe laws that are racially based.

    If I didnt have mine within the 30 day limit the state gives, I would be at the Sheriffs office until they printed them up!
    The worst part is they themselves use the NICS check that any gunshop would use.

    In CA, I had to wait 10 days for the first new gun and 30 days for an additional new gun. Used guns can be every 10 days but I had to wait 70 days for 3 Glocks I bought at a gun show several years back. Now in WA with my carry permit I can buy and pick up same day and as many as I want/can afford. Each state has its own bs/hoops. I am for the background checks but not the long waits unless there some issue.

    Purchase Permit? We don't need no stinkin' permit!

    Oh wait, I do need one. That's why I buy when my wife is out of town!

    Once it's in the safe, she doesn't know how many I bought! (Except she did ask when I bought another Fort Knox!)

    I love rants. It makes me feel better too.

    The infringements we That People put up with AMAZES me. But then, in a socity that has largely become dependent on the government for everything the government can demand anything it dame well pleases.

    And what exactly are these permits supposed to do stop criminals form obtaining guns? :rofl:

    My money is on, it’s all about the money and control of honorable men. :steamed:

    We don’t need permits here. I have a CCW, a City Commission, a unique name and a one of a kind SS # yet I have a hold put on my purchase every time I purchase a firearm. Seems I must have opened my mouth once too often and made some government list. I don’t know for sure because every government DRONE I’ve spoken with says they don’t know and even if they did they can’t give me any information and can’t tell me who can or where to go to find out. I’m told I can fill out a FBI form, send it in with a picture and fingerprints and get a #, which in turn can be given to the INSTANT Background Check DRONE which MAY allow me to walk out with my purchase. Since I have what I want and very rarely make any new purchases now-a-days F-um.

    Ps. I had so many that I began giving them to homeless people and dang if I didn’t just give away the last one. :rofl:
