This is just one example of my many frustrating moments in life being a Murphy...I work at a local gunshop in Round Lake, and im currently waiting for my pistol permit in the mail as we speak. Every day at work I talk to and inform people about the pistol permits, sooo....many of the people that were in my safety class had been comming in with their newly aquired permits and I was still left waiting. Knowing any of these days I should be seeing that letter in the mail box with my name on it. So today I leave work and get home to seeing only my moms name on a envelope sent from the sheriffs...mind you we turned in our permits at the exact same time and all of our references had turned in their paperwork at the same time aswell...so I get pissed...naturally, I called the Sheriffs later on to see if mine had actually been seen yet and she said she just had mine in her hand 5 minutes ago and that I would be getting it on tuesday or wednesday. What a mix of emotions that happened in 10 mins...

Too anxious to finially get to carry! only took 108 days...not too shabby for Saratoga County

Murphy's Law- Anything that can go wrong will. It would be more appropriate in this case: "The lady told me she had it in her hand 5 minutes ago. Right before she dropped it into the paper shredder." xD

When I called my County Sheriff's office for an update they told me the same thing - that it was in their possession and would be going in the mail at 5:00. I told the lady to hold onto it and that I'd be there in an hour. Picked it up before the mailman could get his hands on it!

Skip the 19 and go right to the 23. I am biased though. I hate my 19 we don't get along. The 23 tough I shoot really well. Same frame I don't understand it.

Congrats!! I had a similar experience...the clerk told me I could call anytime and check on the status. I waited 3 months and called. She said I sent it last week. I hang up the phone and go get the mail that I hadnt gotten the day before and there it is in the mailbox! Hahaha!
