Have to see where this goes.

I guess I've been spending too much time at work. When did we get a left wing 1st Selectman in our town, Vin? We have about five Democrats who live here! 8O


Well, unfortunately, the last Repub did not do such a good job (according to some) and got voted out in the last election cycle. Unfortunately, there are more and more dumba$$acrats moving in and it reared it's ugly head in this guy getting in.

This new guy is looking like an anti. Glad I got my permit before he got in.

Man, no kidding. It was a piece of cake when we got our permits here!

Well aside from the first selectman issue Southbury finally got the message about the 3 letters of recommendation.

I had to have them in '08 when I went through the process. I just found out today that they are no longer requiring them. A person I know did not have to submit letters last week. Thanks to Rich B and CT carry for flogging these errant towns into following the law.

UPDATE:

Just got a call that my permit is ready, but the Chief still needs to sign it first. 8) 12 weeks if I counted right 8O

She asked about my 'missing' 3 letters, I told her we discussed the issue when I handed in the application and that I didn't have any. She said OK and will call me once it's signed by the Chief, however long that takes.

She sounded swamped, and from what she quickly said it sounded like there have been a ton going through the system in Rocky Hill.

Going to call and cancel the appeal process once I have my permit in hand.

Please make sure you do. But don't believe anything the PD says or take anything for granted.

Have the permanent permit in hand before you contact the BFPE.

Picked it up yesterday 8)

Going to call and cancel the appeal later today. Rocky Hill took 12+ weeks.

Now researching on what to pick up. The Shield is still looking damn good
