    Is there a reason or an interest in publicizing thatyou just submitted your CPL app?

    This is a sincere question; maybe I'm not aware of the reason or interest.

    my guess is that the excitement of finally turning in the application is so great that you just have to tell people!

    at least that's how it was for me

    I was excited when I turned mine in too.

    Edit to add: but even more excited when I got it!

    For me, having the CPL paper work going, but no card in hand made it all the more gratifying to go around OCing anyway.

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    I am renewing my CPL rigt now. It expires today. Iapplied for the renewal 2 weeks ago. I received a call Friday the 11th and was told My prints came back clean and i could pick up my permitt Thursday the 17th. I am very happy with that turn-a-round time in Otsego Co. I'm not too happy with the $105.00 cost, but whatch-ya-gunna-do?

    Looks like Kent County has a back up. They have a large number of "pendings".

    Did you have to get finger printed again? I was always under the impression that your fingerprints never change......:shock:

    And why another backgroud check? It would be obvious if you've broken the law, because your CPL would have been revoked for any felony or major domestic conviction.....

    I guess they need to come up with some reason to poach another $105 from you every 5 years

    Your fingerprints can change, for instance scars, disease, amputations, and intentional modification, etc....

    Yes, they did print me again. This is the first time i've applied for the permit in Otsego Co. They did it on a digital screen so maybe that's why it was so quick.
