Know a bit about Robt. E. Lee, 2nd in his West Point class, "Old Marble," Mexican War, even the cavalry, but did not recall his rank when he resigned his commission.

Lots of good info here.

I wasn't gonna say anything, but since you deliberately provided me a broken link, I'm gonna ask:

Do you want mustard to go with that crow? :):p
Gotta remember to check my links - here 'tis:

Just a little garlic and well done without feathers, if you please. :?

Hey there folks, I'm just here to introduce myself.  Henceforth I shall be known as Crossfire Guy.

I guess I have a unique story, one that begs to be told. Having worked in the firearms business for a long time, I had a prmit to carry for about 12 years.  I opened a store with a friend who turned out to be otherwise . I lost my portion of the store as well as my permit to carry as my partner in the business sent a letter to the AG's office to revoke that permit. I have never had a black mark on my record for anything at all.  Yet, my permit was indeed revoked. I spoke with the Chief of the division which issued my permit and came up empty. I couldn't see the letter nor could I determine what the contents were, other than I no longer needed a permit as I was out of business.

A few years later, I applied and was denied, the reason, I did not have a viable reason to carry, despite the fact that I was still an NRA Certified Instructor. To this day I have had difficulties in obtaining a permit.

This brings me to the pertinent question of "What can I do?

I have thought about contacting BATFE to see if they can help.

They know me and they knew him, they also know that I was cleared of any wrong doing period!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You, in advance.

You have the right to see any documentation that was used to revoke your permit. I doubt they had any, so that's why they didn't show you any. This screams that they didn't give you due process. I would contact them again and ask for the documentation or tell them that you will get a lawyer.
Being a firearms instructor should be reason enough to get a permit since you might teach classes outside of a range and you won't be able to legally carry a firearm otherwise.

Basic, sound advice given to get an attorney involved. Whether he did or not, that was 6 months ago and no report back.
