I thought I'd do a check up on my GFL application, even though I applied on the 7th of this month. Course I got the same song and dance on how it takes 3-6 months before I would see anything. I guess along with others...that I have a problem with it taking that long. I mean...what's it take to look someones background up, approve stamp put on the application and sent back. Shoot, I can do a background check on the net in minutes for a fee. I just received an updated list from our HQ on customers that were placed on COD. A good majority of them were here in my area. I cover the whole Southeast, and when I do machine modificatons or repairs I could be carrying large amounts of money, or money orders. Some of these companies are not exactly in the best parts of towns Sure would be nice to have a sidearm with me at least while I am in the car, or stopping for gas. I told her I would check since there have been reports of people getting them anywhere from 10 days to 30 days. She said she checked for me, came back and said nothing yet.
