What I had to do as 551 Holder
Just got my 551 "Green Card" so have started the GFL process.
First I have been reading up a great deal on the CCW and the laws, like any responsible adult would.
What a lot of conflicting documentation indeed or those of us that are not citizens.
Make sure you tick no to everything on the sheet given, but take note of the following:-
You MUST hold a current and valid hunting hunting license issued by the state you are residing in, and state where you are a citizen of, and that you tick the box marked have hunting license.
Without the hunting license being shown the paperwork stops there till you have it.
Be aware that you will have to provide your 551 Green card and other documentation such as drivers license, or vehicle registration showing that you reside in an address of the county you seek to get the ccw issued from. Additionally you will have to provide docuementation that shows you have been residing in the county for a minimum of 90 plus days.
You will then have your prints taken at some place, normally the local police station or sheriff's department.
These will go off to the GBI for a national records check on your police record in the USA. Note, they also go off to the FBI and Homeland Security (read as immigration) and they will also report on any external (out of country records they have on you.)
Oddly, I remember seeing a file with my looooong past records (no felony's folks) from my country, seems freedom of information limitations does not hold for Homeland security and reciprocating Countries. Well if I was a bad boy they would not have let me in I suppose. So if you got a felony form your original country, be prepared to have it show unless they don't release records.
Now for the good stuff, the County you reside in may or may not have a tolerant probate court Judge, or you may have one that seeks to make it difficult as heck to those who hold a 551. On this point, documentation rules.
Take as MUCH as you can carry, letters from the Homeland security office, birth certificates, passports, obviously your 551, and documents showing you pay for cable or phone or rent at the address in the county you are saying you reside in.
Hope that helps.
I will log what I have gone through thus far in another section, and update it asd I find out and do the technocratic tango for a CCW.
