According to the Dekalb probate, my GFL was mailed 08/25/2006. It is now 09/06/2006. I called them today, 7 business days later (excluding the holiday), asking about it and they replied that "sometimes the mail takes a while from the court". I find this odd that, you would think the court would mail things promptly, I am 2 miles away from it and how ironic this applies to a pistol license. I'm "active" in the system, just no permit yet. I'm giving it until Monday, then I'm going down there in person (AGAIN) and I'm going to tell them I lost it. I know I have to pay an 8$ charge, but will I get my new license that day? I'd hate for them to 'mail' it again. It's about 2.5 months since my application and I've cordially visited them, in person, 4 times since then. No finger pointing or bugging them... just letting them know my face and that I'm not just going to stand by and wait for 6 months. Anyone else have a long delay from the date the probate signs it and the date you receive it? Do you think my plan to just tell them I lost it will get me a new one that day? Thanks. And I've been browsing here for 3 months.. first post lol... love the board.
