I had to wait nearly 6 months for my GFL to come back. Had I waited all that time and been denied... I would be pretty pissed off too.

After reading all of it, it seems he's made out to be a swastika drawing ball of anger at work. But then the other gentleman said he hasn't seen him get angry in 10 years.

He looks like the kind of guy that would get pissed easily. Still, if he was a firearms safety instructor and had previously had a pistol permit... why not just sign.

I'm sure the chief has signed more than one over to someone that has used their pistol in some violent or criminal manner.

Well, he is a ball of anger that has no criminal record - not even a traffic ticket?

Maybe . . . but maybe not.

Maybe the chief was thinking... "You know what, I can't sign off on EVERY gun permit they send my way... then it looks like I'm not paying attention. I think I will deny this next one based on rumors and hear-say from his co-workers!"

I find it hard to believe he's never had a traffic ticket though... I've had my license 5 years now and have racked up 8 speeding tickets.

The chief should just sign the damned thing and let him on his way. This is far too much trouble for him to be willing to go through.

I bet if the guy moved and reapplied in a different county... he'd get it. Polk County will give a permit to anyone that doesn't 'beep' through the metal detectors in the courthouse hahahaha.

I like going fast... the Marine motto is: Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.

That may apply to combat - but I-285 is fair game for a leadfoot like myself :)

It's been 1 year yesterday since my last ticket though. (that sounded like an AA speech) LoL

I've been driving (legally, but swiftly) since 1958 and have never received a ticket for a moving violation.

I've been pulled over a couple of times and at least two of those should have resulted in a ticket, at least!

However, being a silver-tongued devil, I never got more than a verbal warning.

And that included the KSP trooper who started off by saying he was willing to testify under oath my car would do an honest 142 mph....! \:D/

You guys must be doing something wrong..........:wink:

I blew thru a Sandy Springs radar trap on GA 400 last week doing about 85 in a 55 and the cop never even looked up... :D

Must be my honest face........

When I was younger I beat that. When I was 18, I received a summons to a TN Dept of Public Safety hearing about why I should be allowed to keep my license. I had accumulated 18 points on driving my record in less than a year. My parents gave the summons to a friend of the family who is an atty. He arranged for me to take a drivers safety class, and have a 1 year probation period on my license in exchange for having the points cut in half.

It wasn't funny then, but is now. My parents had my sister and I on the same ins policy. We got cancelled from one ins company because she kept running into things, then cancelled by another due my lead foot. I stopped getting tickets and she started runnng into things again.
