Ugh, finally, it's all green and print is pending. I guess it's like the one person said they do it in batches..
.....

Yes, I am very thankful we came out of the past of 6 and 7 months but seeing everyone else opening their Christmas present first doesn't make the waiting any easier. I'll just remember to send in my next renewal all the earlier so it doesn"t lapse. Thanks for understanding.

In my opinion we shouldn't be charged a fee and put into a database to exercise our 2nd amendment right. But yes it's good that things are faster.

I don't have an exact timeline but mine came up as being mailed this morning, checked the mail at lunch (mail dude usually delivers from 11am to 1pm) and didn't get it today. Maybe it'll be there tomorrow. :cheers2:
