New to the waiting list!

#1

Post by Amhran Na Bhfiann » Mon Apr 09, 2018 12:20 pm

Hello, all!

So far my timeline is as follows....


3/17 Class
4/6 Online app and LTC submission (with criminal background)
4/9 Fingerprints submitted

Nothing has popped up as of yet online.


Pretty clean record, minus one big brain-fart!

In 2012, while travelling in Ohio during Christmas with my family, I had a routine traffic stop in the middle of the day. Officer asked if I had any weapons (wifes car) and mindlessly I said "yessir i have a knife and my wifes pistol in the console"

Felony in OHIO! One day after a Cleveland Police Officer was shot! (Not killed)

Anyhow, given my clean record and my career as both a full-time Firefighter/Paramedic and also an Airline Pilot, it was fully dismissed and I humbly accepted a disorderly conduct ($250 fine) and surrender of my wifes .38 revolver. My safety status with the FAA/TSA as well as my Texas Paramedic were not impacted and remain active today.

No problem.


It has been over 5 years, talking on the phone with DPS they claim that I meet all requirements. I have no other record, whatsoever and not so much as a speeding ticket in over 5 years.

I wonder what my timeline will look like?

Thanks! Nice to meet you all!

Understood, and thanks!


I also forgot to mention that I submitted all court docs and disposition, including proof of dismissal with my application.

Plastic in hand 5/21


carrying IWB with CrossBreed last two days at 7-8 oclock position (lefty) have NOT been carrying one in the chamber yet, until i can get used to everything and make sure i can get pants on and off etc without dropping anything etc.

so far its very uncomfortable and makes my kidneys ache. I will give a week or so and then I may seek an alternative :-(

Take the gun out of the holster before taking off pants, as for uncomfortable, I switched from IWB to OWB I had the same problem but right-handed. Pain is gone now.
