It has begun.

I made the first step on the road to becoming “The Pistol Packing GEBIV” today. I talked to a certified NY State pistol permit course instructor (NRA certified too). We’ll set a time for the classes when he gets back from a business trip in a few weeks.

In the meantime, my job is to get the reams of paperwork that the state requires to get a permit. I won’t fill any of it out yet. They can be very picky, so my instructor said to wait until he can go over it with me. I guess if you forget to cross an “i” or dot a “t”, your paperwork is automatically rejected. And it’s a long enough process to begin with.

Of course, this means I have to deal with the downsized Erie County Courthouse. Even so, I’m still glad that the extra sales tax was voted down! (We’ll see how I feel when golf season rolls around, and having the county courses closed affects me…)

The only problem I can see so far is that I need three non-related references from the township I live in. I live right on the border, in the corner actually, of my town. Most of the people I know live in the other three towns nearby. I’ll find someone who’ll vouch for me eventually… I hope.

I’ll keep everyone updated on how things are going, here at There’s One, Only!.
