after i get out of work today, the plan is to drop off my firearms application, application to purchase a handgun, and get finger printed.

You have to do all that where you live?
I just walked into the gun shop, the guy did a check on the phone for ten minutes, then I walked out with my gun.

for NJ, i need to fill out:
1. consent for mental health records search
2. general town application
3. application for firearms purchaser ID
4. application to purchase a handgun

looks like im not doing it today anyway.

i called them and they told me not to bother coming down because the guy that handles it is still on vacation. come next wednesday.
this is just slightly irritating.

I just moved from Asbury Park in April. Thank god, that would drive me batshit.

this really shouldnt be this much of a hassle.

i dont understand why the day i got the paperwork originally they didnt say come back on [insert date] when the person who normally handles this is here.

i dont understand why i cant just hand in the paperwork to get things processed and come in next week for fingerprinting.

i suppose asking for a complaint form while handing in my permit application might be a bad idea.

I keep a .45 in the nightstand, and a .38 in the car.

I've considered getting a concealed carry permit, but i'm not sure i'm ready for the responsibilty of walking around armed all the time.   God bless the ones who do though. :)

What responsibility is that?

I am scared of that too, but have considered it... I'm afraid of the safety turning off and then I shoot myself or something.

Be afraid of pointing it and killing someone...or getting killed for pointing it at someone.  The most important "safety" is your mind.

for sure!

UPDATE: Week 3

i called in to verify that i would be able to drop off my papers after work today, as i was originally instructed to do the last 2 times.

i was told that they no longer do wednesdays 6-9.
the NEW information is wednesdays ONLY between the hours of 9AM-11AM.
no weekends.
i have to take the time out of my work schedule.

when i inquired further (my 2nd phone call), the detective said, "well, that's the way it is now. we hire a guy to come in between 9-11 on wednesdays."

so within the last 6-7 days, this decision was made.

i get it. its better to discourage me and anyone else from attaining a firearm ID card by rescheduling the hours so the least amount of people can make it there, when the stereo-typical average person has a 9-5... AND placing that person in a catch-22 by giving them no choice but to take a few hours off work, possibly losing pay for the time out of the office (generally speaking).

It's better to just show up and see what times are posted at the station/courthouse itself.

Where I live they change it every few months based on whoever has the responsibility to do the work, and their shift availability.

We had a woman for years who worked from 1:00PM to 4:00PM on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Then she changed her shift to 1:00PM to 4:00PM Mon,Tue,Wed,Fr

Then she left and the new woman is five days a week, noon to 4.

The first woman told me flat out that they based the times around the availability of a police officer who is also a notary public, and has rights for the particular computer system. Most of the time when I've had trouble it was because something was wrong with the computer. The last gun I bought, her printer was jammed. I walked back behind her desk and fixed it for her, so that I wouldn't have to come back. Everybody was happy.

I live in a large city, by the way.

While it's fun to hate government on general principle, it's often more about the bureaucracy than malicious intent. (I don't want to imply that they're good guys, either. Please don't misunderstand me.)

yes, however, it does give me the feeling that i am getting the "run-around" since the stories/instructions keep changing.
i have more important things to do that deal with the disorganization and selective efficiency of the detective bureau on a weekly basis.

i suppose they would disagree.

No, I understand totally. It's bullshit in every way. It's a waste of time and energy.
