That is all correct. A few guys I know said the maximum wait for a permit is 12 weeks, but I could be wrong. It took them every bit of that, though, to get theirs. However, there are specific locations you have to go (not necessarily "locations throughout"). For example, North Mississipians must to to Batesville. There is no classroom requirement, although it's highly reccommended. Plus, MS has a Castle Doctrine...a major plus.
