    Well at least your not in Mecklenburg seems like every other county is not too bad. I just picked up mine today finally 63 days later and the only reason I found out it was there was because I called and check on the status and she was like o its here I said thanks I wonder how long it sat there . Most likely not long though they take forever here in Charlotte. Hope it doesn't take to long for ya. But you know what after a few days I forgot about it and all of a sudden it was 2 months later and here it is.

    Congrats on completing your class and qualification. Train, train, train, and then train some more! I recommend NRA Personal Protection Inside/Outside the home. Don't need to wait on your CCH for that. If you can only do one, take the outside the home. It's two days, versus one, and you shoot twice as much. Take both, if you can.

    I keep reading about armed citizens doing extraordinary things. Know the law, maintain situational awareness, and have a blessed day!

    I'm in Buncombe county, I applied in January, counted down 90 days +. Got tired of waiting and on April 12th I called about it. The lady said "oh yea, it's ready come on and pick it up". The renewel date on it is Feb 28th, that's how long it sat up there. If I hadn't called I'd still be waiting.

    Maybe instead of being a "shall issue" state, we should become a "shall issue and notify" state.

    Seriously, Wake County notified both my wife and myself. It takes very little time to pick up the phone and let someone know their permit is ready. Are they really that over worked? OTH, I don't have any figures, but I suspect the number of permit applications have gone way up. But then, so has revenue. You pays your money, you think the least they can do is call you. Our tax dollars not at work, I suppose.

    Wow, that's fast! I wish I could go for that, too, I live in the same county but I can't get a NC permit because I am not a citizen. So I have to make do with my UT non res permit.

    The NRA requires instructors for these courses ensure the student has ample shooting experience. There is also a pre-req order. The student is supposed to take NRA Basic Pistol followed by PPITH (or show exemplary shooting skills and safety) and then, if the instructor feels confident with the student's abilities, he may take PPOTH. When becoming an instructor this is emphasized heavily. An inexperienced shooter taking PPOTH is a very bad idea. The student must learn the fundamentals and proper shooting techniques first (stance, position, grip, trigger control, sight alignment, sight picture, follow-through). In PPOTH there is a significant amount of moving and shooting and even experienced shooters turn into chimps with oversized sneakers. There is a significant risk in allowing inexperienced shooters into an advanced class... to themselves, to the instructors and to the other students. That's why I require all assistant instructors wear kevlar vests. I once had a student with 29 years experience as an armed guard clip me with an ND during range exercises for PPITH. It happened so fast there was no way to grab the arm before the discharge occurred. No sir. Not allowing anyone to take PPOTH until they either have the pre-req credentials or pre-certify with me.

    And for all the instructors on here... please consider a vest for live-fire exercises. Make sure you go home to your family at the end of the day. Even the most experienced shooter can screw up. You only get one chance at this.
    GOD, GUNS and GUITARS
