My CCW expired in 2006 and before I realized it had expired, more than 6 months had passed. Since I was no longer carrying I didn't worry about it too much. Now my kids are older and they want to learn to shoot. After retaking the pistol class and sending off for a copy of my DD214, I submitted my application around the first of June.

Has anyone had any experience reapplying after an expiration and being denied?

FYI, it cost me about $35 for the permit back in 1986. This time around, it'll cost around $225. Why did I let it expire?
