    Non-Resident Waiting Time

    Just an update for anyone who may be waiting:

    I mailed my application on Sept. 29
    Check cleared around the middle of October, I believe.
    Received the permit in the mail on Dec. 24

    A bit over the 60 days, but...not horrible.

    Could you tell us which state(s) you are talking about? Thanks.

    So, like Florida, you can apply for a Maine permit through the mail without ever setting foot in the state? Is that correct? What does Maine accept for training/competency requirements?
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

    I do not know about FL., but YES, Maine you can apply throught the mail. I beleive on page 7(F) of the application it says....By Affixing Your Signature Below As The Applicant You: "Certify that you understand that you must demonstrate to this issuing authority a knowledge of handgun safety as required by Title 25 M.R.S.A./2003 (1) (E) (5), unless you demonstrate that you are exempted under the same statute".

    I did not know that. I thought that Florida and Utah were the only states whose permits a nonresident could get without stepping foot into the state.

    You can download the appl. OR call for one which is what I did. Got appl. within a week and have been hanging onto it all summer. I was out of work due to Back injury, so it was not on my priority list. Finally just sent it in with my $60.!

    Well, I mailed my application out last Saturday and it came back this past Friday! Only problem, I forgot to get a signature from a "witness" . Yes, ME. sent it back but did not keep my check and basically stick it to me. I had a witness sign it and I also sent ME. back the .76 cents postage (in stamps) for them sending it to me. So I guess the $2.28 extra on postage was better than them keeping my $60.00?! Thnk you ME.

    Now that's customer service for you. Let's hope that they're just as good in getting your permit to you in a timely manner.
