Okay, here is the latest....
Let me give you guys the story, the way it happened....Hopefully shorter...
I called the PCSO as asked to do in the message.
I spoke with the young lady whom has been given the task of "cleaning up" the mess that is CCW.
According to her, the print machine is fixed and they needed me to start the print process over again, somebody retired, another is retireing and she has been tasked with the CCW operation.
I reminded her of the verbal agreement with the Sheriff on this finger print deal. She said she knew about it, and was trying to do her best to complete the process.
She said that she had a couple of phone calls to make to Carson City, and she would call me back.
She called back about an hour or so later, and said that she may be able to issue the permit without doing the prints again.....So, she took down some more information, (stuff that I thought was on the application) and said she would call me back.
She called back a couple hours later to tell me that the hard cards were sent to Carson, and based on my background check, PCSO is issuing a temporary permit, and when the print clearence comes back from Carson, it will become permenant.
So, on my way back from a meeting in Reno tomorrow, I will stop in Lovelock to pick up the permit....
I still feel that the print "business" is an excuse for something else wrong within the system, but being calm, and curtious (sp) with all involved (Including Sheriff Skinner) helped me attain a verbal agreement with the Sheriff and move on to the issuance of the permit...
Now if I can only figure out how they say I qualified with a Ruger 9mm (I only qualified with a CZ 100, 357 revolver and Glock 23), the world will be right tomorrow afternoon!
I agree. I don't like the way the Sheriff's Office is handling the situation. Instead of going through all of that with the explanation of the machine and people retiring, they could have made some agreements with other counties to use their Live Scan fingerprint machines. If you travel out of town, it would be no problem to stop into another county (with a letter from your Sheriff's Office) and have the prints done there. It's not like your applying there, just having your Live Scan done at the request of your county sheriff. You shouldn't have to go through all of this.
