They used to call you into the barracks, sit you in an interrogation room. It was quite the experience, make you feel as if you've done something wrong by even ATTEMPTING to get a permit.
So your saying the interview is over the phone at this time and not in person ?

Could it be the badge number of the Trooper that processed the application?

Yes (have you been reading here??)

Used to be in person, at your local barracks, now they just call the number(s) you provided and speak to you over the phone.

Sweet. That's much better. What a waist of time it would be to have to take off of work and go to wherever to get asked simple questions that can be asked over the phone.

HOWEVER!!!

It may be a bad sign. MSP like to see who they are considering. The fact that they are not making us show up in person may be because they expect that none of our application will be approved. The phone interviews instead of a meeting with us could be more about they do not want to waist their time with us.

I'm just saying. I think it is safe to assume that they are thinking that even if the way that they have been doing business for years is changed, it will not be changed anytime soon thinking the AG can tie it up in court for years.

We think and are hoping their stay is turned down. They I'm sure are thinking and hoping they stay will be approved. After all they are very accustom to getting their way with everything. And when I say "they", I mean the few with power that like things the way that things are.

Amyway I turned mine in to the post office Directley across the street from MSP headquarters on 3/21. I was going to hand deliver it but then I thought it would be better the get a post mark. I sent it certified.

The 21208 post office is so close to the MSP HQ that if you had a good arm you could through the app and hit MSP HQ building from the post office parking lot. And for some reason this morning after going on-line to check the progress on www.usps.com, 40 hours later it is still showing that it has not been delivered to the MSP.

????????????????????

The MSP number must have been written first, because the bank then processes your check by entering the amount of the check in bottom right.

BTW - Great service at www.marylandfingerprinting.com -- much faster/easier than going to the state for the prints and they provide the photos and notary in one place.
I too went there and yes they provided good service. The only thing that I did not like was I had my application all typed up very nice and neat looking that I had to trash because of the way that they do their notarizing. Instead of using the tool that most notary's use that I have seen 100's of times, they just print out a blank app that has been notarized and you have to fill it out all over again.

I live in northern Maryland near PA so for me to go back home to type it all out again would have been a waist of time. So I sat in the parking lot and just filled it in by hand. A little thing but I was pissed.

Del. Smiegel said that is you give him your information about sending in your app he will try to track them to see they get done right. Basically if you don't hear anything he has name to say what about John Doe and Jane Doe? Where are there permits? Hey it never hurts to have a delegate on your side.

It makes good sense. people in general are lazy. The easier you make it for whatever Trooper working on your file it can only benefit you.

How in the world is that even legal to notorize a blank paper? And then they even let you leave the building to fill it out.

The way I see it, the FBI background check would show that I was not dishonorably discharged and that I truthfully answered the question and provided proof.

Hell, I couldn't even have the job I have if I was dishonorable discharged - the security agent wouldn't be too happy
What kills me is making you go through the fingerprinting process. I work for the feds/Army for 27 years. My wife and I also adopted a child. Over my lifetime I have been fingerprinted about 35 times for one reason or another. Why make you go through it again and pay whatever for it. Just my name a SSA# is all that is needed for the FBI or any police department to see if I have anything on record. It's all about making you just jump through hoops like a monkey for nothing.

If you have never been finger printed that is different. Can anyone explain?

Remember they are looking for reasons to stop you from getting your CCW, not ways to make things easy on you.

It may be redundant, but do you want to take the chance that a Trooper will put it all together or do you think your chances would be improved if you make it easy on them and explaining on page 10?

Maybe they are just putting numbers on our checks to drive us crazy and they don't mean a thing.

In certain occupations you will be fingerprinted annually.

I believe it is to keep them up to date, I would like to believe it is because they do not file them, and only run them and if nothing comes back they discard them. I do not believe this to be the case though...
