It sounds like the MSP doesn't have a dedicated mail room. I don't know how an organization that large does not have one. Maybe with all this mail USPS will ask them to implement one. You guys are right though, if all that happens is it gets left at the PO and no more record of tracking or signature, it's kinda a waste of time and money


IIRC Express Mail is supposed to provide a signature as part of the service. Priority mail is delivery confirmation to the recipient PO unless you pay extra

Maybe we'll get sig info tomorrow

Nah, it was on the truck for delivery at 10AM, which means it would have been left there under normal circumstances.

I'm not too concerned just yet. Probably over thinking the whole thing.

To force a signature and (mostly) instant acknowledgment.

If I had the time, I'd have gone to UPS or FedEx overnight, for more instant info.

Plus... honestly? An additional 12 smackers is a small price to pay (to me) for something this important.

That's a substantial part of why I "pulled the trigger" on applying. I gave my cash to MSI and SAF so I wouldn't feel guilty, but I gave some money to the state just so they couldn't piss down my back by saying that 95% of applicants get a carry permit.

That pretty much sums it up for me.
Chances of getting a permit went from absolute 0, to 1/100000 in less that 24hrs last week. I want to be part of the movement that will make it happen.

This (I think) means my package wont' actually be in their hands until the 16th. Assuming I had sent it First Class or just regular Priority (without the extra delivery confirmation), it would be delivered by now.

Something to think about.
I sent mine out last friday morning and the lady at the PO said it would probably be there the next day. I tracked it later that saturday and it said a notice was left. I tracked again later monday afternoon and it said it was delivered. Tuesday I got the green confirmation card back in the mail. Just wait a day and check it again.
