Went down to the local PD station today to apply for my Concealed Pistol License. Wednesdays, 12 - 4 is the only time fingerprints are done. Filled out the app, paid my $52.50 and had a seat to wait for fingerprinting. Just about the time I'm grumbling to myself that this is taking more time than it should (I have a very low "wait" threshold) a very large LEO came out and escorted me to the back. He was very good about explaining everything he was doing as he did it. After the prints were done (they don't use ink anymore) He gave me a very comprehensive talk about the importance of recording the serial numbers of my gun(s) in case they were ever stolen and everything else I own of any value. We discussed the non-requirement to declare your CPL in a traffic stop and he expounded on how it could go a couple different ways depending on the officers frame of mind and the totality of the situation. So after the chat he tells me that he was able to run my background check while I was sitting in the lobby waiting to be finger-printed. I walked out the door with my CPL! All in all, a very positive experience. My confidence in our local PD is definately reinforced.
