Permit



I'm still replacing paperwork lost in the shipwreck. Today it was my concealed carry permit. A New Hampshire permit cost $10 and is good for 4 years. The replacement cost is also $10 so many people just fill out forms for a new permit. There's a year and a half left on my old permit so I just went with a replacement rather than fill out the paperwork and wait a week or two for approval. A lot can happen in a couple weeks.

My gun safe key is still missing, but I have a few handguns kept somewhere else so I'm not in a terrible hurry. If I was I'd drill the lock out.

Phil from the Vulgar Curmudgeon Blog suggested using the phone camera on my cell to try and take a photo of the serial numbers on the back of the safe. I was able to blindly reach my hand between the building studs and take a bunch of random pictures, about 20 of them. Three of them had partial shots of the information tag and it took all three of them to reconstruct the serial number.

The safe company is very cautious about handing out replacement keys. They have a form that must be filled out an notarized, plus they want a bunch of paperwork. Rounding up all that stuff will give me something to do while the search for the key goes on.

Security is on my mind today since I woke up to a terror bombing in Belgium. My prayers are with the Belgium people.

  1. I haven't had the misfortune of losing my wallet, so I can only imagine the effort it takes to replicate / replace your information. When you get the replacement safe key, maybe keeping an extra taped in a discrete location far away from the safe might be an idea. Dad had a black laminated stereo cabinet and used electrical tape to cover a key. It was very hard to spot, even in plain site.

    1. Replacing stuff is a pain, but it's happening one thing at a time.

  2. It may be a hassle to replace all that stuff, but then you will have all brand new stuff and paper work.

    You should know by now that I'm not condemning, but feel compelled to comment. Most people go their entire lives without a weapon of any kind, much less a gun, and certainly not a concealed carry permit. Yet you feel you can't go two weeks without a concealed weapon. Wow.

    Not sure what that says, but is says something. About our collective state of affairs if nothing else.

    1. Rather have it and not need it than the other way around. Besides, it's only ten bucks and I don't have to fill out paperwork, which I've had my fill of lately.

    2. SB,

      Understand in general.

      No intention of litigating the 2nd Amendment here, but I sincerely want to know this answer: Even out in white-bread ruraltopia where you live, has the general population really worked themselves up to the point where they think there's a jihadist hiding behind every tree? I've been away for awhile. Just trying to get the temperature of the water.
