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.
