At least for me. Some of you know I recently moved to Arnold from St. Charles, I know it seems a bit backwards (especially since Jefferson county tends democat and St. Charles tends republican) but I was pleasantly surprised today. I dropped by the Sheriffs office to get a pistol purchase permission slip and whadja know, I got it there on the spot! For those in more reasonable parts of the state St. Charles (and St. Louis) residents have to apply for their purchase permit snd then wait ten days for approval, no exceptions, not even if you have a sh**box full of guns already. Well JeffCo is a hell of a lot better. Just go in, fill out the form, cough a a ten spot and away you go permit in hand.
Ok, so I still am not fond of the whole damn process of having to get permission at least here it is quick and easy.

BTW, for those interested the object of this permit is a SS Ruger Security Six in .357 magnum, I really like my redhawk but that darn gun is huge and heavy!
Now the question is which should I use for my CCW, the Browning Highpower or the Security Six????

I to live in arnold, and was suprised how easy it was to get a permit. I previously lived in st. francois county and I had to find like 3 people to vouch for my character it was funny to me.

It's only 5 days in StL County, but it still stinks big time. The only consolation is that I work in Downtown Clayton, so I can apply for a permit during lunch one day and pick it up during lunch the following week. It's really the only good reason to work in downtown Clayton, other than the fact that that's where the money is, of course.

BTW: What's the barrel length on the Ruger Security Six?

Now the question is which should I use for my CCW, the Browning Highpower or the Security Six????



Used to be like that in Phelps County. Then they changed it to a mandatory wait (3 business days, I think) and said it was "because of the new computer system not being able to handle it", which was a horrible excuse since the OLD system could do it without any problems. I think the real raeason was election politics - one of those "see, I did something about the 'crime' problem here" things.

When did this happen? I went against my own principles and got one earlier this year and got the permit the same day (Saturday). Did this recently change?

It's 1 week in Jackson county.
And the hours make it inconvinient. 8-5 M-F.
Kinda hard to make it to the sherriffs office when you work 8-5, which most people do.

That's why they do it that way.

I originally moved to Jefferson County MO from a free state. I was pretty unimpressed about having to get a permit for the "privilege" of buying a handgun. At least it wasn't too big of a hassle. I could just go into the police substation next to the grocery store and walk out 15 minutes later with their silly permit thingee.

Now I live in St. Louis Co. But you already know what that's like.

I may be moving back to MO from TX in the next several months. I simply can't believe this permit system is still in place. Have any efforts been made to repeal it?
