I received my Tennessee handgun carry permit in the mail today. I first got it out of the mail box and did not feel the permit it it, so I decided that I should wait until I got to my apartment to open it. If I was rejected for some reason, I did not want the world to see me cry.
When I got it inside, I saved it for the last of my mail, in part to build anticipation, because it was the most important piece of mail. When I started opening it I felt a rectangular piece of material that did not bend as easy as the rest of the letter, and that was when I knew I had not been rejected like the ugly guy at the prom. As of this week it had been more than a month since I had sent in my application. I was getting a little worried that I would be rejected for some rason (unpain speeding ticket).
I put it in my wallet behind my driver's license. I still do not have a gun, if everything in my life had gone as I had planned I would probably be buying one next week. Since I wrecked my car and had to buy a new one, it has thrown several of my short term money plans into the air.
Oh well. Soon I will have the gun to match the permit.
