The run around to get a Carry Permit..Yippy!

Recommended Posts

My story of the run around to get a Carry Permit!

I took my gun safety class back in June of this year in order to apply for a gun carry permit. Well finally mom is doing something for herself now that racing season for kido is done & I have a little extra cash in my pocket. MX racing costs so darn much!

So I went & waited at the driver’s license office for my number to be called. After waiting 37 minutes my number was called. I presented all my paperwork but there was a problem with the name of the class teacher so after several calls were made that got dealt with. (Really long story behind that deal) Then I paid my $115.00 cash. I then assumed I would be sent somewhere locally to go get my fingerprints done...but noooo you have to go home get on the computer, fill out information, select a location, & then pick an apt time. I want to take care of this now not go through all that. But I am old enough for my wants not to hurt me. So I am then asked to go sit back down & wait till my name is called for the picture part of my application. So I sit & wait another 22 minutes for the nice lady behind the camera to call my name. I sit down in the special chair & say CHEESE! :biggrin:

The lady was super nice & offered to let me see the picture & if I didn’t like it she would redo it. WOW, that was nice of her but luckily for the both of us it was a good one on the first try. So I get back in my car & drive back home to get on the computer to get my apt time & the place to have my fingerprints made for the application. I live right next to one of the larger cities in my area but lucky me & all the residence in my city we have to drive 2 cities further to have this done! Give me a break!!!!:confused:

So here in a bit I will load the family & drive about 25 miles one way to the location I have selected (which was my closest) & get this application completed.

Then when all that is done I just wait up to 90 days to get the permit but the kind lady at the DL office said the wait time has been around 3 weeks....Yay!

So that’s my story about the run around to get a Carry Permit in the state of TN.

I never really thought about carrying while riding but I could see having some extra protection in unknown areas.

I have never been into guns or worried about a carry permit until this year. But after being all over the Mid & Lower Eastern US this year & running into some characters I decided it was best to get one. :yes:

Supposedly there have been more landowners pulling rifles on atv riders in the eastern PA area. I think its because there are goon riders who dont care but also a big problem is that there is no real borders or property lines to differetiate private land from RAC land. Sometimes its hard to notice a single 8"x8" sign while trail riding at 50mph. Ive done it.

I cant get a carry permit in NY! Anyone know what type of pistol is good for a beginner? Sorry for the hijack!

I agree about the problem with no real borders laid clearly out for riders. I remember my son & I riding on our 400EX & I didnt see the sign no motorized vehicles beyond this point that was kind of out of the way. We ended up in someones cornfield & the owner came after us. Here I have my kid on the back. Scared the crap out of me. I had no idea where I was & I certainly would have never been on his property on purpose!

It really stinks about NY laws...no carry permit, but I guarantee every thug & criminal carries a weapon! Not a firearm....WEAPON!

I bought this handgun...its my first but wont be my last...LOL:wink:

Its a Phoenix Arms HP22A

Its not a knock down firearm but it will certainly hurt an intruder & buy me time to get away! It has 2 different safeties but the extra one near the hammer can be removed. Because of my son I chose this firearm for the extra safety, the ease of use, the size, & price.HP22AA13.JPG

Now my next handgun will be this:

TA247-40SSC-15.jpg

Ooops let me fix this typo.....Its a Tarus 380 automatic pistol. My father-in-law just got this little baby. Has no safety but it takes like 7 lbs of finger pressure to pull the trigger. Very nice, powerful, small enough to carry in your pocket, & has knock down power! :biggrin: Disclaimer: You are justified in using lethal force against another human being if, and only if, there is immediate and unavoidable danger of death or grave bodily harm to an innocent person.

If you have a permit to carry the you should carry all of the time. I even break my own rule but it is like a phone, the minute you forget it at home you need it.

I completely agree swampcat07! I will have to get use to carrying & then just like you said the minute we leave it behind something will happen...nice to know I share the same luck...LOL

I like people not knowing if I`m carrying :biggrin:

I agree with quadnut20 on this too! I DO NOT want people to know I am carrying! Even if I have the privilege to carry when you carry say on your hip in plain view at the grocery store it makes people very nervous & the next thing you know it the police are showing up at the store because they received multiple calls about a man or a women in the store with a gun. By the way true story.

I hate people sometimes! When I went to school in Nashville Tenn. one of the teachers there would carry and put his gun n holster on his desk. Being from NY i have never seen this before but felt quite safe as he was very cool and calm person.

That is unusual for sure! I could see why you felt safe.

Well got my permit in just 2 weeks & 4 days! Was shocked it came so fast. They said it could take up to 90 days. I am now a proud permit carrier :biggrin:

Also found that I need a smaller handgun...the one I have is to heavy for carrying around. So I am in the market for a new one :wink:

      Hey guys, I sure hope someone can help me out here...
      A few weeks ago, while we were out riding, Mini-Me's four wheeler started acting up. Anything above about ¼ throttle would make it bog real bad and if you didn’t back off the gas it would shut off. Seemed like it was starving for gas or air. No obvious fix on the trail so took it home figuring it was a fouled carb.
      Took the carb off; not serviceable. Put it back on and the problem was gone. All I did was unbolt it, pull it out, cuss about the shaved screw heads, and put it back. Ran fine for a few days then did it again. Took carb off and put back on again (hell, it worked last time) and while I was at it I bought a good plug and replaced that. Didn’t fix it this time.
      Ordered a new carb under waranty. Company took three weeks to send me the wrong part.
      I ordered a new one myself which showed up Friday. Saturday morning I had him ride it pre-replacement to verify issue was still there; it was. Anything over ¼ gas it would bog and die.
      Replaced carb (fyi – slightly larger – 20mm new vs. 19mm stock) and it was back up and running. Better then before, seemed a little quicker and sounded MUCH better.
      For a few hours… Then the bog and stall came back. Below is everything I tried last night –
      Took fuel line from tank straight to carb – bypassed filter/petcock – no change
      Took crankcase line (that is hooked to the air filter with a check valve in-line) off case – no change
      Took air filter completely off – no change
      Gassed it until it started acting up and then started shutting down the choke (to much air?) – no change
      Held the back end up (now it’s not “under load”) and revved it up – no change
      Adjusted the idle up close (doing it by ear) to where it wanted to cut out when using the throttle – continued to idle fine; no bog. Blipped the throttle and it bogged down.
      I’m going to go get a can of starter fluid to check for air leaks around intake, some carb cleaner to clean up the carb, and a new fuel filter to replace Chinese one. Don’t expect any of that to fix it, but ruling things out.
      Also; this may not be related but….
      The battery on this thing is a POS. When we pull it out in the morning it doesn’t have the juice to crank it, gotta “boost” it for ~5 min. before it will crank. Usually once boosted and we get it started it’s good the rest of the day. Well yesterday he shut it off and when he tried to start it again it wouldn’t bust off. I did a little investigating and discovered that if you hit the starter and give it some throttle it acts like the battery is dead (slow turnover, wont fire). But once you let off the gas, it spins over slow a time or two (clearing the pressure?) and then the revs start to pick up and it will start. Almost like it’s over pressure in the cylinder if you open the throttle…
      Because of the above I’m thinking maybe an exhaust valve issue??? To tight, not letting pressure out fast enough maybe? Maybe that’s causing the bog when you give it gas??? I’m going to get a set of feeler gauges and check/adjust the valve clearance.
      Again, don’t expect a magic fix but it’s something to look at. I know these things require periodic valve adjustment, but I can’t see it being out of whack at < 10 hours.
      I was going to pull the plug, hook it up and ground it while I hit the starter to verify that I’m getting fire, but it starts and idles fine, so no sense in that. I’ll still pull to inspect (correct color, no oil, etc.) just for fun.
      I don’t think it’s anything mechanical, symptoms/trouble shooting so far just don’t fit.
      Which leaves electrical; the CDI boxes on these things are know issues, but 99% of the time they are good/no good. So why does it start/idle if that’s bad? I suppose it could be bad and only displaying once the revs come up, but that’s a LOOOOONG shot. Only $5 so if tonight’s tinkering doesn’t fix/isolate the issue I’ll probably get one just to say it’s been replaced.
      Aside from the CDI there is a battery (for starting only), a magneto, a voltage regulator/rectifier, and a million electrical connections. I haven’t gone thru them all but I can’t believe it’s a bad connection or the magneto because of the repeatability of the problem. It doesn’t come and go on its own; it runs fine, then all of the sudden won’t come off idle without cutting out. Take the old carb off, put it back on; it’s fixed (for a while). Take the old carb off, put it back on, it’s not fixed. Take the old carb off, put a new one on; it’s fixed (for a while).
      Which leads me back to mechanical, but I’ve checked (almost) all of that.
      Small chance it’s the valve adjustment, but I’ll verify that tonight. If it jumped timing it would be jacked from idle so I don’t think that’s it, plus it showed up, went away, came back, etc... If timing was off it wouldn’t run at all, or would run like crap from idle on; correct?
      Oh, also – When I started looking at it last night (right after it started acting up) the air intake (short, curved aluminum “tube” going from the carb to the head) was hot. REALLY HOT. Maybe he over heated it, but before I put the new carb on he test rode it cold and it still did it.
      Short of a .40 thru the engine block, anything else you can think of? I’m running short on ideas after the above…

      Has anyone tried the GPS XII Run Flat tires. We just got a set for hunting season and these are the best thing I have ever seen. If your looking for a tire that you don't have to worry about flats this is the tire. We have purchased many different brands for our machines over the years and nothing like these ever. A little on the pricy side but I have to say well worth every penny.

      I bought this bike a few months ago running fine. Rode it once and things have been downhill from there. It started to cough while riding, then backfiring and stalling, eventually leading to not starting at all. The bike was sent to the shop for a carb service, rode it for 10 minutes, and now it is worse than ever. Bought a brand new carb for it, still will not start or run. The spark is intermittent. This video shows the best it has "run" in months: [ame]
      [/ame]. At my wits end here, and months behind on bush work which is what the quad was bought for. PLEASE HELP!
