In just 180 days, I transformed my status from a prohibited possessor to a responsible gun owner. It all began on 09/28/2023, when I joined USCCA, embarking on a journey toward responsible firearm ownership. Determined, I navigated the bureaucratic landscape, obtaining my Arizona Department of Public Safety level one fingerprint IVP clearance card on 11/02/23.
Armed with patience, I diligently pursued the necessary steps, culminating in the issuance of my concealed weapons permit on 11/03/23. This rapid progression showcased my commitment to safety and adherence to the legal process. The $180 investment in both time and money proved worthwhile, as I emerged with a newfound sense of responsibility and the legal right to carry concealed in the state of Arizona.
