I lived in Stark county when I got mine, back in 2007. I applied for it on a Thursday, got it a week and 4 days later on a Monday. I was lucky mine didn't take so long. I had heard that SCSO waits until the absolute limit to issue them.
I live in Wayne county now, Mr. Maurer and the new Sheriff Mr. Hutchinson are pretty good family friends and are definitely for CCW/NRA!
