I read all this stuff in the forums about SD sheriff licensing, but I just don't get it. I don't have any special connections. don't carry large sums of cash, but I am in an established business with what I consider (very) good cause. anyway, every time I have gone to the SD licensing division over the past 10+ years, I have never experienced anything but polite, courteous even dare I say friendly and helpful people. I was just there this week renewing my permit.
Not saying I don't agree that shall issue should be the policy and I know licensing staff only follows policy, they don't set it. just what people say about sheriff licensing staff is so 180 degrees opposite to what I have always experienced that I find it difficult to understand.
anyway I get it...please no rants. just saying...
