So, if Peruta is finalized (as a loss) in 3 years, we may have another - 7.5 years until we win Nichols... We're talking about New Years Day, 2027 before we win ANY kind of carry (assuming we'd even win Nichols)!

That calls for a Rip van Winkel-type of a nap. (Wake up looking like: )

Hopefully, the OP now understands why we're not all excited about Nichols. Best to move to a CA county that readily issues CCWs now, rather than wait (unarmed) years for Peruta or Nichols (which we're not guaranteed to win).
You're such a jerk for pointing out this timeline so clearly.
