The CCW class was offered and completed on Saturday at no charge to us. In the classroom at 8:00 AM and off the range at 4:00 with a working lunch. Sergeant Rich Eichenger was our instructor and he was professional, effective, and fun. Sheriff Sheldon made an appearance and he's a very nice, laid back, salt-of-the-earth guy. He was very positive and pro-CCW so I am questioning my earlier source that indicated he was not. Nothing here suggests that. He allowed his staff to rearrange Sgt. Eichenger's schedule so that Saturday was a work shift for him so he at least didn't get dragged in on his day off and everyone involved - both Sergeant Alfreys (a married couple which cracked me up) - were great and supportive as well.
Sgt. Eichenger had our certificates ready and our licenses (we had to surrender them within 10 days of the letter) on hand for us as soon as our range time was completed. We weren't officially reinstated (and he made that super clear) until they got into LEADS on Monday to reinstate them, but at least that saved us a trip or two back to the Sheriff's office to pick them up. I got a call at about 9:30 Monday informing me my license had been un-suspended in LEADS and I was good to start carrying immediately.
