***FINAL Progress Update***

01/08/2017 Mailed application
01/17/2017 Check cashed my Maine
02/09/2017 "Date Issued" on license card
02/13/2017 Received[grin]






I just sent in my application for ME out of state. I live in MA about 25 minutes from that southern coastal finger of Maine. I also hike and plan to start hiking in ME next spring.
Without the permit the restrictions are too numerous and complicated for me to remember:
* Duty to notify officer
* No carrying in Acadia
* No carrying in state parks
* No carrying during deer archery season
* No carrying in Allagash Wilderness Waterway

Having a ME out of state permit makes all the above restrictions go away.[thinking]


But, the out of state permit process is nuts. The package you mail in will contain:
* $60 check
* Proof of handgun safety course within last 5 years
* Passport grade photo
* Copy of birth certificate or passport
* 6 page form:
- 3 pages of "Have you ever.....Yes/No"
- list of residences in last 5 years
- list of all LTCs you have
- list of any LTC denials
- list of any LTC revocations
* A 2 page release of psych medical records
* A 1 page release of gun license and criminal records

All rolled-up, it was at least 2hrs of work before I was licking the envelope.

Interestingly they do not ask for a copy of your home state LTC, driver's license, list of references or reason you want the permit.

I'll post my progress: date check is cashed. Date I receive the license.

My Maine Non Resident (Res) expires this year and I went to the website to download the forms to renew and found something interesting on their website...

They list all Non Res License Permits on their website... They don't give any info except the Start/Finish of permit and the Town/City & State they are from and total count for each Town/City...

They list 96 pages of permits, WOW!!! That's a lot of Non Res Permits... That doesn't count Resident Permits...

I found one other person in my town that has a Non Res Permit... Small World seeing that we only have a little over 1600 people in town...

Here's the link if your interested:

This has been true for many years. I've reviewed that info myself some years ago.
