I went on Thursday the 15 around 3:15, found a parking spot right in front of HPD.(lucky me!) Walk in to the firearms unit, line was to the door. Waited for 20 minutes, and then an announcement was made. No parking on the street after 3:30. I walked out to the car and there is an officer writing a ticket. (lucky me)
After opened the door and placing the rifle inside, I waited for what was coming. The officer said not to worry about it, he hadn't called the tow wagon yet.
I must have said said thank you about three times, moved the car.
Came back at 3:50 and the door was locked. Luckily the guy with the keys left me back in once he knew what happened. All said and done, I walked out a little past 4:30, last registration of the day.
I took off from work early, paid for parking (twice), stood in line for over an hour, and got all the looks for packing a rifle case to and from the furthest underground paring area. The wife's Christmas present is now registered,whew!
Time to buy Christmas present and make sure things go smoother.
