Ok, the application went into the mail today so the countdown begins.

I used my DD-214 and I did the electronic fingerprints (included the copy they gave me and the payment receipt for $37). :dancingbanana:dancingbanana:dancingbanana

The easy part in over,Now comesthe hard part the waiting you may feel like it is an eternity but don't worry we will be here when you get frustrated and impatient and wondering if it got processed or stalking the mailman just remember to start counting when your check gets cashed thats a good sign the ball is rolling.

All we can do is wait. I applied 12/13 and the check hasn't cleared. I will be happy once it finally does

Good luck to you guys. While you wait, make sure you carry around home so when the time comes, you will be used to wearing it around.

Agreed. I didn't- only got the CCW for Christmas, and looking for a suitable holster now :rolleyes:, so I'm easing into regular carry.

As for the wait, I doubt that it will be quite as bad as April. 77 days for me- mailbox to mailbox.

In April 08 there were 25,075 Applications sent out
In Dec the figure is not known, but in Nov/08 there were 42,895.

I say sit back and enjoy the ride :D

I've been carrying around the house for several days now and no one has noticed. The way I see it I have 3 months to get used to it and figure out which holster works best for me.

This wait is more difficult than ever because you are now active on a site that talks about carrying.

I agree about practice carrying at home. Wear different clothes to get a feel for what you are comfortable with.

Bless your heart. Been there done that and made everyone miserable in the process.

Hi Magda, When did you send in your application? If I had to guess, I would say your about 60 days away from receiving your license.

My total wait was 11 weeks, and they cashed my check after 4. Figure about another 50 days, plus however much the wait has increased in the past couple of months. Your estimate sounds pretty good.
