    CCW holders: How long did it take?

    From application to the call, how long did it take them to figure out you're not a criminal and give you your permit?

    I've been waiting a week now, and I can't imagine that my background check would take anything near this long.

    It's been so long ago, I'm not 100% sure. However, people have been getting theirs in 3-5 working days in the county from which I received mine. I believe mine was in that time frame but no more than a week or two. They currently only charge $55 and take the photo for you. We have a pro-constitution sheriff.

    It's funny. I don't think they are quite related but an FFL once told me every single transfer he does for someone with a clearance gets bumped to the "additional review" status.

    funny

    Franklin county 26 hours for me, and 28 hours for my buddy who applied the day before me. Though they are scheduling appointments about 2-3 weeks out.

    45 days

    Mine always gets bumped because I was a demolition specialist when I was in the Army.

    At least that's what they told me.

    Thumbs up Franklin County Ohio

    I just called for an appt here in Franklin County this morning and they gave me an appt 4 weeks out. I called back 10 minutes later and asked if I could come in and just wait in case someone didn't show and they told me to come on in. There was no one in line when I got there and in under 10 minutes I was out of there. They were extremely fast and nice about it. I was told I would receive a call in "1 to 45 days" to pick up my permit.

    I'll check back in and let you know how long it took.

    As you can see from my above posting I applied yesterday around noon,
    I got my call at about 9am this morning. Grand total wait time was 21 hours.
    I have nothing bad to say about the process in Franklin County except the parking
    downtown was a bitch.
    Take care.

    Hamilton County

    Went in at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. It was in my mailbox at 10:00 a.m. Thursday. I'm sure it would have been ready for pick-up Wednesday if I got it in the mail Thursday. I called them and thanked them for good turn around.

    Right, ours in Erie County don't get sent in the mail, we have to pick 'em up. I seem to remember it took a few weeks on my last renewal. This is the first I've ever heard of someone getting it in a couple of days. They must not of been too busy.

    What's a permit?
    Do not take any postings to be the opinion of the poster .. poster may be posting opinions of others and not necessarily himself ... carry on

    "Filing a notice of trespass with your local, county, state authorities , to keep all town employees off your land, would cut down on the government from interfering or harassing you, at least put you in a little bit stronger legal position" .. chk you local laws (disclaimer)

    Mine took almost the entire 45 days. Military with a clearance.

    My civilian wife got hers in a week. Same office, same clerk, same time of year just a year later than mine.

    That's interesting, a friend of mine is a retired Ranger. He put in 30 years of service. He went to purchase a hand gun and it took a week to pass the NICS check. I'm a nobody and my NICS took less than 5 minutes.

    When I retired after 21 years service I was delayed when purchasing firearms for close to 5 years. My employer ran a background on me when I was hired in '98 and it took well over 45 days to come back.

    I have a theory as near as I can figure talking to a lot of people it was because I didn't have much of a paper trial.

    I never lived in one state or country more than 3-1/2 years; always on base.
    The only monthly bills were cable and phone.

    My state of legal residence didn't require I renew my drivers license unless I was in state more than 30 days.
    My license expired in '82 and never got a new one until '98.

    My state of legal residence didn't require I fill out state income tax forms unless I was in state more than 30 days.

    I always had my state of legal residence license plates since I could do it though the mail.

    The company that ran the background check couldn't even verify that I even lived in Florida or North Carolina. My room mates were already there when I moved in so I just paid them cash for my 1/2 of the phone and cable.

    My wife never had an issue with purchasing a firearm or any of her background checks anywhere we lived. I always thought that was interesting.
