    CWP turn around time?

    According to this link CCWs might take 90 days. Does anyone have any recent experience with getting a concealed permit in Maine?

    TIA

    Expired permits are good until the issuing authority denies or approves the renewal.

    Mine have taken a month each. (Original application and a reapplication after I moved). But I've been hearing its taking a lot longer particularly applications through the state police.

    Title 25: INTERNAL SECURITY AND PUBLIC SAFETY
    Part 5: PUBLIC SAFETY
    Chapter 252: PERMITS TO CARRY CONCEALED HANDGUNS


    12. Permit for a resident of 5 or more years to be issued or denied within 30 days; permit for a nonresident and resident of less than 5 years to be issued or denied within 60 days. The issuing authority, as defined in this chapter, shall issue or deny, and reply in writing as to the reason for any denial, within 30 days of the application date in the case of a resident of 5 or more years and within 60 days of the application date in the case of a nonresident or in the case of a resident of less than 5 years. If the issuing authority does not issue or deny a request for a permit renewal within the time limits specified in this subsection, the validity of the expired permit is extended until the issuing authority issues or denies the renewal.

    Thanks Guys,

    Looks like I'm in the 60+ day group since I just relocated back to Bangor after a 2 year stint in CT and I forgot to go to BMV to change my license over then. First thing I'll be doing on the 16th it seems. And it looks like I won't get to see the permit till my visit next year as I'll be back in Ukraine when it comes in the mail.

    It'd be nice if they were faster though. meh, no biggie I can wait a year to OC in the car.

    Thanks Max.

    I don't anticipate having mine in hand before I head back home to Ukraine so it looks like I'll hafta wait to carry legally in my car until next year.

    Look down the Maine forum page some more and find my thread where I discussed the amount of time it took. It definitely wasn't 80 days though! Jeesh!
    Once more into the fray.

    It should be within 60 days as the law requires. But the State Police doesn't believe that the law applies to them so it will take a lot longer. I really don't know the time. Just don't expect it in 60 days.

    Thanks.

    The police here don't follow the law here either, they make a mockery of it.

    I have my app packet ready to go. I'm waiting for Wed (when my Big Green Wienie checks hit the bank, then off it goes.

    Sadly I won't get to CC until next year as I'll be back over The Pond before the Permit arrives this year. I'll try to keep ya'll posted on the progress.

    It was a renewal, so I could motor already. My old permit expired on July 4th, but since I had submitted my application before the expiration, my old permit was still valid until I got my new one.
