Not entirely an OC topic, but I'd really rather not sign up for yet another forum to ask it...
I'm sitting here through day 36 of 45, kind of getting a little antsy. Was thinking about calling the clerk of the court to see if there were any issues with my CHP application. Should I just wait till day 45 after mail delivery (Around 1PM for me) or would a check-up call not hurt? Last thing I want to do is be a pest to the guy who hands out permission slips... I just want to make sure it didn't disappear in the mail system...
Also, do the courts send out the CHP in regular First Class Mail or is it sent out certified?

Thanks for the info.
Main reason for concern is that after Sandy, I was getting missent mail at my PO for places in Long Island, NY, Jersey, mainland VA, Maryland, Indiana... Just knowing that with my luck, my CHP was sent out to Alaska...
Also, would a natural disaster be a legitimate reason for it to be handled past 45 days? With how bad things were here, I wouldn't blame them, but it would be nice to know.
Gave them a call, got the scripted response of "it usually takes 4-6 weeks" Guess I'll be the latter. Can't imagine they get too many applications to process...
They did say that Sandy didn't slow anything down. Could it be that I'm a recent transplant? I've read of people getting them in about a week and change in the rest of the state...
Speed of process seems to vary considerably by county. Some report getting their permits very swiftly (roughly a couple weeks), others wait the full 45 days.
I don't know if the police are required to do more than call the jurisdictions in which you formerly resided. A deputy clerk once told me that the cop will sometimes travel to the previous address and verify that it exists, but I don't know if that is compulsory.
I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.
If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?
There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
Sure makes me happy I don't have to deal with that Crap.
Mine arrived at my house on the 45th day. According to the paper work it had sat there for 3 weeks waiting for a judge to sign it. Be patient and wait the 45 days. If it doesn't show up, head up to the courthouse an request (demand if necessary) a temporary permit.
My VA permit just expired so I got a PA permit (required to OC in a vehicle in PA) The reason I mention it here is because I took my application in and had my permit in hand about 30 minutes later. Sure beats all the pointless waiting.

I've already contacted my Delegate about the sorry-azz State Police background check outfit and how we need to dump them and just go with the Fed system like most of the other states use.
Came in today, the day after I get all antsy. Lol
I turned in my renewal 11/30 to Chesterfield. Last time they took 42 days. Let's see how long they wait this time.
