    ccw wait time

    I was wondering how long it takes to get your ccw after the application is submitted. From what I have read is that you may apply in your county or counties that adjacent to yours. I live in richland county which I've been told takes 40 - 45 days. Does anyone know about Ashland,Huron,Knox,Crawford or Morrow. I'm just wondering if it would be better to get it in another county. I atill plan on open carrying put am a little tired of the unloading and storing in a motor vehicle dance.

    The only one I could find anything for was Knox county, and they were taking about 3 weeks. You might ask over on the Ohioans for Concealed Carry forums at http://ohioccwforums.org/index.php

    But he's limited to his county or an adjacent county.

    Those of us who have been in OFCC a long time have seen this occur with troubling frequency especially in the rural counties. Believe it or not there may be only ONE sheriff's office employee tasked with CHL processing duties. If that person is sick, dead, on vacation, whatever there is supposedly no one else capable of filling in.

    Always made me wonder if they had similar personnel shortages related to processing guests into/ out of their county detention facility as well. "Oh, sorry, Deppity Fred is visiting kin down in Georgia and he musta took the dang jail keys with him."

    My advice is to give them the full 45 calendar days before going up the chain of command with your questions and or complaints.

    Wait time

    Well your problem lies in the fact that Ohio does not have a system in place to issue "CCW's".

    I applied on the 26th of June and it was ready on the 27th of June, but they didn't notify me at all. Just pick up today after calling to check on it.
