    It is 45 business days. And to answer the other question, if the government was a person, he'd miss his own funeral. In other words, they will drag their feet and take all the time in the world. (in most cases) After 45 days though, I believe that have to issue you a temporary permit, even if the background check is still not complete.Maybe this link will help.

    Who do you know? You must have connections... I'll bet you're part of big oil, aren't you?

    Here in Lehigh county, the majority of people I know who have applied for CCW permits have gotten them within a week or so.

    Anytime! I trust you're OCing while you're waiting for your permit, right? Just kidding, but it would be great if you were. Welcome to OC!

    No worries, we'll have you converted to the dark side before long! I need a Darth Vader smiley... I need to talk to Mike the super mod to see about Vader being our next addition. After all, we are "the bad boys" of gun carrying, right?

    Not that I know of. Are you old? Maybe your background check was too long, or Noah's flood ruined your birth certificate, who knows? Have you called to check on what's going on?

    What can it hurt? Hopefully it works out okay for you. Remember, you could be OCing for free, and without waiting... Just a thought. Ok, I'm done with my OC infomercial.
