    Sent off my CCW application to BCI yesterday. They said it should take about 100 days to recieve my permit. So now it's just a waiting game. Time to look into some good holsters for oc, or cc depending on my mood, now that I have a choice. I thank the members of this forum for letting me know that this is an acceptable course of action instead of being unattainable or way too much work like I thought before. I'll try to be more active on this forum in the future instead of lurking around. See ya around.

    Not sure if you added an extra zero, my permit came to me in about 10 days. I was surprised to see how quickly they act. My wifes permit came even faster. :celebrate

    I didn't, lady said 100. How long ago did you get yours? You've got me licking my lips in anticipation.

    My application's been in for 52 days. I'm hoping to get it by hunting season.

    I thought all the money the legislature sent to BCI was supposed to fix the backlog??? 100 days is longer than it was before they started getting the application fees directly.

    From what I understand they are being inundated with applications right now because of the price increase starting Sept. 1st. But yeah, that is a really crappy wait time. I think with a wait like that they should issue temporaries more frequently.

    That's sounds familiar, the CHSB in Massachusetts is always chronically backlogged. It took them 2 or three months when I got my first LTC. So I was really surprised when I got my renewal back within a month. Other people have had the process take even longer so I guess I got lucky. Libral states suck!!!!

    My appication, and out-a-state one, took over 5 months, and was recieved just a couple of weeks ago.

    They are in the process of training additional people, but a look at their web site will show how long these are taking.

    As of today:

    " We are currently processing concealed permit application for Utah residents received on May 16, 2007. We are currently processing concealed permit applications for out-of-state residents received on April 15, 2007 "

    I applied while I was on leave back in May. Haven't seen it yet, hopefully it's trying to catch up with my moves in the mail.

    The delay at BCI is NOT getting much better despite significant funding increases from the legislature this last session.

    Near as I can discern, the problem is with the new director, Ed McConkie.

    I suggest concerned parties call your legislators, the governor, lt governor, and ag, and ask why BCI is being allowed to continue violation of the law. They are statutorily bound to issue (or deny) permits within 60 days. They did so in the past with less funding.

    If the new guy can't or won't makeit work, he should be replaced.

    You can contact info for your legislator and other State officials at www.le.state.ut.us or at goutahorg.org.
