    From the Virginia State Police website:

    http://www.vsp.state.va.us/Firearms_...letewithin45Da

    If Your Application is Not Complete within 45 Days

    If the court has not issued the permit or determined that the applicant is disqualified within 45 days of the date of receipt noted on the application, the clerk shall certify on the application that the 45-day period has expired, and send a copy of the certified application to the applicant. The certified application shall serve as a de facto permit, which shall expire 90 days after issuance, and shall be recognized as a valid concealed handgun permit when presented with a valid government-issued photo identification until the court issues a five-year permit or finds the applicant to be disqualified. If the applicant is found to be disqualified after the de facto permit is issued, the applicant shall surrender the de facto permit to the court and the disqualification shall be deemed a denial of the permit and a revocation of the de facto permit. If the applicant is later found by the court to be disqualified after a five-year permit has been issued, the permit shall be revoked.

    Yeah, but they wouldn't let you use it until you were 18.

    It took about 2 weeks for mine to arrive and the same period for my wife, both of us in Lynchburg. Friends in Bedford Co. have received theirs in about 2 weeks as well; same goes for Amherst Co. and Appomattox Co. Campbell Co. dragged their feet till the last possible day for a friend of mine, but she received it in the mail at around day 46.

    About 30 days for them to finally get around to mailing it. It was completed in about two weeks though. Fairfax County.

    I got mine in less than two weeks! Although I was switching from a VA non-resident to a VA resident when I moved back.

    8 days from Loudoun County. It took 3 hours for my background check to clear when I bought my first gun a week earlier, but only 8 days to get my CHP issued. Thought that was strange, but I'm not complaining.

    I am currently on day 40. Still have not received mine.

    And I don't think the background check thing has anything to do with the wait time. Mine literally took like 10 seconds.

    I had mine in 5 days. yes.... five.

    They were processing it but they smeared the ink (coffee i believe) and had to rewrite the form. They called me and corrected/confirmed the information. I asked if it was done, and she said yes, she was going to mail them out "asap". I asked if i could drive down and get it. She said SURE!

    So.... with that being said, i wonder how long those completed forms sit in the office waiting to be mailed out.

    Interesting question Djeeper...
    Considering the fact that the background check can be done in a matter of minutes, why the 45 day wait?

    The fastest return I've heard of with a CHP was the wife's new CHP after she changed her name when we were married. The City of Lynchburg goofed a portion of her name or address (can't recall which) and she called them up in the afternoon to tell them of the problem. The clerk or clerk's representative took note of the issue and the very next day a new CHP was in the mailbox at our homeplace. I think a self addressed stamped envelope was also included in the letter so that she could send back the CHP with the erroneous information.
