    Is there any mailing requirements for CCW?

    I am going to send in my application, but want to make sure there are no mailing requirements that I did not see in the FAQ. Such as 9x12 envelope etc....

    Anyone know if I can use the standard mailing envelope?

    I used a standard for mine. A friend of mine used a 8 1/2 by 11 envelope and we got ours back at the same time.

    Besides, if they wanted a special envelope they would have listed it on the application.

    If y0u want your application to get processed sooner, it would send it in a box. That would get their attention.

    I used a standard envelope for mine but it felt border line heavy for one stamp so I put 2 on mine just to make sure it got there. My check has been cashed so they apparently got it. Whats the extra .44 cents worth to make sure it gets there?

    We haven't had electronic bill bay for that long, how could you have never used the mail system?
    In God I trust. Everyone else needs to keep your hands where I can see them.

    Not that I know for sure, but a lot of people use this stuff called "cash". I remember having it before I was married, then afterwards it was all a blur.

    Boy you're really going to freak out if I tell you i've never owned a checkbook huh??? I've just never Dealt with places that didn't take cash or plastic, and whenever I get service for something I always researched places that either had offices nearby or online billpay. Nowadays I wont even accept service from a company that doesn't offer online bill pay.

    But yes, i've never mailed a letter that I can remember (my wife does all that for me on the 1 or 2 occasions that i've had to do that.), and personally have never owned a checkbook. I didn't know how to write a check when I first opened my business, and haven't written one since i've closed my business. Lol

    I would NOT mail in an application right now. If they get it friday (thursday's a holiday) they'll have until Jan. 9th, 2013 to process it. If you mail it on Dec. 1st, and they get it on Dec 2nd, they'll have to process it by Dec. 22nd. Mail with delivery confirmation.

    Waiting one more week will gain you 24 days on the deadline. Subtract the week you wait, you still gain 2+ weeks. Delivery confirmation is only a couple bucks, it's worth it. I paid for my postage at the counter ($.64). I didn't do the delivery confirmation, but I got a receipt for the postage, and that receipt has on it the zip-code and P.O. box it was sent to. I don't have proof (when) they received it (other than my check being cashed on the 14th) but I have proof I mailed to DOJ's P.O. box on the 1st.

    ??? I'm sure I missed something about the whole processing, but can you please explain how they have more time if they receive it earlier??? I haven't actually followed up on the processing paperwork regs.

    I don't know the specifics myself, but I do remember them saying that due to the expected work load they will have more time to process the applications at first.

    Permits received by DOJ in the first 30 days after law's begin date of Nov. 1st, must be processed within 45 calender days. After the 1st 30 days (or beginning Dec. 1st, 2011) DOJ has 21 days to process an application received. IOW, if they get your app on Nov. 30th, they have 45 days (Jan. 14th, 2012) to process. If received on Dec. 1st, they have only 21 days to "act" (or Dec. 22, 2011). The one day differance between receiving on Nov. 30th or Dec. 1st, means a 24 day differance in time allotted to DOJ to process application. Get it? If you wait until Dec. 1st (and wisely mail with delivery confirmation to prove when they received it) they have 21 days, not the 45 alotted before Dec. 1st, to act on your app.

    I've aleady waited 22 days, and it will be 24 when my next mail comes on Friday. If I mailed on Dec. 1st instead of Nov. 1st, and was still waiting after 24 days, they already be in violation of the law.
