i applied for my ccw in december of last year, and they told me that because of unprecedented numbers of applicants the process would take the full 90 days. Two weeks before the three month mark I still had not been called for my fingerprints and photo, so I called to see if there was a problem. Straight to voicemail, which said not to leave a message about photo appointments. The 90 day mark came, I called and got no call back, so i went to the sheriff's office, where i found out that they "put my papers in the wrong stack". So, I'll get my card on the 111 day mark. The wrong stack.

This is the first I've heard of a problem in Colorado. Even in El Paso county (highest number of permit holders in the state) I had my permit in 6 weeks
I hate it when I get put in the wrong stack!

Hey, it's Boulder. Figures, even for Colorado. What else do you expect from a bunch of liberal and progressive dolts in the most liberal town in Colorado. Logic?
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
It took me just over 4 months in Mesa county, the SO said it was due to a record amount of applications! I got it so I don't worry about it anymore! 6 weeks piece of cake, suprised boulder even issues CCWs??

Got mine in Boulder about day 85. I was getting worried but it would be unfortunate to have had to wait, even if only a few weeks. Look at it this way, at least you have it now and it's good for 5 years. Congrats. I would have assumed it would have tapered off some. I for one am GLAD it's still going strong. The more CCWs out there, the safer the world will be.
Glad to hear there are pro-gun folks in Boulder!!

My permit is through Boulder County. It only took about three weeks for my renewel to show up in the mail. I have delt with the people there at the Sheriff's Office for several years now and I have always had good experiences with them.
13 months ago I got mine in El Paso county and it took 77 days because of the record number of applications.
My wife is going to apply soon. She should already have her CHP, but procrastination is her friend.
47 Days is what it took me to recieve mine it felt like forever but I guess it could be alot worse.
Colorado state law requires a permit or denial to be issued "not greater than 90 days" after the application has been turned in. I think I would call again and see if they can speed things up a little.
