    57 days...

    ...from receipt of the application to "Concealed Handgun License: Manufacturing Pending". Texas has 60 days to process a concealed handgun permit application. I emailed them 2 days ago because my status had been "waiting for background check" from the day they received the application (7/27). So now the wait begins to receive the actual permit. Almost there!

    Has anyone found that calling or emailing "helps" to expedite the process? I didn't want to be a pain in the neck, but I also think my email might have nudged my application a little forward in line. (Of course, I emailed them about 3 weeks ago and that didn't help, so who knows?)

    Yeah the background check seems to be the default status while they are taking their sweet time, I had the same thing but still got mine in about 3 weeks

    That's why I love Missouri. The sheriff has 45 days then he must issue whether the background check is completed or not.

    If he has already issued the permit, and it later comes back that the person is not eligible to have the ccw permit, it is now incumbent on the Sheriff to go and retrieve the permit.

    If there are dis-qualifiers noted before the 45 day deadline then he has no problem denying the permit. But on day 45 if there are no dis-qualifiers and the process is still incomplete he must still issue the permit.

    The law was specifically worded so the bureaucracy can not drag their feet. We are not penalized because there is a back-log on background checks.

    I know Alabama catches flack for being a "may issue" state, but dang, you guys wait a long time. I got mine (and I live in the largest county with the most people) in 2 weeks start to finish.

    My CHL took about 5 weeks to process.

    When I applied for mine at the Morrow County Sheriff's Department, well-known for their promptness in the shall-issue process, I was specifically instructed by them NOT to call them, but to wait until I heard from them. A little more than two weeks later they called me and told me to come in and finish the process. My home county is notorious for dragging their feet, usually taking the entire 45 days afforded them by state law. The county loses thousands in revenue each year as a result.

    Still no sign of the permit... I emailed the Texas DPS and they replied: "Your license was issued on 9/22/2011, please allow 7-10 business days for delivery."

    I've heard of snail-mail, but I could walk from Austin to Dallas in 7 to 10 business days!

    We were away for a few days and I received the permit sometime between Wednesday 9/28 and Saturday 10/1! Carried all day and felt great!
