Todays the day I get my permit! I am sure of it. Day 45 from the send date. If I dont, I will be the only guy I have seen on this site goung over 45 days not counting the guys who had to refile because of improperly filled out applications or guys having trouble with background checks. I hope I get it, sent 11/4, cashed 11/21.
I'll assume there are lots of reasons for this not all the USPO fault so given that I'll bet we CC types were 10X more careful with out addresses to that brings it down to 30 lost forever.
I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.
I'm really hoping that with the 21 day people, the DOJ decided to cash the checks the same day the license is issued. Not holding my breath though :-/
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Department of Justice says its resources are being stretched to the limit as it rushes to meet deadlines for processing applications for concealed carry gun permits.
The DOJ has been asking employees to work overtime and is pulling employees from other units to help.
The Legislature gave the department enough funding to hire one more full-time employee and 10 more part-time employees to process applications. DOJ spokeswoman Dana Brueck says that hasn't been enough, but the department so far is meeting all deadlines.
The Legislature gave the department 45 days to process applications submitted between Nov. 1 and Dec. 1. The department has 21 days to process applications received after Dec. 1. The department had received nearly 56,000 applications as of Dec. 11.

To those who want more required training to obtain a permit.
Even though this is realy not the place for this discussion, it continues to come up, and I believe that it is an important enough issue that it should be addressed propperly.
Seems to be a lot of chatter about requiring more education, My personal beliefs are that even the manditory hunters safety infringes on my constitutional rights. Now that dosnt make Hunters safety, or any cc class bad by any means, as a mater of fact hunters safety, in my belief, helps protect our rights. In my expirence most (not all) people who want to infringe upon my rite to bear arms are just unfamiliar or uncomfortable with guns. Hunters safety is an awsome introduction to our youth into the safe use of firearms. Because of my up-bringing, guns have alwase been a large part of my life, I learned from an eirly age that a gun is nothing more than a tool. The more you shoot, the more comfortable you become, untill the firearm becoms nothing more than an extension of your own body, thats rite a tool. It is at this point that you trully understand that guns dont kill people, its the people holding them that kill. So even though hunters safety and further education is of the utmost importance to introduce our youth to proper use of firearms because that youth will be makeing the laws in our future and I for one want lawmakers who understand just what a firearm is, requireing hunters safety is unconstitutional! Or is it? Before the age of 18 years it can be argued that a person has few or no constitutional rights, So hunters safety could actualy be made manditory in all schools for all children, Why not? They got our kids putting condoms on bannanas in some goofy states now. Further education is important. I am a responsible adult. I will make a responsible decision. But in the end, constitutionally it is MY decision, not yours, not the governments, MINE. I have also had a cc course, because you are rite I also believe knowing the law is an important aspect of this whole thing, I just dont want the govt. telling me I have to do it any more than I want the govt. telling me that I broke the law cause I ate at Mc Donalds and Mc Donalds is bad for me and if I eat their enugh it will eventually kill me. Any time Govt mandates, it limits your freedom. I am not saying you are wrong, because you are not wrong, at least not any more wrong than I am. Their is a line for everyone drawin between freedom and personal protection. Give up a little freedom you gain a little protection. Give up a little protection you gain a little freedom. That line is drawn between protection and freedom differently in every single man women and child. Best we can do is debate it an try to understand the others point of view. And yes I do understan yours, its just that my line is just drawn in a little different place than yours. Dosnt make either of us wrong in my point of view. At least not enough that we cant just agree to disagree.

I just got back from Wally World and refueling the truck. I forgot the sidearm was even on me! Carrying the bags in I heard a loud clunk, the semi under the coat at the 4:00 position bumped on the door frame! I started to laugh.
Well 45 days since I put it in the mail!
Issued 30 days after they cashed my check!
