We sent in two on the 1st in separate envelopes. My wife's check cleared on the 14th and mine on the 17th. She used a training certificate from one of my classes and I had to use hunters safety from 30 years ago because my NRA certification is not valid as it does not have all the BS info on the cert. Still waiting on both permits. I am beginning to think there is one person wildly ripping open envelopes and tossing the check in a basket for deposit. Then they toss the paperwork into a paid bucket that folks grab a handful of as their pile on their desk runs low.
I guess the only saving grace is that I am still waiting for my new Black Ops Pro holsters from Rocky. It is probably better that I don't get the permit until the holsters get here. Otherwise I may be forced to grab one of my wife's extra purses, toss the gun in and call it a European Carry All.
No joy at the mailbox today. But I did get some junkmail.lol

On the return trip 3 squad cars and an ambulance.... dont know what happened so ill wait for the news all i know that group wasnt so big th second time i saw em....

Hello Wisconsinites, I live in VA and have been keeping up with your State guns laws for a long time, my wife grew in Racine. So glad to see you now have a shall issue permit system. When we visit again, I can use my PA non-resident permit to be legal there because my VA permit doesn't have resiprocity yet with WI. RTKBA even applies to WI now!
I believe the DOJ has just had a huge "open up the envelopes and cash the checks/money orders" party. I've seen a couple reports of people mailing on the 7th and having their checks cashed so I checked on my money order. It was mailed on the 8th and was cashed on the 21st.
They reported having over 30,000 apps on or around the 8th. So they've cashed 30,000 plus checks and are on about 12,000 issued permits right now...I'm still expecting to wait another 3-4 weeks for my permit to arrive. And am expecting to see a whole lot of angry posts saying "they cashed my check weeks ago and I still don't have my permit!"
I sent mine in on Nov 1st. used my DD214, got my permit on 11/10 number 4088. Sure feels good having it on my hip.

Sent my application on Nov. 1st ,with delivery confirmation, & all the required info - Copies of training certificates , copies of valid out of state permits, etc., check cleared my bank on the 15th.......still waiting.....I'm guessing they are just grabbing & sending randomly.....some got their permits in less than 10 days......oh well -been carrying for years anyway , but it would be good to be legal !
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Just came across this forum as I'm a new member. I'm in the same boat as quite a few here, still playing the waiting game!
11/3 --- Application, Check, & Training Requirements Sent Out.
11/15 --- Check Cleared Bank.
11/24 --- No Permit, No Mail, Plenty Of Turkey.
11/25 --- ????? If Not Received, Another Turkey Will Be Sacrificed.
Will wait IMPATIENTLY, but until then I'll just Open-Carry where I know I can. I just don't like some of the stares I get when I do.

It's my understanding that Wisconsin is not a must inform state but the pamphlet that came with my permit states to inform the officer that I have a permit and that Im carrying it seems like they are asking something that is not required.
