Sent mine in on the 1st, regular mail, check cleared on 10th and I just got it in the mail today. My license #is in the 2400's.
I mailed mine on 11/1, it was issued on 11/7, they mailed it on 11/8, and it arrived on 11/9. My license number is in the 2100's.
I imagine that a large part of the issue comes from how they verify the data. I imagine they didn't work out the necessary details needed for information verification prior to the permits being mailed in. When I say they, I mean the administration of the DoJ.
I'm still waiting for my check to clear as well.
Sent mine in on the 2nd(was out of the state on the 1st). Check has not cleared as of today yet. Have new SP-101 and ISW holster ready to go as soon as I have a piece of paper that says I am not a criminal.
I dropped it off at a post office in St. Paul, Mn on Nov 1 at 7am. It was issued 11-9-11. My # is around the 3100 area. I am a happy man! :danceban: I was surprised it came this quick.
Well lets see now. I sent in my app first thing in the morning 11/1/2011. FINALLY, check hit my bank this morning. Now I'll watch the mail with a bit more anticipation.
Check cleared this morning, now it's a wait for the mail.
My wife's check cleared yesterday, but I am sure mine is still stuck under the copy machine.
I mailed my application, with DD214, on 11/1 at 1030 AM from West Allis. Check cleared last Thursday. I got the permit today (11/15). License number is just over 5000.
