    I received mine in about 85 days last Septmber-ish. And I know someone who is rapidly approaching the 90 day time limit.

    SC is backed up big time! I just completed my instructors training & waiting as well, I had 3 in my church to go through the CWP & 2 other friends & it was 80+ days so it's in process! SLED said they have one ID unit at the DMV that prints all the ID's & it went down for a few weeks & it's up & pumping them out now!

    I'm 29 days in. Got a nice letter from Gov. Haley about 2 weeks ago congratulating me on choosing to exercise my rights.

    "A watched pot never boils". "Que sera, sera, whatever will be will be". Ever heard this saying and those words from a song? Frustrating--yes, government at work--yes. Anyone's guess--yes. Any answer you get will only get you more frustrated. Relax and take a deep breath. As long as you get it before the the coming Nov election, you are OK.

    My wife's is at about 95 days out from arrival at SLED now. Still waiting. Heard a few others also in same boat. Sounds like everyone else is experiencing the same.

    My father's took 87 days, mine took maybe 98... his wait time just stands out more since he bitched about it not being in the mail every day after the first week of sending it in.

    I submitted my information March 26. I called and found out my permit was issued June 29. I have yet to receive it and called again to inquire yesterday, July 10.
    The not-so-nice lady said they would not reissue until 15 business days had passed, and that 10 days is not excessive for the mail. I did not ask for them to reissue anything, just wanting to make sure it had actually left the last desk it was sitting on. I was a little upset with her response considering Columbia is only a 1 hour drive from me.
    For the others waiting, in a phone call 2 weeks ago, I found out that there were problems around April with the fingerprint system that delayed processing of a great many applications.

    It took mine 93 days. Don't expect it before the 90 day mark.
