Just sent mine off today.
How long is it taking lately???
Mine took 47 days mailbox to mailbox but I use to live in another State so they had to run a check where I use to live so yours might take a little less time...then again, they are probably processing more applications now than when I applied so you might be looking at about the same timeframe or longer.

Mine took about 6 weeks, but it was a renew and it was in the summer
No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.
My CHL is due to be renewed this year so it has been a while since I got mine CHL and I don't remember how long it took. However with the high volume of applications these days it may take a while, but it will worth the wait the first time you leave your house with it & your carry.

5 weeks here last May. Probly will be longer now, more applications.
It has been 14 days, but whose counting? They are real busy this year and almost all the people I know have either taken the class or are planning on it in the next 3 weeks.
I have had mine a couple months. It took 52 days I think. I think they are just really busy. Have fun checking your status every day!!! Lol
Mailed my app in Dec 18th. Just showed up on the status screen Tuesday as waiting background check.
Took my test in may. Took right abot 6 weeks.

I mailed mine in first week of October and I should have the plastic in hand by this weekend. Don't know why it took so long, but whaddaya gonna do?
Man, looks like is gonna be a while..... Thanks for the responses, hopefully get it in or before April.
I sent my packet of required documentation to them about a week and a half ago. Checked on the status just now and it's showing that they are still waiting for it. This leads me to believe that although they've received my packet, they just haven't gotten around to opening it yet. I imagine they have probably have rooms full of packets stacked to the ceiling right about now.
At this rate, I don't expect my license until the end of February at the earliest.
Mine took six weeks and I sent it at the end of July. Got it in October.
