    My boss sent his in October and had it in 5 weeks. Next door neighbor sent his first week of November and got it in the mail today (had to call me to brag). He had a blip on his record, so it probably took a little extra scrutiny.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
