    The wait is how long? I feel like I just moved to NY.

    I submitted the a paper work, picture, and everything to my County Clerk's office today. While giving me further instructions (where to go to get finger pinted) I was told that the wait will be about 5 MONTHS. At first I thought I heard her wrong, so I inquired... Nope it is 5 months.

    Irony is everywhere else in Michigan (form what I hear on other forum boards) the wait in most of the other counties does not exceed 2 to 3 months.

    I looked into it further, and found that the time clock does not start until the gun board gets all my info... The County Clerk provides them the info, and from what I have been told, she is anti gun. Personally, in an era of computers, electronic records, and the Internet, it should not take 5 months to respond to anyone for anything.

    I don't know what my options are at this point. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Maybe I should get an OWB holster and fill it with rocks. When anyone asks that it is, I can explain to them that my County wants me to wait as long as possible before I can carry anything more powerful.

    Get a sling shot to go with those rocks. I submitted my paperwork here in Tennessee the day after Christmas. I got a letter in the mail last Thursday that told me my fingerprints were unreadable. It took them 60 days to figure out that my digitally scanned fingerprints were unreadable at the FBI office when the machine had them all at 90% or better. BTW, I am a Federal employee with a TS clearance, so my prints are on file with the FBI.

    So, I went last Friday and got reprinted. I hope that doesn't start the 90 day clock running over again. Good luck.
    I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.

    This stuff really bothers me. They need to add the fee, wait, fingerprints, "list", etc. to the second amendment....don't see it there. Imagine if freedom of speech and freedom from search & seizure required the same nonsense.

    This is exactly why many states have statutes that dictate shall-issue and the maximum time for which any CHL approval/denial can take. There's no excuse for an anti-gunner to drag the feet on this sort of thing, other than petty political bias and deliberate, conscious failure to protect, defend and uphold the Constitution and laws of the state, which all hirelings have been hired to do. A background check and (at worst) contacting a couple of your references (if your state CHL process requires such a thing) can't take but a couple hours of actual time; there's no way it should be a 5mos delay.

    Does your state have any specific time limit in the statutes?

    In Mass., the law says applications must be processed within 40 days. The current wait is at least 10 weeks. The volume of applications (they claim) has just overwhelmed the system at the state and local police level. Ridiculous! They made the law (the state) they should live by their own laws.

    Here in VA they have 45 days to approve or deny. If they are not complete in 45 days they must send you a certified copy of your application, which serves as a permit until they finish the process.

    Wouldn't recommend a sling shot in Florida, it's against the law.

    In Missouri if they don't approve or deny the application within 45 days, it is approved by default. Great way to handle this.

    IMO, that's absolutely the way it should occur. Kudos to MO citizens and their reps for getting that one on the books.

    Recieved mine in KY within 60 days. State law says "shall issue/deny" within 90 days.

    I live in Michigan and it took less than 2 months. The County Clerk told me the same thing and I didn't say "BOO". I just said a word of thanks and walked out of County Building.

    These individuals are overwhelmed with Concealed Weapon Permits by the way. Be patient and before you know you will have your Carry License..

    I was still very polite and just inquired about the time because I thought that there was no way that they would say 5 months. My guess is you did not get your permit in a county that starts with K and ends in "ent".
