    Hot Digity Dog Dang - it took only 7 days!

    My wife's permit came today! One week to the day that she turned in her application, she has her permit in hand! This year has been awesome year so far. My wife decided it was time to get her permit, she took her course, she bought her 1st gun, and now she has her permit in hand.

    It will take some time for her to start carrying, as she takes things step by step, but today after she got her permit, she said she needs to get a new belt, a more sturdy one....

    Have I ever said how great my wife is?

    Congratulations to your wife. I applaud the state of Montana for having such an efficient system. Also you for encouraging her to carry -- that is unless she was bugging you. Either way, it's all good.

    I apparently live in the wrong state. I have said this before, but I sent in my paperwork on Dec 27th. I got a letter Feb 27th stating that my fingerprints were unreadable (they were digital). I refingerprinted Feb 28th. I call last week and they told me the second set was unreadable (digital from a different place). They told me they would just do a name check and I should have it in a week to 10 days. We'll see.
    I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.

    My county in NY told me to expect 6 to 8 months due to high volume so I only have 5 to 7 months to wait! It is killing me, but glad for you all.

    Thanks for the congrats, I passed them on to my wife. The number of permit applicants are on the rise this year. I guess the number of applicants they processed in a month last year, they do in a week now. When my wife went to get fingerprinted, there was a very long line at the electronic machine, so the sped up the line and did it old style ink and card. They still were able to process it and get it mailed in a week.

    WOW! I am impressed! Even if you Spouse is not into carrying, if ya got to leave it in the car, she would legally be in possession.

    Had mine 5 days after I turned in my paperwork to the county sheriff. It's the one thing in MN that isn't beurocracized.

    I am in MT and my wife and I are still waiting. It has been a little over a week and locally I heard it takes 2 weeks here. Good news to you. Locally we have to use the old INK METHOD for fingerprinting still.

    Congrats to the wife! It's always good to hear of a new member of the carry community. It sounds like she will be a ready, safe carrier when she begins.

    That's quite a wait. I had mine in hand (in Berkeley County) in ten days. It's taking a lot longer than usual in most states, WV included, due to demand.
