This is a discussion on Got my handgun permit today... Guess how long it took within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; My older brother applied for his 2 years ago and received it in 4 months. A guy I work with got his in 9 months ...
My older brother applied for his 2 years ago and received it in 4 months. A guy I work with got his in 9 months after applying around the same time as my brother, but he also has a very common name, making background checks take longer. Then a guy I work with at my other job got his in 6 months. I applied for mine recently and got in in 11 days! I'm pretty happy to say the least. Now, my Ruger SR1911 CMD is supposed to arrive Monday. Heck yeah!
BTW, I live in Indiana
One loves to possess arms, though they hope never to have occasion for them.
"Carry your gun - it's a lighter burden than regret."
When the time it takes to get a permit issued is measured in months, there is something grievously wrong. Either by design, by incompetence, or by under-staffing the state is depriving the citizen of his or her rights, beyond the usual infringements.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
Is this a carry permit, or a purchase permit?
"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing." - Adolf Hitler

Congratulations! Keep calm and CARRY on.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
Here the state has 60 days to issue a carry permit.

You got me beat and I thought mine was fast, several years ago mine took 15 days. Congrats.
Congrats on the new status. Be careful though, what goes up must come down.

Congratulations. Always carry safe and shoot safer.
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
Congrats! I made my appt with the Tampa, FL Dept. of Agriculture on 12/12, and I hear that the wait time is a lot less now. Not really in a rush though, so if I end up waiting a month or two I'm good.
