    Warrenton might not be as bad, but Fairfax county has some very liberal judges and you WILL NOT see a permit until the exact 45th day (the max they can make u wait by law). Good luck with that.

    From the VCDL

    If it takes more than 45 days remember the following from the
    VCDL's Website
    My Permit is Taking More Than 45 Days!

    A VCDL supported law went into effect on July 1st, 2004 which provides that if the court has not issued or denied the permit within 45 days of the date of receipt noted on the application, the clerk shall certify on the application that the 45-day period has expired, and send a copy of the certified application to the applicant. The certified application shall serve as a de facto permit, which shall expire 90 days after issuance, and shall be recognized as a valid concealed handgun permit when presented with a valid government-issued photo identification.

    If you are having a problem with getting your permit or de facto permit, the Circuit Courts in Virginia are supervised by the Chief Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court and he has expressed concerns about the way the various Circuit Courts have been flagrantly violating the law. It is strongly suggested that you complain directly to him. Be polite and provide as much detail as possible - names, dates, comments made by officials, documents provided by officials, etc.:

    Culpeper seems to push the 45 day limit right to the edge

    Got my original in 2002 and seems like they took most of the 45 days. And I had to go to the clerk's office and pick it up in person and they were only giving them out one day a week. My truck was hit by a Lexus in Manassas as I was on my way home early to get the permit. I called the clerk and was able to pick it up the next day because of the accident.

    My renewal is in the works right now and looks like it'll take the full 45 again. If it does I'll be without a permit for about a week. I turned it in a little late due to a business trip and a broken ankle. Even at that, the person at the clerk's office said the judge doesn't like the application turned in until the permit's within 45 days of expiring!

    I did just get a letter from the county Commonwealth's Attorney saying that he'd sent the application to the judge for signature. Got the same form letter the first time around, too. On the bright side, they mail the permits out now instead of going to the office. So that'll save me some lost time at work.

    I can't imagine Warrenton taking the full 45 days. My buddy in Loudon got it in a week or so.

    I don't know that he has any other "rules." This one was a surprise to me, but it's my first renewal. I didn't have any trouble with the first application, except that the county seemed to want to drag it out to the last of the 45 days the law gives them.

    I first got the permit because of a sort of domestic situation. The biological father (long rap sheet) of two of our kids came to our area from Arkansas. I got a protective order and the judge and LEO's I dealt with were very helpful. Told the judge I'd applied for a permit and he just said to be careful. Just learned yesterday that this guy has recently been released, again. Time to ratchet up the awareness level.

    I haven't had any incidents or LEO encounters while carrying, concealed or open, in Culpeper county or any other place I've gone. I just had a few days in West Virginia and Ohio and had to look up the off-limits places for those states, but no troubles.
