    Then you are going to get crazier.

    A few months ago we (the instructors) got a letter from the ASP telling us to inform our students that it could take the full 120 days alloted by law to get the permits and to inform those waiting NOT to call because it takes up time that they could be working on permits.

    They are running full bore as buisness has never been better.

    The requals have been running 3 to 4 weeks, but the CHL's have been averaging anywhere from 12-16 weeks.

    BTW, welcom to the forum. Nice to see another Arky,we have several on here. Where are you from?

    Yep, it's going to take a while. I do hope they will surprise you and get it to you sooner than planned.

    I figured it would take a while...I was hoping I would be one of the lucky ones. I started looking in the mailbox a week after I sent the paperwork in.

    what do you guys carry? I have a Glock 19 and an XD45

    Depends.
    I carry different ones.

    Sig P220 .45
    Colt .45 Stainless Combat Commander
    Sig P239 .40

    and when I dont expect to have to use one, a Keltec PF-9 9mm.

    If I am going to Little Rock, you can bet is something in .45.

    Welcome to the forum Eric..as for your chl, you will just have to be patient. As hotguns said, you can expect the full 120 day wait. Set your goal for that and if luck is on your side, you will probably get a pleasant surprise after only 60 days..but agn, expect the full allowable wait..my renewal last year took 140 days! My FL non res took 105 days! As for living in LR, sorry to hear that.. all the more reason to be armed tho..good luck and be patient.

    Welcome to DC eric1! Like the others said,it will be awhile before Your permit arrives (usually about the time You've forgotten about it.) But that just makes it a nice surprise when it arrives.

    Welcome Eric1, from one Arkie to another. Sorry about living in LR. Good reason to have your CCW. I was prepared to wait the full 120 days, but I received it in about 31 days. (this was early spring 08) Funny thing though, it took 9 days from the issue date, to get it by snail mail to Mtn Home area.

    Welcome to the board from another Arkie.

    Earlier this year it only took about 30 days to get my license. I took the course sometime in January and received my license in February. They really must be booked up if it is really taking the full 120 days to issue them. Be patient. It'll get there.
