    The wait finally begins!

    Well, I finally got all my ducks in a row and sent off my packet to Austin today. I filled out the app online while waiting on various paperwork from places I used to live... I've got an app number and a pin number... is there any way to check the status online?

    I figure I should be carrying by what? Christmas? Oh well... better than nothing I suppose...

    To keep my mind off of it I'll be teaching my mom how to shoot and helping her through the process of getting a CHL. Too bad the it's not the wife... but hey, one mountain at a time - she's finally okay with (and is insistent) that I start to carry.

    Maybe not. They have hired many temps to fill in and I think apps are getting processed faster, from what I have heard. Also Col. what's his name has resigned from the Boss' chair at DPS for this and several other reasons (um, Gov. Mansion burning down) so I think they are taking it the best they can and picking up steam.

    Of course I could be totally wrong and you may be doing your Wally Walk next year; but let's hope for the best.

    Excellent news! I hope that your wait is not quite that long, but it will come! Cudos also for teaching your mom to defend herself. Good luck also with your wife too!

    Good luck bro, hopefully things will improve with the changes. But don't be surprised if it's the Easter Bunny instead of Santa...

    I sent my app in April 21, 2008. It took them until August 18th to send me letter about a possible issue that turned up on my background check. Took two weeks to get certified docs back to them. Just got my CHL yesterday, September 12th! Subtract a few weeks for the run-around and several days for the mail, and that's still at least 120+ days!

    Call them no earlier or later than exactly 60 calendar days from the date they received it for the status. Then keep on 'em... You did send your app certified mail return receipt, right? My instructor was very clear to do that.

    Good work with your mom, glad both my parents already got their CHL.

    congrads on applying for your permit. the time should go by
    quick. good job in teaching your mom to shot and the wife
    is next right!!. you all then can go to the range and have
    a family day or something like that.
    ifyou think it might be there around x-mas, maybe it
    will be in your stocking.
