No real big deal but for a while I was really wondering how long they (the OSBI) were going to take! I am in Oklahoma, who recognizes every other states' CCW. I first got my license in 1999, renewed it in 2003 (4 years) and now 5 years later had to renew again. It seemed to me the renewal in 03 was quick and easy. This year, I sent in my renewal app on August 6th (2 passport type photos and a renewal application). The only difference was that I could opt for a 10 year license or just 5 -- I went for the 10 years ($170 vs. $85). I think Oklahoma may eventually go Indiana's way and have a lifetime license.
Anyway it took them 48 days to send it; I was getting a little antsy about it because my old license expired September 8th. I read somewhere that in Oklahoma, they would "let you slide" on that one until the end of the month, but I would hate to be the test case. I am one that carries religiously and hate to be unarmed over such silliness.
I'm just wondering about other's experiences with this type of thing, in other states.
