    New Member - New CHL Applicant - Colorado Wait Times

    Howdy all! I've been lurking around here long enough

    I'm a newer member here and recently (yesterday) took my training certificate, two checks, and completed CHP application in to the Boulder County Sheriff's Office after having gone a couple months pinching pennies and getting my ducks in a row with finding a CCW, training, & saving for the fees.

    Currently, Boulder County is using all 90 days mandated by the state to process and kick out new permits. For those who may not be aware, Colorado is a "shall-issue" state and requires sheriff's offices process all requests within 90 days. Many counties out here have been requiring the full 90 days to process requests as gun purchases and CCW classes have been on the rise since around October (go figure).

    I'm encouraged by the level-headed folks here who carry and share stories of their experiences and am glad to be joining the community. I recently learned my father has his permit and have met several "regular" folks who either have their permit or, like me, are in the process of obtaining one.

    Like my father keeps saying... "an armed society is a polite society"

    Welcome! You're about to go thru one of the longest 90 day waits ever.

    If I can make one recommendation; do some reading up here on posts that talk about keeping your CCW status private. You can make up your own mind but it's probably an important topic for new people starting out carrying. I know there are a few people out there I wish I wouldn't have let know I was going after my permit.

    Thanks! We discussed that in our course and my wife and I have talked about that on several occasions. The way I see it, my friends know I'm a shooter and a few folks know I've been interested in applying for CCW. Like you mentioned, from here on out, though, I'm not going to advertise the fact. And yes, the wait's going to be a rough one -- if I'd applied right after my class (doh!) I'd already have it or it'd be coming soon. As it is, it'll be here right in time for spring walks after dinner

    I got mine in Weld county just before the election and it took 7 weeks then. I would expect it to take even longer now with the increase in requests.

    Welcome and congratulations on getting the process started.

    I work from home in Florida but my company's office is in Boulder. Beautiful place but too many liberal types for my taste.

    I think in Boulder you are only allowed to carry with rubber bullets.

    welcome...most county's in Colo. take the full 90 days and it does seem like forever. If you do get bored tho you can always open carry up there...you are allowed to do that but with all the libs in boulder someone will probably freak out which sometimes can get interesting for sure.
