    Hey neighbor! Erie county is usually a week to 10 days but I know they are swamped right now. They had a news report that they are processing about 1500 a month right now. They have 45 days to process it but I doubt it will take that long. As far as I know, Sandy is the only guy in the department that does the work. Hopefully, they get him some help. If you don't hear anything within 45 days, call them.
    Btw, Bob Merski is one of the good guys, we're lucky to have him as sherriff.

    You have nothing to complain, I had to wait 5 weeks here in Lancaster County! Each county is different. Just be patient. Everyone and their mother is getting a permit because of Obama. I had to wait 2 months for my UT permit.

    I was going to say the same thing as kpw.... it's really going to depend on the county your applying in. I just got my NR PA permit....mailed it out on March 10th and rec'd it in the mail on March 21st. Pretty quick.... that was as per the website in Centre County.

    Just be happy your not in NY. I got my permit in 3 months, but one of my friends waited a year and a half before his permit was granted.

    My PA LTCF

    After waiting 2 days for Abington Twp regional police check card to be signed and picked up (week after Christmas), I just shot up PA Turnpike to Montgomery County courthouse in Norristown and waited 15-20 minutes for renewal photo card to be issued.
