    Got My Texas PIN Number

    Got my Texas PIN number in the mail today.

    It was issued last Tuesday which would make it day 31 (business days) since sending in the packet. I live in Pearland, Brazoria County.

    Yee haw! I think I'll take my DPS letter and do a practise walk thru Wally World!

    They received my application April 30. I got my pin via the web on the 11th of May saying I was approved... Not even 2 weeks! Now I wonder how long to get the piece of plastic in the mail, cuz we ain't real till then.
    Do you have any ideas on how long they are really taking?
    You know a virus got their drivers license re-issuance computers down and it's taking 4 months to get a drivers license. I hope CHL licenses aren't on the same system.
    Anyone out there know?

    I've been hearing from 60-100 days on the actual permit.
    Haven't heard about pc problems.

    Slade is correct it has been taking 60 to 90 days, assuming they don't send back due to some error in the app. Good luck y'all...

    It's not the actual permit. In Texas, we get the PIN number and then the permit around 60 days later.

    Still, it's worth celebrating.

    I hope you don't mean, with your handgun but only a simple WWW.

    Congrats on the PIN, almost there.

    No handgun. Just my PIN number in my brand new leather Tagua holster.

    What do you all think??
    They received my app April 30.
    I got my pin via email and logged into the system on May 11.
    After logging in, I had this message posted for me:
    "Application Completed - license issued or certificate active"
    So I'm guessing everything is done, approved and accepted by the State. So now all they have to do is create and mail the actual license. And that takes 60 to 100 days per an earlier post. Right??

    I would think you'd be getting it in the mail any day if that's what the website said.
    Maybe give them a call?

    Well now--that's what it said when my CHL was actually issued. Call on Monday for sure, a 12 day turnaround is exceptional for this state.

    Glad to hear it though! Mine took 3+ months last year.

    Guys, getting the PIN does not mean that your application is approved. That is simply your way of being able to check on the status online.
