    Charlotte NC permit wait time

    I applied September 15th.
    Notified in the mail of approval yesterday.
    Picked up my CHP this morning.
    So 38 days from application to acceptance in Mecklenburg county.

    If I was thinking I would've gone holster shopping before now.

    Must be nice. I live in Texas. Submitted my app in June, and had to resubmit my photos 3 different times. I'm still waiting on my permit. I applied for a passport at the beginning of this month and already received it. Sad.
    Our kindness may be the most persuasive argument for that which we believe.

    I probably should have added that I had to wait almost three months just to apply and that they told me it would take 90 days from when I applied to get a permit.

    It went like this...
    Take CHP class to get certificate so you can even make an appointment.
    Make appointment to apply
    Wait 76 days to apply on appointment date.
    38 days from application date to approval.

    Soo.....
    115 days from start to finish counting one day to take the CHP class.

    Hang in there ezenbrowntow. It felt like forever to me too.

    That's pretty quick, Surry County is telling folks it may be over the 90 days which it usually takes. I got mine 14 years ago and it was a couple weeks!!

    That's what I like about VA. By law they have 45 days to approve or deny with justification. If not denied they must issue.

    Good news indeed Mike,
    If you are looking for a holster for a certian Sig,dont get discouraged over lack of selection, a holster for a WahlterPPK fits perfectly.
    Now to rub your nose in something...down here it takes less than 2 weeks for the whole process.
    Congrats again...keep training

    Wow - over two months for the appointment?

    I guess that's why the processing was relatively quick - they control the volume by spacing out the appointments. In Johnston county, no appointment is necessary - but we have a lot lower population than you do..

    Pretty good wait time. I have a friend in Cabarrus County that is close to his 90 day wait time. Was told there was a hold up in Raleigh at the SBI. MAKE SURE you don't forget after your 4 years and 8 months get ready for your renewal. Had a buddy that forgot and they made him take the class and all again.
