    I agree; hasn’t always been the case. in fact, on a couple of ‘Texas’ gun forums, they used to have a dedicated thread that participants used to track and post their response times. Even the “official” Texas DPS website had a license progress “status page” you could go to, in order to see where in the process your application was. Wasn’t uncommon for it to take three to four months.

    Maybe was just a coincidence, but I noticed, after the constitutional carry {i.e., “no license” required} folks began making their voices heard at the state level, the DPS licensing process response time radically improved!

    DPS staffed up significantly. They got tired of hearing from state reps about the slow process. They processed 350k applications last year and about 5% of the adult population has a CHL. Lots of activity going through that department.

    Missouri is a constitutional carry state with no permit required, but I have maintained my permit for out-of-state carry. Renewed for another five years today. Permits are issued by the respective county sheriff in the county where you live. No non-resident permits are allowed. It took me about 20 minutes today, including 10 minutes for the permit printing/lamination machine to warm up as I was the first person at 10:30 am.

    PA 45 days for resident apps and renewals. Out of state applications takes three hours.
    One more step and it's on!
