    It took almost 1 year from the date of application to get my pistol permit and it is only for hunting/target. Next to impossible to get full carry permit right off the bat in NY.

    Aint no carry permits here except for lib politicians, judges and of course the local PD.

    I had to fill out one form, shorter than the "yellow form" to buy a gun. Whole thing took about ten minutes. Live Free or Die.

    Four months in Mississippi, as outlined in our statute.

    Took me 5 minutes in Alabama, when I got my first in 1961. After that until I moved to Mississippi a couple years ago, it was walk in each year, plunk doay the renewal fee and walk out with the renewal.

    Thanks for making me feel better Shooter4. I knew it had to be worse somewhere.

    The first time I applied the city police processed the request in just a couple of days even though I had heard they had been in the habit of dragging the process out quite a bit (the mayor was up for reelection). It took about a month to get it back from the State.

    I renewed twice with the Sheriff when I lived out of the city limits and again it was about a month turnaround with the State.

    Indiana is a "shall issue" state.

    Took 3 months after they got the paperwoek to get mine here in Arkansas. they've gotta make it in 120 days by law.

    Tireman, the state police are supposed to mail you a letter 90 days before it expires. They just miss ya or something?
