I dont know how they do it ware you are from. When I got mine I walked in gave them $20, 2 letters of recombination ,proof of employment, and my high school diploma. They gave me some paperwork it took me 5min to fill out then turned it in. 15 min later they called me up to take my picture. 5 min later they gave me my LTC and a paper saying what states recognize a Alabama permit and said see you in a year to renew. In and out about 40 min.

Pretty much the same here in pa. Our permits only have to be renewed every 5 years though

We don't need to go in to renew ours we can mail it in a month in advance if we won't. I would just rather go in so I know it is done.

Don't seem too eager.

Be calm, and polite.

Remember, you are being evaluated as to

whether you are mature and responsible

enough to carry a loaded, concealed

weapon, in an area which more than

likely is anti-2A.

Don't rant or get emotional about gun rights.

Be sure to be well groomed, and wear nice

clothes. (casual is OK, but be somewhat

conservative)

Be positive and upbeat, and try to give the impression that

your life is considerably more than having a CCW.

It will look good if you are gainfully employed, own and drive a

car, and are in some sort of a relationship.

Don't volunteer TMI, answer fully, but be brief.

Remember you want to leave a lasting good impression, and

a dull, less-remembered interview may be better than

a sharp, memorable interview which creates a bad vibe with

your interviewer.

Mine was issued through Philadelphia. Took almost 8 weeks to get approval after my application. My wife had hers issued in Montgomery county and got it within few days.

I pitty your poor blue staters with bad gun laws.

WA is a blue state but other that prohibiting full Autos, it's not to bad. They even exempt CCW HOLDERS from the Gun Free school zones "if your picking up or dropping off your child".
