So I have a question. In Maine the law states: Permit Issued Timeline: A permit shall be issued within 30 days for a resident of 5 or more years, otherwise it shall be issued within 60 days. Source: http://www.usacarry.com/maine_concea...formation.html I am a resident applying for the first time so I fall under the 30days. However, my local PD where I applied said they are getting backed up on applications and it may take 5-6 weeks before I hear back. As I have waited this long (speaking of years in my life) and I would be away at work for four of those weeks I did not press the issue but was nonetheless curious. Could I have used the very law book they provided me to push this issue? Does anyone think it would do any good? Or would it more likely have just put me on their "this guy is a PITA so 'accidentally lose his application'" list? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
