    Hey, does anyone else live in Oregon and/or Clackamas County and already have your permit. I applied for mine 31 days ago and haven't heard anything or received my permit. Does it always take so long. As far as I know there would be no reason for them to deny me. Anyone else's take 4+ weeks? The woman that processed my app told me it would be mailed to me in 2 weeks. But she did say it could take up to 45 days. Anyhow, any input on this would be appreciated. I'm tired of checking my mailbox every day thinking it just might be in there!

    I don't live there, but I'd say give it more time. Mine took a couple months to come.

    Yes, just have patience my friend. Most shall issue states have quite a wait. MS claims the wait to be 4-8 weeks in some cases. Everyone I know with one has gotten lucky and had them in hand in about 3 weeks.

    But just have patience.

    Thanks for the input. I'll be patient. My only friend that carries in the same county as I do is one lucky SOB. The woman who processes the applications was sick the day he went in for his appointment. The sheriff that signs off on all the applications was filling in for her. He handed my buddy his permit on the spot! So I have no frame of referrence.

    In oklahoma the wait can be up to 3 months long, i know that some states its sooner. Patience isnt one of my virtues either, you will get it pretty soon.

    In my state you apply with the nearest Highway patrol place, mine was in Batesville. There's not many of them in this state that do it, but my point is that here you don't even go through the county.

    As far as I know (and please someone correct me if I'm wrong, ccw is not something I enjoy being wrong on) but west Virginia has a two week wait time
