    Don't live there but never heard of taking that long anywhere.

    I just took the test yesterday Jan 14 for my CWP In Va. Filled out the permit request. Sent an email to the Circuit Court to ask what forms of payment they accept. Doesn't sound like there will be much delay here. I'm amazed at how cheap it is :)

    Here is their reply:

    ===
    The cost is $15.00 we take cash, check or credit card 4% charge. Need copy of drivers license, copy of certification and the application fill out just questions 1 to 9 do not sign the application until we give you the Oath. Hope to see you soon.

    I know they were overwhelmed last year, but not that much! Have you tried calling? I would have called awhile ago. Ours took a few weeks, but we did that before the scare!!

    I live in SW Indiana. Applied for my permit during first week of November 2013 & received it exactly 2 weeks later. I've been told they don't like being called & may result in a longer wait. Best regards.

    Yes I have called but they usually send me to a voice recording or tell me to go to the state police headquarters and talk to them. I live 2 1/2 hours from there so that's kinda out of the question. I was approved by my county on feb 28 last year. That's why I was wondering if anyone else has been through this so I could try there approach.

    The fact you're getting a voice message tells you, you're not alone. I got mine a while ago. If I were in your shoes today, I'd be on my way to State Police. Ask politely to check the files, use your charm, don't back down until you get an answer. You will.

    The reason I suggested starting locally is because if the local never processed it to the State Police, the State will not process anything. If done correctly locally & you have submitted finger prints, then seems the State us the holdup. Good luck.

    Thanks everyone for your advice. Locally they have sent it to the state. I know that because I talked to the cop that approved it and sent it out. My money order was cashed on March 1st. So my guess is it's all in the states hands. I think I'm going to have to plan a trip to Indy.

    A friend of mine is in the same situation in In. Just last week he checked with his local P.D. They had approved and sent it to the state almost a year ago. They gave him a different phone number to ISP that actually let him speak to someone.

    Turned out one of the registration numbers (whatever that is) had been entered wrong. I guess they just put it aside and weren't going to notify him. Anyway they are straightening it out now. Might ask the locals what number they use when they call.

    I am so envious! Here in Minnesota, you need a class ($75-100) and then $100 in my county for the permit

    how much do the other constitutional rights costs? Is there a fee to enjoy the 1st amendment, or any of the others??????

    Electronic records are like global warming. Feel hot to the creators but nobody else.

    2400,

    Being retired LE from Indiana after almost 30 years. I have never heard of such a thing! Who ever is referring you to the Indiana State Police is giving you bad information and worse does not know Indiana Law.
    The law says you must go to the jurisdiction you reside in to apply for your Concealed Carry or Hunting and Target Practice Permit forms in Indiana. What that means is if you live in the city or town you must go to the Chief or his or her designee to apply for your permit. If you live in the County in Indiana you must go to the Sheriff's Office to get one. The Indiana State Police have nothing to do with this portion of it until running your final records check prior to issuance. And the State of Indiana issues the permit. I would advise you to go to the *Sheriff's Department direct in person. And ask to speak with someone who is responsible for gun permits. And while there at least make an appointment! I have never heard of any taking over 120 days which is the longest I can remember. And it was because the applicant had a similar name and information to a person who had a lengthy record. If you have never been involved in a crime, battery, or other serious charge there is "absolutely no reason" for this long period. So now you are informed on the Indiana Law go for it! Go to the Sheriff's Office since it sounds like you live in the County! And keep us informed!;)

    You know, I called State Police once. A woman explained that there was a backlog and gave an estimated time frame. It was soon after 9/11. I used to renew every 4 years back then.

    One can expect this behavior from state by looking at who gets elected from there. No offense.

    Good question about 2A. They make us pay for the background checks, fingerprinting and all. But I think if you push them back, it's gonna be a wack-a-mole. They will find a way to tax you instead. It just might be better to have this done for everyone to see, over the counter than under the table.
