    That is why I love Alabama...two days! in my county it costs $20/yr for a max of 5 years. In Arkansas, where I last lived, much much much more red tape and more expense. It is amazing how perverted the right to bear arms has become and how much interference/control the government has been able to establish. Background check, references, fee and viola!

    Georgia ran about three weeks for my last one, but it is good for 5 years. WA has similar turn around and also 5 years.

    Virginia cost varies by county. 10 to 50$ for a 5 year license. Got mine in 2 weeks. Only gripe is they don't require a ccw specific course in the training. Which is leading to a lot of Virginia residents getting into trouble because they don't now where they can and can not carrier. If even run into a few that don't now not all state recognizes their ccw . Luckily they dissent get caught.

    WV is one of the most expensive states i have noticed. A $75-100 class is reqired plus $100 for a 5yr license.
    However their reciprocity is tough to beat!

    congrats. you now have been "re"-approved for constitutional rights that were already afforded you. and your state got to make some money (what, like $152.50?) and register you as a firearms owner.

    I paid a hefty sum for mine. Pisses me off though because others shed their blood a long time ago hoping guys like you and me could simply live under the second amendment and that would be the end of it

    Washington is shall issue. I think that's better than some states, but let's be real.
    CC happens... By anyone that wants to.

    Smart states don't try to regulate it.

    Takes a full three mo. in Oklahoma. My first license was for three yrs.
    and the cost was $85 for the license and $50 for the class.

    When I renewed, if I remember correctly, it was about $75 for 10 yrs.
    That was a few yrs. ago. It still took 3 mo. the second time.

    They are pretty strict. They did a full OBI and FBI background check
    with passport photos both times and fingerprints the first time.

    Texas DPS (Dept of Regulatory Services) now has a recording on their CHL line saying they have so many applications it is taking 30 days to even get to the new applications. Then they ask you to call back when it's been 30 days from your initial submission date. Hahaha!! I would be fired before the day was out, if I put that on my voice mail!! Lol.

    I called to check the status of mine on the 29th day. I was told they were getting ready to mail it out.
    I drove to pick it up instead of waiting for the mail to deliver it.
    It turned out that it was approved 2 weeks before i went to get it.
    It was pretty frustrating because i anxiously waited for the maillady to arrive everyday, and here it was just sitting on a desk at the sherrif's office.
