Does it take this long in other states?

I got mine in less than a month. They must have been back logged.


Luckily you didn't have to wait until you got your permit, to conceal carry.

In AZ, you don't have to be tested on the range. Infact, I took a 30 second class to get my cert of completion. It took me about 30 seconds to fast forward the video to the end, and open the test page. Took about 2 min to take the test and get 100% on it.

Sent in my cert, and my fingerprint card, and got my permit a couple of weeks later.

But you don't need a permit to conceal carry in AZ-unless you want to conceal carry at a place where alcohol is served.

The only use I have for mine, is buying guns without needing a background check.

Well, Arizona Revised Statutes says so.

N. An applicant shall demonstrate competence with a firearm through any of the following:

1. Completion of any firearms safety or training course or class that is available to the general public, that is offered by a law enforcement agency, a junior college, a college or a private or public institution, academy, organization or firearms training school and that is approved by the department of public safety or that uses instructors who are certified by the national rifle association.

2. Completion of any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the Arizona game and fish department or a similar agency of another state.

3. Completion of any national rifle association firearms safety or training course.

4. Completion of any law enforcement firearms safety or training course or class that is offered for security guards, investigators, special deputies or other divisions or subdivisions of law enforcement or security enforcement and that is approved by the department of public safety.

5. Evidence of current military service or proof of honorable discharge or general discharge under honorable conditions from the United States armed forces.

6. A valid current or expired concealed weapon, firearm or handgun permit or license that is issued by another state or a political subdivision of another state and that has a training or testing requirement for initial issuance.

7. Completion of any governmental police agency firearms training course and qualification to carry a firearm in the course of normal police duties.

8. Completion of any other firearms safety or training course or class that is conducted by a department of public safety approved or national rifle association certified firearms instructor.

This online course, satisfies AZ requirements for a CCW.

No part requires range time.

Someone either lied to you, or was trying to sell you something.

AZ is a shall issue state, and the most Pro 2nd A state in the US. We don't have to do the hokey pokey here.

Now in my lifetime, I have countless hours of range time, but I needed exactly ZERO for my CCW.
