Delaware is a may issue state so I did my application work before taking the class so as not to have to spend the $250 for the class if I was rejected. Once I was approved (4 months later) I signed up for the class and had to wait 6 weeks until one was available, the class took 2 weeks and I got the permit 2 days after turning the class paperwork in. Total cost about $400. It was and is worth it.

Here in Colorado you have to make an appointment to apply. So I called the sheriff and they were more than 2 months out on appointments so I took the 1st available.
Took test on 9-06-2012 submitted application at sheriffs office on 11-16-2012 was told it could take 90 days to receive the permit. SO on the outside it could take 5 months start to finish 3 months minimum. Apparently there has been a huge interest in CC in the last few months.

My CCW timeline is in my signature. Took 84 days from when I dropped the app packet off at the post office to when I held the nice new card in my hands. I regret now not keeping the appt at the downtown county office for an in-house app: the best I could get was early Oct, though, and I thought Tally would come through more quickly. Can't complain, I have it now!

From start to finish it took me 5 months and 6 days. That includes actually turning in the application along with finger prints and references ect. Comming from Long Island originaly i find this to be very fast but i now live in upstate New York so that explains the quickness. The fact that im a veteran may have something to do with it as well

90 days here in Vegas after filing your app. Class was given free by a local gun store. The owner is a real great guy. Up until about 9 months ago even the the 36 rds of ammo to qualifie was free. When you figure he runs two 8hr classes a week with about 20 people in each that's alot of money. It's the gun store in Las Vegas where you can shoot full auto belt feed and other fully auto weapons.

My wife and I have had conceal carry permits for over twenty years now. I applied in Nevada before it was a “shall issue” state and was denied. When the law changed, we had to take a class from a state approved instructor including qualifying with up to two handguns at the range. Those two handguns were listed on your permit. It took a few weeks total.

In Oregon, we made an appointment for fingerprints and background check with the State Police and then an appointment with the Sheriff’s office and took our proof of training in. It took a few days total.

We just renewed for the third time last week. They sent us a renewal notice in the mail with the required paperwork. We made an appointment and went in with the completed paperwork. They took our old permits, paperwork, and driver’s license and entered information on the computer. They called us in and took our pictures and then handed us our new Oregon Concealed Handgun License. It took us longer to get through the security screening at the courthouse entrance than getting our new permits.

For my Utah Concealed Firearm Permit, I had to schedule and take a state approved class and mail in the required paperwork and photos. It took about three months to complete the process.

In SC it takes 6-8 weeks. I had to be re-finger printed 3 times so it took me a little while longer.

I wonder how many of you are non-LEO permit holders in CA. I'm former LEO but didn't work there long enough to be officially retired (15 years, I think is what is required). I heard they actually loosened up the CCW permit laws somewhat, but I wonder how that's working in reality.

As far as California, the farther you get from the population centers, the easier it is. Issuance is up to the chief of police, or sheriff. With a few million people in Los Angeles, there are probably 100 permits, but Fresno has over 1,000 with 1/4 of the population.

Anyway, out here in Virginia, my process took 21 days from the time I dropped the application at the courthouse to the day I picked up the permit.

When I first got it about 7 years ago I stopped by the Chester County PA courthouse and dropped off the paperwork, it was in my mailbox the next day. When I renewed it 2 years ago it took about 2 weeks from the time I mailed the renewal form out.
