CCW Time from Application to Receipt

Recommended Posts

I’m not sure how long it usually takes to get your CCW Permit, or if this whole current gun craze has any bearing...

I applied for my Enhanced Carry Permit in Franklin on 10/07 and had to wait until the next day for finger printing.

My permit arrived in the mail on 10/23; which I thought was pretty quick!

I’m curious if this is better or worse than normal?

Now just waiting on my Tier 1 holster to arrive so I can begin to carry. Thanks for the engagements on here, I’ve benefited from my short time here already!

That’s about pretty average over the last number of years. It’s way better than when I got mine and the wait was over a month. Some of the cats here who’ve been carrying for a couple decades will tell you stories of having to wait in excess of 3 months.

Wow, I consider myself blessed then!

My father in law waited over six months for his in New York. He’s looking forward to joining our community here very soon... Grateful to be in TN!!

I waited about 7 months in NY. Got my TN 5 years ago in 10 days. Process in TN was much more complete in making sure I at least knew how to handle a handgun and shoot it, not that it was that great, but NY had none, just bureaucracy and stalling, not even basic laws of the state.

I would highly recommend getting further handgun training if you're new to shooting. I took two NRA handgun courses, basic handgun and a self defence course and the were excellent starting points.
