Told that the application was approved over a month ago
« on: July 24, 2021, 02:02:43 AM »
I applied for the first time December 1, 2020. I was told over the phone by the Prothonotary's office that the application was approved and in the system, they were even nice enough to provide me the Permit#.  That was at the end of May - beginning of June.  Does anyone know what the next step is and why it takes so long if the application has already been approved and Processed.  This process is all very new to me, Is this normal? Should I expect this when its time for renewal?

The person involved in promptly getting permits issued only works  from 12-1 and takes a one hour lunch break.  Yours is due to be processed by 2023.  Please be patient.

I applied on Dec 8 2020 told the same thing. Someone finally answered the phone on Thursday said all applications for new ccw were froze until August 1 as still working on renewals. Well lets wait and see what the new excuse will be now that it is August 3rd.

As it has been in the past, renewals are processed first. But, what people aren't understanding is, that the more permits that are issued, the more renewals there will be in the future. Hence, the longer it will take to get a first-time permit. The good thing is that when a permit comes up for renewal, as long as you have your renewal application in the system by the proper time, you are still covered on the old permit until it is renewed.
When "newbie" applicants apply, they are impatient, just as the rest of us were when we did our first permit application. The only answer is that the state hire more people to process the applications. But in this Liberal Democrat state, that is highly unlikely, as the Democrats don't want you to have a permit anyhow.

First-time applicant. Today marks 90 days since they cashed my check (New Castle County). None of my references have been called. I'm guessing another 5 months minimum based on the feedback above... Which seems pretty ridiculous.

References are rarely if ever called. They are checked out however and if they have “issues” will be rejected.

Are permits mailed in bulk on specific dates or as they are printed?  Also who can I Message for 1 on 1 pistol training?

Congrats. I applied in April. Guess I’ll be lucky if I have it by the end of the year…
