Went today to drop off my app.

Got there about 8:15 AM and the parking lot was, for the most part, empty. Thought, great, this is going to be quick. It was for the most part but not as quick as I had hoped.

Went in and told them I was there for a CCW. They gave me a 300 number and i went in and had a seat in the lobby.

There were 7 people ahead of me (I could tell because of the numbers).

When your number is called, you go over to the side windows. I believe window number 4 is the CCW window. There was only one window open for CCW's.

After you give them your app and sign the 2 forms in front of them, you give them your blue cards, Drivers license, and money order/cashiers check. They create a file for you, get your receipt and then fill out a sheet that you then take with you to window number 6. You don't wait to be called, you just walk up to it.

So you go up there and they ask for your ID and number again. They also ask if you have had a work card or CCW before. I had a work card so they were able to pull up my SCOPE. He went off that, wrote some stuff on the sheet they gave me at the first window then scanned my thumb (I assume as a verification measure). Then they told me to go to the back and have a seat and wait for them to call my number for the fingerprinting and photo.

After waiting back there for about 20 minutes, they called me up, asked for my ID again and asked to see my hands. Then they scanned my fingerprints and told me to have a seat for the photos. I waited another 10 minutes and then they called me up for my photo. I had to show my ID again and then had to stand behind their podium and look ahead at the camera. After they take the picture, you sign on the pad that scand your signature into the computer that will be on your CCW permit card. After that they tell you to go have a seat in the main lobby and wait for your number to be called to window number 10.

After sitting out there for 20 minutes and counting 13 other people waiting for the same thing, they finally started calling numbers up. They called me, asked for my ID, and told me my card came out okay and that they would send it out after the background comes back clean and that i was free to go. Literally about 20 seconds.

So i ended up getting out of there at 10 AM. Not too bad but not nearly as quick as i thought. The reason is because after you get called to the CCW window, you are in the flow with the rest of the people there for work cards, child care cards, and other stuff. That is where the slow down comes. They only had 2 fingerprint techs working and had 3 fingerprint stations unmanned out of 5. One person taking photos as there is only one place for the photos. We'll see how long it takes for the cards to come.

Wow, that's a long process... I thought the half hour and then 2 and half week wait in VA was crappy. I guess that's nothing compared to buying a handgun in NJ.

I'll get to go through it once I get out there in the spring.

That's correct. I went in at 9am and left around 1130am. They had one window open for CCW and all the fingerprint stations going at the time. Once I got past the first window, it was down hill from there. By the way, I received my CFP in 5 weeks.

Definitely set aside 2 - 3 hours for your CCP at the Metro substation. It is frustrating to only have one or two windows open for this service! My permit then took over 60 days to arrive, but I was told there would be a delay due to the fact that my birthdate was initially put in incorrectly by the person at the first window.

Adding a weapon to your permit is a shorter wait because they don't need you to go back through fingerprinting and photos. You just make one stop at the CCW window and the revised permit is sent (got mine in 10 days).

At my CCW class yesterday the instructor said that the current wait is only 32 days for the initial issue.
I'll turn in the forms tomorrow tomorrow (Monday) and let you know if Metro tells me anything about the time involved. When the CCW does arrive, I'll post the time it took.
From the sounds of things, maybe it's a good idea to take a good book along for the wait at Metro.

UPDATE!
After arriving before the 8AM opening, the longest wait was spent, well, waiting.
Had all the same things happen as did Ocyruscyn, but the total time spent inside from entry to exit, was only 1 hour, nine minutes.
And this was today, Monday. I had expected to wait much longer.
Very nice surprise!

Well, you guys lucked out, I had to stop in the LVMPD at my lunch break, probably close to 2:00 PM, and the place was packed, although there were only maybe 5-8 people in front of me for CCW; there were all kinds of other people there. I spent probably an hour waiting to get to the CCW window alone. After that, headed back to the fingerprinting station, and probably waited close to 45 minutes - 1 hour for the finger prints, and then probably another 30 minutes for the photo. After that, i waiting around for another 30 minutes for them to call me up to the window and tell me that everything checked out ok, and that I would be mailed my CCW.

Overall, it took a lot longer that I thought it would, and I ended up being at the LVMPD for about 3 hours.

Ahhh man. . . I just finished up at the LVMPD about a month ago, and I'm finally starting to get anxious about my CCW showing up; and now you broke all those dreams.

Well, at least, I applied for my Utah CCW as well, and they supposedly finish all requests within 60 days (not sure if this applies to out-of-state applicants as well).

I hate to shatter more dreams, but UT out-of-state permits are running about 6 months! They have a "status" here:

http://bci.utah.gov/

I mailed my UT the same day I dropped off my NV permit application. This waiting sucks.

You could have kept this a secret, and let me just keep dreamin'. . .

well it looks like the wonderful CCW detail is falling behind more and more back to their good old usual time of well over 120 days (average was 140-160 days even though state law is 120 days). I'm going on day 48 and nothing. Submitted my paperwork 8/29/07.

When I was at the CCW detail dropping off my paperwork, the guy in the next booth over asked about typical wait times. The lady told him times were getting longer, 60-90 days at least now. She mentioned that they actually had 120 days by statute. I was hoping she was exaggerating on the current times. I guess not. :sad:

Mine took 93 days. Obviously when my renewal comes up in about two years I will apply about 4 months ahead of time so as not to have a lapse between my current card expiring and the new one arriving. I was at the fingerprint/ccw office for about 20 minutes, but my wife works for Metro so I breezed right through...

At least someone saved some time. I'll be doing the same thing when my time comes. I like to keep my gun close by in LV.

Looks like the whole Utah BCI is cruisin' right along on their applications for conceal carry. As of today, at 10:00 AM PST, the websites shows they are processing applications for 9/1/2007.

I think I submitted mine, and got my check via my bank around 9/26, so hopefully they will process my application soon.

They really have picked up the pace.

I mailed (via priority mail) my UT permit the same day I applied for my NV permit, August 17. My UT should be coming soon, I hope.

ETA: I added my new G20 yesterday to my NV permit. I was in and out of the fingerprint bureau in a shocking 10 minutes! A lot better than when I first when in there to get my CCW.

Djees, I received mine in 30 days to be exact earlier this year. I guess the longer waiting period is because more CCW applications.

Will soon have to go back to add a few guns to my CCW.

Speaking of which...when you add weapon(s) to your permit, do you keep the permit or do they take it away until the additions are included?
How long does the process take?
Someone said the charge is about $25/weapon.
I'm in the same boat as you are.

UPDATE!

Permit arrived to day; 71 days from start to finish.
Called Metro for info on additional firearms and was told that I keep the old permit until the new one arrives, pay $25.

No problems, there.

I feel great!

Congrats on your permit!

yes, that info is correct. Don't forget that you first need to qualify with the gun(s) you want to add. The place where I got my CCW charges $20.00.

Discount Firearms charges $10 per pistol (to qualify). Then you have to pay $25 to update your license. It took me 2 1/2 weeks to get the updated one.

That squares with what I was told yesterday at Metro; the fingerpring machine is "...slowing down...or something...", and the add-ons are taking up to four weeks instead of 10-15 business days.
It's OK, with me; just keep carrying the presently listed one until the new permit shows up.

Well. . . I just got my UT license. It looks like my UT license won the race between UT and NV.

Still waiting on my NV CCW. I suppose the good news is now that when I head up to Utah for an upcoming vacation I'll be allowed to carry. I really wish my NV CCW would hurry and show up.

WooHoo!!!

Got my NV CCW finally, right on par with everyone else that recently got theirs, just about 71 days.

I'm still surprised that my UT CCW beat NV CCW to my mailbox.

WOW they really slowed down. When i got mine in april(first time) it was 32 days. Hope when I need to renew they get faster
