I sent my paperwork in July 5th. My plastic arrived August 9th.
This was for a new CHL permit.
Definitely pleasantly surprised. :coolgleamA:

Submitted online application on 9/14/2012 and still waiting. DPS site shows they received all my paperwork, but are still "reviewing" I'm getting so impatient.

holy crap that's a long time... do you check it everyday? I have a hunch that the less you log on and check on it, the faster that the process will be... but that's just my hypothesis.

Took CHL class on September 9th / sent paperwork on September 10th / October 8th application being processed pending background review / October 30th background review complete - pending manufacturing / October 31st sent to mailroom / November 1st mailed / November 13th received plastic.

Overall, seemed like a long time but am glad the process is complete.

That's not encouraging. That means I may still have 2 weeks for mine to make it to my mailbox. That would mean they're running close to 8 weeks on renewals. Although I'm not sure new or renewal are processed any different.

42 days from mailbox to mailbox!

10/13 CHL course
10/23 sent documents and fingerprints
11/10 application and documents received, background check under review
11/16 background check completed, manufacturing pending
11/20 mailed
12/4 PLASTIC IN HAND!

I saw the stamp on the letter and they actually didnt even mail it until the 29th... So whoever said that after it says 'mailed' it actually sits in a pile for another week, they were right!

At any rate. FINALLY GOT MY PLASTIC! :woohoo

60 Days mailbox to mailbox.
I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
