As for me, I am 90 days and still "Processing Application".. part of this was my fault in that I did not see the letter they sent me requesting proof of citizenship (took me about 5 days to notice it)... but uggg.... this is frustrating... Congrats to all of you who have received your plastic!!!

Glad to see some folks getting their license. Little depressing knowing I'm in Harris county and you know how efficient they are. I'll just sit here waiting. I now understand the term " Moving at the speed of Goverment. "

Mine went active today... right at 90 days after submitting a renewal. Both of mine have taken twice the allowed time.

Awaiting the mailman now.

Well, today will be my 99th day of waiting since I mailed everything off. No letters concerning bad fingerprints or pictures, etc... I'm just going to continue waiting patiently. I heard through the grapevine that a good deal of faulty licenses came back from the printing company. Maybe I was in that batch, maybe not. That was around the 27th of May I heard that, and I also heard it was going to take 2-3 weeks to square the problem away. Anyhow, I've got my Kahr P9 ready for summer carry along with my High Noon holster and a box of Hornady Critical Defense for when it gets here. "Processing Application" is what I see every day. Ho hum. I'm starting to get antsy and can't wait 'til it arrives. :drool:

Plastic in Hand!!!! :woohoo


I have heard some say there is not glowing light, no music, nothing. I'm here to tell you thats wrong!

Hoping today was the day I kept myself busy waiting for the mailman. Ok I slept until noon. When I awoke my mail box had a distinct glow to it. As I ran down stairs and out the front the bricks glowed like a pot of gold. I knew this was the day, granted there is not a cloud in the sky and its 95 degrees. I put on my polorized sunglasses and proceeded to open the mail box. The handle was hard to find in the glowing light. As I lowered the door I could here what souned like party music. It was faint but was there. Could not make out the words over all my neighbors lawn mowers. digging threw piles of the wifes catalogs and some bills there it was, almost blinding. I ripped it open and all of sudden a silence, and the light was gone. One little piece of plastic stuck in a peice of thick paper. I will say that it is the best piece of 3 cent plastic I have ever seen! :lol:

For all those waiting it will come but waiting SUCKS!
