I just came home from a 2-Day School Safety Instructor's class at the DPS Tactical Training Center (where they train all the LTC instructors), in Florence, TX. They mentioned the typical LTC wait time is less than two weeks. So if there are no complications, you should receive your LTC shortly.

Right around 2 week turnaround for those with no criminal history currently, per my students.

Haha. Back when I got my first CHL, I waited 3-4 months to arrive. My son applied for his just after me and waited 5 months. I am amused when I read posts speaking of wait times these days.
