    Does the weekend count as days while waiting on your ccw license? When they say 45 days do I count the weekend?

    When they say 45 days that's usually just a rough estimate. They told me 45 days here in VA and I got it within 3 weeks.

    Its hard to say, they told me 4 weeks and I had it in 45 days including weekends, but I did check the mail every day after about 2 weeks hoping for the best

    Weekends rarely count when talking about a government mandated waiting period. Jail time is about the only time weekends are counted.

    You would have to tell us what state you are talking about in order to provide any answer with a reasonable chance of being accurate.

    Was this question real? How about holidays? What if it is leap year? Shall I go on? We are talking "government"--time estimates mean "we have no darn idea and will get to it whenever". Cost estimates mean "triple our number and you are probably getting close". Federal government cost estimates mean "multiply our number by 10 or 20 and you are getting close".

    I'm not sure where you got your 45 days from. State law gives them 120 days to issue the license:

    45-9-101. License to carry concealed pistol or revolver.

    "(c) The Department of Public Safety shall, within one hundred twenty (120) days after the date of receipt of the items listed in subsection (5) of this section:"

    Without digging too deep into Mississippi law and court procedures to verify; it is very common in law for periods of 10 days or less to include only working days, so 10 days equates to two full calendar weeks, with holidays adding on to the time required. In general, in law, time periods of greater than 10 days is meant to include holidays and weekends. 30 days generally means 30 consecutive calendar days, regardless of holidays and weekends. In Wyoming, for instance, the 10 days definition is found in the Wyoming State Court Rules.

    We have no way of knowing what the person who said "45 days" meant because that was, apparently, their own personal opinion subject to their own personal interpretation.
