Handed in application on 1/13/2012.... Prints taken on 1/14/2012. No references have been contacted yet. Pistol permit office said the application is with Amherst police. Amherst police said 1 detective is in charge of the background checks and that there is a large stack.
Nuch41, I am a permit holder from amherst, The amherst PD is a bit slow but once they start contacting references, they finish it fairly fast. It's a painless process, the detective is a good guy. The time it took from reference check to the letter in hand was 5 long months. Be patient it will be worth the wait.
