    I got my permit in 2008 when I lived in Orchard Park. It too about 15 months to get it. My friend in Cheektowaga applied for his at the same time and his took even longer - around 18 months I think.

    City of Buffalo.

    Submitted all paperwork in January 2011.

    Received phone call background check from BPD Lieutenant. After asking me the same questions that were on the application, she told me that my references would be contacted "shortly". This happened in September 2011.

    References received telephone interviews in October 2011.

    Received my permit letter in December 2011.

    Time it took to be contacted: 8 months.
    Time it took references to be contacted: 9 months.
    Total processing time: 10 months and 14 days.

    Nothing was done via mail.
