Thread: Non Resident CCW Turn Around Time

  1. I sent them an e-mail on June 3, 2013 and received this in response:

    "Unable to confirm. Receiving approximately 800 applications daily. Staff are currently processing applications RECEIVED in our unit on APRIL 8"

    Initially, they told me that it would take 75 *business* days.. as in *15* weeks! That's clearly crazy. Is there a law stating how long they have to turn around a non-resident permit?

    I sent mine in on May 14th... hoping to have it by August!

    800 a day is a lot.

    That it is. Still, though, it's no excuse not to process them, especially if there is a legal time limit set. Kansas hired 10 new people to process their flood of applications. Arizona should do the same.

    They'd have to figure out whose friend of family member would get the plum job. That takes time.

  6. Well, my wife got hers in the mail late last week. I'm still waiting on mine.

    Luckily we don't need one to carry here, but you'll get it.

  8. Just received my non resident AZ CWP. Originally sent it to AZ in May. At the time, the AZDPS advised me in an email, that it process would take 75 days. Actual time was a little less.

    Which is good. Much better to advertise a longer time, and get it done sooner, that to advertise a shorter time, but take longer.

  9. Well, I finally got my permit in the mail today. Almost 3 months to the day. I called them last week to let them know that we were moving soon and would need to change our address. The woman I spoke with was very nice. She told me that she could see what was holding it up and get it in the mail to me. Apparently it has either slowed down there or they've hired a lot of people because a month ago I couldn't even get someone to answer the phone.

  10. Just an update.....
    Mailed Application 4/19/2013
    Received at AZDPS 4/22/2013
    Entered into AZDPS system 6/17/2013
    Still waiting....as of 11/21/2013
    I called and was told they are working on applications entered on 6/14/2013, so I should only have another week or so wait.... but I have been told so many differing stories from these people that until I actually see my permit in my mailbox I don't believe a word they say...

  11. The AZ DPS folks must be waiting on some information from your home state or from the feds because I sent my application in on the week of September 23, 2013 and they printed the letter included with my permit on October 2 and mailed it on October 3 so it only took a little over a week total. This is the first CCW permit I've ever applied for but there are a couple of things that might make me unusual. First, I've lived in AZ most of my life with only a couple of years located in CA or in England. The second circumstance is that I have a security clearance and have had one for most of my adult life, but I don't know if that has any bearing on my background check here in AZ or not. Now if you live in an anti-gun state, your state may be holding up the background investigation because I think the AZ DPS folks are probably processing these CCWs as fast as they are able to given the information that they require from wherever they are getting it from. They are obviously not that busy if my permit came so quickly and entirely within the time you've been waiting.
