    That's unacceptale IMHO. A permit should be issued within 30 days in most cases.

    As you know, SC is also a 90-day state. And for most of us it took about 90 days. liquidr is in NC, so there is nothing surprising about his wait so far. The employees working on these have three months to get them off their desks, with no reason to do them sooner. So while 30 days is a nice target number (got my Florida permit in 8 days), 90 days or less is perfectly acceptable when a state law sets that as the target. Could try to change the law. :-)
    Just my 2 pennies.

    I hear you Islander, but I still think with computerized records that are available today, these processes should take a lot less time.

    Background checks are instant these days and so are most health mental records. We should be getting permits handed to us the same day we apply.

    Should for sure, and would be nice. But if you send in a paper application (which I believe is required for 100% of states that issue), somebody needs to type or scan that info into a computer. And if they have 90 days to do so, and no reward for doing it early...just sayin.

    The permit process (at least in Iredell County) was not a big deal...$5 per permit and a 15 minute wait for the paperwork. You can request several at one time...so don't wait for the CCL to purchase that handgun.

    No experience with the NC "wait" process as I chose to go the FL route...primarily because I felt insulted by the need to attend a "mandated" course for my guaranteed 2nd Amendment right. Instead, the State of Florida accepted my Military DD214 as acceptable skills and qualification (being an old guy, my many annual qualifications were achieved with the good old M1911A!). Now before someone starts crying that I'm not knowledgeable with NC law, I also ordered (For about $12 total, I believe) the NC Qualification Course handbook and Instructor's Manual from the NC Dept of Justice. I took the written Knowledge test and passed 100%. As far as the range qualification, I have sufficient paper targets to satisfy accuracy requirements for anyone's benefit.



    I had my FL CCW in my hands within 18 days. I will admit that the FL route does not allow me to carry in SC at present so I may still acquire a NC CCW in the future

    I am interested in knowing the answer, did you see if your FL non res permit is good in NC as a resident of NC with out a NC carry permit? I know NC accepts FL non res but does it accept it from their own residents I guess would be a way to put it. I know for a fact GA and TN dont (those are the states I really study the law on) I also have heard others talking that most states are that way. I am not trying to be smart or say anything bad about the way you went about it but just want to make sure a veteran does not get screwed on a technicality.
