Thread: Current non-res turnaround time

  1. Current non-res turnaround time

    It took me about 8 weeks to get mine back.

    No more "all lawful purposes", now it says "RESTRICTION: NONE"

    Congrats! I don't get it. It is way easier for Non-resident permits. Residents jump through way more hoops and get knocked down. Gotta love PRMA...haha I so need to move.

    I just received my application today for non-res MA permit. They've changed the app and now make you appear in person in Chelsea. Great.

    The whole process has changed starting August 1st. Now you will no longer have to obtain fingerprints from local police.

    Applicants no longer need to get passport size photograph

    An LTC will be issued on a wallet sized, digitally printed plastic card

    And you have to appear in person.

    Has MA always required proof of a home state license? I live in Maryland where we can't get one (even though it is technically "may issue") Am I SOL when it comes to MA? I have permits from VA, FL and NH. Currently doing CT

    I just got mine renewed a couple weeks back and nothing was mentioned to me about going in person for future renewals. I'm sure though, when I renew I'll get the "new" appl.
    By mailing in the appl., it usually took like 2 months or a little longer. I'm wondering how long it will take now the new way? This is all done by appointment also, correct??
    Maybe I'll bring up an application online to see what it looks like. Thnx. for the info.!

    capo, "from living far away and having to have to go in person"........like You have said before, that's MA. again trying to deter people from getting their license's. They will do anything to piss people off to the point that it'll be not worht it to get a license in MA. Just make things more difficult.

    Itís crazy how they do things here. For a resident we need to do the following...

    1) Pick up an application from local PD
    2) Take a class that the state will recognize as actually being a "class"
    3) Make an appointment with your local PD for a meeting, more like an interrogation if you ask me...
    4) Pay $100 to the PD, which is non-refundable even if you don't get your permit
    5) Wait a long time to see if you even get a permit (it may not even be the one you applied for because they can deny you or knock you down as the chief sees fit)
    6) Go to purchase a firearm....get back round checked alllllllll over again....and then get your firearm

    And they want to make this tougher???????

    Yeahhhhhhhhh I highly doubt a criminal follows that process or even is aware that there is a process....keep thinking this works PRMA...

    From what I saw on here in USACarry under MA., a resident whether it is New or Renewal must take it (completed application) to your local police dept., where as a Non-Res., must now CALL the Fire Arms Bureau first.
    For a MA. Res., you do not mail application to the Fire Arms Bureau in Chelsea but instead mail it to your local police dept.??
