Thread: typical wait

  1. #21
    I'm in Nye County and it took 37 days. My Utah non-res took 4 1/2 months last year, but they've caught up and it takes about 6 weeks now.

    Depends...

    I have been told by a member of the LVMPD CCW Detail that if you're a long time NV resident the process is quicker. This is probably because they don't have to check out of State databases, only the NV Criminal Repository which is basically the State mirror of NCIC. It also helps if you're in a line of work where fingerprinting is required (i.e. school district employee, insurance, CDL with hazmat endorsement, etc.). You'll already have a background check done as a matter of employment or professional license.

    Day 46. Still waiting. Hopefully it arrives soon, as I ordered a new pistol and saving $25 sounds pretty good to me. :)

    In Churchill County, four to six weeks seems to be common. Some have received their permit in less than two weeks.

    Bear in mind, however, the law allows up to 120 days.

    If a sheriff exceeds 120 days, he is violating the state law. Sadly, however, there is no penalty proscribed in the law if a sheriff exceeds 120 days. One would have to go to court, I presume.

    Also note, not every county sheriff issues a new replacement permit when you add a new/different firearm. One can qualify with, and have an infinite number of firearms listed on one's permit. And, obviously, there is not sufficient room on the reverse side of the permit to list a large number of firearms by make/model/caliber. Our sheriff simply places the new/added firearm qualification form to your file - he does NOT issue a new replacement permit.

    On that note, I learned that at least one sheriff limited the number of firearms with which you can qualify and have added to your permit. I do not know if he (or other) sheriffs is/are continuing this unlawful practice. By NV law, there is NO limit on the number of firearms with which you can quality. If your sheriff is limiting the number, you should take action to ensure he conforms with the law.

    Got it on day 50. I am very pleased.

    And I look really angry in every ID photo I've ever taken.

    The lady at the desk told me that the initial CCW permit would take about 60 days.

    I applied Feb. 11 '08 and received my card yesterday March 28 '08. Now I can start buying more rifles:icon_biggrin: without having to pay for the back ground check.

    First, let me say Hi to everyone here!

    I am a member on another message board, and they seem to be having forum problems, so I went looking for other places to read and write.....

    I do not really think it matters if you have had background checks done recently. I am a veteran, federal government employee and a federal law enforcement dispatcher.

    I submitted my application to Pershing County on March 17, 2008 and it still has not arrived.

    Now, it seems that Pershing is having trouble with their fingerprint machine that (for those that are on the other board, Sheriff Skinner did talk with me!!!) are beyond their control.

    The Sheriff researched the machine problem, and called me back to explain what was happening.

    It is a software problem that even the software provider cannot seem to identify.

    He and I both agreed that we understood the 120 day "limit". After that he told me that he had my application in front of him, and said that if the prints do not come back by day 120, he was still going to issue the permit to me anyway.

    I am not happy about the wait, but I am bound (as is he) by the rules, and I know that the only thing standing between me and my permit now is 36 days or my prints coming back.

    STILL MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT I HAD (or did not have) IN MARYLAND!

    Now, for some interesting things you all may or may not know.....

    It only takes at worst, 10 minutes for your background check to come back from NCIC. 10 minutes is the limit placed on ANY police agency (including the FBI) by the FBI. If it takes longer, a PHONE CALL MUST BE MADE TO THE REQUESTER FROM THE PROVIDER or you are subjected to loosing your NCIC privileges.

    If your finger prints are on file, it should take only 1 day to confirm them with your record. Your prints are coded at the FBI, and that code comes back with your NCIC check.

    So, IMOH, any waiting period beyond 24 hours is to long.

    This is how it works in NV

    It does because in NV we have the Nevada Criminal Repository.

    The way background checks are done in Nevada that are originated by a Nevada or a political subdivision thereof is that a copy of the fingerprints or background check results are kept in the NV Criminal Repository which is mandated by the NV DPS Records and Technology Division then another copy is forward to the FBI.

    If the results of the background check can be satisfied by the results of the Nevada Criminal Repository then the requesting agency uses that along with forwarding the request to the FBI. If the cached background check in the NV Criminal Repository is recent, the requesting agency uses that.

    NV CFPs are different as there is a statutory requirement per NRS 202.366 that the requests be forwarded to the FBI and not be relied strictly upon the NV Criminal Repository. A similar process is done for NV NICS checks. The $25 NICS check fee pays for the NV Criminal Respository. The NICS check fee increase from $15 to $25 was to upgrade that system.

    Some sheriffs have, however, used the repository alone to issue temporary CFPs. I also know that various State and local governments use the initial repository results such as the NV Dept of Education (not surprising since we have a teaching shortage in Clark County). A friend of mine who maintains a Henderson business license did not have her fingerprints run because of a recent background check done by the State Department of Insurance and the State Department of Education for her teaching license. The background check results were cached in the Nevada Criminal Respository. The City of Henderson pocketed the fingerprint fee for her business license and never processed her fingerprint card. If Nevada or a political subdivision thereof can get away with not forwarding the request to the FBI and pocket the fingerprint processing fee, they will do it.

    NV Sheriffs use to do this earlier when we went "shall issue" which caused the NICS exemption to be revoked by BATFE a few years ago when they did an audit of the background check process. The NV legislature fixed it by making it a statutory requirement that all background checks for NV CFPs be forwarding to the FBI.

    According to an interview I saw on a local TV station, BATF is again revoking the NICS exemption effective July 1, 2008.
    Check with your local gun dealer, he should have a copy of the notice.
    The more I practice, the 'luckier' I get!
