    Does Bloomberg have a vacation home in Erie county by any chance? Only kidding, We have it pretty tough also hear on Long Island. When i got mine back in 1989 it took almost a year. Last summer my wife finally went for it. I think she got it in 4 months.

    So i think generally nationwide most states are playing ball a little fairer. Good luck, i know how it feels like forever. Youll have it and be shooting in no time

    Thank you for the info, no problems with record clean one The only problem is the rough neighborhood LOL I think i will stick to the shotgun instead. Rather them than my family or me

    Congrats!

    Be happy, it is for life - no need to renew every 3-6 years like other states.

  9. oh wow thats not bad? i just sent in my reference letters in on friday so lets hope its not to much longer, i want it for my birthday in the end up april, but i think its a long shot

  10. We keep getting more and more of our students coming back and telling us that their Erie County permit letters were issued in less then 4 months. This seems to be a trend that has been steady lately.

    update

    jan 2010: turned in application
    feb 11 2011: all references contacted
    march 28 2011: nothing yet

    Does anyone know how long it usually takes from "all references contacted" to the "come meet the judge letter"?
