Thread: The OSBI SDA crew is a joke.

    Angry The OSBI SDA crew is a joke.

    How is it that the great OSBI can have such a terrible turn around time for SDA licensing? If there is a huge demand, hire more people. It takes them MORE than the time allowed by statute to get their job done. Mine has taken over 90 days for new and renewal. My wifes initial took over 90 days and we are going on over 100 days for her renewal. Nobody bothered to tell us that there was a problem with hers, just let us continue waiting. So my wife calls them several times and of course they wont answer the phone, it goes straight to a recording like all terrible businesses. She leaves a message, and they wait two days to call her back and tell her that there is someone with a VPO that has the same first and last name as her in the same county so they are waiting to hear back from the sheriffs office. Ummm really? A 2 minute lookup on oscn.net and you can see that the person has a different middle name. I guarantee you it wouldnt take the sheriffs dept, police department, or yes the OSBI 5 minutes to check and verify this if someone called that this person was after them and they had a VPO against them. So why does it take over 100 days for a renewal?? With all the civil unrest that is popping up around the country, this is not a good time for her to not have the meens to protect herself.

    Sorry, I am ranting. But it seems that OSBI needs some bad feedback in at least some forum.

    Just checked and the OSBI is not hiring in the SDA department.

    OSBI = FAIL

    It took 121 days for the OSBI to process my initial application last year. When I got to the 90 day mark, I e-mailed them and got a reply next day. Turns out that they had misplaced my form from the Sheriff's office. After I contacted the local Sheriff, it ONLY took twenty more days to get my permit. I would advise you to use the e-mail address on the OSBI website. After that first initial next day reply, they were responding within a couple of hours.

    I just moved here from Indiana. I have only been waiting 36 days. It is a joke, the state has no statute on how long it should take them. Indiana and other states have a turnaround time of less than 60 days. The state has some backward ass laws also. I am carrying on my Utah and Arizona permits now until it comes in.

    I know I'm not from OK, but this has been going on in many states. With the rush of people that have been wanting to ask permission for a right that should already be granted, the offices that take care of the permission slips are way behind.

    They certainly aren't going to hire more people because most government agencies are broke as it is. Unless of course you would like them to raise your taxes to be able to hire more people to process the permission slips we shouldn't have to get in the first place?

  6. My county was running at capacity BEFORE the tragedy at Newtown, can't imagine what the backlog is now.
    I wonder how much profit LEO agencies make from concealed carry permits? Oregon runs the permits through the county sheriffs offices, who charge about $65 for the application (if memory serves) and $15 to do the finger printing for first time applicants. With the volume of applications they are processing, this has got to add up to some serious cash flow. Might make an interesting economic impact argument for the anti's to chew on...

    Not to mention those of us who get non-resident licenses from other states. I've been waiting on my AZ and Utah permits for almost 30 days so far, don't expect to see them for another month or two.

    Might make an interesting poll, either "How many state CCW permits do you have?" or "What State Permits do you hold"?

    Concerning your UT permit. I got mine about three years ago and back then it took almost the full 90 days. Good luck with your wait in today's time frame.

    And if you want me to start the poll answers, I have my resident PA and my non-resident UT. It gives me about 39 states of reciprocity, but I know things have changed in the last several months and I need to research that again.

    The last Utah class I gave when I lived in Indiana ( December) it was taking about 40 days. I would always call before I gave a class because I knew someone would ask. They are pretty good about it. I know Indiana hired more people to process theirs

  10. I emailed the OSBI about my fingerprints and received a reply in 2 days. Sheriffs department can't make quality prints apparently and I had to have them done again. So I went to the digital place to have them done digitally. Apparently, they can't get it right either because they still haven't received them. It was the Cleveland County Sheriff's office in case you were wandering.

    Ccso is terrible. I don't have much experience with others to accurately compare. But I'm not a fan.
