My Arizona CCW expired this month, so last month I filled out the renewal form and mailed them a cashier’s check.
It’s been a few weeks. No permit.
So I called them today. “We’re currently processing only those applications that came in before February 15,” I was told. “At the start of the year, it seems like EVERYBODY wanted to get a permit. We’re buried in applications.”
This is in a state where a permit is not required for carrying concealed. I have one because it gets me out of the instant background check when I purchase a firearm, and it also lets me carry in several other states (but no longer in Nevada).
I was advised to give them “another couple of weeks” before checking back.
