Called DRS again today and was told mine was mailed Monday 12/19... Never updated online though. Still says print pending, and as of right now, still no plastic. Hopefully in the mail tomorrow evening.

I get a feeling they do this frequently. When mine changed to mailed I received it two days later. I know that my post office didn't get it to me that quick since it takes a week for a letter to get from one side of my town to the other. I think they mail the cards out and then update the status a few days later so people dont start calling/emailing them wanting to know why it's taking so long to get there.

99.9% of the time yes. Although I have heard occasions where something along the way warranted a second look. Maybe rechecking fingerprints or the background check. However, based upon what I've read on this forum I do believe you're just a couple weeks away from either in the mail or plastic in hand.

Wish I knew the secret of what makes some applications go so fast, and others take so dang long! (still watching grass grow, waiting).

DPS says Merry Christmas a day early to you. Congrats! Nice to know we have one more law abiding citizen with a gun.

Dont't feel bad. I have been under review since the second week of December. I called DPS today and ask them why is it taking so long. I am a federal employee and cleared a Dept of Homeland Security background check and an agency background check just 2 weeks ago and my LTC documents were submitted the second week of November .....Go figure!!!!! :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

I'm still waiting too, mine was electronically filed 11/22, but DPS said it was ready for review 12/6, so now 12/28 no update on the website. BUT, i'm sure all the holidays in between have slowed things down a bit. I do check every day even though i really dont expect things to update soon. Maybe by January something! I'm also a state employee, you'd think that would make it easier. Guess not. :???:
