Chas.


I received mine in 10 days. All documents received email on the 20th, license in hand on the 30th. And that included a Sat. and Sun. I haven't seen anyone else report a quicker processing time.
This is unusual for me. I usually fall in the Murphy's Law line. I will go to replace the brakes on my truck thinking should be pretty simple, 30mins tops. 2hrs later... :mad5

DPS site shows no change in status but they just got everything so hopefully that will change today. Will update when something changes.


Update: 1/26/17 - Status finally changed and all that is left is background check under review and print pending completion of application review.


1/27/17 - Background check completed, now its just print pending.


2/2/17 - Changed from print pending to mailed.

2/4/17 - Received in the mail!!!!! :woohoo

In total it took 22 days from taking the class to having plastic in hand. I just turned 21 so thats probably why it was so fast, but I still consider myself lucky it didnt take longer.

I'm waiting for that status now myself, congratulations!
I'm on Print Pending since 2/3/17 so i imagine it will take them a bit to get around to printing and mailing.

I'm trying not to allow my anxiety to get the best of me waiting on the processing of my application to begin.

1/25 Class successfully completed
1/28 Application submitted and paid
1/30 Fingerprint appt complete
1/31 Supporting docs emailed and acknowledged
2/05 BRCC order made :lol:

I suspect that the State has not received my electronic fingerprints at this time since it's only been 5 business days. However, seeing no status is just wearing me out.

I'm a little concerned with my fingerprints because they have worn off a bit after years of making mums and burning myself with the hot glue (I guess). Hopefully they will not be rejected. We'll soon find out!

It's not that big of a deal. My information was submitted electronically on 11/22/16. But my info didn't go into review until 12/6/16.
Sending supporting docs with everything will help you. I didn't submit my supporting docs until like day 33 or so, and then a week later i'm in print pending. So, kick back, relax, get some range time and enjoy.

It took mine a few days (two to four, can't quite remember) to go from Print Pending to Mailed.

The website does not have anything up for me yet.

Fingerprints : Under review

DL or ID : Valid
Citizenship : No documentation required
Passport Photo Holder (Out of State Only) : Received
Photo (Out of State Only) : Received
Proof of Classroom training : Received

License To Carry A Handgun : Print pending completion of application review


No changes. I sent an email through RSD to confirm my fingerprints were okay on 2/6. I have not heard anything back.

Although I was not asked to send in any documents re: arrests, I've seen a lot of posts here where the DPS has come back 60 days later and requested the docs, then restarted the counter. With that in mind, I submitted all of the court docs on 2/7 for a 2007 arrest for a non-disqualifying misdemeanor from when I lived in Georgia. Hopefully that will expedite the process.

I'm thinking my background check is being held up by the fact that I lived in multiple cities in Georgia from 1988 to 2010, and I have moved back and forth between Atlanta and Austin a couple of times since 2010. Plus the aforementioned misdemeanor from college.

Have you seen any updates on the website yet? I figure mine will possibly follow a couple days behind yours.

I am print pending now! If you haven't been arrested you will be quick.
