Processing Questions

#1

Post by daygo140 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 10:00 am

3/5 - Application Submitted
3/6 - Application Received
3/8 - LTC-100 Submitted
3/9 - LTC-100 Received
3/9 - Fingerprints Submitted
3/11 - Fingerprints Received
3/12 - Background Check Under Review, Print Pending Completion of Application Review. (All green except Background Check and LIcense to Carry a Handgun.)

I have no issues or no history, just maybe a few traffic ticket years ago maybe. I don’t even drink alcohol let alone abuse it or anything so I should be fine. So I’m guessing the status should turn green soon.

Two questions:

When the Background Check’s status turns green, does that explicitly mean that you will receive a LTC?

If any additional paperwork is needed and they mail you requesting it, is it indicated on the status page at this point?

my BG check stayed under review for 12 days with nothing that would impede progress... there's 21 points that the BG check goes thru and it takes awhile. ive heard people getting their plastic in hand after 11 days and some that waited almost 60 days to get theirs... i think it all depends on where you are in the queue when you submit your application.
To answer your questions, if they require additional info they'll mail you. I don' think the status is updated on their site. From my understanding if your backgroundcheck passes then yes you will receive your LTC but do NOT carry until you have the plastic in hand.

So once the Background Check is marked green I’m good to go? If a letter would be sent it would stay yellow?

I should be a quick one. I just bought my gun at Acedemy and that check was 10-15 minutes if that. There were some guys at work had to wait 72 hours or more.

I should be on the quick side because I have a clean bill of citizenship. A few members here had everything turn green except the check one day and the next day it all turned green. I’m hoping for this scenario. I’m super excited. I love my holdster I just got too and want to do my Wally Walk.

i had clear everything only lived in 1 address my entire life and it took 12 days for the BG check. according to sources here they request info from counties that you've lived/worked and if your county(s) are slow to respond it can lengthen your BG check. also buying a gun vs getting a LTC is completely different BG check.

I wonder how some had it complete in less than 24 hours. Either way though, once the Background Check is marked green I’m good to go? If a letter would be sent it would stay yellow?

When it arrives in the mail.
It is my understanding, when everything is good to go, that the county checks are the ones that slow the process down and they check all counties that you have lived or worked in for the last 5 years. Some county sheriffs depts. are slow to respond, this could depend on workload or politics.

On the Print Pending, it depends on the where you are in the printing queue, I was told they print in batches and if you are first in the batch, you would have to wait for the batch to fill. I have no idea how many are in a batch or how often the average batch fills.

Well I’m past having to wait for county checks being that my background check is complete. So I don’t have to consider the first paragraph.

Since I’m in print pending status, the second paragraph applies to me. Let’s hope I’m in the batch to get printed very soon!! Thank you so much for your input fellow Texan!

Another thing that others have noted here before, sometimes the web updates are behind what has actually been completed. So, it's possible that when you see that it has been printed it may already have been mailed.

Many have reported receiving their LTC while it was still saying Print Pending. I don't remember if the CHL notified Print pending. I never got the opportunity to be teased like so many have, they did not have internet applications when I received mine. We requested an application by snail mail and they sent a packet that could only be used by the named applicant. All communication was done by snail mail.
