It seems that the dps is really stepping up their game to issue these licenses, yet every second I don't hold that plastic in my hand I grow impatient. So for those folks that have recently submitted their applications in and are also wanting to see average wait time I will post mine. The only thing I have on my record is some student loans that defaulted but I am in the process of clearing those up. Not gonna lie even though I have read the penal code of elgibilty and I should be cleared I am still nervous. Here are my dates for the application.
07/22/2018- submitted online application $40
07/25/2018- submitted my fingerprints through Identigo after receiving appointment $10
08/11/2018- completed LTC training course(had to wait for an available class) -$95
08/13/2018- email confirmation that documents were received. (The site was down when I originally submitted them so just because I had to be sure, I gave the dps a call and the lady that answered was very polite and laughed reassured me after she pulled up my account that everything was in and all I had to was wait)
08/14/2018- DPS website finally showed application status all green except for a "under review background check" and "print pending"
So hopefully I can add a follow post to this pretty soon letting everyone know I got that plastic in hand. How long has it taken y'all?



08/16/2018-print pending!

08/18/2018- mailed


08/23/18 got that plastic in hand

Well, still sitting on print pending as of 8/24. Hopefully it mails out pretty soon. Seems odd to be held up there.

Nine days from documents received to license in hand. Twenty days from application itself.

7/28/18: Applied Online
7/30/18: Pre-enrolled for fingerprints
8/04/18: Fingerprinted
8/11/18: LTC Class completed.
8/11/18: LTC-100 submitted online
8/13/18: "Documents Received" e-mail from DPS.
8/25/18: All green EXCEPT for Fingerprint (under review), Background Check (under review) and License (Print pending completion of application review)

I do have a couple of "things" from the early 90's and I did submit the info I had on them. None are disqualifying. There is one "thing" that I didn't submit because I don't remember or have any date details and it was dismissed. I gather that may come back to bite me; I'll just have to deal with what ever comes my way.
Interestingly, one of my "things" from the early 90's is a UCW charge for getting caught with a gun in my vehicle. That is legal today but it wasn't then unless you were "travelling" or on your way to or from a gun range. :(

So frustrated...

8/9 - LTC class complete
8/9 - Online application submitted and paid
8/9 - LTC-100 submitted online
8/9 - "Documents Received" email
8/16 - fingerprinted
8/18 - all green except last two (background and print)

... and it's been stuck there ever since.

My husband and I took the class on the same day. He submitted his LTC-100 one day after I submitted mine and he was fingerprinted a full week after me... his LTC is "print pending."

We both have spotless criminal records (not even so much as a speeding ticket), both born in Texas (he grew up out of state, but I've lived here my whole life), lived together for 10 years so our address history is identical... what gives?!

I’ve been at “print pending” since 28 AUG.

It too me a couple extra weeks to get the fingerprints in, due to substandard customer service at our local IdentoGo, but as soon as they hit the DPS system everything including BGC went green.

Hoping to see “mailed” soon, and fully expect a couple extra days for the mail to make it up here to my current (temporary) home in Michigan.

8/9 application submitted

8/xx (a few days later) all green except fingerprints and background check

Still waiting. Sigh. I have a horrible feeling I'm going to have to wait close to the 60 day limit. I'm from California, couple speeding tickets, and a misdemeanor from nine years ago. It's nothing that will disqualify me. I've been purchasing firearms in California with their checks and waiting periods just fine. In fact, it was dismissed and expunged a few years ago. Still, that's probably why I have to wait 2 months. SIGH someone reassure me
