My initial in Jan 09 was 60 days. Didn't use a mailbox to send my renewal. Emailed my docs the same day I completed the online app. So, my app completion to plastic in hand (which was yesterday) was 38 days.

My wife's timeline was:

Jan 24 - online application and payment
Feb 14 - fingerprints done
Feb 16 - class/range
Feb 18 - mailed
Mar 25 - Online updated to received / Background pending
April 25 - Showed background complete / pending manufacture
May 2 - Plastic in hand.

I'm noticing a trend. A lot of people seem to have received plastic on 5/2. The funny thing is their mailed/submitted online dates (when DPS had all their info) are very different. I think that these things pile up till some one grabs a handful of them and knocks a bunch out at one time.

56-60 days

DPS shows they mailed plastic on April 30th. I figure mail man will bring it either tomorrow or mon/tues.

I forgot to say it takes along time to get it so when you mail your packet no need to check everyday youll stress yourself out. :iagree: :thewave
