Is it true that you dont need to go FBI building downtown, and you can just turn in papers fingerprint all that in sub stations? I had that did his ccw that way.
Neither. It must be done at county sheriff's main office, though some counties may have an alternate location designated for it. It has nothing to do with FBI or local police.

Didn’t you do a report a couple years ago almost justifying the delays from metro? On that the same forum linked here?

That said, when I got my PA license, it took under 5 minutes for approval. In person.

The guy making the picture Id took about 20 minutes to do the pictures AFTER approval, cut and laminate them for the folks who were approved.

***edit: pedantic point WAIT vs weight

You're all gonna love this answer. Sorry for the blog redirect, to lazy to repost it all here.

How Long Does it REALLY take Metro to Issue a CCW?

I agree most of the wait, is just that: wait. I can certify for LEOSA, but I don't know what different paths it takes up and down the chain once it gets submitted. It's interesting to note that it's an annual process, not the 5-year we get for CCW.

I was offering their excuses. Each step in the process takes as long as it takes (minutes), but each step goes to the bottom of the stack. I think Metro's valid excuses only work when they're sending for more info from Esmeralda-type counties where cell phones are still regarded as magic and the Internet unfathomable.
