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.
Applied August 20th 2018
Issued November 7th 2018
Post marked November 9th 2018
Received November 30th 2018
79 days from application date until issue date but for some reason took 3 weeks to get it in the mail from the postmark of the 9th to the 30th when I finally received it.
CCW renewal at Vegas Metro today. In at 07:54 and out of the doors at 08:30. Super quick and easy. Hope the days to issue holds up. Current one expires in 114 days.
Heads up for anyone going tomorrow the 18th. They are doing a software upgrade and the fingerprint side will be closed all day. Also they are open for bussiness now on the weekends. Didn't pay attention to the hours.
