    Waiting on the Waiting game

    Update from DPS in TX. It has been bout 35 days since I submitted paperwork to the DPS. My CHL instructor said I should receive a response on line in about 2 weeks. I have been checking online and still no change in status. So I called the Service Center and was told very politey that because of a swarm of apps, I shouldn't expect to see any change of status for 6 to 8 weeks! So I guess the"within 60 days" is out the wi ndow, lol. Oh well, I guess he could have said 6 months.......

    Patience is difficult, especially when you want that permit so you can carry for self defense. Patience is a virtue, so they say. I hope you don't have to wait to much longer.

    Just hang in there... it will happen. Although mine only took 31 days mailbox-to-mailbox, I actually forgot about it and was pleasantly surprised when I got it.
    Take this time to practice carrying around the house (unloaded, if you are drawing!), maybe check out some holsters.
    You're on your way...

    Just be thankful you are not here... the statute says 8 weeks, the average turnaround is about 16 weeks.

    Thanks all for the encouragement. Iam ok with the wait however had no idea it would be this long. Guess you can't always rely on the experiences of others.
    I do practice carry in the house and on the deck with my 738 with Talon IWB. 738 is real small and weights nothing. I believe it will be my edc vs my G2 9mm.

    Mine took 38 days from when I put it in the mail to when it changed to background under review. I mailed mine on 4/4 and it has said background under review for a little over a week now (not expecting a change for at least another week).
