Concealed Handgun License : Manufacturing Pending
« on: August 05, 2011, 07:56:28 AM »
Boy it sure is nice when the CHL status site lists that everything is received and background check is completed and:

Concealed Handgun License :   Manufacturing Pending

Originally applies back 8/28/10 and just sent in papers July 22, 2011 so showing manufacturing pending Aug 5th looks like good turn around time after sending papers in. Now the exciting wait begins.

That's awesome Dom!  I had heard that their turn around was pretty quick after the huge backlog of last year.  I know someone that took him 4 months before he got is after sending it in.

Ouch, 4 months would make me cry, and have to re-apply due to how late I was sending mine in.
I took long sending it in primarily because after applying and not listing any previous arrests (due to being asked to listed any arrests immediately after the mention of disqualifying offenses which do not include traffic tickets or bench warrants) , I found out that even traffic arrests for unpaid tickets should be listed so I felt like I needed to get the exact details for those that I had. Eventually I gave up trying to get anywhere with Harris County Clerks Office and just hand wrote that I had 2 previous bench warrant arrests for traffic tickets and that seems to have been good enough for them.

Yeah I was worried that might be the case with mine but it went from awaiting documents to manufacturing pending all the sudden.
Guess hand writing a note was a good enough way to clarify as I was worries they would make a big deal out of me not disclosing it on the app.

Nah, I'm terrible about checking my mail and try for at least weekly. Since I hardly leave the house usually I'm far less impatient for it than most folks are.

I was too,  but now that you are waiting for something it makes you check.     I was waiting on mine so I could go buy some guns (issue with my name makes it almost impossible for me without CHL)  so maybe thats why I was so impatient.

Ah yeah, unfortunately I don't have any gun money currently so that's not a concern. Will be great though next time I am buying.

Yeah will be nice to have their attention while talking guns instead of them splitting their attention on the phone :)

And just noticed that the "pending" is over and it is now "manufacturing":

Oh, the DPS status page actually updates now?

The first 2 times I did the application thing you sent in the forms and money and the status just sat there at "Processing". Months pass. Then 2 or 3 weeks after you all ready got the license in the mail, it changes to "Approved and mailed".

Thanks a lot for the info DPS.

Yeah from what I have heard it has gotten a lot better but is still usually a few days behind.
