    Was wondering what the current wait time is. I'm at 75 days now, "still processing". I got my pin right at the 30 day mark.

    I was hoping for about a 90 day wait, but someone at work told me that it was way longer now. And check the 1st reply to this thread, where the poster says he just got his after submitting it in Feb 08 (no typo) ?????

    Yeah ... take the class, get the paperwork sent in, then take your time shopping for the best deal on your equipment.

    I'm not looking forward to the wait time just for my simple renewal.

    I think I got really lucky. I sent mine in back in August and had plastic in hand after 54 days. I was expecting a long wait but somehow I was passed really fast.

    Took class mid-January. Mailed off paperwork end of January. Received PIN on 2/24.

    Currently my application is "Still Processing".

    I actually called the DPS last week and the nice lady in the CHL division that I spoke with let me know that they were waiting on the background check from the local authorities. She said the "Gulf Coast" agencies were way behind in this (I assume from Ike). I just wish I knew what she meant by "way behind".

    I've seen in a couple other threads guys recently getting theirs after about 4-5 months, so I hope that I'm only a couple weeks out at this point.

    It's been 91 days since I received my PIN and still Processing Application
    A local friend of mine sent her application in 1 month before I did and she hasn't seen anything either. :(

    I guess our background checks are being sent to Austin via 1-legged horse or something.
