    I dropped my application in the box 12/30/08. How long does it take to get a PIN?

    Does anyone else find it odd that DPS is trusting you to carry a loaded firearm but they don't trust you to send a personal check?

    Nope. These days, the cost and hassle makes it not worth dealing with. We also have too many other ways to transfer money without the risk to the receiver.

    Currently 30 ~ 40 days to get PIN based on another forum I visit.

    Where did you get that info?
    I sent a personal check with no problems.

    Got my pin back in 11/10/08 after 2-3 weeks, still waiting on my plastic. Hearing stories of 4-6 months for that.

    They are not stories :) Those are facts. I am in my 3rd month. Stories are those who get there CHL in less than 2 months :)
