    IIRC mine only took about 10 business days. DoD Civilian and I had just been run through the NICS for a background check within a few months of applying for my CHP. Not sure if that accelerated my processing on not, or if it was the backlog or lack of it at the time that led to mine being rather quick. The standard speech you get when you drop off your application and pay your fees is "3-4 weeks". Might also depend on which county, I got mine in Thurston FWIW.

    $56 covers everything including lamination.

    5-6 months. OSP must be very thorough.

    It depends on waht state you live in.

    In Texas it used to take 2 to 3 months.

    Right now it's taking 5 to 6 months - way backed up on processing the paperwork.

    Since last year a lot more people are getting concealed carry licenses.

    Jeez, I live in King County, WA and if it only take 5-10 days I wonder if I should just do that before buying the pistol. Isn't it true you can walk out of the store with a pistol if you have a CPL? That might be faster than the 10 day wait period.

    Once you have your Washington carry license, you can buy a pistol with no waiting period at all. Just walk in, buy it, and carry it home with you.
