Are there still massive delays for obtaining a carry permit in Denver? I am planning on moving to Colorado in January, and I heard the 90 day turnaround time was not being followed. Is there still a backlog or have things returned to "normal?"

You still need to meet residency requirements. all counties have the permit info posted on their web site.

Hi, I see that Denver allows people to come in on a walk-in basis. So in theory, if I get to the office early enough I should be able to get through the process rather painlessly, right? The only reason I ask is I had heard there was a delay in the process early in the year and surrounding counties like Adams had an appointment requirement that essentially meant months of addition wait.

A friend of mine just got his permit in the City and County of Denver, took almost the full 90 days. They're in no rush to issue, told him not to expect it any sooner-if, in the officer's words "it gets approved". Seems like, at least in the metro area, most agencies are taking advantage of the full time frame.

Not everywhere in the metro area. I completely spaced that my permit was expiring last month and JeffCo turned me around in 3 weeks.

reread my reply and go to the denver CCW web site. Denver usually goes the full 90 days.

You're right, Jeffco seems to be the best county to live in at least for the metro area. If I didn't like my neighborhood (Centennial/Arapco) so much I'd move.
