Has anyone put in for their CCW in Lyon County. I put in on May 24 and was told 6 to 8 weeks with 120 days possible. I called 2 weeks ago to see if there was an issue and the gal told me they are waiting for the state, that this is were the hold up is. I have read on other sites that people in Vegas are getting theirs in roughly 4 weeks and some in Washoe are claiming 53 days to get theirs.

Maybe someone can shed some light on this. Why is it that if you get pulled over they can have an answer for wants and warrants in 10 min for an arrest, but it takes 120 days for a CCW from the state.

Because it's the maximum allowed time. Make people wait and fewer people will want to get one - at least that's the theory.

Mine took about 75 days. The lady at the office in Fernley said the delay is mostly due to how long DPS takes for the background check.

Sheriff Veil signed off my ATF Form 4 in just a few days, so there shouldn't be a problem.

Lyon County = 56,000 people.

In Douglas, I got mine in 6 weeks.

Mine took about 125 days. From what everyone I've talked to says, they're taking it all the way out to the wire on basically every one of them. No idea why, when Churchill can get them done in 2 or 3 weeks.

Have a couple friends in Dayton who have told me 90-120 days is not uncommon. Don't ask me why.

I live in Lyon County, Nevada, and on several occasions I have had direct contact with Sheriff Allen Veil. Sheriff Veil is very pro-gun (he has signed off on several ATF Form 4 for me and approved my CCW application) and he has absolutely no problems with private citizens owning or carrying firearms. So I can attest to Sheriff Veil is not deliberately slowing down or interfering with your CCW application, processing, and approval. Sheriff Veil is not giving you “BS.”

Your need to understand that here in Nevada, the 17 Sheriffs all have very different levels of staffing and budgets that effect as to how quickly CCW applications get processed. Example: While in Clark County taking fingerprints are digitally scanned, in Lyon County the taking of fingerprints is done the old fashion way, rolled ink.

Also, one needs to understand that with the Nevada Department of Public Safety and the FBI, CCW applicant criminal background checks and fingerprint verification is a low priority. So often there is a delay is processing and approval of the fingerprint checks!

In short, the time it takes for a Sheriff’s Office to complete the CCW application process is not even with all of the Sheriffs’ Offices and is based on resources and processing time, not the population of the county’s population and number of CCW applications.

I know you are eager to get your CCW, but be patient! You bitching about it will not speed up the process or make Nevada DPS or the FBI move faster! Remember, per NRS 202.366(3), Sheriff Veil has up to 120 days to deny or approve your CCW application.

Read and you shall learn! There is more to the CCW application process besides a 10-minute radio check!
