I started the paperwork to renew my CCW permit in November of last year - four months in advance thinking "I'll have PLENTY of overlap" so there would be no problems... The lady (attractive middle age chick) actually chuckled when she saw exactly when it expires, and said something like "You sure you want to start it this early?" I said "yeah, I have the time off now, might as well get it going..."

They have a website to check the status (first in the nation according to Guns and Ammo magazine) Turns out the various process and machinations necessary to renew have taken long enough that it will EXPIRE before I get the new permit.

It ticks me off that I've done everything right, allowed TONS of time for this, and it STILL won't come in time, and to top it off, (if I remember right) the permit starts when I started the paperwork, not when they approve it, so if that's right, I get shafted out of FOUR MONTHS because the gears of government grind sloooowly!

OK, rant off. I just needed to vent. Can't vent to them or else you look bad.

Hopefully it won't be long and I'll get it a week or so after it is approved...

Just ensure you allow plenty of time for your renewals, guys.

Which County? You should request a temporary permit while you are waiting.

Macomb... sorry, forgot that!

Meh it will only be a week. I am not that worried about it.

Oakland processed my renewal in just under 4 weeks.

Well hopefully I'll be living in Oakland next time I need to renew!

Oakland was really good about getting my CCW in the first place, and then with the renewal. Maybe soon we'll see how good Royal Oak is about a CLEO sign-off on a mg...

Wayne county took 5 months for me last time. I hear they have speeded it up since then (read that here). They will not issue a temporary unless you show evidence of some sort of emergency (credible threat to life, etc). At least that's what they said (mine lapsed for a round 2 months).

My expiration date is 5 years from the date the permit was issued, not from when I started the paperwork.

Could you post the address or a link to the website you mentioned for other county residents?

What's the website for checking your progress?

Macomb county clerk's office

First in the country according to G&A magazine, just remember the old adage "A watched pot never boils"

And I sincerly hope that the new permit is five years from date of issue - really, I do.

I have played the waiting game before in WACO, too. It gets old and stays old for some time.
But, on a brighter side, the permit expiration date is 5 years from the date the permit was issued. Hope you get yours soon.

Monroe county didn't take long at all to process my initial permit. 5 weeks, 2 of which were due to my having to explain an open container Misdimeanor in college.

Handgun safety checks only take 5 minutes there as well, awesome.

I hear Wayne county is terrible for processing CCW.

I finally got my license. I was without one for 8 days, after having started the process over four months ago.

Ah well. I'm just glad to have it, and the new license is good for 5 years. They also aren't printing your address on the license anymore.

Wayne renewal took less then 2 weeks. I know it was crazy when it arrived. I couldnt believe it. I thought they were refusing me.
Link Posted: 4/5/2006 7:11:37 AM EDT
It occurred to me that perhaps part of the renewal length of time is that they do a NICS check now (after Nov. 2005) per that other post...?

I dunno. It shouldn't have taken that long. Oh well, I have it now.

When did you get your permit? I have been waiting for 4 weeks and my buddy has been waiting for 8weeks.
