I mailed my application for a permit and it was received by BCI on the 19th and my card charged on the 31st of March.

I was told that BCI was running at about 5 weeks.

Is this what everyone has experienced?

I can't wait any longer :nilly:

Yup. Pretty much 5-6 weeks when I got mine. Others have gotten it in shorter time.

You can call and ask them what week they're processing so they can give you an updated guesstimate.

It's worth that wait though, and pretty much out of your hands (as I'm sure you know!) 8) Let us know when it comes!

They told me it could be up to 3 months when I got mine, but that was about 3 years ago, and I got it in about a month from when I submitted.

Mine took just over three months from the time the check was processed to getting my CFP but this was last summer when it was so slow.

today is my 7 week anniversary. Whoever told you 5 weeks on march 19th was probably wrong. I have been monitoring and the have been holding at 7 weeks since the beginning of march. In fact I called on the 18th to check and was told they were 50 days out. I've called 3 times and this is what I've found. Submitted on Feb 21st was told they were 35 days out. Called on Mar 18th told they were 50 days out. Called on Mar 26thy told they where 50 days out. Called Apr 2nd told they were 51 days out. I just called today and they are processing from 45 days out. I also asked How long after processing it takes to receive your permit (since mine has apparently been processed) and they said it usually prints the next day and then add whatever first class mail from salt lake to you takes.

Based on this it looks like I'll get mine just in time to put it in a drawer while I head off to California for two weeks and then out to sea for some time. Ugh. I was hoping to get it soon enough to have a week of carry time before I go.

Have you called and asked them yet? You should be up this week or next, if it was anything like mine.
I'd avoid calling, for another week or two anyway.

According to my CFP instructor, when the BCI got really backed up last year, part of the problem was that they spent half of their time on the phone answering status questions, rather than working on processing permits.

I haven't called them to find out. I'll just wait it out, it is kind of fun driving the wife nuts with my daily calls to home to find out if it came. :D

They used to post status on their website. Perhaps someone here should create a thread that can be updated once or twice a week so everyone wouldn't have to call.

I called bci today and they are processing applications from the 25th today so yours will probably be processed this week and you will probably get it next week good luck.

Today is 6 weeks for me. I paid cash for my permit. Will keep watching for it, and call on week 8.
