Re: Applying for new CPL as green card holder

UPDATE: sheriff sent the brand new CPL in the mail on 2/1/2019 and I got it already!. So, it took 20 days for them to make it and put it on the mail plus time to hit my mailbox. Hope this thread helps future green card holders having questions about getting a CPL. Summary: it is all good and smooth just like for any citizen.

UPDATE: having CPL doesn't stop NICS from delaying background checks at least for a rifle. Will update if I do a hand gun transfer.

Damn, guess I’m lucky most of mine come back next day. Like a good 90% of them. The others are back within 2 days. I’ve had one take 8 days but that’s one out of 30ish background checks.

What is this thing called "delay" that you guys keep talking about?
