How long does HQL approval usually take?
 
I got fingerprinted yesterday afternoon, filled out my on-line HQL application (training exempt because I already own an old legal handgun) and submitted it yesterday evening. I checked earlier today and it is showing as "Active", with a license number "HQL-2018-xxxxxx", certification date of today, and expiration date in 10 years. Also says a physical ID card will be mailed.

Is this real? Approval in less than one day?

Cheers,
elec-engr

p.s. I'm a new member, this is my first post, so please be kind :)

Statute gives the MSP 30 days to have the card back to you supposing your record and application are good to go.

Generally, most people get theirs in 2-3 weeks, depending on how busy MSP is. Could be more or less the same for you.

PS: Go ahead and introduce yourself here and welcome.

DC-W, thanks for the info. I just didn't expect to go from Pending to Active in less than 24 hours. I guess we'll see how long it takes to get the ID card.

Also did an intro of myself, thanks for the tip.

They mail out the cards on Fridays so you should have it in hand early next week.

I was approved in two days and received the card in the mail on the tenth day after submitting the application.

OK, just figured out that there is a great search function on this forum and that there are a wealth of posts answering my original question. Turns out one day approval is not unusual, but I still have to wait until they mail me the license.

So thanks for everyone who responded, and my apologies for not doing the search sooner.
