It's the same size as a drivers license, and uses the MVA photo, but that is it. The thread below shows a sample.

Applied 2/10 still waiting in the Pending status.
Checklist is gone, MSP said I'm approved, no license number available.
Have to wait for the card to purchase. Their sending out cards in batches,
No clue when the next batch is mailed out.
Well so much for getting your license number before you get a card.
No ticky no laundry

What a bunch of shit those assholes are pulling, they are just being assholes by not letting you see the number, I guess that's their way of making sure you've got the card before you buy a handgun.
Last year as soon as mine went active I could see the number until I received my card.

For the last 4 months no problem with seeing and using your license number?
So they make and change the rules as they go along, that's straight out of the Marksist / Socialist handbook. "Control the masses".
It's very discouraging to abide by their rules only to be screwed by the long dk of the law.
WTF is next?

That just proves they want total control of everything.

Hate to think of the wait time to get mine. I said I wasn't going to get my hql, but want to make another purchase.

I was able to see my number as soon as I was approved. No card, no application. That sucks.

She's still waiting? I applied 1/27/14 and got approval 26 hours later, and my HQL number was available to me when I saw I was approved. Actual card itself took until mid-February to arrive in the mail.

I speculate that perhaps because I purchased a regulated firearm right before 10/1, my HQL check was quicker and easier to accomplish. Had your mom made a purchase recently? Has anyone noticed if HQL approvals take longer for folks with no recent purchases, versus folks who had recent purchases? Thoughts anyone?

What date did she apply? They only have thirty days. You mom may be the case many have been looking for. If she is beyond thirty days let MSI know immediately.

So I passed on a number for her to call... She did and was told that the application was not submitted but she noted that when she went through the process online once she submitted her application it went pending( I watched her submit it) . Anyways long story short the person that would be able to help her left at 3pm. She was directed to call tomorrow morning and they would work with her to get it taken care of.

More and more often, I take and save screen shots of things I do online so I have some sort of record that I did MY job and when I did it.

Work makes me take these online BS classes and I generally do print screen because I have had problems in the past with getting actual credit for them in the system SO guess this is another learning experience ....

I feel dirty! I just paid my OweMalley 2A tax. Applied for HQL 2/20/14.
I had a hard time with the first section of the application. The system would not accept todays date or my occupation. It took 6 attempts.
