Posting here to track my time.

I finally gave in and applied for the HQL

I was fingerprinted today and just finished the application. I had one hang up with the hunters safety portion since my hunters safety number is so old, but adding my pre 2013 Ruger SP101 seems to have cleared that up.

So now i'm $108 in the hole, I have to wait to be approved for my HQL, then I have to wait for the pistol I want to hit the roster, then I have to wait 7 days and show up with a bore lock to pick up my pistol. Yep, we live in the free state

I applied on a Tuesday, it was active on Friday before I woke up to go to work. I had it in the mail on Wednesday. So call it 1 week total time.

Seems like not a bad place to ask, I’ve finally decided to get my HQL. I am going to go through Essential support Serivces in a Eldersburg. What are the steps? I tried the online MSP portal and it looks like I have to do the fingerprinting before starting an application.

So print Livescan application/document, fill it out, to in, get finger printed and get the case # or whatever the heck it is called from that and then I can immediately fill out the application and submit it? Then waiting game?

Seems like I should just pick one reason to be training exempt. I assume it doesn’t matter if I go hunter safety over regulated firearm?

Anything I am missing? On the livescan document, what do I put under the agency information? MSP licensing I assume, but what about agency authorization number?

Or should I just print it out, fill in what I am sure of and ESS will tell me what else I need to complete on it for an HQL.

Thanks!

8 days

Hi all,

Fingerprints and training completed on 11/2, Everything showed completed on the 7th other than the NICS check. Sometime this morning my status changed from Pending to Approved, so 8 days from submission to approval. Hopefully it will come soon in the mail!

Good luck all...this is a good time to be applying. I'll be taking CCW classes here shortly then applying for that...we'll see how that process goes!

Brad
