3-4 months from application date would be a good guess. I suspect the MSP is covered up in applications now. Be patient and if you get a permit with a restriction, apply for both an informal (with MSP trooper) review and a formal (by the HPRB) review. I have the "DOD Contractor" restriction and hope to get a hearing before the HPRB to get it lifted (if the MSP doesn't take the restriction removal to court). My informal review with the trooper was useless, except to show him that permit holders can be a responsible, polite bunch.

Informal reviews are useless. Don't waste your or the time of MSP.

Agreed. If did nothing for me. MSP probably only holds "Informal Reviews" to appear reasonable in giving the citizenry a voice. Nonsense. And if we knew how many permit actions were reversed by an informal review (my guess is less than 1%), we could expose the practice for the sham that I suspect it is. Can we find that out? Maybe a FOIA request?

Evidently, only a few officers are "qualified" to do the interviews, and not every MSP Barracks has one. The reality is that the officers must be able to patiently listen to citizens, in various degrees of frustration, and then act concerned and show empathy, all the while knowing that nothing is going to change because the Superintendent of the Maryland State Police, and State Attorney General Frosh, have already decided what constitutes a sufficient reason for a W&C permit. Not every person, and certainly not every cop, has that politician's mindset and can ignore peoples' rational arguments and show no emotion, even if you personally agree with them. I would have a hard time doing it.
Sgt Pickle at Pikesville was pleasant, polite and friendly, and then told me nothing would change unless the MSP policy changed up-channel.

Probably Sgt Pickle. Nice guy. Everyone should try to get their restrictions lifted.

A lady contractor did my initial interview. Very polite and friendly. After I left, she immediately called my wife at the number I provided, and then my 3 references the next day.

I just moved to Southern Maryland and I want to get my wear and carry. What is the best way to go about getting it? I've been told that if I go through a company that I would have a better chance of actually getting the permit versus me just applying on my own.

What do you mean by "a company"?

Yes.

You do not need a lawyer.
