If you are applying for an update your carry permit you need an 8 hour training class that included a qualifying shooting session. If you are applying as for a new permit there is a 16 hour class along with a shooting portion. However, passing any training session does not guarantee you will receive a carry permit.

At least that is what the lawyer in my CCW course made it seem as we were chatting during the breaks. His lawyer colleagues were going to provide him with the verbiage to use and his application was going to sail through.

Thank you for your service.

Just as a follow up to an earlier comment and recommendation from other users, I sent in my application to Pennsylvania. Got a letter back from the sheriff (in my case, Adams County's) in just a week, indicating that I'd been approved. Took the relatively short drive up to the Gettysburg courthouse. It took me longer to get through the security at the front door than it did for the permit clerk in room 4 to get my headshot, print, laminate, and cashier (for $20) my PA carry permit. Presto.

Maryland is a monstrous place on this front.

Did you mail in the application or drop it off in person?

I downloaded the form, completed it, and mailed it in along with the supporting requirements (a photocopy of my Maryland DL and carry permit). They required two character witnesses ... neither of which reported to me they were contacted, so go figure. It was perhaps a week or so later I got back a "you're approved, come and get it!" letter, mentioning that I needed my ID and $20. The nice young lady in room 4 of the Gettysburg court house had me in and out in about ten minutes.

I had to pat myself on the back for remembering to leave my EDC knife in the car when I went to the courthouse. The guy in front of me got a stern talking to by the LEOs at the door/magnetometer for the Leatherman he was carrying, and had to return it to his car. At least they didn't confiscate it!

So, if you already have your MD permit, this is easy-peasey. If you don't, then you have a much more challenging task ahead of you in PA to get a non-resident permit. BTW, it's good for 5 years. But I believe you get PA mad at you if your 2-year MD permit lapses.

In short, yes. TS is almost a guarantee, SECRET is absolutely possible, but will likely need to jump thru hoops and testify at the HPRB(that's the route I took with only having a SECRET).

For those that have received permits, what was your wait time? I will be sending my application mid week next week. Just curious.
