    I haven't had any updates since being assigned my NICS number on 11/10 is that normal or are they just dragging their feet for some reason?
    IIRC my whole process took 68+ days or so. IIRC was approx 30 days after print button & saw my Nics #. It's a lot faster now from what I've read, like <40 days to approved vs. when I did mine. Right after Bruen when EVERYONE was.

    Okay, I'm just a little impatient I guess. Waiting on the HGP so I can work armed security so it's a little frustrating.

    As I said above, you're on track. No foot dragging here. Approvals have been around 35 - 40 days after Accepted date. Go back and look at some recent approvals.
    35-40 days isn't bad for MD but it could be the day of just like PA once you have your residency permit.

    I just joined this group but wanted to share my HGP/CCW timeline.

    Submitted application on 10/31/23
    Application accepted 11/1/23
    Approved 12/7/23.
    Permit in hand 12/11/23

    (Don't ask but I also applied for the HQL- applied 10/31/23 and approved 11/20/23).

    I'm not complaining but 5 weeks for an HGP seemed "quick" to me.

    I didn't hear anything about an investigator at all and I'm pretty sure references were not spoken to.
