    Approved right after I sent that. Lol, now to start the W&C!
    Why did you do the HQL first? You can just take the WC and get HQL on the MSP website after you're approved. No extra steps. unless you took all the classes and applied before bruen ruling.

    I did the HQL first because they were saying it was a 90+ day wait for W&C. I didn’t want to wait.

    ahh gotcha. Honestly, I think i learned more in my HQL class than i did in my CCW. The ccw class was a joke. i think it was less than 7 hrs total. I got my HQL years ago though and didnt know much about MD laws, so it was kinda worth taking. I was exempt for the HQL because i have my hunter's safety card but took it anyway.

    Congratulations! Still waiting on mine and getting antsy! Did they send you an email first or did it just show up as approved on the MDSP site?

    Thanks!

    No worries! It'll come! It's sure to come for you really soon!

    They didn't send an email but it is fully approved on the website with a link to a printable license/HQL number.
