    I was actually asking babalou, but are you talking about the handgun permit or handgun qualification license?

    Seems babalou was talking about the handgun permit

    You will get a email once the handgun permit is decided

    Hopefully you didn't pay for additional prints for the HQL, as once you get the handgun permit, you get the HQL for free, but you must apply for it

    HGP’s are currently running ~45 days from accepted to approved. Historically, the time between other intermediate items has not been of significance.
