...anyone know how long it takes to get your permit back once you file it with the Sheriff's office?

I've got several handgun permits that I have never used, and those only took like a week to get... But, I've heard that the CCW permit can take forever sometimes... Just curious if anyone has any experience with it.

takes a week to a month. I paid up on my CC class a year ago but never went to the damn class because it was in Mooresville. You can take the class before you go to the Sherriff's office.

I heard cops treat you like gold when they see you have a CC. They like knowing they aren't alone if poo hits the fan.

The wait time depends on your county sheriffs department
Got mine last year in forsyth county in about one weeks time
I think everyone should take the class
You will learn alot in there

I think you HAVE to take the class now... if you want your CCW, you have to have a certificate saying you took it...

I'm taking it in Johnston County. They set them up at a local farm/firing range from time to time, and I happened to find out about it through someone who knows the instructor...

I think it should be a pretty quick return, compared to most areas, from what I've heard...

lol yep... 40 shots, and you basically have to at least hit the paper 28 times... Your shots are at least (somewhat) timed, though... ie. he tells you to fire X times in X seconds...

I was proud of my wife, though... All her shots were in a pretty small grouping considering that she'd only first fired a handgun a couple weekends ago, and not once since...
