Recommended Posts

1. Application type (FID/permit w/ existing FID). FID AND 1 PERMIT

2. Police Department where you applied. Chester

3. Name of the person you dealt with at the PD. Online application

4. Time taken to issue FID and/or permit. 30 days!

5. Documents required by the PD (aside from the standard application and the mental health release form). Driver's License

6. Notes - Chester was fast. I took a while to get fingerprinted due to life but they basically turned around my FID and P2P in about a day once my background check came back (which took roughly 29 days). I recently moved to Chester so my DL is not updated to my new address but that was a non issue. Really no drama with the process.

Awesome! Was this 30 business days? Or calendar?

Calendar. 22 business days. I submitted my application online 10/29 and got a call today to pick up my P2P and FID. I waited until 11/25 to fingerprint and pay my fees at my local PD unfortunately as didn't have time prior so even more amazing that both were done 11/25, background check finished 11/28, and call came 11/30 for pick up.

Application type: FID

Pd where applied: Red Lion state police station

Person delt with: I frankly don't remember, you'll understand why. 

Time taken to issue: original application date was March 2020. I picked up my FID  card 3/13/2021.

Notes: After 6 months I discovered an issue with my application by calling in several times before actually being able to speak with someone. I was told I'd have to reapply and possibly seek an expungement first. I began the expungement process which is still not complete and was called to pick up my ID. My lawyer stated the information I was provided was false and as my arrest was the result of a traffic court date I missed due to never recieving the summons, it did not disqualify my from obtaining my FID card. The summons was mailed to an address I no longer lived at and the postal service never forwarded it. Conclusion, I wasted $650 on an expungement I did not need due to the sgt. At the state police station providing me bad information when after the first 6 months he told me I was denied because of that arrest as I checked no on the box asking if id ever been arrested for a crime punishable by up to 1 year in prison. 

The court dismissed that charge due to the error in the summons and I simply had to pay the parking ticket.

So I contacted the GTPD today, naturally the story is, backlog backlog backlog. Which is fine I guess, I can believe that as the state obviously doesn't dedicate the manpower to processing applications. But was more surprising to me is that they changed the whole process for the handgun permits. Some point between now and last year they went entirely digital. He said I will no longer get a physical copy of the permit, the state police will email a copy of it to me. You also have to pay the $2.00 permit fee ONLINE, no longer is it accepted in person. It's literally a little link that says PAY NOW! on the firearms page of the GTPD website. Had I not called nearly 56 days later, I assume the permit never would have been processed.

Picking it up today. Permit was approved yesterday. So weird that you don't get a physical copy of the permit, apparently its just "in the system". So 86 days total from start to finish for the 1 handgun permit.

1. Application type: 5 Pistol permits with existing paper FID.

2. Police Department where you applied: Ridgewood

3. Name of the person you dealt with at the PD: Records department

4. Time taken to issue FID and/or permit:

Application submitted via FARS on 9/13/2021

References responded by 09/15/2021

Received letter in the mail on 09/15/2021 to make payment in person

Payment made 09/16/2021 (Dropped off by my wife)

Permits issued 09/24/2021

5. Documents required by the PD (aside from the standard application and the mental health release form): None

6. Notes: 11 days total, Called the records department on 09/22/2021 because the check was not cashed and I never received the email from the state saying the mental health check was completed. This is no longer done apparently. Check has still not been cashed actually. One thing of note was that the gentleman on the phone (Tom i think) mentioned that there is a seven day waiting period from payment date to issue date no matter what. I never heard that one before. Either way 11 days aint bad. I hope in the future they will take some form of online payment. This would make it even faster I think.

Yeah Ridgewood is super fast. First time took 19 days, second took 10 days and the third 11 days. When I lived in Clifton it was 3 months.

7 day wait is written in the law.
