    California is every two years, a four hour class, recertify with your guns (you can have four listed in Butte County) and about a week's wait from your Sheriffs department.

    My wife and I had the "standard" Idaho CCW licenses for years before the "enhanced" versions became available. Then, when Idaho went to "no license required" for concealed carry, we waited until our "standard" versions expired, and then took the class to get our "enhanced" Idaho CCW licenses.
    We don't do a heck of a lot of traveling, so we weren't much concerned about "reciprocity" with other states. However, because we still have ties with Idaho State University we end up on campus there every once in a while. And as you probably know, "enhanced" Idaho CCW licenses are required for legal carry on Idaho's college and university campuses.
    Besides that, having an Idaho CCW license (either the "standard" or "enhanced" version) makes gun purchases from licensed dealers more convenient as there are no phone-in background checks.:thumbup:

    Ha, NYC laughs at all other jurisdictions!

    Eight or nine page application, affidavits from three character witnesses (who better have clean records), photos, prints, classes, interviews, etc., etc., etc. and a large fee, $430, to apply. Mostly all for naught, because unless you're a VIP, you ain't getting it.

    I think at least they're finally posting the application on line, they used to make you pick it up in person. In addition you must have signed and notarized affidavits from your cohabitant and person who will safe keep your guns if you are incapacitated.

    Maybe except for Honolulu, they haven't issued a carry permit to anyone in years.

    Are you referring to Cuyahoga County? Other counties are much quicker. My last renewal in Lake County took 15 minutes and I walked out with my renewed license in my wallet. Well worth the drive to Painesville from North Olmsted.

    Our new county Sheriff put in an online renewal system his first week in office this year. Before that they could only be renewed in person at the Sheriff's dispatch office. I either spend the extra money in an online "convenience fee" or in gas to go over there. So it doesn't make much difference for me. The previous Sheriff printed simple permits right there on site so instead of having the permit in 15 minutes it takes about a week to arrive in the mail.

    Currently, mine is good for 8 years. I say currently because Florida has changed the "rules" many times in the 34 years since my original in 1988. They dropped the 8 hour training requirement a long time ago. Price was almost $200 in 1988. Renewal went down and duration went up several times. Used to go to the "State Office building" on Robinson st in Orlando, then Dept of Agric by Florida Mall. Now, county Property Appraiser office does it. $50. Joe

    Me too. And having a LTC makes it easier to buy firearms here.

    Your county must be pretty busy? After reading your post, I went to Wood County's site. My wife and I license renewal isn't due until September. I thought if 6 months was the backlog, we'd better set up an appointment. Nope, Wood County is only setting up appointments 2 months out. And a random date checks showed many open slots.
    I guess now they only require a minimum of 8 hrs. training.

    Good point and as you know, here in Ohio (I was addressing new issue permits) you can register to see the sheriff in your own county or an adjacent county. I happen to be in Cleveland, Ohio so new permits can be interviewed for in Cuyahoga or any adjacent county. As o0f six months ago the wait up here to get in for the sheriff was six months including adjacent counties. The last I looked into it for a friend who did the CHL class it was six months. Even at that I see two months as too long for a right people should have had in the first place. I can walk into my local gun store, buy a gun, have my BCI check completed and walk out in 15 minutes. This should not be a delayed process and I do not want to hear about COVID excuses.

    Also, thank you as yes, it appears the courses are now 8.0 hours including proficiency in live fire. What I found strange is looking at the course material seems to focus on proficiency skills rather than the laws. Years ago the emphasis was on learning the laws.

    You're welcome!
    Under the original application, they state that applicant must attest to have read the Ohio AG's "Conceal Carry Law Book". Whether the classes go over it, I don't know. I know our class went through it in 2012.

    I agree with you. There shouldn't be that long of a delay. I'm pretty certain that Ohio background checks are through the NICS.

    Around here, you make your appointment, have the form filled out. Bring a recent printed picture of 2"x2". Finger printed. 15 minutes in and out. Within 2 weeks, they email you to pick up the new license.

    Same here. To me, it doesn't make sense not to renew your LTC.

    Absolutely! It's one thing to stop giving out new ones, but to cancel existing "lifetime" deals is just fraud, IMO.

    I'm surprised no one fought that, or if they did, lost. Seems like that's a broken contract.

    Man, I'm glad this thread popped up-- it made me look at my CCW card to see when it expires, and it does so in June. I also learned that the state no longer sends renewal forms automatically in the mail like they used to; now I have to print a form from the relevant website, fill it out, and mail it in. I'm making a note in my calendar to do that when it's time (can renew up to 90 days before expiration).

    We've been constitutional carry here since 2010, but a card is handy for gun purchases, travel, and going into a restaurant that has a liquor license, so I maintain mine.

    Here in Indiana I put in for a lifetime CCL when I first got mine so no need for renewal. I did it online & it took three days for it to get to me through the mail.

    I live in Dinwiddie County now despite my credentials under my username.

    I had to renew right in the middle of the height of the scamdemic. I waited longer than planned, I had originally planned to do the mail in deal, but because of my procrastination I had to go the courthouse just a couple weeks shy of my expiration.

    I walked straight into the courthouse with no mask (I've not wore one anywhere the whole time) and did what I needed to do. No one said anything to me and there were many other employees without face diapers.

    Anyhow less than a week later I had my renewal in the mail. AND, to my surprise it wasn't the paper I had been so accustomed to, it was a hard copy just like a DL, sans photo.

    Oregon is a mystery state. I have a concealed carry permit. Last year, I bought 2 firearms. On one, no wait. On the one previous, one week. Last week, another purchase, got flagged. Bought another gun last night. Maybe OSP will let me assert my rights. I dunno. I'm waiting on a call back from the popo to tell me my left thumbprint needs to be redone or something.

    Our CCW is renewed every 4yrs, never had a problem. Call up one of my daughters childhood friends, tell her I'm renewing, she says, "OK, Judy", and pay over the phone. Get it in the mail in a week.

    Dunno what made me think about it last Thursday, but I started counting the years since I got my permit and realized 2022 was another renewal year. Pulled it out of my wallet... 15 more days.
    Quick trip to the sheriff's office and I'm good for another 5.

    There are other advantages and places we can go that constitutional folks are not supposed to. Not to mention being able to walk past those pesky 30.05 and 30.07 signs when concealed. Well worth the 35 bucks for 6 years and renew online.

    In Arkansas, we have 2 different CCW permits. You need the base level one in order to get the "enhanced" permit. My wife and I just re-certified. Part is online, but we also have to pay a state certified person to observe us shoot a very simple range session. And that person has to sign the renewal request as well. Not a big deal, I like to shoot. But it is an extra step and expense compared to many other states in this thread. I'm not sure if the shooting parts is required for the base level renewal. The shooting requirements for the enhanced license were much more rigid than for the base permit.

    OK but leaving me a little confused. So when it comes to carrying a concealed handgun what id the difference between a base license and an enhanced permit?

    Another member from here in Ohio reminded me the course of instruction is now 8 hours which includes live fire. When you sign up for the course I guess they tell you to show up with something like 400 rounds of ammunition. This may vary I would guess on who is teaching the course. Instructors who teach the course are NRA certified. Years ago the NRA certification was a two day course of instruction. I was surprised when I found out that the course now has all the focus on how to shoot as years ago a large part was learning state laws and less focus on hitting a target. From what I read now they use targets which have four black circles each is a four inch diameter and they shoot from 7 yards (21 feet). The shooter must put 5 rounds in the black four times to qualify. A friend gave me the course materials and targets so I could pass them along to my daughter in law, which I did. Now I need to get down to Columbus, Ohio and get her out to the range. :) She has a S&W Model 60 Lady Smith which actually came to pass as a result of one of our forum members here.

    This thread has proven interesting as to learning more about different states.
