    Hey all, I was wondering how long the process took in your towns for your LTC-A. I live in Fitchburg, and my wife and I dropped our off 1/23/09 interviewed and printed same day[smile]. Thought this might be a good thread so newbies get an idea how long it usually takes. God knows I am constantly looking at the calander[rolleyes]. Thanks all for sharing.

    I dropped off my "packet" and did my prints on 1/05/09 and was told it would be about 21 days. I stopped by on 1/23 and it was waiting for me.

    Pittsfield MA, here.

    After printing and photos, I had my license in exactly 42 days.

    I had to wait a long-ass time for printing and photos, though, as the licensing woman only had appointments on Thursdays between 10am-2pm. Once I got in, though, I must say that Ms. Wheeler was a joy to work with, and the Chief (who interviews ALP applicants personally) was very professional, rational, and courteous. In fact, I feel a little better knowing that Chief Wynn is in charge of things at the local PD. Seems like a real stand-up man.

    My initial was 1 day short of 6 months in a red town.

    Renewal is 'give me just a minute to get that for you' in a green town.

    I was 'at the mercy of the man'. I called around the 2 month mark and inquired about it. I mentioned I should of had an answer in 45 days. Then was politely told, "I can deny it now if you would like an answer today".

    11 weeks in Cambridge, but they blamed the delay (they say 6 weeks is the norm) on them moving buildings.

    Hudson was 3 weeks to the day.

    (Today in fact. Too bad I don't get off work early enough to get it until Friday. Then I'm heading straight to WM to stock up on some ammo.)

    I would like to thank everyone who has responded so far, I never expected that this thread would get this many replies in such a short period of time. I thought this thread would have some merit & value, with out the poster having to devuldge personal info unless they so wished to. You guy's have been great, thanks again, and keep posting, still lots of towns out their. Hope you all have a great day! :)
