    I'm currently at the 12 week point. I had my interview on 11/24, I know that I've been approved, but it's still with the FRB. It's ridiculous how long this process takes.

    Same here. Applied 11/30, still pending Frb review. Just forget about the license and keep on with your life and I'll eventually arrive.

    Yeah, I've pretty much stopped worrying about it at this point, it'll come in eventually.

    If you're still waiting it's time to hire an attorney.

    Before I spent the $$$$ to do that, I'd contact the police chief, if no results contact the selectmen, if no results contact state rep and state sen. One of these usually works and works much faster and cheaper. Just be polite and factual.

    At least it wasn't pending local PD. Must be dependent on each local PD and when they decide to send it.

    Did you read the report linked in response to your last question?

    The expediency of all of this is entirely dependent on your local PD, their prioritization or effort based on interest.
    If they tell you otherwise they are being disingenuous at best or flat out lying at worst.

    Listen to Len. I did. Just before I engaged an attorney I contacted my city council. I had action in less than 72 hours. It has been said here many times before as CatSnouthSoup mentions it is a matter of priority. The department has lots to get done and this is a low priority no penalty item to ignore. Make some polite respectful noise.

    Go to work today and local PD had left a message on 2/16 to come get my license. Wish they had called my main contact number, I could have been shopping this weekend . So that’s 69 days from appt. until call.

    Called the status line and they said that my LTC was sent to BPD, no date as of when. Think I should be patient or call up BPD HQ and ask if I can stop by to pickup?

    Mine is restricted too. I was thinking about taking a handful of CC courses and asking for the restrictions to be removed, but I don't want to spend the money if they're not gonna budge.

    Guys... at least you have your LTC's. Im still waiting after 3 months.

    I called again Tuesday afternoon and the guy was rude again telling me to stop calling because that would not move my app forward. I would love to meet that guy in person...

    Some years ago an NES'r was denied due to his postings on NES. Caution is the watch word.

    Definitely. Not impossible, but they make it very difficult. Other towns, like Brookline, are effectively impossible.
