    So this morning I finally got it...took me two weeks to submit my application,
    a month and a half of tiresome waiting...another two keeps attempting to pick up the permits, I've finally got it this morning. I must have called liked
    150 times to my police department. It's sad when you memorized the number.

    Now I need to pick up my G19.

    :wow: 8 months???

    I would have gone crazy...I just bugged and kept calling.
    That is just not right, as the PD is the one to issue the FID & permits.
    Did they say why it's taking so long?

    That is a total bull....it takes them 2 mins to print up the little card
    and permits....then bring it to the chief of police to sign. All they are
    waiting for is the background check which should not take a week.
    Sorry man..i really feel for u...

    Submitted my FID card and handgun purchase applications in mid-November. Still waiting, just wrote a letter to the officer who handles them today. I think I'll start dropping by the station weekly starting next week.

    Finally got a hold of the local police officer who handles the FID applications for my town. and requested that he look into my application. Much to my surprise he called me back the next day.

    Apparently the State Police raised the fee for FID/Handgun purchase permits *after* they had received my application (in fact, after contacting my character references), but still held my application up because I hadn't paid the new fee.

    So not only do they retroactively hold applications due to a fee increase, but they also don't bother to notify either the applicant or the local PD.

    So I got a money order for an add'l $6.25 and gave it to the officer who is sending it on.

    This is NJ, btw.

    Sad to say, I've heard of issues like this on other forums. At least you contacted them and got the ball rolling. I would wait till your reference send back the letter...wait a week and call them again. They should do for asap, since you've waited so long.

    Heh, my references already sent in their letters about 2 months ago. As far as I can tell, the State Police have everything, but held it all up for an add'l $6.25.

    If that is the case, they should process you paperwork immediately.
    From this point on it should only take a day or two. I would call again
    on Thurs. Explain how you waited for months and have never been
    contacted of the price change. Maybe you might get lucky and pick
    up on Fri.

    I also live in this awful state and am getting fed up with a new anti gun law a week. Start writing your assembly and senate members telling them enough is enough. This is one of the strictest states (NJ) on gun laws. They have to hear from us the "law abiding gun owners"!

    Police department had been holding them since April 4th. "Oh, didn't we call you?" Sheah right.

    So, to sum up:

    Applications submitted - 11/16/07
    FID/Permit received - 4/4/08
