    Dont phone until they have had it for 3 months?? Isnt the expected time like 45 days?

    "Our service standards to process a complete and accurate application are:
    • 45 days, including the 28-day legislated waiting period, for a licence application"

    Mine has been there since April...Phoned them last week in New Brunswick and they had JUST sent it off to BC CFO. Kind of hope they hurry the heck up!! It has been WELL over the expected 45 days....Dont know what the heck the delay is...Kind of getting agitated about it at this point

    Also depends what time of year you send it in. Gets pretty busy this time of year as people are trying to get their PAL's for the fast approaching hunting season. Mine took the better part of a year to come in... I called them a number of times asking what the deal was. Frustrating experience!

    IIRC there's a thread on Canadian Gun Nutz that suggests things you can try to expedite the issue of your PAL.

    They received my renewal April 15th, but didn't take payment till May 17th. So now mine has "EXPIRED" as of last Wed the 12th I've printed the page from their online site.

    I'm not the least bit worried about getting asked to see it. As I've only been asked once or twice since the program started back in the 90's But if I do. I'm ready. Their ineptitude will not make me a criminal!!!!!

    I had my PAL 41 days after they received....expected it to take longer but was pleasently surprised. I guess I had good references and a squeaky clean record?
