    A question for those who used their Android phones to do the photo.....
    What app did you use to ensure that the photo was acceptable?
    Thanks for any advice.

    I applied for a renewal of my RPAL on June 5th and received it today on July 4th. Pleased with that turn around!! My wife signed the application which makes me wonder if tht helps speed up the process? They didn't call her to confirm or anything.

    Re: Have you renewed your Pal?

    Ran into a business colleague who I hadn't seen in about a year. He's the biggest Gunnie I know. His PAL expired in September last year and he's still waiting for his renewal. He said he calls every week or every other week and they tell him they've seen a major influx of new PAL applications over the past year and they're way behind. Mine's up for renewal next spring, but I'm thinking I might start the process sooner than later. Crazy to see how some folks get their renewals immediately and others get seriously screwed over and have to wait indefinitely

    I have been waiting since about a week before Christmas 2023 . I have multiple times and it’s always it could be a couple of months . I find it frustrating .

    A buddy of mine has been waiting for a few months now for his initial PAL card to arrive. I suggested he call in once a week. His last call he was given the 'not sure what the status is, call back in 2 months', he asked to speak with a supervisor and was actually transferred to someone who almost immediately approved his application and told him it will be sent out once it's printed. Part of the ridiculousness of all of this is he took the course with another buddy who received his PAL 2 weeks after sending it in, they both sent it in on the same date. I guess it really depends on whose hands the app falls into when it gets to their office.
