Got my two PTA's today, and i applied for them a bit more than a month ago (4th of july, funny that too). Those were my first pta's, so i had to wait 28 days... so pretty good i reckon. Except that i called the gunshop and my savage mkII isnt here yet... oh well, back to waiting...

Thats a fair wait. Did you apply at the Cop station or online?

Yes I know but 15 weeks seems excessively long for 2 years ago since firearm license applications have increased by 37% in the last 12 months alone and Ive been told 12 weeks before mine comes through. It takes longer if you apply in person at the cop shop because weapons licensing deal with the online apps first before touching hard copy apps, hence the reason for my question. I applied online so am curious to see if it takes the 12 weeks they estimate.

Just recently went for a PTA myself. 28 day wait period came and went, at about the 34 day mark I phoned QWL and politely asked the status of my PTAs. Approval email came that same day and got them in the mail 3-4 days later.

All you guys are crazy. Why are you waiting for Old el Posto when they'll fax it to the dealer direct. You gotta call before you get the email saying they've issued it though...

Learnt that the hard way :lol:

EDIT: That's QWLB. Not sure about the other states.

My last PTA for a 308 took around 5 business days from application online to arriving in my mail box, this was about 2 weeks ago.

Both my PTA's have taken 24hrs! The PTA for my first handgun was approved in 24hrs but I then had to wait the month as it was my first Cat H firearm. I recently bought my second handgun, a .22 and it also took 24hrs. Maybe I'm just lucky!
