I originally got my CCW in Fall 2008, then renewed five years later. No issues. Now, however, my second renewal is taking a while. I submitted my application December 8, and I am still waiting. (BTW, for some reason Nicks always gives me a hold when I buy a gun, but I never have had a denial.) I've called the Deputy in charge twice now, and he says the hold up is in Columbus, who will mail the paperwork to him when they get to it. He says Columbus has been slow with some other applications he sent in before the holidays. He says he will call me to come in to get my photo taken and pick it up. Well, it is January 17 now... This is in Belmont County.
