It figures as soon as I start mentioning the length of time it takes to get a renewal for a CHP in NC I receive notification the renewal has been processed and the permit is on the way to me. Yesterday I received an email and call letting me know the permit was approved and it could take up to 14 days to arrive. I still wonder why the renewal process takes so long, but at least it is complete. It would have absolutely sucked to have a limbo period between the old permit and the new one when the application was submitted almost 90 days before the old permit expires. Here’s to another five years!
