    Smile PAL/RPAL Timelines

    Sorry if there's already a thread for this, couldn't find one so I'll blaze an internet trail.

    May 24: Mailed Application and test results for R/Pal from Lower Mainland BC
    May 30: Received at Miramichi
    June 19: Message appears online: “Your application has completed initial processing. It is now in progress. Please check the status again at a later date.”
    June 20: $80 Cheque Cashed
    June 22: First Reference Interviewed
    June 25: My Interview
    June 25: Second Reference Interviewed
    June 27: Message appears online: “Your application has been processed and your licence has been issued. If you have not received your licence within 2 weeks please contact the Canada Firearms Center Toll Free number. (1-800 731-4000)”

    Total 28 Days from day received at Miramichi, never had to call in.

    Wow... That is really lucky. I waited almost 3 months on mine, with me calling in to bug them, too!

    But, nothing has ever been more worth the wait, ever. :-P

    My buddy (54 years old) has been getting the run around for 6 months from the wonderful people at the CFC. I think they must just pick names at random to see how long it'll take for them to complain to their MP's. If they delay his any further, I'll make the appointment with his MP myself and go with him.

    Hummm. I forgot about this thread. My buddy got his after about 9 months. He was honest, and told them he had an FAC forever ago and still had it....put the number on the application. They looked it up. The excuse for the delay.....his old FAC from the 80's had his first name as "Ken".....his current application had his real name "Kenneth". Wound up having to send them half of his ID to prove to them that is name was actually Kenneth. And they wonder why people just say screw it and don't bother getting them. I think with the reinstatement of the BS fees, a lot of farmers and guys who don't take their guns (non-restriced of course) out of the safe are going to say to hell with it and go under the radar again. I hope so anyway.

    Holy smokes! and I thought mine was going fast. Still don't have it in hand, it just says it's been issued so we'll see how long it takes to get it now.

    Sorry to hear about your buddies process blacksmithden, sucks they dick some guys around like that. Best of luck to you in getting your MP involved, I've heard that can bring about results.
