    What are these bureaucrats doing?
    Nine months, 5 courteous emails later, I finally got a phone call that I missed, but the wife spoke to a nice lady from the CFO office. My licence is in the mail.

    Get ready wallet, you're going to be empty.

    I feel that. Immediately ordered a Mossberg 500, Derya TM22, scope, reflex sight, ammo, extra magazines, cleaners and a cleaning kit, and a pelican case. No regrets. Congrats, may your wallet feel lighter.

    Well it takes a lot to impress this old guy these day's, my PAL expires in Sept so I thought I better get at it given that there are lot's of threads about it taking 4 - 6 months or more.

    Mar 1 - Send via Canada Post Snail Mail
    Mar 6 - Received and given Initial approval
    Mar 15 - Credit Card charged renewal fee
    Mar 23 - PAL issued and mailed - post marked Mar 24
    Mar 28 - In my hand this morning.

    Fastest turn around time in history for me:

    In 2024 it took 27 days
    In 2019 it took 94 days
    In 2014 it took 108 days

    Either they are getting more efficient or they are just taking pity on us old guy's, I'm impressed
    we were all born ignorant but one must work very hard to remain that way

    Feb 20/21- completed CRFC/CRFSC
    Mar 10 - CFSC/CRFSC results came in the mail
    Mar 11 - Applied online and all references confirmes the same day
    Apr 18 - License Issued

    To note i am in Ontario and i did check off "Yes" to previously being arrested but that charges were dropped etc.

    I did call the CFO around April 10th who told me they have everything and it was about a 6 month backlog. I was expected it based off all the comments in here and reddit. But i called them the next week and was told ot was approved and sent to new brunswisk to be printed and mailed out. I think i lucked out tbh
