    I have just recently applied for my CCW with Adams county Colorado. The lady was very nice and told my wife and I it would be about 80 days. Okay that is fine. I can be patient, but I was wondering if anyone knows the actual process that they take after you submit the application. Also what is the difference between the BC when you buy a gun, and the CCW BC? Last thing is if anyone has dealt with Adams county in the past, or are currently dealing with them, what was your experience like? how long did it take for you?

    I can't say about Adams Co. but Jefferson was just about the full 90 days. As far as the BC, my FFL said he's seen people get their CCW and then be denied a purchase. Not sure how or why, but if you passed the BC for purchase the CCW shouldn't be a problem. Are you aware that you may carry in your vehicle legally without a CCW or in your case until you get it?

    It really depends on your county as to length of time in takes. The Front Range counties, like Adams, take a lot longer than the more rural counties, like mine (Logan). My first one took about 20 days. My last renewal, also about 20 days.

    There are basically two reasons for that. 1. Heavier demand, due to larger populations in the Front Range counties. 2. More left leaning democrat Sheriffs along the Front Range, who don't want anybody to have guns. Thus, they slow the process (imho, just to mess with you).

    Be aware that the County Sheriff MUST issue a Conceal Carry Weapons Permit within 90 days. If the 90 day time period expires, and the background check has not been completed, or some other bureaucratic snafu is being blamed, then the CCW permit MUST be issued anyway!

    If the background check eventually comes back with negative information that would preclude issuing a CCW, then it can always be revoked.

    I got mine about eight years ago. The Front Range Sheriffs, in the Denver area particularly, were being real dicks about the whole thing. Making people wait for months and months (way longer than 90 days). They've been taken to court enough times by now, that they don't do that anymore, but they still draw the wait time out as long as possible.

    Thanks for the information. I see it as an abuse of power to make us wait so long. Especially, sense we should not have to be licensed anyway!!

    I live in Lone Tree in Douglas County. 3 weeks was all it took and from what I understand they look at residency for 5 years so they had to check a couple different states for me. Either way its better than New York. I had two applications in. The first one expired by time waiting for a Judge.

    They asked for 10 years in Adams. Is it different in Douglas?
