3 months for FOID?
Posted 20 July 2019 - 10:20 PM
I applied for my FOID and CCL on 3/19/2019. It is 7/20/2019 and I still have not received it. I'd even settle for a denial, just so I have some clue of what's going on. But the status on the ispfsb website keeps saying in process. I've tried to call, even sent an email, but to no avail.
Now, what I will say is right around 4/19, the website said the name I provided did not match my license. I only have 1 name, and my license says so. However, computer systems won't let you get past with just 1 name. So as a correction, I entered the following:
First name: (my actual name)
Last name: license only has 1 name.
Middle name: sys does not allow 1 name
About 2 days later, the website update my info with just 1 name. That was about 2 months ago, and I've had no update since.
Does anyone have any advice on what I can do?

So just your first name is what's on the DL?
You have NO middle or last name?
And I'd think that filling in the blanks with what you typed above would get you a denial maybe, who really knows!
I see you have 3 letters as a forum tag....LRZ
not your initials?
Good Luck and Welcome to the forums

In any case, this is a new application for a FOID and CCL. I know the descrepency in my name and how I originally applied is probably the crux of the problem because my wife, who applied at the same time I did, received her FOID in 30ish days. I had hoped the correction I made almost 2 months ago, and the correction made on the website by the State Police, would've resolved the problem by now.
I will definitely shoot Molly a message and see if she may have any additional advice.
Bubbacs- when you pronounce my 1 name, it breaks into 3 parts phonetically! LRZ is the beginning letter of those 3 parts!

All on one line, no?
And Madonna n Prince have real names on their ID’s etc.
Those are stage names
Not trying to be rude, trying to maybe help
The ID thing could be resolved maybe by breaking the name up like you said.
Again good luck

Because my birth certificate only has Bartholomew, my driver's license reflects that. But, since computer systems always require a First and Last name, I have used Bart Bartholomew on almost everything, including my bank accounts, gym membership, loans etc. That was how I originally submitted my FOID/CCL application, which came back as my names not matching. If you remember the ISP website, there's no place to explain my situation. So putting that note on the middle and last name slots was the only creative way I could think of. Seemed like it worked since a day later the website reflected my name as only 1 name.
As for my handle name, it's like Bar-tho-lo-mew would equate to BTLM.

You got solid advice from the gents that spoke up and Molly is the true Ninja Master of all things ISP. See what she reccomends and you should be cool.

I know this is an old post, but for anyone still reading it....
Yes, Molly is truly the Guru of all things ISP. I could not be where I am had it not been for her help.
Just short of 10 months since I sent in my application, I finally have my FOID & CCL on hand! Don't know if I hold the record for longest wait, but I'd like to think 297 days is pretty long! Needless to say, I'm stoked to have them both!!!
