I got a notification that my Arizona Concealed Weapon Permit was due to expire June 5th. This was the end of April, and I sent the renewal application and money order back out May 2nd, within 3 days. I just got my permit in the mail today, September 18th, and the expiration date on the new permit is still June 5th. I was careful about filling in the form, and the payment information, and they didn't complain or make me resubmit.

Look after your expiration date. I think they state that it can take up to 75 days, and I guess they are using all of that and then some.
