I moved and forgot to change the address on my FID. I am picking up the chnage of address form from my local police station today. I don't have any criminal issues, I just want to buy a new shotgun for my Maryland sea duck hunt.

Does anyone know how long it takes to get the updated FID card?

Depends on the PD....Mine took about 6 weeks in Toms river.....How long ago was your original issued....Its pretty much like going through the entire process all over again...make sure you go online to DMV website and change your address on your drivers license first.

Original was issued about 12 years ago. I changed my drivers license but didn't think about the FID until I was denied at Dick's Sporting Goods.

I just did redid mine, they have to send it to the town you lived in and wait until the police send it back. Mine took 3months.

I actually moved within the same town, so maybe it will go quicker.

I moved to a different address in the same town...6 weeks to get FID card back for just an address change.

That is illegal for them to make you get reprinted your prints are on file already....

Necessary in my town.
Necessary in mine as well. I even have digital prints on record with the feds for work and they are making me do it. Insanity.

Prints are digital now.
That is exactly why I shouldn't need them redone. They could just look it up in the database and check to see. But nooooooo, I need to pay $60 for some reason to have them redone.
