I finally received my Delaware CCDW permit as of early December. It's good for 3 years, but since all renewals happen on the same exact day, which I think is May 31 2017, it's really only good for 2.5 years. They don't stagger renewals each year, and then wonder why they have a processing backlog.
I am still a proponent of open carry, but I must say it's quite convenient to finally be able to just slip my 432PD j-frame and a speedloader in my pockets. This is also the first winter where I've actually been able to regularly carry. Not to mention I can actually carry in Wilmington, which is good since the violent crime rate here is worse than 99% of the country, including worse than Baltimore, Philly, Oakland, Compton, Camden etc.
