7 Days? 7? Maybe my mailman hates me....
Still waiting... i talked to my buddy back in Florida and he said there is almost a 2 month waiting period.
Slidewayz240 >>>>----------> I Have no idea what they will issue you.
You mailed about a week after me so I am interested to see if yours or mine comes first.
It feels like every person in Florida is getting a permit.
Question for all: My Wife works for Publix. A few weeks ago a purse was left in a cart in the parking lot
(Happens more than you would believe). In the purse was a pistol, but when they looked for I.D.
To contact the owner there was a carry permit. Question is, They had to call the Sheriff because the woman
did not respond to there telephone calls. Would this be a reason to have your permit revoked?
That is good timing. I was considering applying for a non-res there as I am from MA and have family there that I travel to visit. I recently had a similar experience when I applied to RI as well whereas the issue time was less than 3 weeks.
I took the CCP Class, fingerprinted, cut a check on 31 Jul, check cleared 8 Aug, I'm still waiting... Checking the mail every day! ***Drums fingers on Table***
I saw online on Florida Dept of Agriculture website, that it is currently taking approx 6 weeks... that is about where I am now, a little over 5 weeks.
I applied for my CWP in person at the Miami regional office on 8/28/12. My permit says it was issued on 9/4/12 and I received it in the mail on 9/8/12. I had to bring ID, training certificate and $112 cashier's check. They did everything else there.
At this point I wish I had gone to Tampa (About 70 Miles South of me) and just done it there.
I am at 60 Days since I mailed mine. I am prior service so I could have used my DD214 but did a class and submitted it that way. It's making me wonder if they did my background check, saw that I was Prior Service (Honorable Discharge) and have "Questions" as to why I didn't just go that rout.
Answer is, Its been 29 years since my discharge and my wife wanted me to refresh! (I learned nothing new in class, but it made her feel better). I'm good with that.
What they look for on the DD-214 is Markmanship awards--the proof of firearms training. They aren't particularly concerned about the level of discharge.
That's what I used for my CWFL. Of course it was A.F. training, which generally means you can hit the ground at 50 paces with a .38 S&W and a M-16 with .22 LR adapter (Yeah, that's what they used on us back in the day). I tried to explain to them that all bullets (unless lodged in a tree or something) will hit the ground eventually. All that accomplished was another trip to the range on the A.F. nickel. I qualified as expert in rifle and pistol, but that only means I didn't miss enough not to.

My "Packet" was opened and information entered on September 17th... If this is anything like the Army my permit will make a nice Christmas Present.
In 1980 we were using M-16's with full auto and standard ammunition. It was several years later in the Army they started using the .22 Caliber adapters.
I had an appointment at the Tampa office about 10 days ago. After about 8 days, they charged my account for the 112 dollars for the fingerprinting and application. The people at the office said ~2 weeks, so perhaps I may get mine by this week... maybe. Just purchased a gun belt and now trying to decide on my full time holster.
UPDATE: I just called a few minutes ago to check on the status of my application via their automated line. My application is granted and all that's left is the manufacturing of my card and sending it. The line said 2-3 weeks for that, but it also say 4-6 weeks for application decisions. Fingers crossed for this week!
