    Florida Permit

    Got my Florida permit in the mail yesterday, 11 days after I applied. I applied in person at the Regional Office of the Division of Licensing (under the Dept. of Agriculture). I had to make an appointment to do it in person, which was a 4 week wait. It was worth it to me to go there and complete the online stuff there, get my fingerprints done there electronically, and they took my picture there too. Cost me $117 but it is good for 7 years. It also gives me a total of 36 states. Not a bad experience at all.

    I actually knocked out the pic and fingerprints at the sheriffs office got my notary done at the bank and went online to run my prints and mailed it all in got it 3 weeks later. It's faster to mail it in then wait for the appointment IMO

    Got my FL permit processed in 3 weeks. Took one week for a trip from Tallahassee to Pinellas county which I can do in 3 hours. Good old USPS.

    for all you newbies,look at the card that came in the mail, it says
    CONCEALED WEAPONS AND FIREARMS LICENSE.

    it is not a permit

    The wait for the appointment was worth it to me. One morning off of work and a one-stop get it all done deal. Since I had my Virginia CHP already and they reciprocate I was still able to carry during that time (I asked about that when I called and made the appointment just to make sure).

    Mostly carrying my XD40sc. 442 gets the nod a bit too. Also working with my G36 at the range and carrying it occasionally.

    it is not a permit
    The two words being synonymous, I fail to see the significance of the differentiation. Both terms indicate a document conferring an authorization with established rights and limits. It's like saying I didn't buy my "license" as it were, I purchased it. What's the difference? In any event, whatever one wishes to refer to it as, I now have mine for this particular state. The one I have for Virginia (where I spent the last 14 years) is described by that particular state as a "Concealed Handgun Permit." Perhaps 14 years of referring to that one as a permit is a habit that was much more ingrained that the "License" I've had in this one for 2 days.

    Glad the process went smoothly for you. We'll still let you carry when you come to visit, whether you bring a permit or license.
