I thought I'd share my recent experience with getting my CWP in Florida.
In early September I took the the concealed carry class and the instructor told us all that we would benefit from applying at the regional office because we'd get our licenses quicker, so the next day I called and made my appointment which I could not get for over a month later on 10/8/12.
I drove over an hour to get to the office and when I got there the whole process was pretty smooth. When the person at the office was taking my prints, she had trouble getting a good print on my left pinky finger, which i think I fractured as a teenager playing baseball, but i never saw a doctor, so it is now slightly crooked and she had touble rolling it across the screen which takes your prints after the third try she said that'll do I guess and sent me off. Today, almost a month later, I get a letter saying my prints were not ledgible and i would need to return to the office to get my prints redone.
Needless to say, I'm really frustrated with the whole situation as I paid $42 to have my prints taken, I missed a day of work and spent the time and gas driving out of town to go to the office. I called the occur e and Talahassee to see about trying ny $42 dollars back for the inconvenience of having to do the whole process again, but because its a government office they said no of course. At this point I think I'll just go to my local police dept and have them take my prints but i have no idea how long it will take as they do not do it electronicaly. I also think I am going to try to contact a supervisor about the issue and see if i can get some refund but its unlikely.
