    You can speed up the FL application process by going to one of the centers.
    You bring all of your paperwork with you and the process is pretty quick...2--3 weeks (I believe) instead of the 60-90 days.

    My renewal a couple of years ago was only 10 days door to door. The huge volume of requests for a permit is clogging the system
    That's both a good and bad thing...longer wait, but more permit holders.IMHO

    I was not complaining at all.

    CT permit depends. NR usually is faster than R as it does not require to go through a local process (you go directly to state which is the second step for residents). Local process depends on the "cooperativeness" of your PD. My permit took 7 weeks.

    State statute sets clear limits which stipulate the process should be much faster. But too few people are fighting this. HERE is something to complain.

    My wife and I mailed ours on Dec.3rd checks cash on Dec. 12th The wait is what ever it is THANKYOU Florida. Glad to hear of all the apps.coming your way. Maybe other states will get the idea. Our Pa. Permits take about 10 to 15 minutes in Lackawanna county. Pass the nics and it is yours. We will gain 7 states with the Fl. License two of which are bordering states Ohio and Delaware. Pa. Is honored in 30 states and we gain seven new ones with florida so once again thankyou Florida.

Mississippi has a population of about 2.8 million, Florida has a poulation of over 19 million, my county alone has a population of 1.8 million. I believe the state is doing an outstanding job based on the work load.
    Now I know why I live in MS. Thanks for clearing that up for me. LOL

    Florida CCL warning.......

    Only problem with mine was that the fingerprints I had done at the local Police Department couldn't be read so I had to go through the process again. Took about 5 weeks.

    Arizona runs about 2 weeks mailbox to mailbox, costs less and has nearly the same coverage as FL. Meeting the training requirement may be an issue, as you don't find AZ classes all around the country like you FL and UT. There are some alternatives. YMMV

    Not meaning to gloat or anything but I was very surprised & happy to receive my license in the mail after about 3 weeks.

    I'm two months in and patiently waiting. I've made it almost 50 years w/o a permit so a few weeks more makes no difference.

    The Fl Dept of A&CS CWFL site says 90 days and always has stated that. They're working on maximum oveload currently. Your procrastination is not their emergency.

    When re-applying in Florida, if you live close enough to make an appointment at a local Dept. of Agriculture office, you will wait a month or so for the appointment date to come up, but then you walk out the door with your renewal license. That was a nice deal!
