    Great advice here...get away from the document specialist who is probably very swamped with the amount of permits in Florida....asking to speak with a supervisor is probably your very best approach to resolve this. Good luck

    Smile Side question

    Just curious, did you apply for your TX permit at the same time? How long did it take to get your TX permit?
    Thanks

    Does the court system in FL not have computers? This should take about 3 seconds to verify.

    Secondary permits sometimes can be a ***** because if they find something your home state didn't catch, most times your home state will be notified and that CCP will be invalidated as well until it's resolved....anyone with convictions, especially those spread out over time and/or over multiple jurisdictions, are at the mercy of the data entry folks, whose motto is not always "consistency" - if you have no disqualifiers the first time around but have any inkling that they might have missed something or that you forgot about something (it happens, I know!), hire an attorney and have him do some discreet digging before you sign on for that second permit.

    Update

    I spoke with a supervisor today. He is backing his subordinate up with the decision to not accept my disposition due to the date being illegible. I asked nicely if they could call the court clerk here to verify the date. He informed me " It's not our job to verify your legal paperwork, we have way too much work to do as it is". I asked for an extension for the 30 day window, he took my phone number down and said he would call me back. He didn't. I guess I need to hire an attorney. Does anybody know a good one in Fl?

    Update- I went to check the mail today and I was surprised to see my Florida CFL. I guess the supervisor decided to approve it after looking in to it...anyway it's a relief. Thanks for the helpful advice!

    Exactly. I have a 'backup' FL nonresident permit too. The thing is that FL permits are WAY cheaper than TX permits and are valid for longer and require virtually no effort to get if you have a permit from another state. The whole process of getting my TX CHL cost about $300 and took a day and a half of my time and is valid until 2017. After I completed the TX mandatory CHL training, I applied for a FL nonresident permit using my TX CHL Form 100 certificate, got my prints done on the card and paid the fees. All total it was about $150 for 7 years. I don't know if I'll be living in TX in 2017, but having the FL permit pretty much guarantees I can carry in almost every 'free' state, and renewal is very easy and cheap. Yes, it is a bit of a 'belt and suspenders' kind of approach but I think it was worth it.

    This was before the panic, but I applied for my CHL in March 2012 and it took just over a month. I have literally a spotless record. A friend of mine is currently waiting on his, he will be approved but it will almost certainly take longer as he was once arrested in college for assault (bar fight) and pled nolo contere to public intoxication. I've heard that the 60 day mandatory window for DPS to approve/deny is pretty much being ignored lately due to the huge volume of applications they're getting.
