    You can get the forms from a link on Packing.org.

    The cost was $117 and the permit is good for five years. You have to furnish fingerprints, a passport photo, the completed form and a copy of a completed acceptable firearms class. As I recall it took about 60 days. They are very cooperative. The Florida program is run by the Agricultural Dept. Go figure.

    Let me add that>>>> Some county sheriff's offices offer "electronic" fingerprinting. They advertise that it will take approx. 50days off the wait time. Also the proof of past firearms training that they will accept is>>>U.S. military DD214 form,Honorable Discharge,or proof of "authorized CCW training course. In Fla.with the "packet" of info that you get for CCW comes a detailed list of instructions. BE SURE TO FOLLOW THOSE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. Good luck.

    Make sure if you use a training course that the instructor's NRA # is on it. Otherwise, it will be rejected.

    As I recall from when I sent mine in as proof of training they will also accept a classification card from a competitive shooting organization or training from any state or subdivision LEO training. I sent in copies of the training certificate from when I got my permit in Iowa (county sheriff) and my NRA Action Pistol “Expert” rating card and my old Indiana permit. I would have to look but I think they will also take a "statement" from a shooting club that you compete and you are competent in gun handling.

    I plan on having my wife take the training for the Missouri CCW then use that certificate to get the Florida permit as it is honored by far more states.

    I live in Fl. - the time from mailing to receiving was 58 day and that was shortly after our three hurricane's and 2 tropical storms. Since Ivan did a number in our area, electronic finger printing was out of the question and still is 6 months later. So I was well pleased with the processing time. As for prove of training, a DD214 or copy of your military discharge paper will be excepted.

    Also one more thing. Be sure to keep an eye open this fall for news on new laws regarding your legal right regarding the use of 'deadly force'. In part, is will do away with the 'duty to retreat' and allow you to stand your ground to protect yourself and property.

    SB 436. It will also eliminate the civil suit following if found legally justified.
