    Getting antsy

    I mailed off for my non-resident Florida carry permit on May 2 and nothing yet. I'm positive I don't have any problems that would hinder the issuing of my permit. Does anyone have any idea about how long it takes normally?

    IIRC they say up to 90 days.

    Mine had a slight holdup cos they lost my something or other piece of paper so had to send another. Even so - it was IIRC not much over 60 days. Probably coulda been well under that if they hadn't lost the bit of paperwork.

    Hmmm May 2 .. well coming up to 60 days so hopefully not be too long. Guess it all depends how busy they are - plus getting Charles Bronson to sign

    Here in OK, mine took exactly 90 days, but they told me to be prepared to wait up to 6 months because they were so backlogged...I wonder if my being contracted to DH/CBP helped...they did a big background check on me when I got hired 5 yrs ago.
    Better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6

    Quit saying stuff that gets me discouraged.
    I submitted mine at John Wetzell's place April 9th.
    I expect to see it in the mail box every day.

    I applied mid March. A month ago they sent me a letter saying I did not include a photo. BS...anyway I sent them a new one. I called them yesterday and they said it was approved on the 15th of June. So I should have it anyday now. You can call them and ask for a status. But for me with photo delay it will be about 90 days.

    BTW the Utah permit is now running 8 months! Since the Trolly shooting and VT there was a run of Utah residents wanting a CCW. They are now processing Utah residents only until they catch up.

    So Florida might have had a run on permits too for the same reasons!

    Thanks for the info, I was beginning to worry a bit, but my wait is about average so far or maybe a little less. I think I'll quit watching the mailbox.......as they say, "a watched pot never boils"
