    FL Concealed Permit

    Just something I STILL find funny...

    The FL CCW/CWP is issued by the Florida Department of Agriculture.

    Okay...technically, it's the FL Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

    Still...

    Currently, the Commissioner of this department is Charles Bronson. Right now, when you get your permit in FL, you'll have the signature of Charles Bronson on the license.

    Sadly, when I shared this information with a couple of other people, they didn't get the joke because they had know idea who Charles Bronson (the actor) was.

    I feel so old.

    I have the Florida application on my desk. Had I known it would be signed by Charles Bronson, I would not have hesitated so long.

    I know what you mean. I was visiting a job site today and another person and I was talking about one of our coworkers who looks like Charles Bronson. And we talked about the pretty lady he was married to that also starred on some of his movies. I had to look it up because all I could remember was Jill and her name was Jill Ireland. I also found out that Jill Ireland was married to David MacCallum, who was Ilya Kuryakyn on the Man from Uncle and is currently starring as the Fornesic Pathologist on NCIS. Apparently when Bronson worked with McCallum, he told him "I am going to marry your wife" (Jill) and did 2 years later.

    More useless information for you to remember.

    Reminds me...a friend's mother had a framed picture of Charles Bronson hanging in her dining room or kitchen in a fairly prominent place. Also asked us a couple of times if we'd like to see her gun.

    Having to go through the Dept. of Agriculture lengthens the process of getting a permit a bit, I think. They can't run the background check themselves, so I think it goes off to FDLE via snail mail, unless you get your fingerprints done electronically. Cuts the wait down drastically. Otherwise, they have 90 days, and darn it, they make you wait nearly every single one of them.

    Good thing is...I believe...that since the permit is issued via the Dept. of Agriculture, and they have no connection to NICS or FDLE (FL Dept. of Law Enforcement, for you non-Floridians), we don't have the situation where a LEO running our driver license pulls up our CCW as well. I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain that doesn't happen. Yet.

    It sucks, and I was literally counting down the days on my work calendar.

    Well worth the wait, though.

    "Reminds me...a friend's mother had a framed picture of Charles Bronson hanging in her dining room or kitchen in a fairly prominent place."

    I'd have loved to see the rest of that "home decor" especially the refrigerator magnet collection.

    The only signature I could think of that would be better than Charles Bronson would be The Terminator.

    When mine expires in 2010, I think Ill frame it and put it on the wall of my office.
