    Mine took 87 days from the time I mailed the app until I received the permit, but that included the time it took to get fingerprinted again after they lost the first card.

    Back in 2006 it took 23 days from door to door.

    Not necessarily. This may only be true if your first set of electronic fingerprints didn't get rejected. Mine did. Then I had to drive to the next county to get them redone since my county hates the electronic fingerprints so much they now refuse to do them. So, 30 days after I submitted my original set, I was forced to resubmit, and now I'm waiting again.

    The good news is that every time I call the Division of Licensing, their on-hold recording reports that they are experiencing a record number of applications.

    I dropped mine off at the Dept. Agriculture licensing off in Tallahassee on April first. I used electronic finger prints and was hoping that by dropping off at the office it would be faster as a side benefit they took my picture and notarized it for free. I hope it will be soon so I can make my second trip to Wally World if they are still allowing us to carry there with out videotaping the whole thing.

    Mailed my packet March 10th. Called today and got confirmation that my application is in processing. Didnt get an estimated time for issue though.

    I'm a non-resident and sent in paper fingerprints, just got my CCW a few days ago, this is my timeline:

    March 10th - Mailed application
    March 21st - Check cashed by Florida
    April 17th - Card issue date
    April 23rd - Card arrived in mail

    So, right at 6 weeks from mailing off the application to having the permit in hand.

    P.S. I'm a police dispatcher and have been ran through the FBI database several times before as part of my job, but I don't know if that had any effect on processing speed. I also had the ability to practice and did my own prints under supervision of my boss, to make sure the real fingerprint card was flawless.
