    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.

    That blows azz!! I live in Tallahassee, 10 miles from the Dept. of Agriculture building, and I still aint got mine. Mailed March 10th as well. Sheesh . . .

    got mine today too!
    mailed on 3/15
    44 days since mailed in w/ electronic fingerprints

    significantly less than GTnCFL for some reason, maybe they processed them all at once.

    The law says that the permit is SHALL ISSUE within 90 days unless there are intervening issues that preclude the issue -- like they find you're a convicted felon. In the early days of the permit (when I got mine back in 1987) it was typical of the state to take the whole term and you to get your permit on day 89. Likewise I also remember rejections taking 89 days to process for whatever reason (usually a messed up fingerprint card) after which you'd have to start all over. Haven't heard of those kinds of glitches in years. As an instructor here in FL I usually keep tab on issues like that.

    Still no permit yet. It will be 5 weeks tomorrow, 34 days and counting. Electronic Prints..

    I suppose they're really being overwhelmed with applications. Some of you are taking up to 70 days even with electronic prints.

    Mine took closer to 60 days to arrive. I live in Florida and submitted electronic prints.

    Mailed packet on March 7th or 10th, permit arrived around May 10th.

    Two months and still waiting. So far as I know they have within 90 days to say you're denied, but no real limit if you're accepted. Mine might take a tad longer if only because they didn't like where the local PD put their stamp (who, being a smarta-- the second time around, placed it on a couple different places).

    At this rate I'll have the whole rig (have gun, have holster, belt's shipped) and handgun training before the permit ever gets here.
