I'm actually a few days under that time frame and still waiting on mine.
Seems as though this is a tradition, like tossing your caps at graduation. Take you CCW, and take a walk at Wal-Mart and buy nachos.
There was a thread on this a while back:

Congrats on your permit. When I got mine it took almost 90 days. I called around 60 days in and they said that everything was approved but the FBI was holding things up with my fingerprints. I didn't do it electronically and had to resubmit them.
Oh, I still never did the Walmart/nacho thing yet. Gotta give that a shot.
I dont know how you guys do it.. I had to wait 30 some odd days and that felt way to long.. but congrats!
I got mine in Virginia, took about 15 days. Still getting used to carrying and constantly thinking of that "One in the pipe". getting better though. Later
It took me 90 plus days to get my non resident Fl. Permit. They had to send my finger print card back, the address of the agency that did the prints was not written in, it was just a PO Box. I had to put the physical address in and send it back. I seemed like it took 2 years though. When you are waiting for something to come it, it just seems to take forever.

Mine took about three weeks to come back. I had to do ink based prints, but I got it right quick.
One more step and it's on!
wally world may be considered a right of passage but to really make it interesting try to find something made in the usa to purchase while you're there.
