    Matt

    I've never been able to apply that one anyway. Dealers insist on doing the NICS check whether I show the permit or not.
    I'll take a .45 and a large side of JHPs, please.

    7 yr. permit is nice!

    Missouri is still only 3 yrs. bummer!

    Now if we can get a lifetime permit like Indiana, life would be perfect!

    Congrats again on your new permit!

    Is it still 117$(or whatever it was before)?

    I'm sure most of NY state permits are life time also. I know a Girl from Dutchess County and Her's is life time. CT is five years also.

    Got my FL permit about 3 weeks ago. It took 47 days and is valid till 6/21/15! Didn't expect that. Anyone know how big a hassle it is to renew? Do you have to re-do the training and background check before submitting a renewal application? I looked into a Utah permit, but the Utah Bureau gal told me I'd have to be trained by a Utah-rules-specific instructor. Where the heck do I find one of those in New Jersey?

    How strange, I just got my Florida permit on June 21 which is also valid until 6/21/15. (Also my sons birthday) It took almost 3 months for me to get mine. I thought it was never going to arrive.

    Yeah, that's one of the new "additions" that Florida added once July 1 '08 rolled around. The CCW isn't usable to purchase a pistol now, and you have the same three day wait? Bummer if this is true.

    Glock27/ KaBar TDI/ MTAC Holster. I have more also, but this combination works well..

    Where did you read that we now have a three day wait on purchasing firearms?

    Piece of cake to renew your FL license. They'll send you a reminder and form in the mail at least 60 days before your license expires.......so make sure you keep your address up to date. You can do that on-line in 30 seconds if necessary.

    You fill out the form, sign it and have it notorized, get a new photo, and mail it all back to the State with your renewal fee. Nothing else required.

    Who knows, by the time 2015 rolls around, they may have the option of renewing on-line!

    I think Matt was just talking about the quick background check (NICS) that the dealer does when you purchase a firearm, not any three day hold. It only takes a few minutes to do it and before, legally the dealers didn't have to do it. They still most always did though because it was an easy $5 for them. I guess now they can legally take your $5.

    Not at all. There is no wait for those who hold a valid ccw.

    As others have mentioned, in some states, the ccw exempts an individual purchasing a firearm from the NICS check......due to the length of the term of the FL ccw, FL licensees no longer get that exemption.

    I can live with that!
