    The counties here have nothing to do with it. It's all handled through one state office. With electronic fingerprinting I'm still hearing an average of 6 or seven weeks. With paper prints a few more.

    I applied for a non-resident FL last August. It took 75 days for it to hit my mail box.

    Hmm....actually much longer. I am currently awaiting mine and it has been since Nov. 1..so that is what 11 weeks. It is supposed to be 90days, but they are blowing past that now. Oh and for those who ask, no I called no issues, they just have that many requests in front of the right now.

    I was told yesterday by clerks at a gun store in IL that not to worry, if you visit FL, you can walk into the relevant office complete the process and have the permit the same day.

    Are they for real? Crazy? I should mention that I already have my Utah CCW, if that makes any difference.

    I applied for my CCW last January and it took 3 weeks with electronic fingerprinting. Today a friend at church told me that he just applied and was told by the licensing division that it is taking up to 4 months! I guess there has been a huge increase in the number of applicants. Thanks Obama!

    41 days for me so far. Last I heard, it was taking the full 90. Sounds like they might be passing by that now? I actually try to stay away from these threads, so I don't think about the wait.

    Not a chance.

    It looks like from the posts here that it is every bit of 90 days.
    Many are more.

    A year and a half ago, P.O. (pre-Obo), it took me 37 days, I think.
    No chance today.

    In addition, unless you have a DD214(right form?) from the military, you need the class, then the fingerprints, then mail to Dep't of Agriculture, then wait, and wait....

    Yeah they are crazy. I hear FL permit applications are at an all time high and wait times are longer than ever.
    When my mom lived in FL I went to have my fingerprints electronically done and after traveling an hour I found out that there are only certain days at specific times when this is done.
    So I applied having paper prints and it took 2 months about a yr ago.
    Your Utah permit may be the "certification" that you may need to get a permit as FL wants to see some kind of training taken.
    Go online and request a application and go from there.

    A buddy and I each sent in our paperwork and electronic fingerprints back in September, took about 45 days to hit the mailbox for both of us.

    I understand that using the electronic fingerprints is supposed to make it much faster.

    It may be better to expect it in 90 business days. They're swamped.

    I went ahead and applied for a Virginia Non-Resident CWP since it only costs $100 and they accepted the same certificate I got for my Florida CWL. Submitted the application today -- according to VA state law, I will have a permit within 45 days as long as all the paperwork is right. That'll hold me over until FLA comes through... :)
