    I just posted a similar experience in Tampa. I used a check, but if it takes two weeks, I'll still be happy.
    I went in fearing the usual government treatment, but found the office to be efficient and friendly.
    As a follow up to my earlier post, I received my permit in the mail today.
    I went in person to the Tampa office on Sept. 22, and received the permit today, Sept 28. That's 5 business days from application to permit in my hand.
    Those folks have their act together. And best of all I was treated as a neighbor.
    I'm not sure how many offices of the Dept. Of Agriculture are in Florida, but if you are close, I highly recommend going in person.

    background checks

    you do realize that background checks take all of about 5 minutes to do once the yahve your info. the rest of the time is to print the little card and put the correct picture on the correct card. It's all overhead...$$$.

    Yes. So then why are people who mail in their forms waiting for months? I'm happy I went in person, I apologize to all of you that I seemed to jump to the front of the line. Maybe the pile of mail is so big, they are happy to see a real human come through the door.

    i dropped off my paperwork last week at the local dept of agriculture office... the person behind the counter stated that it would be 90 days or more and then uttered quietly about this isn't the quickest way to apply but did not explain. Thinking I missed something, I called back to inquire more.

    Come to find out, Just dropping off the completed paperwork at the local "express" office does not constitute "express" and now i am stuck waiting the 90 days... they also said that you can't go in and re-apply using the express method on the computer once you submitted with the full paper version..

    Here's to hoping that it won't be too long of a wait...


    EDIT: i called another location and they stated that i could re-apply but would forefit the fees already incurred from the paper application... so i booked my appt.

    My wife and I completed the application at the licensing department in Tampa last Tuesday (9/15) . We recieved the licenses today in the mail (9/21).

    We were told 2-4 weeks and thus were surprised. Obvioulsy, 2-4 weeks is great compared to the several months others are having to wait.

    The process was painless. Took about 20 minutes to fill out the questionaire on the computer at the licensing office, get fingerprinted and sign the paperwork. We took a money order and it is our understanding that that makes the process go faster than a check since they don't have to wait for it to clear.

    You love the bucs too right? NOT
