    Florida Concealed Weapon License in 6 Days

    Starting about August, FL opened a number of offices in larger cities to process the licenses and this was supposed to speed the processing drastically. Well, I think it did. I feel bad for all those still waiting for theirs since doing it the old way.

    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.

    I know someone who applied 3 and a half months ago via mail. STILL NOTHING. Good stuff!

    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.

    Yeah..I can't understand for the life of me why it takes 90 days to do a persons background check?
    It should take NO MORE than a week!
    And the money you pay to get it...the AG should personally deliver it to you!

    Sent my application 4-22-09 on about August 10th I reieved a notice to have my finger prints redone. Sent that in two days later, finally got it today. 9-23-09 only took five months and one day. It seemed like five years.
    Don't give up, it will show up eventually.
