Welcome from central Mississippi.
Greetings & welcome aboard.
Don't know anything about local or FL law, but sometimes the feds will delay the process -- if you have a name close to someone in their database. Sometime, I suspect they delay because of a rush, or a party going on.
My full name is exactly the same a know terrorist from Australia.
Even after he was locked up in Gitmo, I had waits at airports, but not nolonger at gun stores. Go figure.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
Veni, Vidi, Velcro
Welcome and hope you get an answer to your question.

Sorry, I would guess it may have been a store policy... but just a guess. Regardless, welcome from Texas.

"Yesterday i went to my local gun shop to buy a Glock 36, and could not take possession.
The dealer said i have to wait 7 days.
I have my Florida cwp, does anyone know why?"
Ask them why. It's a legitimate question.
Welcome from NC.
I think you will like the G36 when you do get it ,
they are nice guns
Zoe: "Preacher, don't the Bible have some pretty specific things to say about killing?
Book: "Quite specific. It is, however, somewhat fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps."
I have my CWP in Florida and never had to wait. Call them out on it.
Welcome from Kansas.
God bless our troops!
It looks like you might get your answer,.. after you have the gun in hand.
Surprised we are up to page 5 and no answer from Florida, if the state was in the title they would be showing up..
Welcome from EAST tEXAS
Here's what I found re Fl:
they will have a 3 day waiting period. the 3 days is actually 5 days because it doesn't include the day of purchase or the day of pickup. So if you fillout the paper work on Monday, your three day wait would be Tues, Weds, and Thurs, and then you could pick up on Friday.
So depending on the day you bought it (b4 Holiday) it could be 7 days easy
