I have been through the pistol licensing process in Nassau twice, once for my Target and once for my Business license. Both times a PITA for sure.

 

Now we live in Tampa. 3 weeks ago the wifey and I went to the Tampa gun show specifically to obtain her a CCW license. Here in Florida, they hold a training class at every gun show. The cost is a little inflated but IMO its worth it for the convenience of getting it all done in a few hours.

 

Its much like the Hunter Safety Course class in NY, bunch of people sitting in a room listening to an instructor. The first half of the class is a sales pitch, they are trying to sell you an insurance policy, "if you shoot someone this policy we a selling will protect you". The second half they actually explain the important stuff....the Penal Code, Stand Your Ground, Deadly Force, ect. Then they take your photo, electronically scan your fingerprints. Then you have to put a round down range with an instructor present. Take all your stuff home and mail it all to the Dept of Agriculture. None of the NY type BS involved. No references, no interview, no restrictions. They respect your 2A Rights here and make it easy for you to exercise that Right.   

 

Sent the app out on 3/2, check was cashed 3/8. Now by law, they have 90 days max to issue (or deny) her license.

 

They also give you a tracking number so you can keep an eye on the progress of the application.

 

FWIW, I had done the FL non-resident a few years before we moved here and it was just as painless. I encourage all of you who haven't gotten your FL non-resident yet to do so. Its really pretty easy. Going from non resident to resident took 2 minutes. Just had to log on and change my mailing address.

Florida mails out a new packet before it expires. The only requirement is you need to get fingerprinted to renew. For us in New York it's the ink card.

 IIRC, NC requires you to take their safety course. I'll ask my Son, he's going for his when he has some spare time from traveling around the country fixing stuff

What do you think about St. Petersburg?  Not to change the subject but since you're near by I figured I ask.

I don't know a lot about St. Pete. I have been through there a few times. From what I know, its super liberal there also if you turn down the wrong street  and you can find yourself in "the hood". My friend lives there and he loves it.

 

The best advice I can give you is to go to baynews9 and watch the local news.
