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.

Like I said in my first post, they give you a unique tracking number that allows you to track the application. Of course I have been checking every so often. Today the message changed from "app submitted and being processed" to "your license has been issued and is on it's way".

 

39 days from going to the gun show for the class to the license being issued and on its way.

Yep... a buddy of mine is a NC CCW instructor - he's in Raleigh if you need a place to go.

I filed my FL non resident, and it went real quickly.  They also gave the tracking number but I never checked it and the permit was here before I realized it. 

 

Get your FL non resident CCW!

P.S. Where are you located in Tampa?  I have property in New Port Richey.

I just moved to FL and took a CCW course a local Shooting Center.  It was the advanced course and lasted 2 hours with a short demo of your own personal firearm safety in order to get the completion certificate.  For an additional few bucks, I think it was $25, they print you and you should be good to go.

 

Fast forward 6 weeks from the course completion and this week I get a notice that my package was incomplete.  It seems the LEO taking my prints forgot to sign and date the form.  Now I have to go back and get the fingerprints redone.  PITA but it's still life in a FREE STATE.  I think my 90 day clock was just suspended and doesn't need to restart.

I mailed back my signed fingerprint card (had to get it redone and sit through most of the CCW class again waiting for the LEO to arrive). The original was unsigned by the LEO.   It went back on Monday, April 10.  I don't think they restart the 90 day clock.  I expect it to be more like 30 days until they resolve this and issue the license.  We'll wait and see.
