In late January I printed the app for the Fla ccw and had the print cards mailed to me. Cards came in 5 days. Went to the 7th to get finger printed. No problems there and cost $20. Went to CVS got pics taken and mailed app with all paper work on 1/31/12. Fla cashed my check on 2/9/12. Permit issued 2/20/12 and I received it in my mail box yesturday 2/27/12. So just a little less then a month from the time I mailed it out. Not bad at all and its a HARD PLASTIC card too. Not some arts and crafts permit from NCPD. Really don't see how this pc of paper will last for years. Get your act together NY.
