Due to the wonderful advice on this informative website, i just received my PA carry license and the entire process took less than 14-days from start to finish. I guess the FL license is the next project. Thanks again for passing along the good info.

Glad to hear you got your license quickly. I got mine in 8 days from the time I mailed it. Mine is from Centre county. May I ask what county you applied for yours in? Would like to pass as much good info as I can to other shooters I know.

Nope.
Most states and agencies are using electronic figerprinting these days.
If you're in Fla, there are a lot of places.
In NY, you have to make some calls.
Get busy though.
They're (always) coming for our rights.

Congrats!

So does your LTC say reason: "protection"?
I thought in PA, you had to have a NY lic with no restrictions, not "to and from the range", to get a LTCF.

A few months back I just went to my local SCPD precinct. They asked why I wanted the fingerprints. I told them for the Florida gun permit and they asked for $10, my drivers license and the blank fingerprint cards. A few minutes later, I was called and a civilian(?) took my fingerprints. The room where I was fingerprinted was dedicated to taking fingerprinting for background checks. The process was quick, pleasant and painless. I was told to hold on to my receipt for $10 so that, in case the fingerprints were rejected by Florida, they would reprint for free with the receipt.

Just call your local precinct. When I asked, they told me to come any time 7x24 for fingerprinting, but you should call ahead to confirm.

20 years back the fingerprinting for background checks at the precinct used to be done in the arrested persons holding area and you had to wait for the holding area to be empty before they would take you there to be fingerprinted.
