So I had some time today and finally stop by this place in town to check it out. Waiting on my CCW (hopefully next week) so I go to check the facility and hold a couple of pistolas. Unbelieveably friendly people, nice setup, nice selection of toys to peruse and a bar and grill attached to it. I almost cried. You can rent pistols starting at $10 for the day but you cannot bring your own ammo or target. Box of 50rds of 9mm is 12.99. I have to say that I did hold a few pistols (a G17, G19 and a Canik TP9-SA). My big paw is crammed around the G19 grip but the other two pistols felt comfy. Oh - and there is a gun show in town this weekend. Life in a free country is good. http://www.frogbones.com/

How long is it now to get a CCW in Florida?
When I lived there I think mine was like three weeks beginning to end.

It used to take 3 -5 weeks but after Obama got elected a second time so many people are applying it takes up to 3 months...........but still an easier process than NY. Take your 2 hour class fill out 2 page form (not requiring references or personal endorsements or notification to your spouse) attach your passport picture and mail it in and wait. I had all this stuff done within 2 days. I do not think they increased their processing staff which is why it takes longer.

Well... Mine in NH took 0 days!
Went to the PD, showed him my non-res NH license and he said you are fine with that until I mail you the resident one. He printed a letter for me to say mine was n process but my non-res is effectively Res.

On another note the house and senate passed constitutional carry.... dBag liberal gov says she will veto.... Let's see if they can over ride that veto!

Yes Tonto - I left NY but I come back regularly to remind myself how good I have it now. My CCW came in the mail yesterday - yeeeeeeehaaaaawwwwwwwwwww! And I promptly went out to the gun show here at the end of the day to bask in Remoil and Frog Lube. I saw the Keltec KSG going for $799 and multiple Glocks under $500. The next gun show will be here in September (others in August will require a 2 hour drive). I am finding that there are quite a few manufacturers in central FL.
