Welcome to the club.

Hopefully you'll never have to use it. I've had mine for more than 6yrs. Only twice have I ever had to put my hand on it, but never once have I ever withdrawn from its holster.

Simple, instead of sending in the paperwork yourself, call your local Div of Lic regional office. Make an appointment to apply for your CWL, then on said time and date bring all necessary paperwork such as training cert, DL, and a check for $117. They basically walk you through the application and take your fingerprints right there electronically. From there the application is reviewed and sent to the main office in tallahassee electronically and your lic is issued. Easy squeezy. I went to the West Palm Beach one and they were very helpful and the gentleman who helped me with my app was a firearms enthusiast himself so it was even better.

My wife got hers yesterday. She just mailed it in, as I don't think we have a regional office near us. Anyway, I was expecting it to take the full 3 months, but it was more like 7-8 weeks.

Damn I wish I had known to do that 2 weeks ago. I finally went and got my fingerprints done electronically at the local office and sent everything in. Ohh well, looks like I'm gonna have to wait a while.

Got mine last week. It took right at 8 weeks. If you go to a regional office it will take about a week. A friend of mine went that route. I wish I would of done that. Checking the mail box was like a kid getting a new toy.

I'm happy for the OP, welcome to the club, but yeah, mine took 90 days, then another 90 because the FBI needed fingerprints done again. That was over a year ago when I applied. Maybe they have cleared the backlog? I was NOT happy. I am MUCH happier now that I have it.

Brother and I are in Tally, he needs to get his done... Could he just go to the "Head Office" and get it done? Where could I find the address and phone number?

What are the current wait times looking like? I got mine a couple years ago, my gf just took the class yesterday. If she mails it with ink prints what can she expect?
