True. I was expecting 90 days, but got mine in about half the time.

I'd still plan on 90. You can call the state and ask the status of the application you sent in as well.

Mine took about 60 days.

I've heard of 45 days.

EFP is the way to go, but wasn't available when I first got mine.
Renewals are a snap provided you don't move to a new address and neglect to notify the PO.

I get renewals in about 30 days.

I did mine via EFP with a buddy, he got his in 7 days I got mine in 10. A couple of friends just got theirs last month. They took about 7-10 days too.

I was reading on packing.com that you can use your DD214 (military paperwork) instead of a ccw class. Does anyone know if that is true and does something specifically need to be on it?

True.

You're good to go with a DD214 as is, nothing additional.

I did mine with EFP , had to go back do it again, but even with the 10 days of delay caused by the bad EFP scan I got mine in 3 weeks.

Your Sheriff is WRONG.

Once you become a Florida resident, your out-of-state permit is no longer recognized.

Florida will only recognize an out-of-state permit IF you are a resident of that state.

http://licgweb.doacs.state.fl.us/news/concealed_carry.html

QUESTION 5. I have a concealed carry permit from one of the states with which Florida has reciprocity, but I am not a resident of that state. Can I carry legally while visiting a Florida?

No. Florida, like Michigan and New Hampshire, has a residency requirement in its reciprocity law. Florida does not recognize non-resident concealed carry permits from other states.

EDIT: Per FS790.015(3) - If the resident of another state who is the holder of a valid license to carry a concealed weapon or concealed firearm issued in another state establishes legal residence in this state by registering to vote, or making a statement of domicile pursuant to s. 222.17, or filing for homestead tax exemption on property in this state, the license shall remain in effect for 90 days following the date on which the holder of the license establishes legal state residence. This section applies only to nonresident concealed weapon or concealed firearm licenseholders from states that honor Florida concealed weapon or concealed firearm licenses.

In other words, you have the 90-day state time for issuing a new permit before yours expires. You move here, you'd better apply for a Florida permit. My bad on the initial post.

Right now, ink prints are running about 8 weeks for the permit.

I received all the paperwork months ago, but have been sitting on it.

I am on active duty, and so haven't received a DD214 yet. What other paperwork would satisfy the training requirement?

Anybody?

Send a copy of your .mil ID. That confirms basic and firearm training.

You have to call around to the various stations, get the schedule too. Bring exact cash to really keep it simple.

licgweb.doacs.state.fl.us/CWCS/elecfingerprintinfo.html

17 days (including weekends) for me.

With electronic fingerprints it took 12 days total from the time I mailed off the package. I included a photocopy of my military ID at the time and a copy of my FL hunter's education card. If anybody uses the electronic fingerprints just be aware that some Sheriff's Departments don't accept payment and you pay FDLE the fingerprint fee over the internet using a credit card. That is in addition to sending the DOA their $75 fee.

I went to a small rural Sheriff's Department in my hometown for the EFP and they didn't know what the hell I was talking about. I showed them the paperwork and they said sure, took me to the booking area and transmitted the prints to FDLE. They didn't collect any money for it so I had to pay FDLE directly. The directions are all right there in the paperwork.
