I'm in the same boat. Filed my paperwork, fingerprints, etc. with the county 11/15. I was told "about 4 weeks," but a retired LEO friend said "Good luck. Everyone takes their comp time at the end of the year so things slow down quite a bit." So, each day I check the mail and try to be patient.

Duster, I'm going on 3 weeks right now. My earlier post will be updated when my CCW comes in the mail. I've heard thru the grapevine that right now they are swamped with aps. We shall see.

It wouldn't surprise me, both times I have been to be fingerprinted, there were at least 3 other people getting prints done. Did you use the hardcard or scan method?

Took me about 3 months. It's pretty standard in NY for a minimum of 3 months. I was tough waiting, but worth it.

Thats a nice thing about Florida, 90 days is the maximum. When you do electronic fingerprints, most people have an answer within a month, with a hard card, its usually 2 months.

threefortyduster, I did the electronic thing at the local Sheriff. Must have been at least 3 or 4 others there while I was there doing the same thing. The backlog statement came from the shop where I did the class. I think lots of folks are doing it now before they make any more chages here in FL. The instructor we had for class thought that maybe the regs were going to tighten up some time in the near future, who knows? Time will tell that story. Nice comparison can be made from your side of the state to mine. We shall see.
