Default Florida?

Has anyone applied for their chl for florida in the last 6 months?

How long was the wait? Did you do livescan or FD-258?


Asking so I know what the time line is.

Not in the last 6 month, but four years ago it took 33 days from the time they received the package to the time they issued a license. I received it 5 days later.

Livescan is CA-only thing. FD-258 is the only way. I went to a local PD, it was something like $20 or $25.

Same here about 2 years ago.

Somebody school me. If one has an Arizona permit, why bother with Florida, unless one is travelling to Florida? The only state the FL permit adds is FL.

You are correct....

Also, if someone has say an Arizona CWP and intends on moving there in the near future (same for Utah CFP) then I would not bother with Florida, because once you move and become a resident of the state that issued your permit (AZ/UT) you will then be good to go for Florida without the Florida permit.

Very hard to find an LE agency that will do fingerprints right now because of covid, so I wouldn’t even bother with Florida for the time being. Better get an Az CCW they don’t care who does your prints

Really? I called all the police departments and sheriffs departments in two different cities and was told that Covid regulations now prevent them from doing fingerprints

Edit: congrats on the permit
