    Orlando Sentinel Had this in their headlines, although I think this might be a little late, considering I heard they hired more people a while back, or were at least working on it...
    Also, I was at a Political rally last night, Senator Carey Baker was there, and he stated the Concealed Weapons License holders were somewhere in the 900,000's!! That got a lot of cheers! Interesting read though, just figured I'd share. :wavey:
  2. Our young, female admin in my group, a member of the Florida Young Republicans, went for training, has the paperwork ready to go, except for the fingerprints. She doesn't even own a firearm yet, but wanted her CCW just in case.

    They didn't do her FP's at the class?? Odd... I submitted my paperwork last Monday... This is going to test my patience I know lol

    I'm pushing my fiance to take the class, I think everyone should take it, knowledge is power, regardless if you're going to carry or not, I think if you own a weapon, or think you may, you should take it.

    The fingerprints must be done by law enforcement - not all instructors are LE.

    Yes, it's been almost 30 days since I submitted my paperwork... I'm getting the itch real bad now, I can't wait for it to show up... unfortunately, it might not come soon enough, as a friend of mine and I are planning a trip down to Miami, and I'd really like to have it with me then, but I guess it'll have to remain in the vehicle, or just at home.

    You can save some time by getting electronic fingerprints - They are submitted to the FBI at the same time they go to the state. Can cut the wait time in half.

    Not all police stations or Sheriff offices have the equipment - Call around.
