In Georgia its called the GA Firearms License (GFL) and there is no training requirement. Go down to the county probate court, get fingerprinted, pay $43, and wait up to 60 days to receive.

Interesting that here in GA you need a GFL to carry open or concealed. The NICS check is waived with a GFL so buying a handgun is very quick & painless...

PA License to Carry Firearms.
Fill out application, drop off at sherrifs office with fee (approx $25)
They do backround check.
Usually within 2-3 weeks pick up your license. Take photo with you if you want it on your card, it's valid without though.
You're good for 5 years.
Renewel, pay fee &get new card.
PA is a "Shall Issue" state

I live in Wisconsin. We don't have concealed carry. I have my Florida CCL and have just sent the paperwork for my Utah CCL. Florida's are done through their Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Go here for details.

Concealed Weapons or Firearm Program - Division of Licensing, FDACS

You need to prove proficiency, my NRA "Expert" rating did that, get fingerprinted, fill out a form and send it with the money. That's it.

Utah required a class and range test, which I did here in Wisconsin with a Utah approved instructor. Fingerprint form, test results from class, and send it in with the fee.

With these two permits, I can carry almost anywhere that out of state permits are recognized. I can't carry concealed in my own state, but I can in about 30 or 35 others.

Handgunlaw.us has complete instructions. Basically submit $117, a set of fingerprints taken by your local PD, and proof of "firearms safety training" that can be as little as a hunter safety card or scorecard from an organized formal shooting match.

I'm from Missouri and getting my CCW involved taking a mandated 8 hour class involving legal use of deadly force, firearms safety and marksmanship, and firing seventy rounds including a 20rd qualification target. The qualification target is a B27 and the student must hit 15 out of 20 shots at 7yds. Once the class is completed, one goes to the sheriff, pays $100, is fingerprinted, and back ground checked. It took me one week for the sheriff to issue following date of application. It can take as long as 45 days maximum. Once issued, one takes the certificate issued by the sheriff to the local DoR office (Driver's license) and either has the endorsement added to one's DL or (if requested) gets a non-driver ID with the CCW endorsement.

Go to any Gun Show or Gun Shop/Range and sign up for the course.

Cash bucks and about 6 hours of training (done in one weekend day) and you're GTG.

AND, if you want to cut the 90 day wait in half for processing, hand deliver your application to your regional office.

In Mississippi you pay 30.00 for fingerprints and 100.00 for initial license and wait 120 days when I did it but now I hear it is 60 days now

Here in SD:
- 10 minutes at the Sheriff's dept
- background check
- paid $10
- left with temporary permit in hand
- official card from the state came in the mail a couple weeks later, good for 4 years

Pretty painless
