Here in Georgia you go to the Probate Court pay the $75 fill out the paper work, then walk across the hall and get fingerprinted 5 days later they called for me to come pick up my permit. You notice I said pay the $75 FIRST!!!

In Florida you are required to take a class. Once I submitted all my paperwork and the $117 state fee by mail, it took about 3 weeks to get my permit back.

We're required to take a class, but price varies from provider to provider. It's a one evening affair.

I spent $314 not including postage. $140 to the state, $160 for the class and $14 for the finger prints. I am still waiting on the permit. Hopefully it should be here by x-mas. There were cheaper classes but mine also inlcuded range fee, ammo to qualify and lunch. In TX its a mandatory 10 hour class.

Wow that's a long class! Not that that's a bad thing though. What all was covered? Classes here in Florida vary in price as well. Mine was like $56 and it included range fee. It was bring your own gun and ammo, though, or they had rentals available. The class was a couple hours long and covered gun safety, gun laws, range time, and discussion time. Then there were the State fees on top of that of about $117 including fingerprints. All in all I paid about $175-ish.

I would hate to think what it might be like getting a permit in states like IL, CA, MA, etc. I think they are pretty reasonable here in ID.
