Good deal. I would recommend going with the electronic finger prints. Tallahasee works much faster with them, and it costs the same. Should take you about three weeks after you send it in.

You said, "had to shoot a 357." In Florida, is there a range component to the licensure process? That seems like an unwarranted barrier to me.

I'd like to know more.

I already did the ink ones at the show. i figured they had everything there, photo, fingerprints, and the class. the teacher said it takes about 4 weeks to get it back.

yes there was a range portion to class. we had to show we knew how to safely discharge a firearm. only had to shoot one shot tho so nothing special.

Can anybody give me a good reason for this one? One round? What are they checking for? Are they standing in the lane with you or in the next room just waiting for you to go bang and come back?

This just seems like a silly hoop made up by anti-gun libs because they couldn't get a stronger control through their legislature.

yeah it was pretty pointless, and made it cost an extra 5 bucks. but the guy was standing next to everyone as they shot. it was to get a certificate for gun safety, which we have to send in as one of the items. so that was the reason behind it.

That must have just been a part of the specific class you took, not Florida law. I live in Florida and there was no range session required to get your CCL. As a matter of fact, if you wanted the class to include a range trip, then the class cost $35 more.

And if someone is on food stamps, maybe the state buys their single bullet? I could imagine a lefty coming up with that.

Totally off-topic, but in Oregon we have a ballot measure for legal marijuana "dispensaries." Get this...if someone has a medical mj card, the state would subsidize their marijuana purchases through this bill. Can you imagine the awesome, titanic stupidity of taxes going toward weed?
