    I live in Iowa and took the class last night at the local Bass Pro Shop, took the paper work in to the local sheriffs office today and walked out with the permit in about 10 minutes. Man was that easy!

    Oh there's a background check in Iowa. But this tells you how quickly a background check can actually be completed.

    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.
