    Just an FYI for interested guys and gals out there.

    I'm a Virginia resident but own a vacation home in Florida. On a recent trip to Florida I stopped in and had my fingerprints scanned, completed the simple one page application (requires a passport photo) and submitted the application to the proper authorities. I received my residentlicense yesterday in 17 days including mail time. The license has my photo, and all pertinent information professionally encased in plastic. The license looks very much like a Virginia driver's permit.

    The entire process was painless and efficient. Florida really has their stuff together when it comes to concealed licenses.

    Anyone interested in obtaining a Florida license should not hesitate...Painless !!!

    I was told that a Florida CC permit is accepted by more states than that of Virginia.....

    Any breakdown that you know of?

    BTW: What was the cost?

    I paid $39.00for the scanned prints and $75.00 for the actual Florida license.

    I now have Virginia, New Hampshire, and Florida. I'm semi-retired and travel quite a bit and these three states have me covered in most all the places Ivisit.

    The hard part is remembering the different "laws" of all the states involved. I keep a current working file of all the reciprical states and their laws....always review it in depth before I travel.
