Good news for Florida CCW holders

Effective 1 July 2016 the price for a 7 year CCW permit renewal fee dropped $10 from $60 down to $50

More good news, effective same date is new legislation no longer requiring you to sign the renewal application in front of a Notary Public and pay for that.

So a new Passport photo I got at Walmart, a check for $50 bucks and the signed form is all I needed to renew. And, of course, be and remain to be a law abiding citizen :guns: :guns:

In the mail.

    Wow! 7 years, that's great. Texas is 4 years the first time, then 5 on the renewal. But the good thing is it doesn't cost me much for renewal now since I'm a Senior, I think about $30.00, and no more having to go to class and take a test or requalify at the range. And if I did, I wouldn't care, I need the practice. This is all true as long as I don't let my CHL expire again.

    I've been debating whether or not to get a FL CHL. My Texas one will be valid long after I leave this state...

    Chief, I renewed mine earlier this year, wife's is coming due soon. Did mine at the Dep of Agriculture office in West Palm Beach. In and out under 10 minutes with license in hand. All I needed was the check and the unfilled renewal form. They filled it out, took the pic, and issued the new license. Too easy, no waiting.

    Did mine at the DMV in December. Only 4 people in the waiting room when I arrived, at least 25-30 were in the waiting room upon my leaving. The guy running the office says 70 to 100 per day was the norm.
