    4 to 6 weeks in MI, but due to large increase in new applicants I would expect a few weeks longer than normal.

    A little more info for you to help.

    Mine is good for 7 years,whether that's from the start or not I don't know.They are good about sending you a renewal package and there is a grace period for renewal,butt if anything happens and you forget,whatever,you start fresh.They also send you a copy of statute 790 which should be updated with 790.033 which spanks municipalities from imposing restriction any more,very important if you're in a public park and they try busting your chops.It was always illegal but this new statute adds a penalty that never existed,and the lib cities got downright pissed because after 25 some years of harrassment and revenue from arrests the State finally said enough,we have always controlled guns outside of local buisness ordnances and your choice of up to 5 days wait on a purchase without a licence.What pissed them off is the governing board members will be fined from their personal accounts,not taxpayers,and could be fired.Gotta love that smack in the face.Anyway,it isn't a bad idea to carry that section of the law in your vehicle just in case.Believe it or not there are still cops that spew the 3 move rule for vehicle carry-no such thing,never was and people have gone to court over it.If the officer doesn't know the law and you actually do,nicely ask for his supervisor's opinion before he wastes both your time.That's a touchy deal there but it's a rare occurance if it needs done.

    Go to Florida Concealed Carry Forums ,great place for understanding the law in layman's terms and if grey areas have had a court precedence case or not.There are some grey areas too,along with misconceptions that got Zimmerman in trouble.You could spend days in just searching out the old posts before asking a question that hasn't been answered.

    Be safe man.

    Wow,less than a month isn't the norm.Don't worry,it'll come,I think their average projected timeframe is 3 months but I haven't heard of that unless they're slammed with apps.Look at the bright side,renewals don't take as long.That is unless Obozo gets his way and implements Martial Law when he's done destroying this country,then we'll have bigger worries.

    Are you a Florida resident or joint resident?

    Then you can not take possession of a handgun in FL, it will have to be sent to NY, it's a Federal thing.
