    Mr. Lunsford, Thank You and your Staff for expanding this service to us citizens who work during the week or have to transport family and friends.
    This is a big assistance to all of us.
    I do ask, when can we expect a one-day turn around for Fla Concealed Weapon Permit?

    Thank you and the folks working in your centers for their professionalism and great patience.
