As of 1 July, 2017, the fee for obtaining a Florida Concealed Carry Permit has been reduced by $5. From cbemeraldcoast.com:
The new fees have not been listed on the pdf fee schedule at the Florida Department of Agriculture, yet. The fees listed show a fingerprint fee of $42, license fee of $60, for a total of $102 for the initial license.
Florida residents will save $5 on application fees, down from $60 to $55, and renewal fees, down from $50 to $45, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Active law enforcement officers, correctional officers and correctional probation officers can now obtain a new license for $55 and renew their licenses for $45.
This is the third time concealed weapon license fees have been lowered within the last five years, which has saved people a total of $20 when applying for or renewing a Florida concealed weapon license. Concealed weapon licenses are valid for seven years.
An applicant also must provide a passport type photograph for a few more dollars. Passport photographs as Walgreens and CVS cost $12.99.
With the $5 reduction in fees, a Florida permit can be had for $109.99, and the cost of sending in the application, fingerprint card, and photograph. Judges get there CCW for free, and Florida police and retired police get discounts, as shown in the chart. Florida expedites the processing of permits for active duty military and veterans.

Should be $6. Revolvers will be more popular.
Florida used to be the best out of state license for out of state travel until Utah revamped their program a few years ago. I wonder if the lower Utah price helped promote this change.
Any permit requirement at all is a clear infringement on the rights recognized in the second amendment.
I am so jealous!
Wow, you mean the unconstitutional permission slip office is requiring smaller bribes??
It is a sort of progress, I suppose.
