Residents Can Receive Same-Day Renewal Concealed Weapon Licenses

Scott Lunsford, Escambia County Tax Collector, announces that local residents renewing their concealed weapon license now will be able to receive their renewed card the same day upon successful submission of their application.

“We are excited to offer this additional service to our citizens,” Lunsford said. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) and providing our residents a convenient and efficient way to obtain and renew concealed weapon licenses.”

While renewal licenses will be printed in the office, new applications still will be submitted to the FDACS for final approval. The statutory turnaround time for this process is within 90 days. Licensees who are not Florida residents or who need to submit documentation of a name change will not be eligible to receive a renewal license on site. The applications still can be submitted through our office, but FDACS will print and mail the new license.

Currently, only our Warrington office, 4051 Barrancas Avenue, Suite A, provides concealed weapon licensing services. Appointments for concealed weapon license applications and renewals can be made here or by visiting
