  1. FL CCW holder now living in VA, what do I need to do??

    I have a valid Florida CCW permit but I recently moved to Virginia. Both states do reciprocate with each other but I am wondering if I need to get another CCW for my new home state of Virginia. Any help would be appreciated.

    Let me start by saying that I am not a lawyer or LEO, but I would suggest you jump through the hoops and obtain a Virginia CCW permit, and surrender your Florida permit to Florida unless Virginia wants to take your Florida permit and they notify Florida that you are no longer a resident of Florida. It would be similar to drivers license when you change residence. Both states that I have had a permit in require tht you notify of any change of address. Moving out of state meets that requirement. Virginia may have a grace period where they will accept your Florida training, and treat issue of a CCW permit as a "Renewal." Check into it further to save yourself a lot of trouble and embarrassment.

  4. He should be able to contact Florida and get his resident permit changed to a non-resident. That lets him continue to have reciprocity with Alabama, Georgia, Kansas, and Washington, which don't honor a VA permit, but do honor a FL non-resident. (May not visit Washington or Kansas often, but moving from Florida to Virginia implies he probably has reason to at minimum pass through Georgia and/or Alabama once in a while.)

    This site will give you the info for VA http://www.vsp.state.va.us/Firearms.shtm

    Go here to change the address on your FL permit: https://licgweb.doacs.state.fl.us/license/chgaddr790.html. It will change the address on their records so they know where to send you the renewal info. They probably wont send an "updated" permit because they no longer print addresses on the permit.

  6. Thanks for the good info, I appreciate it.
