    Thumbs up Concealed Carry Permits for Veterans in Florida

    I just found out that you do not need to take the CC class if you have your DD214 from your time with the military! I did NOT know this and no one seems to want to pass it on. Check it out for yourself!

  3. Could you provide a link to the info? Thanks in advance.

    Many States accept a DD214, including my other "home state" of Montana. However, some states will only accept a 214 issued within the last "N years".
