Thread: Non-resident process

    Non-resident process

    Hey guys,

    Do you need a CCW permit from another state in order to get a non-resident permit in Florida?

    I have a Class B LTC in Massachusetts which does not allow me to carry. If I were to apply for a non-resident permit in Florida would they deny me because of that? I am not sure of the process in Florida, and to be honest I did not really read through the Florida forum (sorry if this is a repeat issue).

    Can you guys offer any advice? Thanks and have an awesome day!

    Thanks,
    Capo

    You don't really need to have a license to get a Florida permit, you just need your NRA certificate or other proof of taking a safety course

    just apply from the Florida site and your permit will be in your hands in a few weeks.

    Actually, the only states I'm aware of that require a nonresident to have a permit from some other state are New Hampshire and Pennsylvania.

    Danvers gave me the Class B LTC

    I am going to apply for the Florida Non-Res permit. I just got all the paper work in the mail so I will fill that out and send it out. I have taken a pistol class here in Massachusetts, as well as a hunter safety course. These will be sufficient right?

    Oh I am aware of this. I just want to be able to actually carry when I go to Florida. I travel there alot actually.

    I was just nervous because I didn't want to be denied there. How long is a non-res good for there?

    No.

    A copy of your CCW instruction certificate will work. I had nonresident Nevada and Utah permits before I applied for the Florida CWP. I could have used the CCW instruction certificiate, but I decided to use my Hunter Safety Certificate, which I found buried in a drawer. It was faded, but I was able to make a decent copy. It was dated 1978. I can't believe it has been 30 years. Needless to say, it worked.
