    Visit Florida office to save time on concealed weapons permits

    Officials say qualified individuals can shorten the time it takes to get a concealed weapon license by visiting one of eight licensing division regional offices.

    Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson said Monday that he is trying to relieve congestion caused by an unprecedented number of new applications.

    Bronson estimates that applicants who apply in person can expect to receive their licenses in two to three weeks, rather than two to three months for people who mail in applications.

    I dropped my application (non-resident) in the mail when I went to Florida on September 9. One month later it issued (10/9) and I had it in my hands a few days after that.

    Much quicker than the 5 months my friend had to wait last year.

  4. Florida non-resident CCW

    All: Be ware that there are many people out there that advertise the Florida non-resident CCW. But, if you get that permit and go to, say, Colorado that accepts Florida CCW permits, you may find yourself in jail. Colorado only accepts permits issued to a permitee who is a resident in that state. In other words, your permit would be legal in Colorado if you were a resident of Florida. If you have a Florida non-resident permit and live in New Jersey you will be locked up.

    That's why its so important to use the resources here. If you click on the permit reciprocity map link under resources then on the state permit you are checking it asks if you are resident or non-resident and gives you the states where you can and cannot carry with that permit status.

    Assuming anything in the concealed carry world is always a mistake... always take the time to learn the accurate answer.

  6. Along those lines, I'm preparing a three ring binder for the car. It will include the reciprocity agreements between my non-resident permits and the states I travel to. They are available usually on the AG websites. There are LEO's out there that may not know which states are honored so at least you have something to show. Anything to avoid having to be detained.
    BTW, both FL and VA took under a month for non-resident, I mailed the last week in September 09.

    I do a lot of touring on my motorcycle ...........

    Lets say I get a non-res permit from Fla. and I am driving through Colorado ...........
    (I understand the Fla. Non-res permit won't hold water)

    Can I do an "Open Carry" ??????

  8. The "Fast Track" system at the regional offices are alot faster, 1 or 2 weeks. I mailed mine in to Tallahassee in August, i recieved my permit the day after Christmas... I found out about the new system a week after i mailed mine in! I was MAD!!! lol

  9. I was a little peeved. I mailed my app in August and just now got my permit in the middle of January. Seemed to take FOREVER, but at least it's here now. I'm telling all my friends who want a CCW to not mail it, but to stop by a regional office. It's worth the drive.

    I agreed with you.

    Let's said If I am resident of California and I had a Florida non-resident ccw permit. I can travel to AZ, NM, TX, or UT. But if I am a resident of AZ, this State of AZ honored the FLA permit. If I carry concealed firearm with a Florida non-resident permit. I would might be locked up by AZ police. It is better for a person who is a resident of AZ and get a AZ ccw permit.

    Most states rather issued to permitees who are resident in that state instead of non-resident permit because of some states have different laws and some states do have same laws.

  11. Non-Resident

    What's ironic about all of this is that my Florida permit does not say non-resident. I checked around and it appears that Florida does not make a distinction between resident and non resident. The tip off is the address. My Virginia permit does say non-resident. It shouldn't make a difference but someone decided that if you can't get a CCW in your home state you are not worthy. Most states don't care.
    One bit of good news is that my home state, NJ, which is a "may issue" state in principle and a "non issue" in practice has a bi-partisan supported bill before the legislature in favor of "shall issue". Between that and McDonalod v Chicago coming up in March, 2010 is looking like a great year for CCW.
