    Moving from Florida to Kentucky

    My wife and i are both getting transferred to the Lexington Kentucky office for three years we both have a Florida CCW permit I know that Kentucky honors Floridas ccw but we want to open carry some in Kentucky and from what I am reading we have to be a resident of Kentucky for six months before we can apply for a Kentucky CCW can we open carry legally in Kentucky with our current permits until we can obtain a Kentucky permit?

    I cannot answer your question on KY laws however you'd be wise to report your change of address to FLA.

    Will I have to surrender my Florida permit?

    No. After you send you change of address to the depatrment of AG, it will become a non-resident CWFL.

    Be aware that this will change acceptance in some sates.

    No permit at all is required to open carry in KY.

    Be advised, though, that Federal law makes it a felonly to carry a loaded firearm (concealed or openly) on public property within 1000' of a school in any state that you do not have that state's permit for. So, a Florida permit will not exempt you from the law in any state other than Florida. Nobody ever really concerns themselves with that law [18 USC 922 (q)(2)] because it is extremely rare that it is ever enforced, but open carrying increases your chances of drawing attention in a school zone especially if it is during school hours and even more especially if it is the time when children are arriving or departing. When I am outside of my home state of Washington I take a little bit of effort to be a bit discreet if I know I am close to a school or see that I am heading towards one.

    You might also want to be aware of this Kentucky Statute and look carefully at when the state determines you become a resident of Kentucky:

    issued by another state of the United States to carry a concealed deadly
    weapon in that state may, subject to provisions of Kentucky law, carry a
    concealed deadly weapon in Kentucky, and his or her license shall be
    considered as valid in Kentucky.
    (b) If a person with a valid license to carry a concealed deadly weapon
    issued from another state that has entered into a reciprocity agreement
    with the Department of Kentucky State Police becomes a resident of
    Kentucky, the license issued by the other state shall be considered as
    valid for the first one hundred twenty (120) days of the person's residence
    in Kentucky, if within sixty (60) days of moving to Kentucky, the person
    completes a form promulgated by the Department of Kentucky State
    Police which shall include:
    1. A signed and notarized statement averring that to the best of his or
    her knowledge the person's license to carry a concealed deadly

    valid forfeiture due to departure from the issuing state;
    2. The person's name, date of birth, citizenship, gender, Social

    address, current address within the state of Kentucky, date on which
    Kentucky residence began, state which issued the concealed carry
