    Out of State applicant training requirements

    I am applying for my out of state permit. I spend about three months a year in Bar Harbor. I have a permit in Florida where I am a resident. I am also active duty Army. Will a copy of my Army ID constitute proof of "knowledge of handgun safety", as per the application? How about ranger and SF training? Also, as I am not quite out of the Army (four more months till its official) do I need to acquire a DD 214? Its not clear on the application if "were a member of the US Armed Forces" means ever or currently as well. Thanks for any help, ready to knock this out. so I can carry at least part of the summer up there.

    Says "was or is in"...and had basic firearms training.

    (5) Demonstrates to the issuing authority a knowledge of handgun safety.
    The applicant may fully satisfy this requirement by submitting to the issuing
    authority, through documentation in accordance with this subparagraph, proof
    that the applicant has within 5 years prior to the date of application completed a
    course that included handgun safety offered by or under the supervision of a
    federal, state, county or municipal law enforcement agency or a firearms
    instructor certified by a private firearms association recognized as
    knowledgeable in matters of firearms safety by the issuing authority or by the
    state in which the course was taken. A course completion certificate or other
    document, or a photocopy, is sufficient if it recites or otherwise demonstrates that
    the course meets all of the requirements of this subparagraph.

    As an alternative way of fully satisfying this requirement, an applicant may
    personally demonstrate knowledge of handgun safety to an issuing authority, if
    the issuing authority is willing to evaluate an applicant's personal demonstration
    of such knowledge. The issuing authority is not required to offer this 2nd option.

    The demonstration of knowledge of handgun safety to the issuing authority
    may not be required of any applicant who holds a valid State permit to carry a
    concealed firearm as of April 15, 1990 or of any applicant who was or is in any
    of the Armed Forces of the United States and has received at least basic firearms
