Thread: Please Help...(Newb) Non-Res CCW

  1. Please Help...(Newb) Non-Res CCW

    I know that in Pa. in order to get a non-resident ccw you need to have one issued to you in your state of residence. Since NJ will not issue a ccw to anyone other than retired LE (so it seems, checking the NJ section), even trying will be waisting time and effort, not to mention having a "denied" label on your record.

    Knowing the difficulty in getting a NJ ccw, and having a current Fl. non-resident ccw permit, will the county sheriffs' office (Centre County for example) issue me (or anyone in my situation) a non resident ccw? Has anyone tried before with any success?? Thanks for your help.

    As difficult as NJ is, they are still considered an "issuing state"....and as such...PA will not issue you a non-res LTCF unless you obtain one in NJ.

    Sorry.

    Just carry with your Florida CCW! It makes no difference having a florida CCW vs. a PA LTCF, in matter of fact many residents of Philadelphia who were unable to get a PA LTCF just opts for a Florida CCW and carry in Philly anyway. It's called the "Philly loophole". If you are still worried, just print out the reciprosity agreement on the AG's website.

  5. Thanks...I was hoping for a loop hole of sorts. Yes, the Fl. CCW is the best legal alternative at this point.

    I heard through the grapevine that there was one sheriff in PA (don't know which county) that interpreted a NJ FID card as a carry permit, and therefore would issue non-resident licenses to NJ residents. I don't know if this is or was true or if it still goes on.

    UT would work as well. Initial cost would be about the same (pay for the class from a Utah CFP Instructor, and initial application fee). Good thing is that renewals are less, and you get all the states that FL offers with the addition of WA state.

    Per Fla Web Site: Concealed Carry Reciprocity - Division of Licensing, FDACS


    Concealed Carry Reciprocity
    Downloadable version of the list of Reciprocity States for your reference.


    Use the free Adobe PDF Reader software to view or print PDF forms.


    PLEASE NOTE: The reciprocity information on this page is ALWAYS CURRENT. The Division of Licensing constantly monitors changing gun laws in other states and attempts to negotiate agreements as the laws in those states allow.

    This list was last updated on February 25, 2010, when the State of WASHINGTON was added to the reciprocity list.

    NOTE: EFFECTIVE July 1, 2009, NEVADA was no longer reciprocal with Florida. Authorities in Nevada notified the Division of Licensing that as of that date Nevada would no longer honor Florida concealed weapon licenses. Therefore, in accordance with the reciprocity provision set forth in section 790.015, Florida Statutes, Florida could no longer honor concealed weapon licenses issued by the State of Nevada.

    It is important for license holders to understand that when they are traveling in or through another state they are subject to the firearm laws of that state. We have provided links to the state laws or to the licensing authorities' Web page of each of our reciprocity states so that licensees can do the necessary planning and research when preparing to travel.


    FLORIDA'S RECIPROCITY STATES
    Alabama (1,3,5)
    Alaska (1)
    Arizona (6)
    Arkansas (1)
    Colorado (1,4)
    Delaware
    Georgia (1)
    Idaho (3,6)
    Indiana (1,3,6)
    Kansas (1)
    Kentucky
    Louisiana (1)
    Michigan (1,4)
    Mississippi (1)
    Missouri
    Montana (3)
    Nebraska (1)
    New Hampshire (1,3,4,6)
    New Mexico (1)
    North Carolina (1)
    North Dakota (3,6)
    Ohio (1)
    Oklahoma (1)
    Pennsylvania (1,6)
    South Carolina (1,4,6)
    South Dakota (1,3)
    Tennessee (1,6)
    Texas (1,3,6)
    Utah (1,6)
    Vermont (2)
    Virginia (1,6)
    Washington (1,6)
    West Virginia (1)
    Wyoming (1,3)

    (1) While Florida's law allows licensees to carry stun guns, knives, and billy clubs in a concealed fashion, the laws in these states allow for concealed carry of handguns or pistols ONLY, NOT WEAPONS IN GENERAL. Florida license holders are prohibited from carrying other types of weapons while in these states.

    (2) The State of VERMONT is unique in that it does not issue weapon/firearms licenses. Florida licensees - indeed, licensed or unlicensed citizens from any state - may carry in Vermont. This presents a problem for reciprocity with Florida. Florida law provides that an out-of-state resident must have in his or her immediate possession a valid license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm. Since Vermont residents have no such license, the right to concealed carry cannot be extended to them under Florida law.

    (3) Individuals qualify for concealed weapon licenses in these states upon reaching 18 years of age. HOWEVER, any licensee of these reciprocity states who is not 21 years of age or older IS PROHIBITED from carrying a concealed weapon or firearm in Florida.

    (4) These states will honor the Florida concealed weapon license ONLY IF the licensee is a resident of the State of Florida.

    (5) The Attorney General's Office of the State of ALABAMA has indicated that Alabama will honor BOTH resident and non-resident Florida licenses. However, the Alabama Attorney General notes that there is some uncertainty as to the limits of Alabama's reciprocity law as it pertains to non-resident licenses. Pending clarification by the Alabama Legislature or a decision by an Alabama court, he urges non-resident Florida license holders to exercise caution. Refer to the Alabama AG's Web page for the latest information.

    (6) These states issue concealed carry licenses to qualified individuals who are non-residents. These non-resident permits cannot be honored under Florida's reciprocity provision.

  10. I know a town....

    Adalanto is a little town near Victorville, California about 18 years ago the Chief of Police began issuing carry permits. It took a FBI check and $115.00 application fee. If the applicant was free of priors he would issue the permit. He did this to bolster the towns treasury. They also had a poker casino that brought in many dollars. Whether or not the Chief is still there or if he's still issuing permits, I don't know. But somebody should talk him into running for Governor
