FLORIDA Non-Resident Concealed Carry Permit, CCW

Recommended Posts

There is no such thing as a Florida Non-Resident CCP. Fl only issues one type permit and no longer distinguishes on the permit between resident or non resident. The application for the permit simply asks for your address and it does not matter if you are in or outside the State of Florida. As a shall issue state, if your prints confirm no criminal convictions and you take the Fl CWC course, or have alternative qualification credentials you are good to go. The Fl course is offered at many ranges in N.J. The Fl CCP only authorizes you to carry in Fl and in States which grant reciprocity(N.J. not being one of them), it does not authorize you to use the firearm and your right to use it is governed by the criminal laws in Florida and if you are in a reciprocity State, the criminal laws in that State. All of the details are posted on the internet under Fl Dept of Agriculture.

Thanks of that good info.  I thought that there are some states that only recognize Florida resident permits. (Off the top of my head, I believe SC was one.)  Has that changed?

Are more states now available with a Florida CCP?  

To the OP, Gun for Hire will do all the work for you, including fingerprinting for a fee.  Last I checked, it was under $100.

Close, some states only recognize if you are in fact a Florida resident, but again the permit does not distinguish on its face between residents and non residents. If you produce a FL DL in those states that will not recognize unless you are Fl resident that is usually how it is done.

I find the best way to apply and renew is to make an appointment at a Licensing center. They can do everything there while you wait. Fingerprints, and application.  I have a bad scar and they usually have to do my electronic prints twice.  The machine tells them right than and there if its a good print or not.  Before I got a winter home in Florida I took the class here and than made the appointment at the Licensing center. I got my License in the mail 3 weeks later. When I renewed I went back to the Licensing center and the women told me to become a Florida resident and she would than be able to give me my renewal right there on the spot.  I've never waited more than 3 weeks for my renewal to come in the mail.  I have 5 years left on my current CWFL. My next renewal I will be a Florida resident.  As others have said just be careful.  Your Florida CWFL isn't valid in some states if your not a Florida resident. https://www.fdacs.gov/Consumer-Resources/Concealed-Weapon-License/Concealed-Weapon-License-Reciprocity

I'm going to be in FL in June and plan on applying for my CWFL while there. Since the age of covid they are only doing them by appointment.

Does anyone have any idea what the lead time is for an appointment or a FL gun forum that might have members who would.

I've already checked for locations and the closest place to my brother in laws house is not doing non resident permits at this time. He's in Cape Coral. I did find a few other locations within an hours drive of there that are issuing non resident permits just wondering if anyone had any experience getting an appointment.

If you can find a law enforcement office to do your ink fingerprints you can. I work for my town and have been unable to schedule an appointment to get them done and am told all the time "we really don't do these but since you work for the town we'll do it get back to me next week"

Just tired of the run around and want to cut out the middleman.

They've always been by appointment  Check the surrounding area. I'm in Lee county. I have two offices close by.  The first time I applied  we didn't have the house yet.The only appointment that worked for me was in the Miami office.  It was a bit of a drive but worth it.

      Watch for progress on the Rogers & ANJRPC CCW case vs NJ AG, et al. 
      This was listed in another thread, but I thought it will need it's own space to avoid hijacking Rosey's CNJFO thread.

      Hi Everyone
      I just Read the article in the Political report in Shooting Illustrated about The July ruling By the US Court Of Appeals that found DC's "good reason" to be granted a CCW unconstitutional. Wouldn't the conflicting rulings between the DC Federal Court and the Jersey District Federal court force the SCOUS to a hearing to resolve the conflict? This is old news from back in July I'm just hearing about now. If its already been discussed  please direct me to the thread.
      Thanks

      Can anyone help me find the stats on how many people in NJ apply for CCLs, and how many of those applications get rejected?  
      I'm having an online argument on a military forum (I'm a retired Marine).  Some guy thinks concealed-carry-restrictive states such as New Jersey and California are not violating the 2nd Amendment since they have a process for getting a permit, my response is it is a de facto ban if the vast majority of permit applicants are denied, but it's hard to make that argument without stats to back it up.

      GAPP has another CCW class coming up. This one will be held at Shooters Sporting Center in Little Egg Harbor Township.... so all of you South Jersey shooters interested in CCW should consider coming to the class. Florida and Utah are the most sought after permits in the nation because they are among the most widely recognized. We provide all services necessary to get a concealed carry permit in both UT and FL including the applications, envelopes, passport photos, finger prints, notary seal, and UT CFP instructor seal... pretty much one stop shopping to get your CCW in multiple states. We also help you fill in the application so it wont be returned for being completed improperly. For a full course description, registration information, and other class dates, go to www.gappnj.com.

    • Forgive me for not jumping in on this earlier, I’m out of town at the moment.    I am the seller, and I had recommended J&J Gunworks.  He is local to me, and I have bought 2 firearms through him before. His transfer fee then was $45, and I didn’t think it was too unreasonable. Last one I bought was a shotgun in Nov 2019.  Frankly, I was pretty taken aback when I heard what J&J was charging for the transfer this time. Had I known he had doubled his transfer fee, I wouldn’t have recommended him. That’s ridiculous. I’d have to go back and check my purchase records, I don’t know if he charged me a 3% fee for a credit card.    The ammo thing, well honestly, I kind of get it. He doesn’t have much, and he wants to be able to sell it to people purchasing firearms from him.  To me, that’s a reasonable point.    @axeman_g, I’ll reach out to you when I get back in town. This never sat right with me.       
    • No, c'mon....  it is perfectly reasonable to walk into a place of business, start a transaction, and then after it is all started .....  only then ask about how much said transaction will be, and complain abt it. Then, doubly complain - and get upset by a snarky comment and besmirch someone on a public forum - 'cause i feel i paid to much'.   Why is it gun owners feel that everyone has to drop their drawers on pricing just because its guns or ammo?
    • Who's classes? And these times drills you speak of, where? how were they? What did you shoot?
    • Good for you.  And welcome aboard.   I started out wanting just one pistol.  I'm now in the middle of redoing my garage so I can continue playing with firearms on my lathe and milling machine.  So yeah, it goes that way.  
    • Point taken.  But let this be a lesson, always call the FFL and ask about fees.
