non resident Florida ccw question
Im looking to get my non resident Florida ccw permit and I know a firearms safety course is required, but I was wondering if it has to be a handgun specific course. I completed a NRA Basic Rifle course back in 2008, and I was wondering if that would meet the requirement? I was hoping to save some money and not have to take another course.

Even with a well padded DD-214, I still took a NRA Cert Instructor Class for Revolver/Semi-Auto (mostly to drag my son along and observe him) and FL will accept any resaonable NRA Safety/Instruction Course - but, the DD-214 is king!
You can get a very reasonably priced NRA course from most instructors if you call them and work a deal. Which means, they will instruct you and evaluate you, but you cannot be a moron.
Best of luck to ya!
