    Question about reciprocity

    Hi all. It has been a while since I checked resaprosity between owning a FL CCW and living in CO. Use to be a FL ID was good enough. However, today I was told CO does not recognize a CCW from other states. In fact the guy said CO does not have resaprosity with any states. If this is true it may be a new ruling. How can I find out for sure if my FL CCW is still accepted in CO?

    re: Question about reciprocity

    Search the "reciprocity" at handgun law.us

    And CCW stands for Concealed Carry Weapon.

    Good luck.

    Just a guess, but what I think you are saying is that you live in CO and have a FL license.
    Perhaps what you were told (if correct) is that residents of CO must have a CO
    license and not rely on an out of state license when in CO.

    I don't know if that is CO law, but I'd not be surprised if it is.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    Right on the front page of handgunlaw.us, it says that in the yellow states "Permit holder must be resident of state they honor."

    I may be misinterpreting this, but I understand it to mean that Colorado honors a Florida CC license only if one is a resident of Florida.

    That's how I interpret it also.

    CO does not recognize any non-resident license. you must be a resident of the state which issued your license. (SOURCE: Concealed Carry Resources, Maps and Forums - USA Carry AS OF 11/28/12)
    There are two types of people who carry concealed weapons...Responsible ones and Irresponsible ones...which are you...

    If you are a Florida RESIDENT, your Florida license it recognized and honored by Colorado. If you are not a Florida resident, your Florida license is not recognized or honored in Colorado.
