    Question When/why did FL stop recognizing non-resident permits from other states?

    Several months ago I noticed on Packing.org, and subsequently verified on the FL website, that FL no longer recognized non-resident permits issued by other states. This discovery was a bummer for me, as I was about to go on a business trip to Tallahassee and had planned to carry using my NH non-resident permit.

    Can any Floridians shed light on when and why this change was made?

    Thanks in advance.

    Florida has never honor permits issued to non residents. Florida has only honor permits issued to residents of the states they honor. New Hampshire, Florida, Michigan, South Carolina and West Virginia are the states that only honor permits issued to the residents of the states they honor.

    I've got paperwork from FL for a non-resident permit, so they do issue to non-residents.

    They issue to non-residents. I've got one myself, but the only non-res permits they honor are Florida non-res permits.

    So Florida's gona Kalifornia on us now, only honoring their own permits? Wow. I thought FL had reciprocity with a lot of states (like my Texas permit used to be good there).

    When did I miss this? That's a major, major step back.

    Florida recognizes a lot of states' resident permits, just like always. They'll issue a Florida permit to someone from any state, just like always. They won't honor another state's non-resident permits, just like always.

    If you want to pack in Florida, you need your own state's permit (Florida recognizes most of them) or a Florida permit.

    Ahhhh, I misunderstood then. Thank you.

    I always see doom and gloom when it comes to this kind of thing.

    OK, thanks for the correction. When I got my NH permit several years ago, I was under the impression that it would be good in FL also.

    Sorry for the confusion. Carry on.

    A Confusing Issue

    Florida, to the best of my knowledge, has never recognized "triangulated permits". Essentially, for Florida to recognize a permit, you must 1.) be a resident of the state that issued the permit and, 2.) your resident state permit must be on the list of that Florida recognizes through it's permit review process.

    The states of South Carolina, Michigan, New Hampshire and West Virginia operate in the same way.

    You do not have a Florida 'non-resident Permit...
    You have a Florida Permit (just like mine), but you have an address that is out of state...Florida has only one kind of permit...

    Small point...

    NOOO...

    Florida recognizes a FLORIDA permit that Florida issues to out-of-staters.
    It recognizes numerous permits issued by other states. But not out-of-state permits issued to people from other states.

    Here:

    Joe lives in NC. He gets himself a Utah out-of-state permit. Florida will not honor it, but it WILL honor Joe's NC permit.

    It goes like that.

    (Actually, I'm not sure exactly which resident permits FL honors, but if NC is honored by FL, then the example would be true to life, if not just in principle.)

    I don't know, the Palmetto State won't accept my permit. So, when I go to visit friends in Aiken, we have to stay in Augusta and let them come to me.

    We are a peacable journey state with liberal laws in that respect. Even for those that have yet to recieve recipricousy passing through is easy and so is carry into a motel hotel and even rest stops and state parts, even without the ability to conceal carry. I know it ain't enough. But we working on it...

    And remember that North Augusta is in SC.... home of James Brown... AOWWWWW! I feel Good!
