This is a discussion on Nevada/Florida Sign Reciprocoity Agreement within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Nevada and Florida have signed a reciprocity agreement. Both states have posted the info on their Web sites. Handgunlaw.us will be updated to reflect this ...

Those of you who live in communist territories and have Florida permits because your state does not issue be careful: Colorado (if my memory is correct) recently changed their law to only recognize permits if you reside in the state of issue.
F350 is correct. I just checked the FL website.
I believe both FL and CO require you to be a resident of the issuing state. I always wondered how that worked with an out of state permit when you are in FL?
I was pretty sure Colorado and Florida enjoyed reciprocity long before now.
I changed the post. It was Nevada not Colorado. Trying to do to much at once. The link goes to NV and not CO. Sorry for the error.
No sweat. You're always on top of things and we all benefit from it. I was starting to wonder if they dropped reciprocity and reestablished it or some such thing.
I'm glad to hear NV is accepting FL. Now everyone has a way to pack there.
Would someone please tell Colorado and West Virginia to sign a reciprocity agreement. WVA doesn't allow out of state nor non-resident permits!!! Kinda upsets me when i go home to KY (Tri-state WV, OH, KY) to visit. The three states are so close if it wasn't for the rivers I would forget which state is which. If I get an non-res VA pemit that would get OH.
Good news for Floridians...

I I'm glad to see it, I hope that there will be many more to come. I've had my local Nevada permit, as well as Florida and Utah's, for over a year. I still have a lt of time left on them so it will be a long time before have to renew them. If Nevada signs agreements with enough states that I can let them lapse. But, since Nevada requires that the states have training equivalent to Nevada's, it may not be that many.
As far as using out of state permits in other states, there are several like that. I always look up each state’s policies before I risk getting arrested. Hopefully, it won’t be that many states that make the change. I like that I cn carry in 30 some states, including my home town of Richmond, VA.
And for those out there who want to travel to Las Vegas, you can get an out of state permit. You can also apply to the sheriff’s office of any county in Nevada, not just Clark County (Las Vegas area) and Washoe County (Reno area). Clark county tends to use all of the 120 days allowed by law, and several people have reported even longer waits. So apply to Nye County (Pahrump, a town southwest of Vegas, and only 70 or so miles away) would probably be faster.
Great news!! Now I can go back to Disney World without having to disarm! :)
I am still on the learning curve with the whole reciprocity, res/non res thingy.
Correct me if I am wrong, reading the Handgunlaw.us map,
I am a CO resident with a CO permit, and if I get a FL non resident permit, I would be OK in NV?
