If you have a non-resident Florida permit and visit Florida, you're fine. If you have a non-resident Virginia (for example) permit and visit Florida, you are not covered.
Make sense now? =)
This is a discussion on Florida CCW listed as 'Resident only' within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I was just on handgunlaw.us and it shows on the little map that florida only honors licenses of people who are residents of said state. ...
I was just on handgunlaw.us and it shows on the little map that florida only honors licenses of people who are residents of said state. Did something change? if I have a florida CCW but dont live there, will they honor it?
yeah i just dont remember them putting it like that--it used to be purple but now its yellow like michigan
FL only honors other state's CHL that are issued to residents of that state. For example if one has a non-resident Utah license then FL does not recognize that license. There are other states which have the same rules.
I'm pretty certain the Florida change happened in the last year or so.
If the public are bound to yield obedience to laws to which they cannot give their approbation, they are slaves to those who make such laws and enforce them.--Samuel Adams as Candidus, Boston Gazette 20 Jan. 1772

Yup. Must be a CHL holder in your own state of residence, in order for FL to recognize (via reciprocity) your state's CHL.
Life is too short to be serious!
Yeppers it is true. Fl does not accept non-res ccl from any states.
One more step and it's on!
