    Florida CCW listed as 'Resident only'

    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?

    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? =)

    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.

    Yup. Must be a CHL holder in your own state of residence, in order for FL to recognize (via reciprocity) your state's CHL.

    Actually that portion hasn't changed. If you are from Tennessee and have a Tn. CCL, it is good in Fl. If you are from Tn. and have a Utah Non Res CCL, It is no good in Fl. Heck, if you are from Fl. and have a non res Ut permit only, It is no good in Fl.

    Yeppers it is true. Fl does not accept non-res ccl from any states.
    One more step and it's on!
