    license question

    I just sent off my packet to the state of Texas for my CHL. I was wondering if it would be possible to send in a Florida request to the state of Florida before I received my Texas CHL? Since Florida is getting theirs out faster than we can right now.

    Yup, you should be able to get a non resident permit from Fla. without trouble.

    My FL non-res was very quick. I also have a CO res. Some states won't accept a non-res permit.

    +1 on Sixto's assessment. Florida is a MACHINE, just cranking out those CWFL's in 45 to 50 days (assuming all your ducks are in a row and you are a law abiding citizen). Plus the added bonuses of being valid in Las Vegas, good for seven years, and signed by Charles Bronson!

    MP45Fan- I just went to handgunlaw.us and did the link for non res. I just wanted to get the FL license to have for a backup to the TX one. As some states don't recognize the TX but they will the FL. I know some don't recognize the non-res wont be a problem for long.

    I don't know about that ... last I heard is that Utah is pushing the limit of their two month (60-day) allowed turnaround, and I'm on week 5 of waiting for mine.

    Should be here on or before September 11, though (fitting, right?).

    Go onto Google, and type Florida conceal carry permit. One of the first hits you see will reference DOACS. That's what your looking for..

    Glock27/ KaBar TDI/ MTAC Holster. I have more also, but this combination works well..

    What for? Is Florida that much better than ours that it justifys the effort? Arent we about equal on reciprocity?
