    Does anyone use a Non-Res as their primary?

    Anyone out there that decided to use a non-resident permit in lieu of their home-state's? I know Florida requires their own permit within 90 days, but I imagine there are other states that will honor out-of-state licenses used by their own residents.

    What are the reasons for doing this?

    I am using a FL permit as my primary right now. In LA our permit wasn't accepted in Arkansas for many years so the gun shops in the north end of the state were pushing FL permits over the LA permits so many use them up there. I want the LA permit I just haven't been able to find the time and the class schedule and mine matching up so I can take the classes. FL accepted other education I already had for their license.

    LA accepts permits from a state that will accept the LA permit. There is not residency requirements....yet.

    I live in Kansas City, Missouri. For the first year or so after CCW was enacted in Missouri, the Jackson County Sheriff refused to process applications or issue permits so I carried on a Florida permit.

    I only broke down and got a Missouri permit when it became apparent that Kansas' CCW was going to go through and they don't honor non-res permits.

    I also have a friend that had a misdemeanor weapons charge many years ago (the proverbial judged by 12 instead of carried by 6) which made him ineligible for Missouri's permit, but was good to go by Florida's standards.

    Ditto here on raytracer's comments.
    I, for example, cannot get an NC permit (state of residency), but can get a VA and FL non-resident permit (and have done so) and both are honored by NC.

    Thanks for the answers... so the question continues with:

    Any trouble with law enforcement for not having a local permit (or carrying even though disqualified for a resident permit)?

    This is kind of a continuation of my loophole post, and though I'm happy that it sounds like a friend may be able to carry, I'm a bit suprised that so many states have such an obvious hole in their laws!

    I live in OH and the only permit I have is FL.

    Never been stopped while carrying.

    I do this because at the time, FL non-res permit was honored by CO, which I visit frequently. So I got it instead of OH.

    Now CO does not accept non-res permits. They still don't accept OH, so why bother getting it.

    THIS IS NOT A LOOPHOLE!!!!!

    Carrying a firearm is a right of the people. The guberment is just creating a money making beuracracy by licensing how you dress when you are armed.

    In most states:

    Carrying OWB with shirt tucked in, legal.

    Carrying OWB with shirt untucked, illegal unless you have a permit.

    I have a FL permit - doesn't show up on a DL search if I'm pulled over. No need to be yanked from my car at gunpoint by an overzealous cop if avoidable. In MO there's no requirement to disclose unless asked.

    Just as an added FYI, Florida does not recognize any non-res permits.

    So if you move to Florida, your old permit is not valid in Florida, since you no longer reside in the jurisdiction where your permit was issued.

    My only permit is FL, because the People's Soviet of Maryland doesn't deem my life worthy of self-protection.

    Kinda, the last post was information about if doing so was legal... this post is asking who else does it and why. I thought a different question warranted a new post? Sorry for the inconvenience if I'm wrong. Thanks for the input anyways guys, I'm trying to help out a buddy.

    Until yesterday, I figured everyone did or was required to have a local permit. Learn something new...
