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.
