    CHL question

    Guys I am a resident of Georgia. I plan on getting
    my CHL when I come back to the States. Just wondering..
    you all know I travel alot..

    If I get my CHL in Georgia, and then I end up moving
    to Florida, or some other state..do I have to start
    over again? or can I transfer this license?

    My understanding is that if you change your residency you will have to go through the new state's process. I could be wrong, but that is my thought.

    Correct. Reciprocity is only good between the resident of a state and other states that will accept that resident's CHL while they are visiting the other state(s). Once residency has been established in another state, then you must get a new CHL in your new state of residency.

    Once you move you have to get a CHL in the new state of residency. I have had to do that 3 times now.

    If that is true, then why do so many get multiple state CCW permits?

    a.) Because they visit a lot of states while traveling?
    b.) Because they like to collect them?
    c.) All of the above

    Since Georgia apparently doesn't issue non resident permits, you will not be able to convert your permit from resident to non resident status.

    So, like others have said, you get to start the process over again with the state of Florida. The good thing is that more states honor the FL permit than the GA. One plus to the move.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Once you establish resident status in another state your previous resident permit is void. You will need to follow your new states law as to requirements for a permit. Some states waive training requirements if you hold a permit from another state. Some states (not sure about Florida) have a minimum residence time requirement before you can apply.

    Just get a non-resident Florida permit, Georgia honors it as far as my research. I think then you can just convert it into a resident permit later. Most states honor a Florida Non-resident, there are a few that dont. If you dont move to florida you still have a widely accepted permit for other states.

    Yes. Over the years, I’ve had an Alabama, Georgia, and now a Florida one.

    Each time you move to a new state, you have to get their CCL. Although the application usually does not list it, I always put a copy of my other states CCL in the application packet.

    I'm guessing that you're in the military. If that's the case and you get stationed in Florida you're not automatically a resident. As long as you keep your Georgia residency and driver's license you shouldn't need to change permits. However, Florida's permit is accepted by far more states especially a resident permit.
