    CO does not accept permits from:

    WOW am I mad.

    Colorado Bureau of Investigation

    This statute states that CO does not recognize out of state permits that are issued to non-residents of the issuing state. i.e. if I apply to get a FL permit I am not legal in cc for CO because I am a resident of CO and not FL.

    SOOOO the jerks at the gun show last month who sold me on the idea of getting a FL permit (more states with reciprocity) either don't know what they are talking about or just royally screwed me over.

    just a word of warning to anyone else who goes to the monthly gun show and is tempted to take a concealed carry class there. the class is fine, just don't waist 60 bucks for them to fingerprint you and 117 bucks to send off your app to FL.

    *update

    got off the phone w the guy who owns the class thing; he is usually there and was not on my date of class. he says instructors and cbi guy do know about this law and should have been clear about it.

    cbi guy was not. i specifically asked him if the fl permit was valid in co. he said yes. (and yes it is if you are a fl resident, but seeing how this was a co show...)

    so in summary i think the class is still money well spent, JUST be more aware of the law going into it than I was.

    If you have a Colorado permit you are still good to go in CO. Your FL. permit just adds to your out of state places you can carry.

    correct, i was (wrongly) under the impression that the FL permit would be valid for a CO resident in CO.

    just a pain in my butt for having waited 30 days already for my FL permit and now having to apply for my CO permit. grr

    Take responsibility for yourself, don't blame some jerk at a show unless he forced you to sign up.

    Do your own research a Colorado permit and a Nevada permit gives you more than the Colorado and the Flordia. The number of states really does not matter if you travel to specific places that do not honor the permit(s) you have.

    Also, I suggest you read the Colorado statutes and the laws of any state you plan to carry in. Do not relie on what someone else says, you are the one in hot water not the guy who may have given you bad advise.

    +1, unless someone who gives you advise on legal issues is an attorney, you can't hold them liable for that advice, good OR BAD.

    point taken

    i don't 'hold them liable', but i think a class on the subject should be clear about something like that. And, i was reading the laws (how i figured this situation out) and was posting in case it hadn't been clear to someone else in the same situation.

    i do think i was misled by the person involved, but probably not intentionally. i also understand ultimately it is my responsibility to learn this stuff (ignorance of the law is no excuse, etc)

    either way, it's an easy fix, just frustrated that if i had figured this out a month ago i could be 30 days into the wait for my CO permit as well.

    As you've already learned, do your own research. Nuff said about that.

    My suggestion would be about a year before your Florida license expires, take a Utah class and apply for a Utah permit. You'll pick up two additional states over the Florida license (Washington & Minnesota) and the Utah permit is less than $70.00 initially (compared to $117.00 for Florida) and only $10.00 to renew (compared to $107.00 for Florida).

    According to Handgunlaw, no they don't issue non-res permits.

    No, CO. does NOT issue non-res permits. Colorado is a shall issue to residents state, and a does not issue to non residents state.

    CO law changed within the last year.
    It used to honor other state's permits, and then it changed to having to be a resident of the issuing state.
    It's possible that the person who told you, just hasn't come up to speed yet.

    Otherwise, as stated already, (and you know.) you are responsible to verify the laws yourself.
    Handgunlaw.us is always a good place to start.

    Enjoy your FL permit, when it arrives. (But ya gotta go out of state to do that.)
    Get your CO permit now.

    I went with the FL permit b/c I could get one without the class, just need a DD214. It also doesn't show up on my DMV report. The bulk of the classes are basic firearm instruction, not letter or application of the law or scenario discussion - I get that online.

    I had a similar situation two years ago when I traveled to Florida. I'm a Missouri resident with a Utah permit, but Florida did not honor Utah permits issued to non-residents. Needless to say, I felt like I was walking around St. Augustine without my pants on the entire time I was there.
