    Ohio vs Florida CCW Class

    I moved from Ohio to Florida about 7 months ago. I knew the two states had reciprocity, but didnt realize I had to transfer my Ohio to Florida within 30 days (Florida's CCW State Resident Law).. Long story short, I retook the Florida class and WOW so different then in Ohio.

    Back up in the great white north it was 10 hours class time and 3 hour range time (give or take, it's been a while).. Down here in the southern swamp lands, it's 3 hours in class (and that's pushing it) and maybe all of 5 minutes at the range!!

    It seems the Ohio class is more geared towards "First Timers" while the Florida class assumes a past knowledge in the field of firearms.

    Why am I posting this? Because I'm on my morning coffee buzz :)

    there was no need to re-take the class. If you had the cert from the OH class that would have been fine. As you allude to just any famiarity with a gun is good here in Fl. Even a hunter safety course is good.

    I just took my NRA basic pistol class last weekend and am applying Friday. They pretty much have to go over the basics for some people in the class. There were a couple people that clearly had never fired a pistol. It really opened my eyes to the competency of the average gunowner, and I figured out that gunowner /= shooter.

    The only thing I liked about the 12 hours of class + range time is that the instructors have more than enough time to gauge if someone is competent enough to use and carry a handgun.

    Now that you took the class, I hope you apply in person at the Dept of Ag. offices. You'll have your permit in 6 days.

    As a nice bonus, when you get your Florida permit it will be recognized in more states than you Ohio permit was.

    To the OP...FL certainly makes it easy to take advantage of your 2A rights.
