It looks like we will be moving to SWF in the next few months. I have a CCW from another state that Fla. recognizes. What is the process of getting a CCW in Fla. if you have one from another state or does this not matter? If anyone knows the process I would appreciate it.

Never had one. Don't know what one is. . . Are they good? All the bars here serve Yeungling now, everyone recognizes them - that's what I drink.

if you are not disqualified under the law it is really pretty easy. take a course and submit the paper work. if you are a veteran and have a dd214 you do not need the course. punta gorda has an office down there a couple blocks from fishermans village. you can do the application there as well as finger prints. doing it that way decreases the waiting time from mailing it in.

CCW? not every one is familiar with all these letters to denote words.
is it that much trouble to just type out whole words?

Concealed Weapon? Google CCW/ reciprocal for Florida and you'll probably find the correct answer if that is what you're asking.

I understand how to get one from scratch, but I have one from another state. I was wondering and its my fault I did not put it correctly in the OP. Is there a way to get a CCW from Florida and keep my original out of state lisc so I do not have to go 120 days without one? I could get an out of state lisc. and keep my DL and CCW from out of state and once I get the Guest CCW from FLA I should be able to switch my DL and get an immediate CCW based on my guest CCW. My dilemma is I do not want to forfeit my current CCW that FLA observes and wait 120 days to get another. I want to carry uninterrupted.

i would say that depends on the issuing state rules. if you no longer have that address and you are a florida resident then you probably cant have that old permit anyway.

my permit came about 2 weeks after i applied in punta gorda.

are you a veteran? that takes care of the course requirements. if you need a course just to fulfill the need then go to the next gun show. they have them there. if you have a ccw in another state then you must be familiar with the weapon, or you should be. then its just a matter of familiarizing yourself with florida law, such as when you can shoot and where you cant carry.
