To concealed carry you do. But to just own a gun? No you don't.

You probably need a FL license and that should be it, as far as I understand.
Same here in SC - license, gun. CCW course for Concealed. I can carry in FL with my SC permit as we have reciprocity
Even attempting to think about owning a gun in NJ is not worth the effort. They make it very difficult.

You do NOT need a concealed carry permit to buy any weapon in Fla. But you will have to fill out the USG form (forgot the number off hand) stating that you are NOT a felon. If you can do that, and have no permit you will have to wait 5 days. No waiting if you have a Fla permit or your state has reciprocity with Fla.

Having an education level to spell common words properly and/or the courtesy and patience to type words in full would be a great help , especially when it comes to understanding applicable laws. Beyond that you need proof of citizenship, ability to pass the Federal instant background check, and the cash/credit/other means to pay for the firearm are all that is required to purchase one. Obtaining a CWP in Florida will require attending a class, demonstrating a minimum level of firearms proficiency on a range, paying a fee along with submitting a fingerprint card, passing another background check, and waiting for the state to issue the permit.

I hope you're kidding. Convicted felons aren't even legally able to own a gun, let alone obtain a CWP. Unless your civil rights have been restored by a court...in which case you're in an area beyond my knowledge. Good luck...I have no idea if restoration of rights in another state applies in Florida. If that is the case I would recommend seeking legal council before attempting to purchase a firearm and/or obtain a CWP.

That depends on what you mean by "short barreled shotgun." If you want to purchase the "legal" minimum (over 18"), the aforementioned requirements apply (proof of citizenship, background check, money). If you mean a *true* SBS (less than 18"), you've entered NFA territory. You will need to either obtain the permission of the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in your county (Sheriff) *or* form an NFA trust, purchase the shotgun, (which will be held by the Class III dealer until you've completed all requirements), submit your trust or CLEO permission paperwork along with $200 and an NFA tax stamp application, wait for it all to clear, and then you can take delivery. And if you are serious about purchasing an SBS (or any NFA item), please take what I wrote as a guideline and not gospel truth, do your own research, and don't call me if you run afoul the law.

A side note...I can not recommend strongly enough any and all people in Florida who own a gun and/or have or wish to obtain a CWP purchase, read several times over, study, and thoroughly understand the fine book "Florida Firearms - Law, Use, & Ownership" by Jon Gutmacher. I believe the 8th edition is most current. You'd be hard-pressed to attend any gun show and not find it for sale there, or Amazon has 'em: http://www.amazon.com/Florida-Firear...a+firearms+law .
