    Let's say I have a MS permit. It has reciprocity in about 24 states. Can you get a Non Resident Florida license running concurrently and would there be any benefit to it?

    Yes, many people get the Utah permit because of the number of states it allows you to carry in.

    People do it regularly.

    Also, UT, NH, VA, and other states but those are the most popular along with FL.

    Some collect them like baseball cards.

    In regards to FL they don't accept permits from other states unless that person is a resident of that state.

    If you live in WS and have a Utah permit you can not carry in FL. You can get a FL Non-resident permit and you would be ok.

    Just an FYI if you are looking at options keep that in mind. A permit from your state that FL accepts or FL's non-resident permit is all that works in FL.

    I have one for Utah and Pennsylvania...interesting note most states require you to have a resident permit even if the out of state permit is reciprocated in your state. I think the primary reason is they still want the revenue.

    that fact seems overlooked by many individuals.

    Most? I'm not seeing that. Which states require you to already have your home state's permit first? I could see PA doing it but FL doesn't, UT doesn't, VA doesn't, NH only says that you have to have another permit but doesn't state any preference of whose. I would guardedly state it's the other way and that most don't care if you have your home state's permit.

    You mean NYC, right ?

    With NYS, they just keep stacking on the amendment forms. Fortunately, my county prints out list of all the guns on one sheet of paper so you can fit it into your wallet.


    And, 15 x 5 = 75 handguns :wow:


    Maybe someday I'll get an out-of-state permit somewhere. But basically, I never go outside of NYS or VT, so I'm good to go there.

    A good baseline tool to use is the reciprocity map at www.usacarry.com. Just click your resident state and then any other state for which you wish to apply for a non-resident permit. Doing so will produce a list of reciprocal states. However, not all of their information is completely up to date.

    I have my VA resident permit and a NH non-resident permit. My NH permit expires next month. I'll have to suck up the $100 fee to renew it. It used to be only $20. Gotta pay to play, I suppose.

    With a non-resident FL permit, you would add, ND, SD, KS, NM, PA, & DE.

    SC only recognizes resident permits. I have MO and FL but will let FL expire since MO has so many states accepting theirs

    I think what he was trying to say was if your home state issues permits, you cannot carry in that state on a non resident permit from a state your home state has reciprocity with.

    I have a Colorado (resident), Florida, and Utah. This gives me coverage for most of the states.

    No...:) Many of these downstate counties have gone the way of Westchester CO - using "credit card" style permits, with 5 guns on the back.

    Yes, my goal is to have 120 handguns :supergrin:

    Why would anyone ever need more than 5 guns? :rofl:

    I glad I dont live In New York sounds like a real Cluster muck, I have new respect for you guys out there.
    I have Iowa takes no time at all to renew for 10-15 bucks. But Iowa thinks its so great it doesnot give any non residents. I would bet the training is no better than any other state. I I looked at Floridas and looks like they take your trainning certificates from any state
    thanks
