Thanks for your information! Ok in Alabama, i see, i must have the US citizenship. I have a active US military ID card, but that does not matter, i think?Permanent residents are okay in Florida. You have to be a legal Permanent Resident of the U.S., not just a visiting alien. Florida's permit is valid in Alabama (even if you have a non-resident FL permit).
"(5) The Attorney General's Office of the State of ALABAMA has indicated that Alabama will honor BOTH resident and non-resident Florida licenses. However, the Alabama Attorney General notes that there is some uncertainty as to the limits of Alabama's reciprocity law as it pertains to non-resident licenses. Pending clarification by the Alabama Legislature or a decision by an Alabama court, he urges non-resident Florida license holders to exercise caution. Refer to the Alabama AG's Web page for the latest information."
For a definitive answer, you need to check with the Sheriff's Department in the county that you have a residence in. The Code of ALabama makes no distinction about citizenship and eligibility. The example cited above (in posting #2) is of Shelby County, your county may be different.Thanks for your information! Ok in Alabama, i see, i must have the US citizenship.

Maybe, is it possible to apply for a CCW permit in Florida, also when I am a legal resident of Alabama, without living in Florida? I think that would be my last possibility.
Check with the Sheriff in the county where you live. Jefferson County doesn't seem to address the issue.
