I am currently visiting Florida. I was invited to Christmas dinner at a relative's (by marriage) home. The relative is a local city cop and nice guy and the discussion naturally turned to new driver's license laws in Florida and then to guns. I showed him my Florida CCW license and he said that he was told that the Florida license is not valid if you are not a resident and his office had told a non-resident that the non-resident could not apply for a permit. He said my license was most probably valid because I also had a NY pistol license. As I was a guest at his house I did not want to correct my host.

I just want to let people know that Long Island is not unique and that most police officers in the country still have no idea of how much CCW laws in their jurisdiction have changed in the last few years. Carry as much paperwork as possible (including printouts from the state's web sites etc.) at all times.
