Try to get the Florida real Nice looking license..Plus more states..
This is the list of states under Florida............
Virginia 1-6 ,
(1) is simple to understand......
Now to the # (6) These states issue concealed carry licenses to qualified individuals who are non-residents. These non-resident permits cannot be honored under Florida's reciprocity provision.
That just means a Virginia non resident license (if you could get it at all) cannot be honored in Florida. On the flip side you are ALLOWED to carry in Virginia with the Florida Non resident license which is what you want.
NOW #(4) These states will honor the Florida concealed weapon license ONLY IF the license holder is a legal resident of the State of Florida.
Thats the # you don't want to see if you have a Non resident Florida license. States with that #4 next to them is a problem.
YOUR FLORIDA CONCEALED WEAPON OR FIREARM LICENSE IS CURRENTLY VALID IN THE FOLLOWING 34 STATES:
Alabama1, 3, 5
Indiana1, 3, 6

North Dakota3, 6

(Please see note references on the reverse
(1) While Florida's law allows licensees to carry stun guns, knives, and billy clubs in a concealed fashion, the laws in these states allow for concealed carry of handguns or pistols ONLY, NOT WEAPONS IN GENERAL. Florida license holders are prohibited from carrying other types of weapons while in these states.
(2) VERMONT is unique in that it does not issue weapon/firearms licenses. Florida licensees may carry in Vermont. This presents a problem for reciprocity with Florida. However, Florida law specifies that an out-of-state resident must have in his or her immediate possession a valid license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm. Because Vermont residents have no such license, the right to concealed carry cannot be extended to them under Florida law.
(3) Individuals qualify for concealed weapon licenses in these states upon reaching 18 years of age. HOWEVER, any licensee of these reciprocity states who is not 21 years of age or older IS PROHIBITED from carrying a concealed weapon or firearm in Florida.
(4) These states will honor the Florida concealed weapon license ONLY IF the license holder is a legal resident of the State of Florida.
(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. Licensees should call authorities in Alabama to obtain the most current information.
(6) These states issue concealed carry licenses to qualified individuals who are non-residents. These non-resident permits cannot be honored under Florida's reciprocity provision.
