Its been a long time coming...
« on: March 22, 2010, 09:27:59 PM »
Well, it finally arrived.

I now have my Concealed Weapon Carry License.

I say what i want about Florida, but its damn easier to get your concealed carry license here than in MA, where I moved from.

Now, I go holster shopping for my Sigma and my Walther p22 (in carbon fiber pink :)

YAY!!!

*round of applause*

Hey, can you pass me that shell? Those clapper rounds are expensive!
You can't run away on a world that's round.
You're only comin' back to where you'll be found.

Based on thorough experiments involving kissing in the rain, exposing shoulders to direct sunlight, and dancing by the light of a silvery moon,  I have found that, within the bounds of frostbite and decency, hapiness is inversely proportional to the amount of clothing worn.

I plan on picking up my FL license either this week or next.  For out of staters, you can pick up quite a few other states with the FL license.  I will pick up:

WY, ND, KS, NM, AL, GA, WV, DE and of course FL.  The FL and WA will give me 29 states.

When you submitted, was your training specifically NRA?  I am going to try with two courses from FAS that were taught by an NRA instructor, but weren't NRA courses and there is no mention of NRA on the certificate.

I didn't know you could get licenses in multiple states? I thought you could only get one from the state you live in. Can anyone explain this to me please?

Texas has reciprocal agreements with several other states.

http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/administration/crime_records/chl/reciprocity.htm

You have to check the details of each state linked on the link above, but mostly these states recognize the Texas CHL and Texas recognizes the CHL of these other states.
"I went down Virginia, seekin' shelter from the storm.
Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals, wrapped in golden chains.
And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain."

...A quote from the book 'Mataroda' comes to mind:
'To do more than your best is impossible, to do less is unthinkable'

A site I've found useful for exploring reciprocity agreements is: http://www.handgunlaw.us/

As always, the information presented is no substitute for actually contacting representatives in other the states should you need to travel.
