Last year, I met a man who had recently purchased a firearm by private sale. He felt that the transaction was a little strange and wondered if the firearm was stolen or not. I ran the serial number on the Florida Department of Law Enforcements stolen firearm database
Your concealed carry permit is valid for 7 years. If you move out of State during this period I strongly recommend you keep your concealed weapon permit valid. You will need to change your permit from a resident status to a non-resident status, but it is always worth having a Florida CWP because it is reciprocal with so many other States.
This is one of the most common questions we receive so here is an easy questionnaire if you have no criminal history. Florida is called a must issue State. Which means that anyone who wants a concealed carry permit, and is not a prohibited person, must be issued a permit.
If you do have a criminal history this question becomes a little more difficult to answer.
