    I recently moved a couple of months ago from Michigan where I had a CPL. As I have moved down here my CPL is no longer valid. However since MI does require training, which I did a year ago today. Since my training was done in MI and i now live in GA, can I use that training to validate for a Florida CWP? My apologies if i posted this in the wrong forum. If so please move it.

    It should be fine. I don't think FL has a time limit on when you received the training. You do realize you'll need a GWL to carry in GA, right?

    yeah i know...ive already applied. Been waiting a month so far...The reason why i ask abt the fl cwp is because since Ohio doesnt honour GAs permit but they honour both fl and ut, and ive already had the training done i might as well apply for the fl one.

    Check out Florida Statute 790.06 and see if your training meets any of the standards listed.

    I suggest the Utah permit, it is honored by more states than any other license.

    1. Completion of any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission or a similar agency of another state;

    So does our GA Hunter Safety Course meet the requirements for the FL training requirement?

    Hey Rabbi, what is involved in applying for the FL license? I do have the hunter safety and qualify based on military as well. I go to FL frequently. I just hate that you cannot OC down there, or at least that is my understanding. I hate taking a 380 in my pocket, but that is better than nothing. A new XDM compact is in my near future.

    My opinion: yes it does. YMMV.

    Do you have a GA license? If so, it's good in FL as we have reciprocity. No need to get a non-resident FL license just to go to FL. Now if you want it to pick up the other states, then go for it!

    A Florida license adds a good number of states to your Georgia license, but South Carolina isn't one of them. SC does not have reciprocity for non-resident licenses, so if you don't live in Florida and have a Florida drivers license it's a no go.

    Florida will take a Hunters Safety course and a DD-214 as evidence of training.

    it looks like it does..i intend on applying for mine..i got the packet in and i just need to get my passport photos done...

    also it looks like GA hunter card will satisfy VA's requirement might pick that one up as well and a PA permit....which by the way if anyone wants you better get soon cause after the first of the year you will have to apply in person!!!

    Don't know what other states you are considering picking-up, but PA will get you carry in VA, IIRC.
