Thread: No Reciprocity Now
So WA (where I live) and FL (where you live) used to have reciprocity. The key phrase is USED to.
Looking over the FL 790.015 language, seems to allow and then disallow me carrying a concealed handgun.
OK, I'm covered with all the above. So reading only this far it seems to say that my WA CPL allows me to carry concealed in FL. But then....(1) Notwithstanding s. 790.01, a nonresident of Florida may carry a concealed weapon or concealed firearm while in this state if the nonresident:
(a) Is 21 years of age or older.
(b) Has in his or her immediate possession a valid license to carry a concealed weapon or concealed firearm issued to the nonresident in his or her state of residence.
(c) Is a resident of the United States.
WA does NOT honor FLs permit any more due to the veteran exemption to the 21 years old limit. WA had to break reciprocity with FL because WA law does not allow 18 to 21 year olds to carry concealed. It's nothing personal, it's just that the WA Attorney General doesn't get to make the law, and that's what WA law says.(4) This section applies only to nonresident concealed weapon or concealed firearm licenseholders from states that honor Florida concealed weapon or concealed firearm licenses.
So am I correct in my belief that what (1) gives, (4) takes away, and I may not legally carry concealed in FL with my WA CPL?
I'm coming to FL next month and that isn't enough time to get a FL permit.
It is always up to date.

Concealed pistol licenseóReciprocity.
(1)(a) A person licensed to carry a pistol in a state the laws of which recognize and give effect in that state to a concealed pistol license issued under the laws of the state of Washington is authorized to carry a concealed pistol in this state if:
(i) The licensing state does not issue concealed pistol licenses to persons under twenty-one years of age; and
No right is held more sacred, or is more carefully guarded, by the common law than the right of every individual to the possession and control of his own person, free from all restraint or interference of others, unless by clear and unquestionable authority of law.
