    I recently moved from Florida to Texas and have Florida CC license that expires in 2012. I called a local gun course in Texas to inquire as to what I needed to do to either transfer or get Texas CC license. The answer was I didn't need too until my Florida CC expired, itis good in Texas. Been reading Texas Law and don't find any reference to that answer. I want to be legal.

    Texas Establishes Concealed Handgun License Reciprocity With Florida and Tennessee

    Texas has signed reciprocal agreements with Florida and Tennessee, allowing citizens with concealed handgun licenses issued by Florida or Tennessee to legally carry concealed handguns in Texas, and vice versa.

    Col. Thomas A. Davis Jr., director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, signed the reciprocity agreements with the State of Florida and the State of Tennessee through which their licensees can visit Texas with their concealed handguns.

    "This agreement will allow licensed Texans to travel freely in the states of Tennessee and Florida, while enjoying the same or similar privileges their licenses give them at home," Davis said.

    These reciprocity agreements--the fifth and sixth Texas has reached with another state--were made possible by 1997 changes to the state's concealed handgun law. Texas also has reciprocity agreements with Arkansas, Louisiana, Arizona and Oklahoma.

    "Texans should remember that weapons laws vary from state to state, and before traveling, license holders should educate themselves about laws in other states that govern where and when they can legally carry their concealed handguns," Davis said.
    Both Florida resident and, if they exist, non-resident licenses are accepted. I would get acquainted with Florida law regarding THEIR recognition of your Florida CHL when you no longer live in Florida. If they still hold it valid, so will Texas.

    Thanks

    I checked with florida and the only requirement was that I must keep my address current and notify them within 30 days of any change. Even in Texas it would be valid in Florida until expired.

    The issue seems to be resolved, but I'm curious why this was posted in the Pennsylvania forum...

    Welcome to the forum. You're going to fit in just fine.
