In 2005 FLA CCL's were good for 5 years (I know, I got mine in 2005).That means that yours has expired, unless you've renewed it. If you renewed it in 2009, and you've been in TX since 2007, the your FLA CCL is now considered a non-resident CCL as you've notified the FLA Division of Licensing that you are no longer a FLA resident.Hi im new here on this forum.

Now, the next question is: does TX recognize FLA CCL's? And as a follow on, does TX recognize Non-Resident CCL's from FLA. I suggest you contact the department of the TX state govt that administers CCL's and ask them if they have reciprocity with FLA - AND - do they recognize FLA's Non-resident CCLs.
http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.u...11.htm#411.173Sec.411.173.NONRESIDENT LICENSE. (a)The department by rule shall establish a procedure for a person who meets the eligibility requirements of this subchapter other than the residency requirement established by Section 411.172(a)(1) to obtain a license under this subchapter if the person is a legal resident of another state or if the person relocates to this state with the intent to establish residency in this state. The procedure must include payment of a fee in an amount sufficient to recover the average cost to the department of obtaining a criminal history record check and investigation on a nonresident applicant. A license issued in accordance with the procedure established under this subsection:
(1)remains in effect until the license expires under Section 411.183; and
(2)may be renewed under Section 411.185.
(a-1)Repealed by Acts 2005, 79th Leg., Ch. 915, Sec. 4, eff. September 1, 2005.
(b)The governor shall negotiate an agreement with any other state that provides for the issuance of a license to carry a concealed handgun under which a license issued by the other state is recognized in this state or shall issue a proclamation that a license issued by the other state is recognized in this state if the attorney general of the State of Texas determines that a background check of each applicant for a license issued by that state is initiated by state or local authorities or an agent of the state or local authorities before the license is issued.For purposes of this subsection, "background check" means a search of the National Crime Information Center database and the Interstate Identification Index maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
(c)The attorney general of the State of Texas shall annually:
(1)submit a report to the governor, lieutenant governor, and speaker of the house of representatives listing the states the attorney general has determined qualify for recognition under Subsection (b); and
(2)review the statutes of states that the attorney general has determined do not qualify for recognition under Subsection (b) to determine the changes to their statutes that are necessary to qualify for recognition under that subsection.
(d)The attorney general of the State of Texas shall submit the report required by Subsection (c)(1) not later than January 1 of each calendar year.
The above statute makes no limitations that it applies only to non-residents of Texas.
Florida is on the reciprocity list.
Based upon those two citations, you should be good, IF your Florida permit is still valid and not expired or revoked.
Thank you LT. That pretty much explains it. Agian thank you.
