    FL Non-Resident Permit Question

    Hi all,

    First of all, I would like to say thank you to all of you for informative information that you provided. I believe it would be much harder for me to get my permit from Waterbury PD without these information, e.g. how and when I should harass them so the ball keeps rolling .

    That being said, I was trying to get non-president permit from FL. I did request and receive fingerprints cards from them. Do I have to go to authority to take my fingerprints or I can do it at home? And is there anythings that I should/shouldn't do to expedite my application?

    English is not my first language, please forgive me if there is any confusions.

    Any input is much appreciated.

    Have a good day!

    I would have them done at the DPS HQ in Middletown.

    You may want to ask this on the Florida forum as well as they are more likely to understand Florida law.

    FL requires that prints be done by law enforcement agency.
    States donít have rights. People do.

    Florida Finger prints

    FLORIDA IS A VERY EASY PLACE TO GET A PERMIT, IT'S BACK AND WHITE, LITERLY!FLORIDA REQUIRES YOU TO USE THE CARD THEY SEND YOU AS PART OF THEIR STATUE, IF YOU SEND ANY OTHER CARD THEY WILL REJECT YOU!

    YOUR NRA CERTIFICATE MUST HAVE A SIGNATURE ON IT, OR YOU CAN MAIL IN MILITARY DD214 PAPERS IN PLACE OF THE NRA CERTIFICATE. iN FLORIDA ANYONE WITH MILITARY SERVICE, WITH NO CRIMINAL RECORD CAN GET A PERMIT. wITH "nra" RECOGNITION.

    Mine were done by an acquaintance who runs a UTAH class and provides fingerprinting services for everyone in his class for both their Utah and FL permit.

    It's true Don, I just got my renewal and it's on the instruction sheet, I''ll scan it and get it up as soon as I can...

    ETA: Florida made it easy for me, it's already on the web, check out page 7 regarding fingerprint submission.

    Hmm. I guess they changed that.

    When I took the Utah class from Joel, as a courtesy he also took photos and prints for a FL permit.
    I had no trouble with the prints he took. Well, thanks for correcting my error.

    To anyone who isn't familiar with the difference between the UT and FL permits, the FL permit only requires a NRA basic pistol class, the same class you took for your CT pistol permit.
    The Utah permit requires a special class.

    I've got both FL and UT, but will not be renewing my UT permit. It only gives you one state that FL doesn't. I don't remember what it was, but I remember the chance of me going there was minimal.
    The UT license does not get you FL, where I go regularly. So for me, FL is a better value.

    I'll also be letting my NH permit lapse since renewals have gone from $25 to $100 (or more, I forget) and NH doesn't get me anything FL doesn't get me other than NH.
    Which is fine because in NH I can carry openly or concealed and empty (with a mag on the opposite hip)

    Minnesota is the one extra state you get with a Utah permit.
