As a CHL instructor - with the current election and shooting I am scheduling all my free days with filled classes. I am doing my best to help us get caught up! :patriot:

Anyone can take their own state's Hunter Education Training, or a simple NRA Basic Pistol Course(two choose two examples of acceptable training), and get a FL license. For a non-resident to get a Texas license, they must travel to within Texas state boundaries and attend the Texas-specific training.



That is all that is keeping me from having a Texas license right now. I haven't been able to take a course in Texas. I've already paid the fee, which is cheap because I am an old veteran.

I have Florida and Utah licenses, since nobody recognizes CA licenses, and mine has expired anyway. The training that qualified me for Utah was accepted by Florida, and it is merely a matter of doing the paperwork, getting the prints and photos and stuff to them. It was a piece of cake compared to California!

It is probably a good idea to have some training in Texas carry law. Those signs, red, blue, close but no cigar, can be tricky. Use of force principles are pretty much universal everywhere, with some notable variations. I don't resent it that Texas wants me to take a class. I have been a law-abiding citizen for more than 65 years and want to stay that way, at least while my mom is still alive!


Does FL put the specific gun serial numbers on the license like CA did?

No. They don't even put your address or designate it as resident or non-resident. It is simply a license.

Here is a chart I made the other day, out of my own curiosity, which shows our progress according to the official numbers on the DPS website.

I understand the Florida license is somewhat easier to get and it also lasts 7 years. As a Texas resident, I would want to make sure I got all the Texas law stuff I could. Also if the federal school law becomes a factor, I understand it exempts instate CC holders but not non-resident.
