    While MO has finally passed the CCW bill,:neener: my county (st louis) has dug in thier heels and prommised to fight the implementation af this bill as long as they can. While they CAN refuse to issue permits (while the legal battle works itself out) They CANNOT refuse to honor permits already issued.
    This brings me to my question. Florida permits will be honored here and florida issues to out of state residents. I have deciced to begin the process in Florida while I wait for ST louis Co to get of thier a##es. Has anyone else done this? My qustion are these:

    How long does it take?
    one of the options far training is a Hunter safley course. Has anyone used this for their training requirment? ( In MO we will have to take a specially approved course with a shooting test)
    What problems did you encounter?
    Any other advice?
    Tankd in advance, Drew

    Aren't PA permits also recognized? They are much cheaper than Florida permits, at $19, vs. over $100 (IIRC).

    No training needed for the PA permit, either.

    Mine took 69 days. Cannot remember what I used for the silly training requirement.

    Only one problem: I was told that mine would be ready in 180 days, instead it took 70ish. What a pleasant surprise.:) Other than that, fill out form, enclose money order, whine on THR about the wait. (I wrote about it on THR if you can find it).

    I got mine today. It took 63 days. The only problem I had was the public servant reviewing my training certificate couldn`t spot my instructors NRA cert. number. A quick call to Tallahassee took care of it. I carried (legally) for the first time today!

    I also live in St. Louis county and now that I have a valid out of state permit, they can kiss me where the sun never shines. Even if they start to issue, my shadow won`t darken their door till my Fla. permit expires in 5 years.

    Hunter safety is supposed to work, but you'd be crazy not to take John Ross's course instead. For $100, he doe the entire class, barbecues dinner for the entire class, and lets you shoot all his cool guns, including machine guns. You couldn't go out to dinner and rent the machine guns for $100.

    When I finally get my Florida CCW, I know where I'm going for training!

    I'm thinking about driving across the state just to take Mr Ross' class!

    Anyways, I'm waiting for an official MO permit, just in case.

    Also, anyone here have any experience with the other part of our new law, the Carry in the Car part? Has anyone been pulled over with a weapon, if so experiences? ANyone called the county to see the official stance on the car carry?

    I have been slaking on that, and so far haven't carried more out of a concern of not wanting to become the Test Case, if you know what I mean...

    I live in Illinois but spend most of my time on the "other side of the river".
    I received my Florida permit this afternoon, after only 57 days!
    I will legally carry for the first time tomorrow.

    I was able to use my DD214 from the USMC as my training certificate.

    Mine took 56 days...

    the hunter safety course must be state approved. In Alabama we spent half a day in small group presentations and a written test. No cost other than time on Sat. am and the travel across the county. Minimal firearms training, no firing (this is a rifle...a muzzleloader...a shotgun. Pick out the proper ammo and load the weapon.) Every state is different, but would presume these courses commence around hunting season.

    Absolutly no other problems. Local PD does the fingerprints for free, bank notarized and cashier's check for free.

    Just read the app through once before you start marking on it.

    Good luck!
