    I thought that I read here somewhere that there was a state issuing non resident permits and required no class. My father in law and I paln to take a utah/florida combo but this is until then.

    Doesn't New Hampshire still require you have a CHL in your home state? Did 4 years ago when I applied.

    Good resourse for non-resident permits

    http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/NonResidentPermits.pdf

    This doc shows 9 states where you can apply for non-resident permits by mail.

    Pennsylvia looks like the best place to get a non-resident permit w/o a course, followed by New Hampshire (as long as you have a permit from another state).

    Maine and Florida look almost as easy but for the requirement to prove "firearms training" with in the past 5 years. However if you're a vetern/active/reservist they don't require that (a copy of ID card or discharge papers cover it).
    And FL is expensive if you ask me at $117.

    Florida?

    The Florida class does not require you fire a round! But having said that, more LEOs are shooting themselves by accident than CCW Citizens, and there are lots more private Citizens than Police with holstered loaded hand guns.

    When I got my Florida permit a couple years back, the requirement was to show evidence that I had taken a class of some sort (basically, that I had evidence to show I had some firearms familiarization). A basic NRA class, for instance, or hunter training, or military experience.

    Florida.By the way when I applied for New Hampshire that took 5 days box to box!
    They don't even require a photo .Very inexpensive.20 dollars a few years ago.
    As several posters suggested get NH after you receive your PA.
    I'll list what states honor NH for you.See link:

    I think the PA permit may require you to have a permit for your home state right?

    I wonder if PA would consider CA and NJ non issuing states. In theory they do, but in practice they don't.

    You need a permit from your home state if that state has a concealed carry law. Residents of Illinois, Vermont and Wisconsin are exempt from this requirement.

    No such luck.

    I'll be appling for PA after I get WA's

    After finding out they have a sheriff over there that is helpful with non-residents getting permits, I'll be applying for their's after I get one from Washington. Then when I go one leave later this year I'll get Montana's. I know there will be several duplicate coverages there, but with the "resident only" clause for certain states, this should cover it.

    Hsidell--deffinately keep us posted on the turn around time.
    From what I read it sounded like a few weeks; is this the same as a PA resident?

    Thanks for clearing that up. FL's DOJ/DOL site wasn't very clear on the exact class requirement outside the military experience.
