    If you are unaware of how Wisconsin Stated they would honor a Florida permit I won’t go into the particulars but they have posted an update. Now Wisconsin is stating the following on how they will honor a FL License:

    Florida license ISSUED OR RENEWED TO NON-FLORIDA RESIDENTS ON OR AFTER 08/01/2013.

    You can see it at https://www.doj.state.wi.us/dles/cib/conceal-carry/reciprocity Handgunlaw.us is not aware of WHY this change was made and why it is only FL Licenses issued to Non-Residents that will be honored.

    Probably because Florida BG check are not as stringent as Wisconsin?? I don't know but it seems to be this paragraph??

    DOJ has now promulgated an administrative rule, Wis. Admin. code s. Jus 17.13, under which DOJ will maintain on this website a list of all states that DOJ has found to conduct background checks comparable to Wisconsin’s. In developing that list, DOJ determined that a background check is comparable to Wisconsin’s only if it includes both a criminal history record search and a NICS search. It is necessary to require inclusion of NICS because that database includes some data related to potential disqualifying conditions that is not included in other national background check databases or in databases operated by individual states.

    I'll never understand why the databases contain different levels of information first off. No wonder there's screwed up situations on checks. They really need to fix that before doing anything new.
    That said:
    In the past, on a pawn redemption we could do a NICS check (free) but only for the first 90 days, after that we had to go to FDLE (charge).
    All firearm purchases had to do a br check through FDLE (charge)..
    Now it's all FDLE. (charge)
    Can we make one database, keep it up to date with all departments reporting to it in a timely manner and just query that?

    Same situation with Wisconsin only honoring Virginia non-resident permits. The reason is that Virginia uses a state database (administered by the State Police) for checking resident applications, but national NICS (administered by the FBI) for non-resident applications. The state database is apparently not good enough for Wisconsin. (The state database is also used when purchasing guns in Virginia. The state opted out of national NICS.)

    Wisconsin is the only state that disqualifies Virginia residents while recognizing Virginia non-residents. Florida, South Carolina, Colorado, Michigan, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Maine are the other way around -- recognizing Virginia resident permits but not non-resident.

    Interesting concept.

    Here in Alaska, no permit is required for concealed or open carry, yet the state offers a CCW permit, which people obtain solely for the purpose of traveling out of state with their concealed firearms.
