General process for getting a Concealed Carry License?
 
I'm considering getting my concealed carry license for FL and maybe AL as well. What is the process for getting one? I heard it is different for people in the military. What are some of the general concealed carry rules for most states? I imagine you're not allowed to have it showing like with a side holster or anything, so how do you usually carry you handgun in warm weather when you don't have a coat to hide it?

Hi Crispy!

Generally the best place to get the info for this is the State website. You may have to look around a bit to find it, but sometimes the search function will pull it up for you.

Good luck!

instead of getting the florida license, u might want to consider getting the utah non-resident one. i believe it covers more states than the florida one does, and i believe its cheaper too

Actually, the list of states with reciprocity agreements with UT and FL are very similar. There are some minor differences in which states have reciprocity for a non-resident permit though, and I believe the UT non-resident CCW is not accepted in FL. I think the OP is in FL, so he's probably better off with a FL CCW.

A useful resource for answering these types of questions is http://handgunlaw.us/. Here you can get links to all the states laws, build a reciprocity map for the one or more concealed carry state licensees and much more.

My reciprocity map represents a residents Ohio license and a non-residents New Hampshire license. It's easy to generate "what if" maps so you can compare license combinations and their costs.
