Default New Ohio Resident with FL CC Permit

After looking around and reading I'm still not sure if my license is valid. Any input or links for further reading will be appreciated.

Here is my scenario:
I lived in Florida last year and received a Concealed Carry Permit. This year I have moved to Ohio as a full time permanent resident. Is my Florida CCW Permit valid in Ohio under the Reciprocity? Or should I apply for an Ohio CCW Permit? Also, if so, can I transfer my permit?

Does your Florida CCW License have your current address on it?

NO.

ERGO: It's NO LONGER VALID.

I went through the same thing when I moved from Michigan to Nevada. Even though I had a MI CCW as soon as I changed my license over to Nevada I stopped carrying and had to take the class and reapply for a NV one.

You should get an Ohio permit ASAP to avoid any possible legal issues. Better safe than sorry!

Your carry permit is no more valid than your Florida voters registration card.

Having the Florida permit may or may not help you in your quest for an Ohio permit, so I would mention that you have it if you ever get to talk to a real person at the licensing agency.

Did you know that the newer CCW license does not have an address on it? I was amazed. My daughter moved when she shed the leech she was married to, and asked me about changing her address. I pretty much said what you did, and she told me it didn't have any address listed.

Note - we are all providing non-expert legal advice.

You should be good, Ohio doesn't fall under category 4. OH doesn't recognize most weapons as FL does for conceal carry, only firearms.
Many places offer getting the FL license in lieu of OHs. Many others recommend still getting OHs as well.
Whereabouts are you living in OH? There are places everywhere that have CCW courses. They would clarify a little better for you.
I am a resident of Ohio and have a FL permit. At the time they(FL) had quite a few more reciprocity states. That has changed a lot now though.

If a license is obtained in any state and then you move and are no longer a resident of that state then that license is no longer valid, period. At that time in order to be licensed in that state a non resident license would have to be obtained. Most states don't have non resident permits, but Fla does.

If stopped by LE in Ohio for carrying you will be asked to present your driver's license for additional ID along with your resident Fla CWP. You had better show them a driver's license with a Fla address.
