If you have an address already, you could ship them to yourself at the new address.

The only time an FFL needs to get involved is when transferring to another individual.

Do I have to ship my guns from one NY FFL to FL FFL.
Or can I drive to FL with my guns locked in a box.
Smart move! I did the same on October 1st 1991. Never looked back.

Florida is one of the easiest states to get a cwp in. You will enjoy your new freedoms here for sure.

In Florida you get a Concealed Weapon or Firearms License good for 7 years. They'll run your fingerprints through the FBI and Florida Dept of Law Enforcement database. You have to submit proof you've had accredited firearms instruction or something similar, $42 for fingerprints, a passport photo, and a $75 licensing fee. And you're GTG.

You can carry a firearm, a dirk, brass knuckles, a tear gas gun, a knife, a baton, a chemical weapon, a slingshot, or all of the above.

Yep, I remember when mine came in the mail. It had a little yellow sheet of paper with reciprocity lists and warnings. IIRC, one of the states said only firearm carry was allowed, no dirks, billys or slap shot. LOL, like who the hell is going to pick a blunt/edged object over a firearm? The whole part about telling people "they aren't a part time police officer" was funny too.

What part of Florida is in your sights?

No, don't come to Florida; too many bugs and snakes and it is too hot and humid most of the year. Go to Arizona instead. It is much nicer there.

Guns in cases (for their protection) out of sight (trunk is good). Obey the laws of the road and LE will have no reason to stop you in the first place. Remember, just say no to consent searches

South Florida (Palm Beach, Broward, Dade counties) has been a suburb of New York since the 70's.
I grew up there but finally couldn't take anymore and moved to rural North Florida in 1995.

If you are moving to Florida to become a Floridian, fine, but if you are coming to support the large number of New York residents residing in Boca Raton led by Debbie Wassermann-Schultz I would suggest you move to another state.

Welcome to Florida.
