This sets out the rules regarding HANDGUNS only. Shotguns and rifles are subject to some different rules & requirements.
To purchase a handgun in Florida you must:
A) be a Florida resident (see residency question below) AND,
i) be 21 years of age or older, AND
ii) be a U.S. citizen, OR a Resident Alien (i.e. in possession of a valid Green Card), OR be a Non-Resident Alien with a Visa AND a valid hunting license, AND
iii) not otherwise be precluded from being in possession of firearms (i.e. felony conviction, current felony charges, domestic violence convictions, restraining orders, civil commitment for mental illness, etc.).
If you meet these requirements, there is a one-page federal background check form that must be filled out (ATF Form 4473). You will undergo a NICS (National Instant Criminal Check System) background check.
There is a three (3) full business day wait (cooling-off period) to pick up a handgun UNLESS you have a valid FLORIDA Concealed Weapons permit OR are trading-in a functioning handgun for a different handgun.
We offer training to obtain the Florida Concealed Weapons permit. We have a regularly scheduled course on Sundays at 10:00am. The cost is $75 and lasts about three hours, including time at the public shooting range located at Cecil Webb State Park.
Our instructor, David J. Moore, also offers the Learn How to Shoot Course for beginning shooters. Please contact David directly at 239.945.7157 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information and times.
