Do I need a Concealed Weapons Permit to Buy a Gun in Florida?

September 22, 20172 min read

Do I need a Florida Concealed Carry Permit to buy a gun in Florida?

The simple answer is no, you do not need a concealed weapons permit. To buy a firearm in the State of Florida all you need is a valid government issued ID (Driver's License, Identification Card) or a combination of ID to prove:

  • Your current residence address

  • Your Full Name

  • Your Date of Birth

You only need a Florida concealed carry permit if you're planning on concealing your firearm on or about your person. Which means in your waistband, purse or backpack.

If you do not have a concealed weapons permit you will  have a three-five day wait (the Florida handgun waiting period) before you can actually take your gun home (depending on which county you're purchasing in). The only difference with a concealed carry permit when purchasing a firearm is you will not have to wait for your firearm, you will be able to take it with you right after you purchase it.

Tampa Carry can help you take the next step toward receiving your Florida Concealed Weapons Permit

Thinking about getting a Florida concealed carry permit? Tampa Carry offers classes that make the process smooth sailing to ensure that you will not only get your concealed carry permit but that you will be able to buy a gun in Florida without needing to wait for the Florida handgun waiting period.

We take our role as concealed carry permit instructors very seriously because we’ve been in dangerous situations before where we’ve had no way to protect ourselves. It was then that we decided to get serious about concealed carry permits and making sure we were always ready for whatever was lurking around the next corner.

We teach Florida concealed carry permit classes so that you don’t have to live in fear. You can be confident in all you do, in everywhere you go, day or night. Of course, we teach responsibility for your situational awareness, but knowing that you have a concealed carry weapon helps to reassure you that you can be in control, that you aren’t in danger.

Taking the Florida concealed carry permit class is a simple three part process: you watch a 30 minute concealed carry permit class video, then you schedule a live-fire appointment (where we will provide you all the hearing and eye protection you need, and the .22 handgun you need to shoot), and then you attend the live fire and meet with a certified concealed carry permit instruction to complete your training. That’s all there is to it!

After that you simply submit your concealed carry permit application to the state of Florida and wait for it to arrive.
