Florida Concealed Carry Permit Lawyer
Miami Gun Rights Lawyer Providing Effective Representation For 50+ Years
Florida does not require a permit or license to buy a gun, nor are you required to register the gun(s). However, you do need a license to carry a concealed weapon. When purchasing a gun, there are still criteria to ensure that no minors, no non-citizens of the United States, and nobody with certain criminal convictions on their record are permitted to obtain a weapon.
How to Get a Concealed Carry Permit in Florida
If you are interested in getting a concealed carry gun permit in Florida, you should know that you have the option of getting a concealed carry permit in Florida by mail or in person.
Concealed Carry Permit In Person
If you are getting a Florida concealed gun permit in person you have the option of going to a Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) regional office or an approved tax collector's office in Florida.

- Government or state-issued picture ID.
- Documents showing Firearm Training proficiency.
- Pay the $97.00 licensing fee.
- Possible other documents
- Reading Chapter 790 Florida Statutes (F.S)
It's important to note that regional offices do not accept cash and tax collectors may charge convenience fees of up to $22.00. Tax collectors also have the option of choosing which payment methods they accept, so it's important to contact them ahead of time.
Once you've completed your application, you'll need to swear and confirm that you have been given a copy of Chapter 790. F.S.
