I recently got my Alabama gun permit and will be moving soon to Florida. When I get my new drivers license in Fl will my AL gun permit still be valid even if issued in Alabama?

Answer

The most recent information about this matter is that for a concealed weapons permit to be valid in Florida it must have been issued to a resident of the state in which it was issued. The trick there is that if you are "moving" as you say, to Florida, then you will no longer be a resident of Alabama, will you?

But since a Florida concealed weapons permit is valid in Alabama, reciprocity is assumed while you are transitioning to your new domicile.

Just apply for a Florida permit as soon as you get settled.

This is a handy chart by those worthy folks at CCRKBA at http://www.ccrkba.org/reciprocity.html.
