    Hi from Broward County, South Florida

    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Mike and I am really excited to finally move to sunny Florida and even more excited to be able to apply for a CCW permit. I can't wait to get it, is like a dream come true. It's been two weeks already since I went to the DOA to do the application. I hope I learn tons of information about being a responsible gun owner, safety, defensive tactics, and the gun laws here in Florida. I am a retired school teacher and live in Broward County, I love to go to the range and spend time target practicing but I feel that I need to learn more about safety and how to be prepare when that moment comes when you need to use your firearm to defend yourself. Is like many people say, is better to have it and. not need it than need it and not have it.

    Welcome from Jacksonville.

    Welcome from Plantation. Go to Nexus and shoot on the Nexus lanes. Fun times.

    Welcome. You find the right (and best) forum! We have a great group of people here. Many of us have met in person and are "real life" friends. Perhaps you can join us for some range time, and an occasional breakfast meeting aka "Ballistic Pancake Association!"

    Welcome to FCC from Palm Beach County, Buzzie!

    In case you weren't aware, you can stay current on pertinent Florida Statutes regarding use of force and firearms law by going right to the source using these links for Chapter 776 - Justifiable Use of Force and Chapter 790 - Weapons and Firearms. I'd also like to suggest you obtain your own copy of FLORIDA FIREARMS Law, Use & Ownership by Jon Gutmacher!

    Finally, I would like to recommend you consider joining Florida Carry and join the effort to protect the rights of Floridians to keep and bear arms!

    Again, welcome to FCC!
