Having a CCW license is just one more expiration to creep up on you if you are not paying attention. I’m not sure how I remembered, but glanced at my 35 day past expiration on my Ohio Concealed Carry license are realized it has already been 5 years. Wow, it seems like just the other day?
Anyway, I made my appointment down at the Butler County Sheriff’s office after filling out the renewal application and was thankfully within the 120 day grace period for renewing. What I did find out is that the Ohio CCW license has a 30 day past expiration date for legal carry … which broached the subject of reciprocity with my Florida CCW. In my unanswered question to the office, I’ve concluded it is a grey area … since the non-resident Florida may not be quite as welcome without having a resident license? I really never received a straight answer from the department charged with taking photos and fingerprints. Nevertheless, I feel a little better having both the 10 years FL license and five more 5 years of a new Ohio CCW … a A WHOLE LOT better than living where civilian gun ownership is thwarted at every bureaucratic turn. At least the two licenses that I carry pretty much covers my travels. (USA Carry)
