Florida #1

Just heard on the news tonight that Florida is nearing it's 2 millionth CCW permit which accounts for 12% of the adult population. That puts Florida at #1 for most permits issued.

While I'm against having to pay for a right, I'm glad the number is growing. I teach CCW classes on the side so I feel good about helping that number continue to grow.

I wonder how many of these are non-resident CWPs? I think Florida is the most popular for those.

DeputyDave: do you know what the letter codes on our CCW licenses mean? My co-worker has WX preceding his numbers and mine just has W. I attempted to look it up without success.

I cannot speak to the absolute accuracy, however;

W - is for a non law enforcement
WX or WY - When they run out of W numbers, they use WX or WY
WJ - Is for a Judge
WC - would be for a consulate or diplomatic type license

Thank you, that makes sense.
