Can anyone please tell me what documents are required to get my permit renewed. I just bought a home in FL and would like to get a FL resident CCW, which I don't think I can get with a ny drivers license. If I can get a FL resident CCW with a NY DL I might not be able to buy a handgun in FL without a Florida DL. I not sure if the FL resident ccw is valid ID to purchase a handgun. If I have to give up my NY DL then so be it but I would rather not. How would this effect my rifle/shotgun permit or chance at renewel? I will still have my same residence here in ny and all the bills are in my name with this address. Looking at the application and permit, it doesn't seem like I need to have a NY DL. I will live in each state 50% of the time. From what I have seen they ask for 2 photos $140 and to sign that everything is the same. Would everything be the same? The application doesn't state where your DL needs to be from.

Q: What constitutes residency in a State?

The State of residence is the State in which an individual is present; the individual also must have an intention of making a home in that State. A member of the Armed Forces on active duty is a resident of the State in which his or her permanent duty station is located. If a member of the Armed Forces maintains a home in one State and the member’s permanent duty station is in a nearby State to which he or she commutes each day, then the member has two States of residence and may purchase a firearm in either the State where the duty station is located or the State where the home is maintained. An alien who is legally in the United States is considered to be a resident of a State only if the alien is residing in that State and has resided in that State continuously for a period of at least 90 days prior to the date of sale of the firearm. See also Item 5, “Sales to Aliens in the United States,” in the General Information section of this publication.

[18 U.S.C. 921(b), 922(a) (3), and 922(b)(3), 27 CFR 478.11]
Q: May a person (who is not an alien) who resides in one State and owns property in another State purchase a handgun in either State?

If a person maintains a home in 2 States and resides in both States for certain periods of the year, he or she may, during the period of time the person actually resides in a particular State, purchase a handgun in that State. However, simply owning property in another State does not qualify the person to purchase a handgun in that State.

You can get a Florida non-resident permit through the mail. Just go to their website and order the packet. Cost is or was $117.
Buying a handgun and immediately taking possession will generally need a DL in that state to prove residency. If you don't live there, they will opt for the FFL and ship to your neighborhood FFL dealer, where you can pick it up.
If you have a home down in FL, and you don't want to switch residency, your option might be to buy personally from a person. Or go to a gun show.
