UPDATE; new Florida Div of Licensing SOP/law for US veterans.....

Any forum members or Florida residents know if the Florida Gov; Rick Scott or Div of Licensing now allow veterans to carry concealed WITHOUT a 493/W license?
www.Mylicensesite.com
A Fox 35 Orlando news story said a new bill was being pushed thru but that was about 24mo ago.
PM me if you have any news or updates.

Thanks:
Clyde

Not sure what the link was, but here's Florida Law. It may be in another section if it is law, but this Chapter 790 says different.

The provisions for exception from the licensing requirements for judges and LEOs are pretty clear. I was about to comment on the provision for veterans and active duty personnel but it seems murky enough that there'll be no Jr. Forum Lawyer opinion from me today.

Here, however, is the relevant statute:

790.062 Members and veterans of United States Armed Forces; exceptions from licensure provisions.—
(1) Notwithstanding s. 790.06(2)(b), the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services shall issue a license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm under s. 790.06 if the applicant is otherwise qualified and:
(a) Is a servicemember, as defined in s. 250.01; or
(b) Is a veteran of the United States Armed Forces who was discharged under honorable conditions.
(2) The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services shall accept fingerprints of an applicant under this section administered by any law enforcement agency, military provost, or other military unit charged with law enforcement duties or as otherwise provided for in s. 790.06(5)(c).
History.—s. 1, ch. 2012-108.

Pee Ess Edit: JimDandy, not sure if you look up Florida statutes often but your link was for statutes from 2000. I did the same at first, even having to type "2012" into a link to get to the right thing

I'm not quite sure what you are asking. Are you wanting to know if a vet can CC without any license or are you asking if a vet can be a PI without having to have a 493 license.

FL will issue to those in the Military or have served who are between 18 and 21. Those who are not in the military or vets must be 21.

To clear up a few points;
A veteran(with proper DD214 form 4 documents & no felon/mental health problems) can obtain a W or concealed weapon license WITHOUT the Div of Licensing mandated training. It doesn't matter what branch of service, rank, combat awards, or MOS/position. The W license is valid for 7 years & meets the same requirements as the W license for a regular citizen. NOTE: new laws have sped up the application SOP & the plastic W license no longer states the address.

Also; you CAN NOT do "bodyguard" or "close protection" details or be employed with just a W license. You must obtain & keep valid a Florida class D & a class G license to do "plain clothes" security. If a C or private investigator wants to carry a concealed firearm he/she must have valid Florida Div of Licensing D & G cards(on their person IAW Florida law).
G officers or license holders can only use these calibers; 9x19mm(9mm Luger), .38spl or the .380acp. No Magnum PI .45s or Desert Eagle .50AE pistols with laser sights. .357magnum revolvers are allowed WITH factory .38spl caliber loads.
The new Florida bill was for honorable discharge veterans to conceal W/O any state ID cards. It's not a formal law yet in Florida. Both Gov Scott & Lt Gov Carroll are US Navy veterans. Carroll also ran the Stand Your Ground task force after the Martin-Zimmerman incident & she had a A+ rating from the NRA.
