Looking at the state I want to move to (Montana) it says this regarding firearms course prerequisites for obtaining a CCW.

Looking at my 12 year old DD-214 it specifically lists, "Sharp Shooter Pistol" and "Marksman Rifle" on the awards/ribbons section of the form. I had a ton of training in small arms as a result of being on boarding parties in the Coast Guard.

Just wondering if this is the "firearms safety course" they are talking about with regard to a DD-214.



C. It is REQURED BY LAW that you complete a certified firearms safety course before the application is submitted. EXAMPLE: Hunter's Safety, DD-214, or any other NRA Certified Instructed course. Proof of completion of such course can be a photocopy of certificate, an affidavit from the entity or instructor that conducted the course or a copy of any other document that attests to completion of the course & can be certified through contact with the entity or instructor that conducted the course.

I suspected that but still wondered.

At the end of the month when I get there, then I have to wait the 6 months to establish residency there before I can apply.

What qualifies as proof of firearms training?

Montana law recognizes any of the following training resources:

  • completion of a hunter education or safety course approved or conducted by the department of fish, wildlife, and parks or a similar agency of another state;
  • completion of a firearms safety or training course approved or conducted by the department of fish, wildlife, and parks, a similar agency of another state, a national firearms association, a law enforcement agency, an institution of higher education, or an organization that uses instructors certified by a national firearms association;
  • completion of a law enforcement firearms safety or training course offered to or required of public or private law enforcement personnel and conducted or approved by a law enforcement agency;
  • possession of a license from another state to carry a firearm, concealed or otherwise, that is granted by that state upon completion of a course described in subsections (3)(a) through (3)(c); or
  • evidence that the applicant, during military service, was found to be qualified to operate firearms, including handguns."

Can you waive the proof of firearm training for a Veteran?

State law requires the proof of firearm training. Your DD214 must specifically state “handgun training”.

You just had to rain on my parade didn't you? Oh well, I'll have to take a course then. No biggie.

God bless Florida..I just sent in a back and front copy of my MIL ID ...it's mainly about basic familiarization/safety here I guess.

If your DD214 shows pistol qualification I'd think you would be GTG.

Check your IM for an interim solution

I could of got the class and range waived based on Military service, but decided to take class anyway.
That way I learned about all the new laws that were out there.
As for the range requirement, I wasn't worried about it, and just saw it as a chance to go shoot. I was going to shoot anyway, so what did it matter where I shot?

As for your permit, an option might be to get one for where you are currently stationed, and use it in Montana (provided Montana recognizes that state's permit) until you are able to obtain a Montana permit. If Wisconsin is where currently assigned disregard the above, and apply for a Florida Non-Resident license.
