• WHAT IS AN FFL?

    An “FFL” is a Federal Firearm License. There are currently over 58,000 FFL licensees nationwide.  FFL holders are commonly gun stores, pawn shops, and retail sporting goods stores.  However, there are also many individuals that hold an FFL.  All firearms sold to individuals online, must be shipped to a local FFL holder, who will then transfer the firearm (via ATF form 4473, and associated background check) to the individual.

  • HOW DO I ARRANGE TO HAVE A LOCAL FFL, HANDLE MY TRANSFER?

    If you are having a firearm transferred to Lotus; first, gather the contact information from the FFL, from where you are making the purchase. You can then contact Lotus with their contact information (including the FFL’s name, address, fax number and/or email address, gun make, model, serial (if known) and part number (if any). We will then forward our FFL number to them, and they will be responsible for making sure your firearm is shipped.

Concealed Carry FAQ

  • How long is the class?

    The class last approximately 3 ½ hours.

  • Does this class teach me how to shoot?

    No.  This class is primarily focused on learning the concealed carry laws for the State of Florida.  There is a brief firearms safety and handling assessment prior to the start of class, but this does not, nor is it intended to, replace proper firearms instruction.  Instruction can be scheduled separately from the CCW class.

  • Do I need a reservation or can I just show up for the class?

    You will need to make a reservation.  The class usually fills up, so there is no guarantee of a seat being available at the start of class unless you have booked it in advance.  This can be done either at the range, or through our website.

  • Do I need to bring a gun?

    No.  There will be a brief assessment with the instructor prior to class to demonstrate proper firearm safety and handling.  We will provide the firearm and ammunition needed for the course.

  • Will I have my CCW permit once I complete the class?

    No.  You will receive a certificate of completion for the class, which you need when applying for your permit.

  • What do I do with the certificate once I complete the class?

    You will take the certificate to one of the nearby government offices that accepts CCW permit applications and present it when you complete the application, fingerprints and photos.  This can all be completed at several locations, with an appointment, and this information will be provided in more detail during the class.

  • Are there any fees other than the class fee?

    Yes.  When you submit your application to the State, you will pay the State fee for the CCW permit which will range from $102 - $124, depending on where you file your application.  This information will be provided in more detail during the class.

  • I’m a veteran.  I heard I don’t need this class. Is that true?

    That is true.  You can submit a DD214 with your application instead of the certificate from this course.  The thing to remember is this course will teach you the concealed carry laws for the State of Florida, which is something the military did not teach you.  If you choose this option, you are responsible for finding the laws on your own.

  • In how many States will my Florida CCW permit be valid?

    Currently there are 39 states that recognize a Florida resident CCW permit.  The current list can be found on the Florida Dept. of Agriculture website and it is constantly changing, so be sure to keep up with the current laws and reciprocity agreements.

  • I’m from another state.  Can I still get a Florida CCW permit?

    Yes.  You will receive a Non-Resident Permit.  While this won’t make a difference within Florida, there are a few states that do not offer reciprocity with a Florida Non-Resident Permit.  This list is constantly changing, so be sure to keep up with the current laws and reciprocity agreements.

  • How long will it take to get my permit once I submit my application?

    This timeframe changes along with the current backlog of applications.  The State has 90 days from the receipt of the application to either issue the permit or deny the application.  The time is frequently less than this and we have seen permits issued anywhere from two weeks to two months after the application is submitted.
