From what I see on the sheriff's website, you need a permit for each pistol that you purchase, so reading between the lines, you'd have to apply again and get approval to purchase an additional handgun. You can double-check by calling your county sheriff's office.

I gathered that info also; however, I own several cars and only have one license. That's why I asked the question.Thank you.Ken

I understand that. I have handled several thousand criminal cases and have only one law license. But that doesn't mean the licenses are comparable.

What you are asking about is not a carry permit. You'd only need one carry permit no matter how many guns you have. You are asking about a purchase permit. which has only a finite window of opportunity for you to be able to use it and then it expires.
