I am in panama city florida and there is no place near by to buy bit coins with cash.  I tried PAXFUL just now and they want $120 for $57.41 in bit coins.  You must be kidding me!! That will not happen.  Coinbase won't recognize my ID card, and another place registered me then said that don't deal in Florida.
So, where and how can I buy some bit coins?  I want two coins worth.  I have a wallet with blockchain but cannot buy through them.  They did give me a receive email number.  How can I be sure that I can capture bit coins sent to that number.
Thanks for your time.

Edit:  I tried to buy the Trezor cold store device, but I must have bit coins to buy it.  Except for Amazon where I can buy three of them, but not one.  After I get coins in my Blockchain wallet can I get them under control of the Trezor?

Edit:  I have a wallet ID that I know to keep private and locked away.  I presume I can publish my bit coin receive address.  Is that correct?

That will not happen.  Coinbase won't recognize my ID card, and another place registered me then said that don't deal in Florida.
So, where and how can I buy some bit coins?  
Take a look at localbitcoins.com. There may be people selling Bitcoin near you for cash. Or you can do an online trade with another person with something like a direct bank wire. Just always use Local Bitcoin's escrow system, if the seller asks you to not use it, don't trade with them.

I want two coins worth.  I have a wallet with blockchain but cannot buy through them.  They did give me a receive email number.  How can I be sure that I can capture bit coins sent to that number.
Thanks for your time.
What is an "receive email number"? Do you mean a Bitcoin address? If it is not a Bitcoin address, then such a thing is not recognized by the Bitcoin network or any other wallet.

Edit:  I tried to buy the Trezor cold store device, but I must have bit coins to buy it.  Except for Amazon where I can buy three of them, but not one.  After I get coins in my Blockchain wallet can I get them under control of the Trezor?
You can just use Trezor and create an address. Then send all of your Bitcoin from your blockchain.info account to an address from your Trezor.

Edit:  I have a wallet ID that I know to keep private and locked away.  I presume I can publish my bit coin receive address.  Is that correct?
Your Bitcoin addresses are meant to be published and shared. Note that the wallet ID is a blockchain.info only thing, it is not related to anything else with Bitcoin.

Yeah, I would check out localbitcoins.com as that will probably be a good option for you. There is likely a markup there as well but not nearly as bad as what you quoted for PAXFUL.

Use trezor or electrum to store your value.
Kraken-Coinbase to buy.

I can vouch for Localbitcoins, find a local seller and set up a meet in a public place to buy with cash. You should get them for a fairly good price, especially if you buy with cash.

Kraken-Coinbase to buy.
If you'd bother reading the opening post, you'd know that he can't buy from an exchange such as Kraken or Coinbase.

If you have paypal ty to use it to send money to your seller. But you need escrow to make the transaction safe if your going to meet each other for trade.

120 for 51 Huh? Wow ! Then they wonder why they dont get any clients. Why would they charge that much. Makes no sense at all. I agree with the above users get local bitcoin and you can even meet up with your seller. They give hood prices and tou can pick who to sell to at the best price at the time so you not forced to pay a ridiculous amount more then the Blake you get. Why does paxful do that ? Seriously csn someone tell me ? I would really like to know.

This explains their low user base. I think it is because  they think they are the only smart people and the buyers are stupid. This doesn't exist anymore, with internet access nobody is stupid anymore. Try localbitcoins as it has been suggested although I would recommend coinmama or bitpanda, fees are lower even than in local bitcoins by the way.

Enjoyable post Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I strongly advice people to only buy in to cryptos that have a solid background: A solid team, product, advisors, preferably VC investors, etc. Sell all cryptos that don't have this solid background. It's a waiste of money.  I found this amazing platform: https://www.coincheckup.com They seem to give this complete indepth analysis of all cryptocoins.  Check: https://www.coincheckup.com/coins/Bitcoin#analysis For a complete Bitcoin Analysis.

Buying bitcoins in this month is not a wise decision. You should wait for a month to buy or sell bitcoins because no one knows what will happen to Bitcoin after this fork i mean there is no clear position still in buying or selling bitcoins. Right now bitcoin is falling and BCC is rising but one cant expect anything at this moment because may be its a temporary fall and rise. So better wait for the time.

Which one is better to buy bcc or btc? If bcc has a lot of enthusiasts could result in BTC dead?

If you want to buy bitcoins then I think you should go for localbitcoins which is the best and trusted site with trusted traders but make sure that you trade with a person who has 1000+ trades and 100% feedback score and in that case you will never get scammed.

BCC is not rising anymore and BTC is tot falling. Those changes in bitcoin are insignificant and it is stable at this moment. For the last 2 days maybe even staying almost at the same spot. The best time to buy it was some weeks ago when it dropped down back to 1.8 but now the situation aroung SegWit is mostly clear and there is no threat to BTC.

Price has gone lower today in compare to yesterday so not sure what price we will see in next few days but if you think of long term then there is nothing to worry as price will surely recover once again in coming days and will cross $3k for sure.
