The forum is what we miss from Packing.org. It had some horrible trolls on it, but it also had some of the most intelligent and best-spoken posters I've seen on the internet.

The loss of that site was detrimental to the United States.

Open Carry & Concealed Carry Websites

check out http://www.usconcealedcarry.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The website and magazine are nothing but concealed carry information.

They have regular contributors that specialize in concealed carry for women, the psychological aspects of concealed carry and the aftermath of self-defense use of firearms, tactics, review of equipment, etc.

It's worth checking out their website

Here's a great (and official) summary of Florida's Open Carry Law - written by former Fla AG Bob Butterworth:

http://www.usacarry.com/forums/open-car ... stion.html
Number: AGO 91-36
Date: May 17, 1991
Subject: Concealed firearms licencee, open wearing of firearm


The Honorable Charles M. Holcomb
Circuit Judge
Eighteenth Judicial Circuit

RE: WEAPONS AND FIREARMS–LICENSES–CRIMES–open wearing of firearms. ss. 790.053, 790.06, F.S.

QUESTION:

May a holder of a concealed firearms license pursuant to s. 790.06, F.S. (1990 Supp.), legally carry or wear the firearm unconcealed, i.e., on the outside of his clothing, in the same places in which one may legally carry a concealed firearm without violating s. 790.053, F.S.?

SUMMARY:

A person who is licensed pursuant to s. 790.06, F.S. (1990 Supp.), to carry a concealed firearm is not authorized by virtue of that license to openly carry a firearm in violation of s. 790.053, F.S.

Section 790.053, F.S., specifically prohibits the open carrying of weapons:

"Except as otherwise provided by law, it shall be unlawful for any person to openly carry on or about his person any firearm or electric weapon or device; provided, however, that a person may openly carry a stun gun or nonlethal electric weapon or device designed solely for defensive purposes, which weapon does not fire a dart or projectile. Any person violating this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084."

Thus, in the absence of a statute specifically authorizing such conduct, it is unlawful for any person to openly carry a firearm.

Carrying concealed weapons is also made unlawful by Florida law. Section 790.01(1), F.S., provides that "[w]hoever shall carry a concealed weapon or electric weapon or device on or about his person shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree . . . ." However, the provisions of this statute do not apply to persons licensed as set forth in s. 790.06, F.S. (1990 Supp.).[1]

Section 790.06, F.S., supra, authorizes the Department of State to issue licenses to carry concealed weapons or concealed firearms[2] to persons who meet the statutory requirements. Among the requirements for licensure are Florida residency for at least six months, attaining the age of 21, absence of a physical infirmity which would prevent the safe handling of a firearm, absence of a felony conviction, and demonstrated firearm competency.[3]

Further, the provisions of ss. 790.053, F.S., and 790.06, F.S. (1990 Supp.), do not apply in those instances provided in s. 790.25(3), F.S. (1990 Supp.). When using a firearm lawfully, as set forth in this statute, a person does not need a license when engaged in such activities as: fishing, camping or lawful hunting or going to or returning from a fishing, camping, or lawful hunting expedition;[4] and traveling by private conveyance when the firearm is securely encased or in a public conveyance when the weapon is securely encased and not in the person's manual possession.[5] A person possessing arms at his or her home or place of business is also within the scope of this statute.[6]

Thus, the possession of a concealed weapons license does not authorize a person to openly carry a weapon. However, to the extent that a weapon is carried openly for the specified lawful uses set forth in s. 790.25(3), F.S. (1990 Supp.), or as otherwise authorized by statute, such conduct is lawful.


Sincerely,

Robert A. Butterworth
Attorney General

If you need to get your concealed carry permit, there is a class that has received alot of media coverage over the years. The price for the class is only $20. It is the least expensive CCW class in Florida, and a darn good one.
