So, you are saying without a CCL you are within the law doing this?you do not need a ccw to have a gun in your car in florida. as lond as it is in a case of some sort, glovebox, centerconsole, hustler in door panel, even a shoebox on the passenger seat. It also can be loaded.
There is no such law that it cant be accessible, or the ammo needs to be separate, or any kind of steps. I hear people all the time say that it needs to be three or four steps to get to i, NOPE.
I have a Kel-tec p-11 Loaded with 10xJHP, one in chanber and it sits in the center console ready to go. If i'm in a shady neighbor i'll open the console and all i'll have to do is grab it and pull the trigger.
With no permit, pistol (loaded or unloaded) must be in locked case inside locked glove box or locked trunk. If you are stopped and your vehicle is searched and the weapon is found, you Go To Jail.There was a pamphlet in the paperwork and it says you can have loaded pistol (HP) in the glove box...Opinions, please...
Thanks in advance,
You left out the most important part:Even with the console open it is in a holster that it slides out of so it is still by definition encased.And this is legal without a CCL
5) POSSESSION IN PRIVATE CONVEYANCE.--Notwithstanding subsection (2), it is lawful and is not a violation of s. 790.01 for a person 18 years of age or older to possess a concealed firearm or other weapon for self-defense or other lawful purpose within the interior of a private conveyance, without a license, if the firearm or other weapon is securely encased or is otherwise not readily accessible for immediate use. Nothing herein contained prohibits the carrying of a legal firearm other than a handgun anywhere in a private conveyance when such firearm is being carried for a lawful use. Nothing herein contained shall be construed to authorize the carrying of a concealed firearm or other weapon on the person. This subsection shall be liberally construed in favor of the lawful use, ownership, and possession of firearms and other weapons, including lawful self-defense as provided in s. 776.012.
Don't worry about it. keep your receipt in a safe place. Cops have better things to do than check serial numbers on firearms. If you get stopped by the cops, as long as you are doing what you should, and the weapon is stored according to state law, you will not have a problem.Okay so I just got my first gun last week and I know u don't need a permit but how would a police officer know it isn't stolen and it really is yours? When I picked it up from my ffl he said u don't register guns in Florida, how does that work??
For the most part no, always check for yourself. Places like kali or NY or illinois, i beleive you have to.Okay cool, one more question, aren't we supposed to get firearms registered tho? Or is that a state by state thing, sorry I'm confused lol
