    Your North Carolina concealed permit is OK here in Florida. There is a reciprocal agreement between many states to recognize another states licenses as valid. Here is a list of states that will recognize your NC permit.

    Permits Honored in Other States

    Permit holders should know that while they can legally carry a concealed handgun while visiting these states, they’re subject to the laws of the state they are visiting and are responsible for learning about those laws.

    States with North Carolina Agreements

    Alabama Kentucky Oklahoma
    Alaska Louisiana Pennsylvania
    Arizona Michigan South Carolina
    Arkansas Mississippi South Dakota
    Colorado Missouri Tennessee
    Delaware Montana Texas
    Florida Nebraska Utah
    Georgia Nevada Virginia
    Idaho New Hampshire Washington
    Indiana New Mexico West Virginia
    Iowa North Dakota Wisconsin
    Kansas Ohio Wyoming


    MY WORST FEAR......THAT WHEN I DIE MY WIFE WILL SELL ALL MY BOATS & FISHING GEAR FOR WHAT I TOLD HER I PAID FOR IT.......

    I may not always agree with what you say,
    but I will always respect your right to be wrong!

    Open carry while you are fishing on the beach is legal in Florida.
