    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


    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.



    (h) A person engaged in fishing, camping, or lawful hunting or going to or returning from a fishing, camping, or lawful hunting expedition;

    Progressive dementia is now a regressive presidential qualification.

    A white says the n word and is chastised for it, a black rapper raps over and over and over ad nauseam on his albums the degrading and demeaning n word and is praised for his music and rewarded with million of dollars with not a peep from the peanut gallery. Where is the outrage for the black rap albums full of the n word? It got lost in their double standard.

    If it is on an opened container without a lid, door or cover, it is open carry that is not legal in your vehicle without a permit

    A concealed carry permit does not allow you to carry a gun openly, either in your car or out. With a permit, you can carry a gun in your car such that it is not "visible to the normal sight" of another person. Without a permit you can carry a gun in your car so long as it is "securely encased."

    “Securely encased” means in a glove compartment, whether or not locked; snapped in a holster; in a gun case, whether or not locked; in a zippered gun case; or in a closed box or container which requires a lid or cover to be opened for access.

    so much wrong here

    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.
