I know that even without a CCW license, I can have my weapon in my car, as long as it's "encased" or otherwise "not readily accessible."

My question: With a CCW license, must my weapon be actually concealed on my body, or can it be concealed, for example, readily accessible under my seat, or between the seats?

Thanks.

Keep it covered and your good to go. No requirement for encased or on the body with a CWFL, just can’t be visible.

This. Just figure out where that off-body carried piece might land in the event of an accident. Or worse, in the case of an intentional collision.

One on the hip and one in the car. Problem solved.

With a CWFL, you could theoretically drive around with a gun in your hand as long as it was concealed "from the ordinary sight of another person".

Welcome to FCC from Palm Beach County, SRQ! :wave

Since you've now made you first post to FCC, without an introduction, please take the time to post you're own Introduction to FCC so the members will get to know you. You can do that by going to the Introduce Yourself section of The Front Office and start your very own introduction thread. Then you'll find that lots of other FCC members will know to chime in to properly welcome you to the forum, and will be more responsive in answering questions!

In case you weren't aware, you can stay current on pertinent Florida Statutes regarding use of force and firearms law by going right to the source using these links for Chapter 776 - Justifiable Use of Force and Chapter 790 - Weapons and Firearms. I'd also like to suggest you obtain your own copy of FLORIDA FIREARMS Law, Use & Ownership by Jon Gutmacher!

Finally, I would like to recommend you consider joining Florida Carry and join the effort to protect the rights of Floridians to keep and bear arms!

Again, welcome to FCC! :grin

Joe, I thought securely encased meant at a minimum in a zippered case or in a holster with a "snap", sitting on the passenger seat for instance. So can we have the weapon on the seat and just covered with a cloth?

With your CWFL, yes. Without, no.

Many of us (with a CWFL) will find ourselves driving through certain areas with the gun on the seat, under the thigh. Sometimes with the hand already on the gun, ready to rock.

YMMV

It is best to carry in your vehicle, in an easily assessable holster on your person. Un aXX, you are armed, hit a tree, you still have a weapon. FBI Gun Fight in Florida anyone.

Gun in hand, under the thigh? SAS Holster!

OK let me tell all of a crash I was in.
Dr Phillips Bld. 2 years ago. A VW SUV rented (Just!) from the airport, no lights (7 PM) decided to turn left through the Boulevard, and hit my front left wheel, wrote my 07 Jeep off.
Paramedics responded first. Then a Deputy from an accident across the road, just wrapping that up.
"My blood pressure is through the roof, and these two want to take me to Dr Phillips Hospital"
Said I. "Plus I am carrying a Glock 19 in a holster on my right hip, and 3 Glocks in a case, plus my Sons Fanny Pack, with two Glocks in it, just dropped him off at the airport"
I asked him if he knew how to make a Glock safe?" He was carrying a Glock 45 I knew.
He did all that, my buddy who was a Cop on Orlando Police was heading over to pick up my guns I had called him. He did, and he did! Six Glocks!
My airbags had deployed, gave me a huge chest bruise.

Reference Licenses? I was not asked for any! Just like my last Country? Canada!
