Hi!

After some time in The Great White North, we're moving back to The States--where it's warm, with a gulf or ocean view and CCW. We're checking out beach-condos in Florida and South Carolina.

After our two-day drive, we'll be in the Sarasota area for a week, followed by a few days in South Carolina.

Gulf? Ocean? Wife and I don't know yet.

Funny. Florida and South Carolina are two of the few places where I can't carry.

If it's OK with you, I have a few questions:

It is legal to carry a standard size Spydeco in a pocket with the clip showing in Florida?

I know that I can keep my handgun loaded in the glovebox or console of our car. And I know that I can keep my handgun loaded in the hotel room. Does this extend to concealed holstering in a private lanai? Private dock? or, is it legal only within the hotel room/suite?

Also, which range/retail gun store(s) should I visit in the Bradenton/Sarasota area?

One more thing. Is there any truth to something I heard yesterday--that Florida is considering removing the "resident" only clause from its CC law?

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the forum V65Magnafan :thumsup. I hope you settle in Florida.

I don't think you should have a problem with this. Most people won't notice or even know what it is. As for the legality of it I'll check further.

The word private is important here. As long as it's private to you only and not other guests.

Welcome to the group.

I am not sure what resident clause you are talking about. I believe if you are a legal resident of the US you can apply.

Welcome!
How long is the blade on the Spyderco? The last time I talked to a LEO friend (a while ago) it was supposed to be legal at 3in or shorter w/o a ccw.

As for Gulf or Atlantic. Gulf, but I'm biased since since I grew up near it:)
