I noticed that one of the main reason is because I enjoy doing so.
Maybe is the kid in me.When I work long days and dont go anyplace after awhile I miss carrying my gun. It is like a cool watch that someones has. Its not for telling time but makes one happy.
There are thousands of Canadians visiting FL each year. I bet they dont care that many law-abiding citizens carry guns. Im also pretty sure that if they could change the law they would not . And I think most feel as safe as in their country. Maybe a few of them wish they could conceal carry at least when they are on this side of the fence

Because there are evil people willing to do harm to myself and my loved ones. I'm willing to protect them with all means necessary and that includes my gun.

I carry, because I can.

If you guys where aware of were I came from, the fear in the streets, the unrelenting and unavoidable violence just because you happen to be spending some time with a woman.

I often think that back there, was when I needed to carry.

Because I can and I believe that every competent, law abiding adult citizen should have the training to carry safely...and do it. No doubt there would be more gun related accidents, but far fewer gun related (and non-related) crimes. Even criminals hesitate to place themselves in danger of being shot.

I carry because I refuse to be a victim! I drive a truck & lots of times have to park in less than ideal places.

On my tour this year, I will have to leave my guns at home. I am riding through Canada up to Alaska, and back through Canada again. So for that stretch of road in each direction, I will have to forget about self-defense [ Ut Oh! I offended someone! ] I am not happy about it, but I do want to ride to Alaska and back again, and unfortunately, someone [ put ] Canada between the states of Alaska and Washington.

Here in Florida the state has decided to accept Quebecs French only written. driver licenses because of the large amount of tourism Canada brings.
How about returning the favor and allowing US citizens with a valid permit to legally transport a hand gun even if it has to be locked and unloaded ( for those who desire to carry a gun while in Alaska)
To make sure the gun is not forgotten in CDN have the person put in an escrow four times what the gun is worth. Return his money upon reentrance to the US

Today Im going to a concert in Daytona. They have a free one every weekend. Thousands attend. It is great outdoors time. I do carry a gun as there is no sign against it. The parking building doesn't look like a safe place, in occasions you have an officer around.

An Escrow account! I like that idea! "Here you go, Canada. Here is $3,000.00 to hold onto, until I EXIT your country with the same gun I carried INTO your country. Give it back to me at the northern border, and if I don't ride the ferry home, I'll let you hold onto it again for the return trip..."

They will never go for that.

I have the ccg card. I don't carry yet because I don't what the laws are on how much you can resize a coach gun legally. Seriously though. I don't have my cc bought yet looking at the options of what everyone considers a cc gun is.

A CC gun is one you can hide somewhere on your person.

You definitely have to consider clothing, and PRACTICE with an UNLOADED GUN. You want one that doesn't "print" which means that when you move around, your clothing doesn't pull against the profile of the gun to reveal that you are carrying it. You want one that will allow you to sit down without jamming the barrel into your thigh. You want a pistol that is effective in stopping an attacker, but not a giant weight you have to lug around.

I carry a Glock 27 most of the time. It is not a conceal carry gun in the summer, because it is rather "fat" but in the winter, it fits nicely under cold weather clothing. in the summer, I carry a DiamondBack DB9 with wicked hollow points.

I have a Ruger LC9s, as it is fairly small and thin.


Hydrashok for CC, round nose for practice.


if, you do decide to carry, I highly advise that you get a legal insurance package.
you own that bullet when it leaves the barrel, and if it hits a child across the street?
you go to jail.


There are several providers of such, this is the one I buy when I carry.

Printing is made such a big deal of.
Id like to know how many have received a ticket for it.
In my opinion it is when someone CLEARLY can say you're carrying a gun. A wet or very tight t-shirt.
In a state that only allows open carry a cop would consider a gun conceal if he cant see it. Cover it with a wet T-shirt and he still consider it concealed.

If a cop asks yo if you have a gun in there then the gun IS concealed.
Fl law doesn't say anything about printing and allows a brief , nonthreatening exposure of the gun such as when you reach to get something from a high shelf or un-donning a coat.

Soooo what to do in a state where you have both concealed and open carry. Could you say when you are reaching and uncover the weapon that at that time, "I was carrying open.">:)
