Any experts here?....Does anyone live in one state and legally enjoy the gun freedoms in another state where they have a vacation-summer home? I assume all states are different but does anyone know about Pa. or Fla for example.

I'm not an expert, nor do I play one on t.v., and for that matter I didn't even stay at a holiday inn express last night, but the folks at packing.org report that Florida and Pennsylvania have reciprocity regarding CCW permits, so a resident permit in one state should be good in another.

Regarding simple posession of a firearm within a residence, in the states that I have looked it up a rented house or motel room is treated as the property of the renter for purposes of whether or not they may posess firearms.

Long guns are generally no problem other than a few states like MA, or NJ. I'm actually from NYC, and my parents bought a home upstate shortly after I was born for the weekends. My dad and brother are both NYC residents but have bought guns that are kept at the home upstate, and it's my official residence now.

I live in NY near the PA & NJ borders. I am a retired LEO and until recently, I would not carry consealed in either state. PA is a bit more tolerant then most states while NJ is absolutely anti gun.
I lived in Florida right after retireing and did not find the laws in this regard favorable in any way.
Keep in mind that in just about all the states your right to carry is completely lost the minute you have an adult beverage. PA is particularly tough on this and it will not matter if you are a LEO or not.
Packing.org has alot of great info on this subject but there are alot of grey areas and I don't think you can completely depend on the accuracy of the info or interpretations. Best to fly under the radar in all cases and stay out of the RED/BLUE lights.
I have often heard " I would rather be tried by twelve then carried by six ".
Great point but you may want to change your mind after the trial!
