    What will you do?

    Let's presume that HB 517 and SB 234 both pass as currently written and are signed into law. Open carry is now permitted: How will you approach it?

    Presuming you have a desire to carry openly, how long will you wait to do so? Will you commence immediately, or would you prefer to wait for a test case?

    What actions will you take after passage? I expect, for example, that there will be little issue in Daytona Beach (My current location) as I know StogieC has spent a large amount of time working with the local Police on various open carry events. Thus, they're already familiar with the practice, and less likely to have a gross overreaction.

    In my home County of Sarasota, however, I predict greater resistance and harrassment from the Police. It's a far more strict and uppity County than Volusia. Thus, prior to carrying openly in that county, I think some judicious phone calls to the city/county police may serve to cut off some trouble ahead of time.
