    That is what I was getting at. There is a lot of confusion out there concerning the whole thing. Those of us between the ages of 18-21 are disenfranchised often in this state because rather than trying to sort through and understand the confusion LEO, FFLs etc. often just go with what they've been told or their personal opinion. Thanks for your research and for making this available! I've always wanted a quick, easy and verifiable resource to point interested individuals to, what you're working on seems to fit the bill quite nicely.

    Well, if you want to get 'technical'.... concealed carry is also not legal in Florida. :scrutiny:

    Open Carry is not legal in FL even with a permit/license to Carry which is the info I am trying to provide. Concealed carry is legal in FL with a Valid Permit/License to Carry.

    I was mostly joking.... but Open Carry is perfectly legal in certain situations, just like concealed carry is legal in certain situations (one of which is a CWFL.)

    I don't know if my anecdote relates to this specific law, but Washington seems to have some strange ones. I grew up there and spent much of my youth in my friend's dad's gun store and learned much of my knowledge from standing around, listening to the old guys talk. That said, I have no idea if this or any other "knowledge" I gained was accurate.

    I was told that the confusing Washington laws had to do with deer hunting -- that laws were created one piece at a time as people would push the limits while hunting -- and the many laws were created as band-aids. Supposedly, hunters would drive around with loaded rifles, using their headlights to spotlight animals -- then they'd hop out and get it, supposedly not violating laws (because the rifles were supposedly covered by their carry permits). As the story goes, little band-aid laws were gradually created to keep hunters from these loopholes. New law, new loophole. Until the law eventually became so nutty that no one could really function. Some variations of the loopholes involved loaded rifles in the back (outside of the cab).

    I can't totally believe this, but some old guy from Benton County told me it was true, so it must be.

    It looks like this one's run its course.

    Thanks, folks.
