Carrying a long gun in Florida is not difficult. You may not open carry any firearm in Florida, unless you’re involved in or traveling to or from certain specific activities.
Whether or not you have a Concealed Weapon or a Firearm License, you can carry a long gun either open or concealed, when traveling to and from and of course, during the following: fishing, hunting, or camping, as well as while going to or from shooting if you are regularly enrolled member of a target, skeet, or trap shooting club. Also, if you are firing weapons for testing or target practice under safe conditions, you may carry a long gun.
Significantly, while traveling to and from these activities, if you stop to run an errand, go out to eat, or for any other purpose unrelated to “travelling,” the law treats it as if you’re not travelling to these events. However, if you’re in a car, there is no need to worry as long guns may be kept in a vehicle in Florida for a lawful purpose, either concealed and securely encased or openly.
