    Hotel Convention in Florida

    I am going to be in Tampa, Florida for about a week for a convention being held in a nation hotel chain.

    I've compared the Florida laws to what I'm used to in Georgia, and other than being extra sure to make sure I remain concealed, I haven't come across anything of note.

    Any words of wisdom or "gotchas" to be wary of?

    Your hotel room is the same as your home. Protect yourself, as needed.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    I thought the OP meant in the convention.....if it is just for the room...make sure they have a safe if you plan on leaivng it in the room!

    Your car is also your home, protect it as needed. Oh, and be careful, Tampa is a sketchy place(even seemingly 'good' areas can be deadly)

    No problem on the bars. I prefer to drink alone anyways. No I don't have a problem, I just hate people.

    I plan on carrying during the convention, which is going to be primarily a couple days of classes and presentations, mainly because I just don't want to leave it in the room.

    I adore Columbia restaurant in Ybor city (I'll do lunch). A meal there is really the only time I plan to venture away from the hotel if I can help it. While I am relatively familiar with Tampa, this will be my first time carrying out of state. Thanks for the well wishes.

    well then you must be the life of the party at a convention...

    signs prohibiting carry do not preclude carrying...you may still carry but if discovered and asked to leave you are required to or face trespass charges...its a non issue really as there is little chance you will be discovered if you are concealed...your choice....

    Restaurants are okay just not bars, but don't drink; and make sure you pick up some cigars in Ybor City for your friends! Safe trip!
