    Generally, I would think not, but that could vary with local statutes and particular locations.

    it varies some places you'd be ok in others not so, it also depends on what the private property is, if it is wide open spaces you shouldn't have problems, if it is a bar in FLA you will

    same theory applies, if out in open country you shouldn't have a problem, in more urban areas you could have issues

    Best advice, check the laws where you are.

    Here : NO .... you can't CC at all without a license, not even if you are the landowner and on your own land. Can open carry as the landowner.

    I believe the best you can do is to check your state laws.

    For a while ago, a NRA instructor told me that in Florida if you do not have a concealed weapons permit you are not allowed to CC at all; that without a permit it is illegal to CC even on your own property. I do not know if this is true or not. If any member knows a credible source of information about this topic it should be very much appreciated if he/she please posted it.

    It would seem that your instructor is correct. The FL law (see here, section 790.01) looks pretty specific on the matter.

    Bad law, bad, bad law. Got to your corner.

    Here in SD, CC on one's own property is legal without a permit.

    Going to depend on the state laws where your at. Some will allow it if the property owner gives his permission. Others allow only the property owner and immediate family to carry without permit on their own property.

    Good question. Might depend on area. Ask your local pistol-permit office for law in your locale.

    Yes sir, section 790.01 addresses the matter. Thank you so very much for the information.

    I do not know in the "Nazi-Maryland", but obviously a permit is needed in the gun friendly Florida.

    FWIW;

    Here is Michigans answer:

    Question
    Do I need a concealed pistol permit to carry my pistols while walking through the woods near my cabin in Michigan? If not, are there any restrictions on how or where the gun is carried?

    Answer
    MCL 750.227 allows you to carry a pistol concealed or not if you are in your own home or on your own property. If you do not own the land, no license is needed to carry a pistol as long as it is exposed. However, should a person cover the pistol during inclement weather with a jacket or coat or get into a vehicle, the pistol would be concealed, and the carrier would place himself in jeopardy unless he possessed a concealed pistol permit. Per Attorney General's opinion #3158 dated February 14, 1945, a holster, in plain view, is not considered concealed. Department of Natural Resources regulations require a person to have a valid Michigan hunting license if in an area inhabited by wildlife, while in possession of a firearm.

    According to this Melbourne, Florida Attorney's website there are exceptions.

    Exceptions to carrying a concealed weapon without a license

    There are some circumstances where you can carry a concealed weapon without a license. Below is a list of the exceptions:

    Individuals who have firearms at their home or privately owned place of business
    Members of clubs organized for collecting or exhibiting antique firearms
    Individuals engaged in hunting, fishing or camping who have the proper hunting licenses
    Individuals engaged in lawful manufacturing, repairing or dealing in firearms

    These exceptions are very narrow and apply to very specific instances. It is best to apply for a concealed weapons license if you need to carry a weapon on a regular basis.

    Thanks for the advice...Having a yard sale this weekend. Usually pull in about 2k in cash.
    I think I'll just keep a shotgun handy (but out of sight) in lieu of carrying.....
