    Anything omitted from a law is not illegal. By definition.

    we haven't seen the literal wording of the law, yet.

    why do you feel your safety is at such risk that you need to carry a gun in your car?
    Why do people feel the need to carry a handgun?

    What?

    He is in Florida, which has a high concentration of illegals involved with criminal activities, and kidnapping is a serious problem in some South American countries. A criminal may well decide to kidnap first and find out how much trouble it is after it's too late for the victim. Kidnap victims are often released alive in foreign countries, and killed in the US.

    Florida also has a problem with stolen cars being shipped overseas. Or "had". I don't know what the current situation is. Anyhow, the OP sounds like a very tempting target for criminals.

    It's mostly women being kidnapped here now; unfortunately, I believe for human trafficking to Central/South American countries. Too many women fitting the same description (light skin, beautiful, blonde, mid-late 20's) that just go missing and are never found, and no leads ever exist, so whoever is doing it is a pro.

    Anyway, I don't link the OP has to worry too much about kidnapping, but expensive cars DO scream "Break into me! Steal me!" Especially in the wrong neighborhoods. Luckily, in Florida, if someone steals our firearm from our vehicle, we aren't legally responsible for what happens with it afterwards, unlike some other states, so that's not too big of a concern in the grand scheme of things.

    Blakebcg, As far as that gun is concerned, I really hate those types of pistols to be honest. If you want small, look into a Ruger LCP, or any of the many quality sub-compact pistols or if you want a revolver, look into a S&W J-frame or a Ruger LCR. All of these choices will be far safer and more effective than the one you posted earlier.

    Not to be a caliber jerk, but as a primary weapon, 22 anything just doesn't cut it. It's better than a pointy stick, but not by much, in my humble opinion.
    As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper
