    FL Security guard (can open carry)

    This may have been discussed in other threads, but I couldn't find anything on it when I searched. If I missed it somehow, I'm sorry.

    My question is: Obviously in FL, open carry is prohibited. If you have a Class G security license, it's the opposite. You are required to open carry. What if you have a CWP, and have a Class G Security license? Can I open carry all the time if I choose? Do I have to concealed carry unless I'm working? (I am planning on taking the class for knowledge, not for a career path).

    I would love the option of open carry, if at all possible, as well. What's the law on this?

    Only on the job. Once you finish your tour, you hav conceal the weapon if you have a CCW or secure the weapon if you don't.

    BTW, I would also reccomend you get rid of at least you uniform shirt if you are going to carry concealed, ditto for jackets that may look like you belong to a LEO. Some idiot may accuse you of impersonating a police officer.

    Just curious, why do you want to open carry?

    That's the last thing I would want to do, but I would like to know your reasons.

    I went though the D+G training, my instructor gave me some good advice. Get 2 handguns, one as your work peice and one as your carry piece so theres no doubt your not open carrying off work, or concealing on, etc. I open carry at work all day (gun shop) then throw on a shoot me first vest just to get home, then switch guns.
