No license? Don't carry a gun in FL! Your visit may last much longer than expected take you to places far worse than the abandoned parts of Miami.

New to the forum and going to post in the new members section soon.
I just wanted to tell you to stay away from Miami Dade. It's getting really out of hand down there and we have had multiple officers being shot at or shot. I live in the Davie area and it's pretty peaceful and nice over here.
Also if you go to the West Palm area don't go too far west. There is an area there called Bell Glades that most of the officers that come into my local gun shop say is awful and almost "wild-west" like.
Ft. Lauderdale north is really nice and a good clean area. But as with anywhere you live, there are places that you want to avoid. Hope you enjoy our state!

Georgia resident here... I used paper fingerprinting and got my FL license in 6 weeks. Can't get much faster than that. Georgia took 3 months.

FLSquirrelHunter - Good explanations on "Castle Doctrine" or "Stand your ground" or whatever you want to call it. IANAL nor did I sleep at a HI Express last night but I do see too many comments that think that in states that have these laws it gives them a right to shoot pretty much anyone they want to.
One thing that people don't take into account is that the laws are much more specific than what one would think. You may be in the right and eventually found not-guilty in a court of law for shooting someone but that doesn't mean that you can't be arrested or sued. Your actions may fall under the CD but it will be up to you to convince a jury of it and that can get very expensive.

Since you already have allot of advise on CCL in Florida, I’ll forgo it, and instead restate what Captain Crunch said by read the law.
And I really like the Fl Squirrel Hunter examples and explanation of the use of Deadly Force for Lawful Self-Defense.
What I will tell you is, I was born and raised, in North Miami and moved away from there for several reasons including:
Cost of living
Cost of housing
Violent crime rate
Gang activity and crime
Some have recommended moving further north of Miami, and I highly agree, unless your work is in south Miami area. If so I’d look at Key Largo, because Homestead is basically just south Miami.

if you're cleared and it's a "good shoot" you canot be sued.
That's part of the beauty of the Castle and Stand laws.
The Brady bunch hates us.
Ever see the Brady sign on I-75?

Correct...this is true IN FLORIDA, and I've quoted the statute once or twice here. Didn't feel like repeating myself. If someone else wants to look, its in the use of force statutes.

Miami Dade is not as bad as everyone thinks. As long as you don't make the stupid trips into the bad neighborhoods (everyone knows which ones they are) you are usually fine. My family has lived in dade for bout 50 years and never had an issue at all.

You could always live outside the city to stay away from bad areas. In my case, I live about 175 miles outside the city, just to be sure.

Others have well covered the laws and rules. Let me add one and answer one of your qustions that has been skipped by most responders.Being faced with lethal force does not mean only guns, knives, pipes etc. It can also be a "Disparity of Force", meaning that if the attacker can apply lethal force, for example a strapping young thug attacking an elderly person, a handicapped person or a small person, it can be presumed that he could whip your butt bad enough to kill you.
As to whether or not I feel "Comfy" leaving my gun in a locked car, the answer is NO, but at times I have no choice, I lock mine in my center console under the lift out tray. A lockable and secured box would be preferable.
