    So the fed law controls when the states you are traveling thru do not allow firearms to be transported etc. But as long as all the states you are going thru allow it, then the federal law never actually kicks in. I did not know that. Thanks.

    I'd just check the off limits places on handgunlaw.us & call it a day. I've done the same trip a few times. No big surprises.

    Florida welcomes you...

    Common sense gun laws (as compared to other states)...
    Armed senior citizens (lots of them)...
    Carry almost anywhere (within reason)...

    Stay armed...almost anywhere...stay safe!

    That is what I have always heard, but am not sure about it or if it has changed.
    That is only for non chl holders traveling from state to state transporting firearms or if a chl holder drives through a state that does not reciprocate with his issuing state then you must unholster unload and locik the firearm in a box in the trunk or cargo compartment with the ammo seperate until you are again in a state that allows you to carry,Texas CHL holders can carry in like 38 other states IIRC
