    Question about Florida Law

    I am posting this for a buddy of mine that is not a part of the formum.
    Anyway I remember a thread about florida laws that said somthing along the lines that you could carry in florida ( can't remmeber if it was concealed or open) while camping, fishing or hunting. Could someone please post the link to the thread or tell me what the statue is that deals with this. As he would like to know the statue if approached by a LEO. I tried to search it but was unable to find it. my buddy is going camping but would still like to be protected till his permit arives.
    Thanks
    P.S. He sent his application in on June 25th and still has not recieved any notification either way.

    Yeah, I believe I posted that. The link to the FL statute are below. The section your refer to is FS 790.25(3)(h). So, no CCW required. 790.06 is the Concealed Carry section and that is what the exception is to.


    [QUOTE]790.25 Lawful ownership, possession, and use of firearms and other weapons.--

    (1) DECLARATION OF POLICY.--The Legislature finds as a matter of public policy and fact that it is necessary to promote firearms safety and to curb and prevent the use of firearms and other weapons in crime and by incompetent persons without prohibiting the lawful use in defense of life, home, and property, and the use by United States or state military organizations, and as otherwise now authorized by law, including the right to use and own firearms for target practice and marksmanship on target practice ranges or other lawful places, and lawful hunting and other lawful purposes.

    ....

    (3) LAWFUL USES.--The provisions of ss. 790.053 and 790.06 do not apply in the following instances, and, despite such sections, it is lawful for the following persons to own, possess, and lawfully use firearms and other weapons, ammunition, and supplies for lawful purposes:

    (h)A person engaged in fishing, camping, or lawful hunting or going to or returning from a fishing, camping, or lawful hunting expedition;

    Ouch! I sent mine in on August 15th... and still no word either.

    Here's a post from a few weeks ago. I have since carried a few times while fishing and will carry this weekend while camping.

    Wow, I know this is off topic, but ran into a lot of bad news in this thread. I just recently applied, confirmed delivery on 9/25, and sent it in along with a money order which are void after 90 days. Is there a chance they might not get to it in time?

    No they cash in the money orders and checks right away and then stick your application back into the pile. My check was cashed 12 days after sending it, and I got it on the 47th day

    I received mine about two weeks ago and I sent in my application on June 8th. Florida law allows thirty days to make sure the application is complete. Then ninety days from the receipt of the application or additional information to issue the permit. They are going over the time frame allowed by Statute but I don't see anyone complaining. As I understand it they are receiving a record number of applications every day. The checks are cashed as soon as they are recieved and the application is entered into their tracking system noting receipt of the permit fee. The FDLE has to do the background check and I can imagine they are also swamped.
