Trip from OH to FL...no CCW, one overnight.
I posted in another subforum here asking about training for my fiance who's moving to FL on Saturday. As a present, I bought him his first handgun, but now I'm starting to consider the logistics and I'm getting nervous.
I won't be going with him; he's driving down with family and siblings. He is driving his own car, but there will be three other people in it. His parents have another vehicle with some more family in it. They'll be making one overnight stop. He does not have an Ohio CCW license.
He will be passing through Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida. The overnight stay will be in Georgia.
I'm trying to figure out the best way to transport it, but I'm drowning in the various regulations. Handgunlaw.us was kind of helpful, but a lot of it pertained to loaded guns or only referred to concealed weapons. I'm also lost about what to do with that overnight stay. I definitely think it's a bad idea to let it sit in the car. Is it better for me to wait and bring it to him when I fly down in a few weeks? Any suggestions/advice you all have would be very much appreciated!
Another thing to consider
For the purposes of firearms transactions, once the fiance moves to Florida, and is present in Florida with the intent of making Florida a home, he becomes a resident of Florida. Then, for an Ohio resident to bring a handgun to Florida for the purpose of transferring ownership, the transer would have to occur at a Florida FFL. In order for that transfer to occur, the recipient would be required to produce Florida identification.
Now, if you actually give him the gun in Ohio, and then he moves to Florida and you store the gun for him. Then take it to Florida and return his gun to him, that is legal without an FFL.
