    From Wisconsin to Florida

    We are driving from Wisconsin to Florida. I have a Wisconsin CCW. I did a load of research on reprocity and it's still a little bit confusing. I realize I can't carry period in Florida. I do know I can have my loaded handgun inside my center console of my truck. When it comes to transporting my loaded gun from my vehicle to my hotel room, do I have to unload it before carrying it in my gun vault? Can I leave it loaded inside the locked box or do I have to take the clip out and the shell in the chamber, give that to my wife and then carry the vault? Thanks for any help!

    Loaded in the lock box, or unloaded in luggage. Both work.

    We are on our way from Florida to Wisconsin, via a stop in IL. I'd like to know why WI. Doesn't have reciprocity with FL.?

    Wisconsin is relatively new to CC. Maybe they're still making reciprocity agreements.

    Wisconsin will only recognize permits from other states only if those states use a similar background check to that used in Wisconsin. Wisconsin DOJ conducts the background check using the NICS database. In Florida, the Dept. of Agriculture handles the permitting process and since that isn't a law enforcement agency, it doesn't have access to the NICS database. Florida will only honor another state's permit, if that state honors Florida. Since Wisconsin doesn't honor Florida's permit, Florida won't honor Wisconsin's permit.

    I need to get going on my FL permit. Make sure to encourage others in WI to get the WI permits going.
