I could get transferred to Florida and am curious about the handgun laws there.
If this is not the place to ask can you refer me to the correct place.
I own a couple registered handguns and want to make sure I stay legal.
Can you carry in vehicle? can you have one in your residence?
If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.
About the only thing you can't do is open carry in FL.

FL firearm laws fall under statute 790. FS 790.25 in particular covers vehicle carry.

FS 776 covers use of deadly force.

If it comes to fact you are moving to FL, I suggest applying for a Conceal Weapons and Firearm License in advance. Then once you establish residency, you need only change your address of record with the license issuing department. It can take up to 90 days to have the license issued, so account for that. Otherwise, an out of state permit honored by FL will be honored for 90 days after you establish residency (get FL DL, register to vote, etc.), which should allow for issue of a FL CWFL.

Demographics are not on Florida 2 A supporters side however.. They came within a whisker of electing a truly radical leftist governor last cycle.
Florida is getting close to the brink of radical gun restriction because of the way they vote in the cities there.. bob
If your a veteran you go to the front of the line for a carry permit. When I moved here 5 years ago it took just under two weeks for my permit to arrive. No tests or classes needed.
As OldVet and sgb pointed out, go directly to the source. Overall, we're still pretty gun friendly down here.
