    Legalities in FL?

    What's the minimum barrel length for a shotgun in FL?
    Where is it measured from?

    Thanks!
    Jeff

    This is nation wide, not sure where it's measured from.

    18" is federal law, as unpecador notes. Include chamber in measurement. If cutting, use 18.5" as minimum, lest you end up like Randy Weaver.

    Overall length can't be under 26".

    Yea you don't want to end up like Weaver who's wife was shot in the face with a high powered rifle while she was holding her baby in her arms. I think it's 18" including chamber but I would check on that.
