    I wouldn't call it an open carry law. More like protection against being charged with open carry if you accidently expose your concealed handgun.

    http://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill...nt/688734/HTML

    34 It is not a violation of this section for a person licensed to
    35 carry a concealed firearm as provided in s. 790.06(1), and who
    36 is lawfully carrying a firearm in a concealed manner, to briefly
    37 and openly display the firearm to the ordinary sight of another
    38 person, unless the firearm is intentionally displayed in an
    39 angry or threatening manner, not in necessary self-defense.

    I agree with ozzy, ccw in NV, and would not consider open carry b/c it gives the advantage to anyone with criminal intent and gives dogooders a reason to make trouble.
    Shoot what u carry and carry what u shoot.

    New law clarifies accidental weapon exposure issue; goes into effect Oct. 1 Senate Bill 234, And tell Senator Greg Evers, R-Crestview Thanks for getting it done for us. He has been pushing this bill for us, Back from 2009. And on Oct-1-2011,We are free.

    I would not open carry even if we could in Texas.

    IMHO It's a big advantage to carry concealed.

    Ya I don't see to many doing it, But now if someone shirt go's up showing it. Now they won't get a ticket. I don't won't people to know, How can I get the bad guy off guard.

    But I do seeing people that have a pistol,That has custom laser engraving, Things like that.
