    Help, going on vacation.

    I am Florida resident who is waiting on my concealed carry permit to come in but about to go on vacation. I was thinking of keeping my handgun holstered in my truck's center console with one in the chamber and ready to go. Will I have a problem doing this in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, and North Carolina? Can I cross state lines this way? What about in the state parks?

    That's alright in SC, not in NC. Here in NC it has to be in plain sight, if it is readily accessible and not clearly visible it is considered concealed.

    That is still considered a concealed weapon in NC. Doesn't matter if it is unloaded or not, it is out of sight and readily accessible.

    Go to handgunlawus.com. It will give you very good info. You are ok in Georgia and I believe Tenn but I do not know about the others. Google up handgun laws and you will find handgun laws in the US by Wikipedia. Another very helpful sight. Gives all of the basic info per state and you can print it out. Good Luck and safe travel.

    And now I will put in my standard disclaimer: Call the state police when in doubt. Better to get the answer directly from the people who could be arresting you than from people, no matter how well intentioned their answers are, on any forum. "But Bigshooter71 on HandGunForum said it was OK for me to carry here" is not a good defense.

    I would also highly advise against using Wikipedia for any legal advice, gun related or not.

    I absolutely, positively, 100% with a shed of doubt agree!!! As a person not in touch with different state laws, always make a phone call. If not to the state police, to the attorney gen. office. Laws get changed, in a matter of frequency in which we as citizens would make our heads spin. But please do not put your faith in a websites returned results. Always take the extra mile in regards to this. Who knows, who may be updating the info, or when it was updated. Or if it's even correct for that matter. And what's even worse, is that you interpreted the law differently. Always make the call!
