First, thanks for all that you do to keep our great state safe. I've had my permit in FL for nearly 5 years but have never found/received a clear-cut answer to in-car carry. If I don't have my handgun on my person, must I then have it "securely encased" like the law specifies for someone without a permit or do I have any other options? Thanks. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
