You can read through FS 790.25 and see if that helps, but it's just vague enough that I'm not going to risk it. I have a concealed carry permit, so I will use it. You want to read FS 790.25 (3) (h) and see how it fits in context with the rest of FS 790.25.
Are you disagreeing with me? Or the guy you quoted. I'm assuming you are disagreeing with me and saying you can not open carry a firearm, only non-stun gun, pepper spray or w/e it said.
However, if you read statue 790.25 (http://flsenate.gov/Laws/Statutes/2013/790.25
), section 3 subsections G and H, it clearly says:
(3) LAWFUL USES.—The provisions of ss. 790.053
and 790.06 do not apply in the following instances, and, despite such sections, it is lawful for the following persons to own, possess, and lawfully use firearms and other weapons, ammunition, and supplies for lawful purposes:
(g) Regularly enrolled members of any organization duly authorized to purchase or receive weapons from the United States or from this state, or regularly enrolled members of clubs organized for target, skeet, or trap shooting, while at or going to or from shooting practice; or regularly enrolled members of clubs organized for modern or antique firearms collecting, while such members are at or going to or from their collectors’ gun shows, conventions, or exhibits;
(h) A person engaged in fishing, camping, or lawful hunting or going to or returning from a fishing, camping, or lawful hunting expedition;
790.53 is the exempted open carry statue http://flsenate.gov/Laws/Statutes/2012/790.053
