Default Long Guns

So I think I pretty much well versed on Florida hand gun carry laws. I dont own any long guns. Thinking we moved way rural a few years now may get a 12 ga shotgun for home. In Florida lets say your rural and you have a bump in the night on your property. Are you legally allowed to have let's say a 12 gauge with you fully in plain sight. Being a conceal carry guy for ever just wanted to get heads up on long guns in Florida.

You will need to check the Florida Penal Code.

I would imagine that the open carry/concealed carry handgun rules are very different from the long gun rules. Never confuse the two.

One of the best "Bump in the night" responses I've heard of was a Florida LGS owner who was licensed to own fully automatic firearms and whose home was next to his gun store. When the silent alarm went off, he responded with a 12ga, an M-16, and a 9mm sub-machine gun, IIRC.


I think slinging a long gun over your shoulder on your Florida property is safe.

According to Fl law, as long as you are legal to possess a firearm, have permission to do so on the private property (which I assume you give yourself on your own property) you can open carry anything on said private property.
