Thread: Moving from Ny to FL

    Make sure you have the guns and ammo in separate cases.
    Plus, while the iphone app is great, I'd still keep a printed copy of state regs in an envelope in a map pocket or somewhere you can get at it. A local sheriff or trooper is NOT going to let you navigate your smart phone while you're bent over with your hands on the hood....but you can tell them where to find it and they can certainly pull the envelope out of the map pocket and read their own state's regs. Make it easy for them. Plus, it will let them know you have taken steps to act in a legal manner and are trying to conduct yourself within the law.

    Good luck in FL. I'm right behind you (in a year or two) once I get all my business licensing taken care of. I've already written all of my Federal, State and Local legislators and outlined WHY I am taking my income (which I currently spend mostly here in NY) and (this one hurts them most) my tax dollars elsewhere...to a state which is more business friendly, doesn't infringe on my freedoms as a law abiding, productive citizen and has a lower cost of living due to less regulation.

  3. I think I'm still a little confused about state laws while passing thru states on my way trip from NY
    to Fl.
    Question: if I lock my gun and ammo in my car in a gun safe (separate and out of reach) can I just drive thu all the states from NY to FL and not have any worries?
    I would need to stop in two gun friendly states to stay at a hotel. What two states would you recommend?
    I have a NY unrestricted and a UT and a Fl non resident liscence.
    My neighbor said the best way is to have a NY dealer ship my gun to FL dealer, but I think that is expensive.
    Thank you.

    You shouldn't have any problem as long as they are in a locked case(s). We've made the trip many times without incident and usually stop only once unless weather forces us to stop for a second night. We're from western NY, so we take different routes depending on weather. In nice weather, we take the route through Pittsburgh, Rt 19 in W Va, I-77, I-26 to I-95 and will stay in either southern W.Va, then in Ga if we stop 2 nights. If only one night, we usually stop around Charlotte, NC. If the weather is bad through the mountains, we'll go the 'eastern' route and if we stop twice, Harrisburg, PA and GA (usually Savannah area). On a one stop trip, we usually stay around Richmond.

    I'm not sure about stopping in PA anymore, now that they do not honor any of my permits....that is, unless I get a free couple hours (and twenty bucks) to make the trip to a County Sherriff's office and get my non-res PA permit. They're a must issue state and I'm told it's a pretty simple process.

    you have already been given the best advise possible here, if you want to listen to an idiotic neighbor go right ahead!

  6. Thank you everyone. Looking forward to living in Florida.

    After 62 years in New York State, my wife and I have sold all our real estate holdings and in 2 months will be heading for Florida also. My wife's parents and sister (and her husband) live in the Punta Gorda area and after 25 years of visiting them there we have decided to join them. Can't handle NYS anymore ...... between the abysmal taxes, high cost of living, and lunatic gun laws, it's high time we get outa' Dodge !

    Well, I worked in engineering for a big telecom company and the money was great and so we raised our family here. But before you know it, 40 years has gone by in a flash. So I retired a little bit ago and we are ready to escape this place.

    Thanks for the info on the CWFL. I presently have a CC permit for NYS (obtained it in 1974). Do you know if that would suffice for the "other acceptable training document that evidences your competency with a firearm" ?

    I'm going to start another thread asking about places to shoot long guns and hand guns around the Punta Gorda area. I know it gets hot/humid down there for a few months in the summer (we've spent a couple weeks at a time with the relatives in summer), but we don't mind that sort of weather at all. Any advice for storing firearms with regard to preventing corrosion (or is it pretty much like storing a firearm anyplace you live) ?
