    I talked with a LEO buddy of mine.
    His understanding is that if the weapon has a loaded magazine, the revolver has a loaded cylinder, or the shotgun a loaded feed tube the weapon can be considered loaded as it is readily available to fire with only minor action required to do so.
    In order to be determined as unloaded the ammunition must be separated physically from the weapon ie mag removed, cylinder empty, feed tube empty....no round in the barrel or cleared and safed

    Legal Question, just asking, is any law not following the constitution enforceable? Believe 2nd amendment does not mention cylinders, magazines, or weapon design.

    Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137
    The Constitution for these united States is the Supreme Law of the Land.
    Any law that is repugnant to the
    Constitution is null and void of law and effect from its inception. 1.
    Do you have a right? 2. If you have a
    right and it is violated, do the laws of the country afford a remedy? 3.
    If you have a remedy at law is it a
    mandamus issuing from this court? The opinion of the court on all three
    questions was yes, yes, yes.

    FL statute term "loaded" isn't defined

    I think it's stated just how they want it. If there's not defined then they're not held to it

    That would be how I would define it. Racking the slide is minor action. Now to really throw a curve ball, is a S&W 645 with empty cases in the mag loaded? Answer would be no as when loaded into the chamber, the rounds could not fire. Older S&W semi-autos would chamber empty rounds if racked. Good training aid for failure to fire skills.

    Thank goodness we don't live in Washington, D.C. where they are prosecuting people for having empty shell casings! I have yet to figure the logic of that...
