What Weapons Can I Carry With a Florida Concealed Carry Permit?

November 11, 20221 min read

If you have your Florida concealed carry permit you've probably wondered "What types of weapons am I legally allowed to carry concealed?"

Florida Concealed Carry Laws outline five items that we are allowed to conceal with a Florida concealed carry permit. Here's what the law says;

Florida Statutes 790.06(1) … For the purposes of this section, concealed weapons or concealed firearms are defined as a handgun, electronic weapon or device, tear gas gun, knife or billie, but the term does not include a machine gun...

Five Different Weapons...

According to this statute we are only allowed to carry a;

  1. Handgun

  2. Stun gun or Taser

  3. Pepper spray

  4. Knife

  5. Baton

A handgun would include any pistol including an AR-15 or AK pistol in my opinion.

It would be really difficult to conceal carry an AK pistol, but it would be cool.

You Need Other Options...

I believe everyone should carry a non-lethal self-defense option. Your only two self-defense options shouldn't be to do nothing or to kill someone. You need something in the middle, like pepper spray, a taser, or a baton.   

If you haven't gotten your Florida Concealed Weapons Permit yet, I can help.

That's all I have for today. So until next time keep training and stay safe...
