I'm going to Orlando this weekend and I am taking the 9mm. I have my permit. Do I have to put it in the trunk or can I keep it in the glove compartment while I am on the interstate? Also, when I am in the parks, should I keep it in the safe in the hotel? or leave it in the car? since we are using the shuttles?

if you have a conceal carry for florida then the same laws of where you can and cant carry your gun in orlando should be the same as miami

Carry it with you? That is, afterall, what your permit is for.

Hate to bring this back up, but it is the newest one here....If your in your car and your pistol doesn't fit in your pocket, put it in the seat next to you, not concealed = legal. If out and about, carry it concealed (except for the forbidden locations, if you have a concealed carry, you should know them). When storing it in your car, be carful and check laws, one state says if it's in the glove box, the box HAS to be LOCKED, in another it HAS to be UNLOCKED, dumbass political officials, I say hand'em a gun and tell them to come up with the laws by personal trial and error...

Open carry isn't allowed by all states. In fact, it's expressly forbidden in quite a few, Florida being one of them.

wow, that's....I don't know what it is, but...your saying you can't have the gun laying in your passenger seat? I can understand not walking around with it strapped to your hip, seeing as how some people rank guns right up there with heroin, but your car seat? while driving? Or is this a miscommunication?

So, you can have the pistol with you when "conveying" as long as it's in a holster, or secured some other way (sounds like they just don't want you to have a bare pistol sliding around in your car). I can understand that.

Ehh I do it all the time. Mine sits on my lap or on the seat next to me. It stays put for the most part.

what they taught me in my ccw class was that you can "transport" it in your car, regardless of state laws of each state you drive through, as long as it's legal to own a firearm in both the state you're departing from and the state you'll be arriving in.

as far as concealing it, having a ccw gives you the right to have it concealed and loaded on you, or anywhere in your house or car.

and like M4-tty showed, it can be in a case or holster. i keep my handgun in its case and leave it in the passenger seat. i store it with a loaded magazine but none in the chamber. that way, it's safer, but you can still shoot it if you pull it out and work the slide.

and regardless of the law, even if you follow the rules (technically), you might still want to play it extra safe just to save yourself some headache incase you get pulled over and just keep it in your glove box.

as far as the park, if the state you're visiting has reciprocity with your state's ccw, then you should just conceal it while you're at the park.

Depending on the state you have the permit in, that will determine your ability to carry it out of state. The only way to carry a real weapon here is to be law enforcement, or be on duty military. Ca doesn't do concealed weapons, but I believe Nevada does. I wish they did. The fact that anyone could have a gun would make people think twice about disprespecting other people's property.
