Let’s look at this scenario as an example of legally armed citizens traveling with guns. You legally bought a concealed carry handgun, earned your Florida Concealed Carry License as a resident of Florida, and also got your Pennsylvania Non-Resident License to Carry Firearm from the state of Pennsylvania.
