Florida Hunter Safety Course


Storing a Firearm

If you have firearms in your home, protect your family and friends by ensuring that both your firearms and ammunition legally and safely stored at all times. A gunsafe is like a mini version of a bank safe - some are even fireproof. It is the best storage option. Not only does it protect firearms from being stolen, but it also keeps them out of the hands of careless adults and children alike.

In Florida, it is unlawful, and punishable by imprisonment and fines, for any adult to store or leave a firearm in any place within the reach or easy access of a minor under 18 years of age or to knowingly sell or otherwise transfer ownership or possession of a firearm to a minor or a person of unsound mind.

All firearms and ammunition should be stored separately and in a secure location.
