    i'm flying in but plan on coming back in car for a road trip, and i'm aware of the law requiring that the gun be stored in a locked container, etc. i have it all planned out, have friends coming with me who own guns and know what they're doing. i'm currently in the process of contacting both CO and FL gun stores but just wanted a second opinion, gun laws can get tricky and i want the most info i can get, even if i have to take it with a grain of salt.

    to answer your question, i just wanted to take the opportunity of this trip to buy a shotgun and go shooting/hunting somewhere nicer than FL, lol, and with friends who know more than I do. CO forests beat FL forests any day. plus if i bought the gun in FL i'd have to go through the trouble of dealing with the airport but driving back should be a simpler process.

    thank you again for your response!
    You are welcome. I believe helping other gun owners stay lawful and safe is the responsibility of all gun owners.

    As you can imagine we do get a lot of trolls in here and I believe some law enforcement trolls trying to get help circumventing the laws. For the most part their stories will not pass the sniff test. Trolls have an odor. They generally post once and then vanish to watch and see if we will help them to break the law.... We won't of course but they do try pretty often. Makes it hard to spot the legit questions from the entrapment questions.

    I apologize to you but I did have a suspicion. Now I believe that my suspicion was wrong. I'm Sorry for sniffing you. Flying out and driving back did not occur to me and you are right about the simplicity of your plan.

    Good luck on your hunt.

    Can we get some sort of automatic age filter on these questions?

    Why? 18 is legal for long guns in most areas.

    I know I’m late to the discussion, but one piece of advice has been neglected.

    You should be familiar with any firearm you are going out to hunt and have some fun with.

    I’d recommend you buy in florida and get familiar with safe operation.

    You don’t want to be walking around with a loaded gun, safety in the wrong position. You didn’t say if you were getting a break action, pump or semi auto, but you need to know what to do if you gave a misfire or jam.

    It’s not that hard to fly with a shotgun.

    The other option, if your friends know their guns, chances are they have one they can loan you and you’ll have the benefit of while the gun is new to you, someone in the party would know how to handle it safely.

    Safety is always the first consideration in fire arms. Then other things. Fit for use, personal preference, and travel convenience.

    I took my sons hunting and we’d get a few birds. After we started shooting trap, skeet and sporting clays...they don’t miss anymore and both clay and real birds are tremendous fun.

    Hope your friend has a good bird dog or two!

    Have a safe fun trip!

    Good move to talk to gun shops on both ends of the trip!

    thank you so much! in fact i do agree with everything you said. i've done tons of research on shotguns and have a very clear idea of how they work, and have been taking trips to the shooting range of course to practice. if i do manage to find a shotgun up in CO, I will absolutely do my research ahead of time and all.

    the problem is i have no friends in FL who are into guns like me so it's not as fun having to do all of this alone (hence the trip to CO to see these more knowledgable friends), but hey, it's my damn choice what hobbies i wanna pick up and i don't need anybody else (save for everyone on this forum, lol).

    thank you again!

    that's what i've come to find on this website. most people are generally very helpful and kind.

    i don't blame you for the sniff test. this is my first post and i do seem sketchy i realize, lol. i usually read forum posts rather than write them; i'm here because i wanna learn.

    again, thank you so much for everything :^)

    Shotgun clubs are pretty social compared to other clubs.. see if there are any near you.

    Here’s a link to pheasant hunting places in florida... you might call one and tell them you’d like to guide. Might open some doors..
