My son is a resident of Florida. He is a minor league baseball player who was just assigned to play in Alabama.

He holds a Florida CCW permit.  Can he legally carry in Alabama?

I've tried to research, but I'm just getting more confused.

Thanks for the help.

it would probably end up being much more restrictive than the ones you can get in the south east, I mean you would be letting California, Maine and the federal (like nancy) tell AL govs and such how guns should be handled, or lack of handled.

Not sure what you are refering too, but I do know that each county's permit issued is different and some are the same.

okay, I know you have probably heard this already. I am from oklahoma and will be going to alabama for vacation.  I understand that I can carry concealed there with my license.  Does alabama have any laws about printing or if my shirt happens to come up and my weapon is temporarily exposed?  In Oklahoma i dont have to worry about that because we have open carry, but im not sure about your fine state.  Any clarification would be of great help

Alabama is an open carry state as long as you are on foot (not in a vehicle). Apparently people have been charged with creating a public disturbance or disorderly conduct for carrying openly.  The governor just signed SB286 that addresses that issue along with lots of other gun law changes.  

http://legiscan.com/AL/text/SB286/id/849320/Alabama-2013-SB286-Enrolled.pdf

New laws are effective August 1 2013

AL 2013 SB286

(c) It shall be a rebuttable presumption that the mere carrying of a visible pistol, holstered or secured, in a public place, in and of itself, is not a violation of  this section.

Just to double check, but my VA concealed handgun permit is good to go in Alabama now, correct?

So Florida does or does not honor Alabama carry permits?
