    Yep, yes, and no problem.

    Alabama is a traditional open carry state. The only thing preventing it from being one of our “Gold Star” open carry states is their prohibition against carrying openly in a vehicle without a permit.

    Your current FL permit should allow you to carry in your car openly or concealed.
