    You probably want to check out the Florida section of this forum, and find out if that state has any restrictions you need to abide by being from out of the state.

    I fly Sprit all the time and never have a problem Conceal carrying my firearm on the plane. The Pilots are really nice, they havent had a problem with it yet.

    I thought that Air Marshalls weren't supposed to tell anyone who they are and what they do.

    Shouldn't be a issue; probably adds 5-10 minutes on your trip. I've flown many times, never a problem.
    Besides the airline, check out the TSA website too.

    He had better be an Air Marshal or some sort of LEO or he will be spending much time in club FED!

    If it wasn't an air marshall, how would you even get it past security.

    No, not a air marshal, Border Patrol Agent.

    I use to fly Sprit before and would have to put my gun in my luggage and all that, and it was never a problem that way either.

    That is not really "conceal carrying it on a plane" in my opinion.

    You are not inferring that because the "pilots are really nice" that just anyone can hop on a Spirit Airlines plane with a concealed hand gun are you? Without further clarification, I agree with Ed and think that your situation does not really represent concealed carry, as you apparently are not just anyone.springerdave.

    Oh, I ment to add the part about previously always flying spirit because I never had a problem with checking my firearms into my luggage. Also they were usually the cheapest.

    OK, but there is a BIG difference between concealed carry and "checking" your arms. Your post may have led someone to believe that Spirit was OK with concealed carry.springerdave.
