I was just wondering if anyone has experience with Port Canaveral (Cape Canaveral)? I heard from one gentleman that they search your vehicle upon entering the area because it is located on a military base? I was planning on leaving my firearm locked in the trunk of the car while we are parked in Carnival's lot. Does anyone have an idea if I would have my car searched and firearm confiscated? Also, anyone know if I could get one of the local gun shops like B & H Gun Rack or Gun Site to hold my firearm for a week? Thanks!
Second, according to their map http://www.portcanaveral.com/images/...lopmentmap.pdfit appears that none of the cruise line parking is in the secure area of the port, so you should be able to keep the gun in the car in accordance with 790.25(5)
I would suggest a phone call to PortPublic Safetyto verify. http://www.portcanaveral.com/general/contacts.php
$15/day parking? WOW!
