Florida State NFA Rules and Allowable NFA Items

Florida is a state that is quite friendly toward NFA owners. NFA items are not restricted, given that they are properly registered with the federal government. In Florida you may not hunt with fully automatic firearms. Florida recently made it legal to hunt with a suppressed weapon.

Possession of NFA Items:

790.221 Possession of short-barreled rifle, short-barreled shotgun, or machine gun; penalty –

  • It is unlawful for any person to own or to have in his or her care, custody, possession, or control any short-barreled rifle, short-barreled shotgun, or machine gun which is, or may readily be made, operable; but this section shall not apply to antique firearms.
  • A person who violates this section commits a felony of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
  • Firearms in violation hereof which are lawfully owned and possessed under provisions of federal law are excepted.
