Thanks for going to work on this question.
I've had several people ask me about this, or similar outings and would like to eventually have a definitive answer for them.

The thing is, I didn't know what to expect going in, and what to do at the security check. My wife and self both went to the fair yesterday, and the security at gate 2 didn't have the wands, but she poked a stick around in my wife's backpack. I was next, and had my Florida CWL out and handed it to her. She didn't know what it was, and sent me over to a Hillsborough County Police Officer standing near by. I handed him my license, and he asked me if I had a weapon, and I told him yes that I had a pistol.
He said that he had to call it in? Finally after a few minutes, he said your good to go, and I asked him why he did that. He said that he wanted to check that I hadn't been arrested after the license had been issued. I thanked him and went into the fair.
My question is, did I do the right thing? Not ever experiencing this before. I know when going to gun shows you have to go thru the gun check where they zip tie it unloaded, but here I can carry concealed.
I just wish that someone else had visited the fair and posted their experience here before we went.
