You are right. That is FL law. As you pointed out, every jurisdiction can be a little different, and it is imperative that you know the laws of your own jurisdiction.
However, not every concealed weapons class instructors know what they are talking about when it comes to the law, although they all think they do. Your best bet is to look up the statute in your state and read it for yourself.
