    Traveling through Mississippi.....

    My family and I will be driving from Memphis Tennessee to Mobile Alabama on Friday. About 95% of this trip will be through Mississippi.

    My wife and I both carry and have valid TN permits which are honored in Mississippi and Alabama so no problem there. But, I was wondering, is ther anything in particular I should be aware of while traveling through Mississippi armed? Open carry is a no-no if I am correct.

    I will check Handgunlaw.us but I also wanted to hear from the members here.

    Last I checked Open Carry was legal. You can keep your gun conceled in your car without a permit.

    Depending on the area you are in it is probably like it is here in Louisiana where open carry is legal but almost no one knows it is, including the police.

    edit, i just looked on opencarry.org. Open Carry is legal but some areas may not be.

    Mississippi Carry

    The biggest difference I find between TN, MS, and AL is the fact that TN is the only one that you must disarm in a restraunt that serves alcohol. I live in NE corner of MS and travel to all three places regularly. Other than restraunt carry, I've not found any big differences. In MS and AL you can carry in say Applebee's or Ruby Tuesday, but not in a bar. Have fun, and be safe.

    Sights? What are those?

    PT-111 watch your speed. I used to travel from St. Louis to Biloxi every year down 55. I know you will be taveling a different highway but I bet you its the same. The LEO's liked to use the big pine trees that divide the highway for cover to give tickets to speeders.

    PT-111, Comming from a LE. family, all of which are here in MS. The only thing i may suggest is keep the speed down and let'em know its in the car in the event you get stopped. That drive from TN. to mobile is a long one, but its not bad, fairly nice if i do say so myself. Have a good trip and stay safe.

    watch the speed from mile marker 130 to about 104. HP and some local guys like to catch the speeders in that area. Also, if you have a tail light or head light out...fix it...you will get stopped ALOT for those.

    For some reason the web site with MS Code is down.

    Not sure about open carry. I think it's a no-no. Regardless, LE in MS is not real fond of it. May be more trouble than it's worth.

    Even without a CCW permit, ok to carry concealed or not in vehicle.

    Watch your speed. We love radar in this state. Sheriffs (except in Lowndes County/Columbus HWY 45) can't use radar.
