    I did, and man was it a pain in the butt, especially with my Carhartt coat on. Thankfully I drive a truck that is higher than most anything aside from box trucks or semi's, so I wasn't too worried about anyone seeing in.

    Question

    Alright, the suspense is killing me.. Could you please inform us non-Ohioers what the heck a "buckeye tuck" is?

    A "Buckeye tuck" is to accomodate the stupid old plain sight provision of the CHL laws. Today a new law went into effect that no longer made it neccessary to have the weapon in "plian sight" while in a holster in a motor vehicle.

    To do the "Buckeye tuck", one sits in the seat of a vehicle, and takes whatever cover garment they are wearing, and tucks it behind their holster/firearm, so it is in plain sight.

    Hey, it got up to 75 here yesterday, and like 65 today although it was overcast, rainy and crappy, it is supposed to go back under 50 in a few days though.

    No offense, I went to Ohio once, my wife was born in Wooster.
    Everyone was really nice to me, but man it was cold.

    No offense taken, come up the first week of high school football practice two-a-days, it always seems to be the hottest every year, about 95-100 with 90-95% humidity.

    Wooster is a great town, I grew up a stone throw north of there.

    The first time I went into Ohio I had misread the Buckeye Tuck law and just placed my handgun on the dash. I'm really lucky I never ran into a police officer that day. I'm probably 50% on times I actually remembered to do it after that.

    Not hijacking the thread but the wife is from Strongsville. We go up all the time. I didn't do the tuck because my GA permit is not recognized. My pistol had to ride unloaded in a case in the back all 229 miles from the KY border.

    Guess I'll try not to hijack either :-). My dad grew up just east of Wooster in Dalton. Still have family in the Dalton/Orrville area.

    ==>Did anybody really do the "buckeye tuck"?

    Nope. None for me ... thanks!

    But then again, I only just got approved about 3 weeks back and I haven't figured it all out yet (i.e. which holsters are more comfy, which weapon(s) (of many in the gunsafe) to carry daily, etc.)

    I just figured I'd wait the three weeks so I wouldn't accidentally get a weapons violation for carrying in the car improperly.

    Now ... it doesn't matter.
