    Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas?

    I will be traveling to Dallas, TX this weekend.
    I have the ins and outs in TX covered. I can't seem to find anything specific on regs for carrying in my vehicle in KY, TN or AR.
    Ohio's vehicle laws are horribly convoluted and open to debate so I don't want to inadvertently break the law elsewhere.
    I know I am covered under reciprocity in all states in question and I will not be stopping for anything other than fuel and/or fast food 'till I reach TX.
    Any input from residents on things/places to avoid.
    Do I need to inform LEO in case of traffic stop?...

    Thanks for any help.

    Arkansas State Police | Regulatory Services

    If you happen to get stopped here in Arkansas, show your Texas permit with your driver's license like they were stuck together. Arkansas is a concealed state, and that means concealed. In the link, you'll find the current Arkansas CCW laws to abide by while you're here. Good luck, and have a safe trip.

    I don't know if you have seen this site or not, but it's a good place to know about all of the rules and regs in all states.

    TN is OC or CC. Must inform LEO if stopped. Do not go where alcohol is served on site. You can carry in any C-store/gas station that sells beer as long as they aren't posted.

    Pretty laid back state.
    It is not the Bill of Privileges. It is not the Bill of Permits. It is the Bill of Rights.

    People should not be afraid of the government; the government should be afraid of the people.

    Ohio and Texas do not have reciprocity though I believe you can carry in your vehicle.

    As far as carrying in the car as you drive in Tennessee, open or concealed is good either way.
    Sorry for disagreeing Citizen but Tennessee is not a required to inform state.

    I will second the advice to look at Handgunlaw.us

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes, I checked handgunlaw.us, a great source of info BTW.
    I went to each state's regs through HGL's links and still could not find specifics on vehicle carry. I figured that this meant there were no strictures, ie. carry concealed if licensed or open if an open carry state. But Ohio has such a convoluted mess for vehicle restrictions that I wanted to make sure.

    chenemf,
    My PA non res.(PA and OH don't have reciprocity either) card covers me in TX. And, like you said, TX law allows for concealed carry in your vehicle and to and from your place of residence (even temporary residence) with out a license.

    Now it's just a matter of 19-21 hours in the driver's seat!

    Compared to your state..cheap. I know of a 3500 sq ft victorian with a 20x40 workshop on 7 acres for 450 grand. In CT thats a million dollars..
    Most housing in Northern Ky is very afforadable, avg 1600sqft 3 bed 2 bath is going any where from 100-150.

    Its a plus that there are 2 indoor ranges, a public range and 4-5 gun shops all within 30 miles.
    Current collection: Too many according to the wife...

    Very good. My sister just moved back here from your state. She is amazed at the difference in realestate prices. Shorter winters than you have, but the summers are brutal. Some of the best carry laws. Legal to open carry, but never see it.

    Real estate prices are creeping up here. Too many Hoosiers retireing and moving to the lake.

    Aww, what the hell,c'mon down we got room for one more. Leave your "always in a hurry" ways behind or you will be disappointed a lot. Dont be surprised if your weekly newspaper has news that is 2 weeks old. Of course I live so far back in the sticks that we dont get the Grand Ole Opra until Wednsday afternoon.
