    In Minnesota when a LEO does a Liscense check on a motor vehicle part of the info that comes up is if the owner is, or isnot a permit holder.. Cops LOVE to see your hands! (from 20yr LEO vet) They will ask if your carrying. Don't lie. When going for your permit tell them what you are doing before you do it, SLOWLY. This appliys to anyone driving your car also..(ex. your son)

    The main problem here in Ohio is that the Ohio Supreme Court has not defined the term "plain sight". So it is open to the interpratation of the LEO. The only way to be 100% legal is to have your gun LOCKED in the glovebox or in a case that is locked and in plain sight, which is what the state troopers want. The State Highway Patroll would not support the bill unless the plain sight part was written in.

    OH's stupid 'plain sight' law is one of the reasons that I don't carry as often as I'd like.

    When I'm travelling CC, I clip my holster to the seat belt (torso part) or carry in a shoulder holster. The seat belt 'deal' might not be legal , but it was recommended/suggested by the CC instructor I had and he said it works well for him and he's connected with local LE.
    It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

    That can particularly be a problem in Oregon, Ohio :)

    Oh good lord! Your CCW instructor give you wrong and misquided information that could cause you your CHL. Shoulder holster...,cool! Clipping to seatbelt...,unlawful! The law states that it must be holstered on your person. Seatbelt is not on your person. He needs to go back and read the AG's guide!!

    If you're transporting in your trunk, you need to step back out of the CCW mode though, and have your ammo stored separately from your firearm inside the car.

    When CCW-ing, you have to either carry it holstered on your person, in plain sight of course, or locked in your glovebox, or locked in a locked container, in plain sight. That's the only 3 options we have at this time! So again, if you're putting your loaded firearm in your trunk, that's in violation of Ohio's law.

    I personally believe the very best place for that handgun is holstered on your body, ready at hand.

    Thanks for the timely info. My wife and I will be in Ohio later this month and we need to know this.
    For those who understand, no explanation is necessary.
