    Travel to Indiana

    Hey all,
    I am traveling to Indiana for a friends wedding next weekend and I am looking for information on CC there. I will be traveling thru Kentucky and their laws are basically the same as Tennessee's.

    Having never entered the state: Is Indianapolis a gun friendly city? Any local guys with advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    I travel to Indy for work and have found them to be CCW friendly. At least compared to their neighbors on the west, and the east for that matter. I don't remember details of their laws. Before I travel to another state I always brush up on handgunlaw.us Travel to so many states so often I can't keep them straight.

    Hi! I'm new to the board but this is as good a place as any to jump in since I live in Southeastern Indiana. Indiana honors your Tennessee resident permit. Ours is a "License to Carry a Hangun". I've never carried open but it's legal if you are so inclined. Places off limits in Indiana are: on school property (unless dropping off and do not exit your vehicle), on a school bus, on an airplane or in the controlled section of an airport, on a riverboat gambling cruise, or at the Indiana State Fair.
    You are not required to tell LEOs that you are carrying but must show your permit upon request by LEO. Personally, I have always informed them upfront and have never been treated with anything but respect. Never got a ticket either!

    Enjoy Indiana!

    +1... Indiana is a good state! Heck, they are the only ones who offer a Lifetime Permit!

    Kyle,

    I don't know what route you're coming up, but I live in Evansville IN.. or just outside it.

    If you want to make a side trip to the range on the ride, let me know.

    Anyway, have a good trip. I like carrying in IN, much much more gun friendly then NJ was.

    BTW... for IN law, a school is defined as anywhere a school function is happening, I believe.

    So I don't know that I want to hijack this thing and turn it into something else. But it would be nice if someone could PM me and tell me how you are supposed to know if there's a field trip going on at the local zoo for instance?? Think I'm going to have to take away a point for IN now.

    I OC'ed on my motorcycle all the way from Cinci to lil Nashville and never got a second look, that i was aware of, talked to cops on the way and everything..A very gun friendly state opinion I came away with.

    that's a good question, and I honestly have no idea... and it's some good food for thought...

    The zoo's that i've been to clearly state on a sign right before the entrance gate, "Absolutely No Firearms Allowed Beyond This Point"

    Anyway, my grandmother packs a .357 magnum in her purse, on her daily routine through downtown Indy. She works in the capitol building, so the firearm stays locked in her car while she's at work. She's never had a problem, to my knowlege.

    I've both OC, and CC, in southern IN, without a single incident.
