    Any state that prohibits unlicensed vehicle carry is not an "open carry" state by my definition.

    I am hopeful that a good SCOTUS decision in McDonald v. Chicago will eventually put an end to this nonsense.

    It sounds like open carry on a bicycle or motorcycle would be legal, but not in a car.

    Purely a state and or local matter.

    Ohio's an open carry state. If you have an Ohio CHL you can carry a gun in a holster on your body (including a pocket holster), open or concealed.

    In fact, until recently open carry in vehicles was REQUIRED when carrying on body. That's been done away with.

    If you have a CCW permit and you're in FL, the gun can be on you, next to you, but it must not be visible from the outside. If it's not on my person, or I have a second firearm with me, it's either between the seat and console, on the seat, or under my leg. On the seat it may just have a hat over it...that's legal.

    Not in some places. In WA you became "concealed" when you "transport the firearm via vehicle" blah blah blah unless it was locked in the trunk or whatever, so it was inclusive to motorcycles...not sure about bicycles.

    As long as it's not violating any law, I totally agree!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    And is it legal?
    Here's a good place to check the laws regarding CC in various states.

    It is legal to do that here, but most of the time it's so darn cold it would be suicide to take off your coat. However a car in good working condition should have a decent heating system. I guarantee you though as soon as you park the car and open your door, you'll be scrambling to put that coat back on LOL!

    I have stated this in other posts i allways wear a black leather vest. Summer and Winter. In Winter i just put the vest on then the heavier coat on over that. That way I didn't have to worry about it.

    Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    I love window tint....don't you? I can open carry in my vehicle and still be concealed. I'm in my own property while I'm driving my vehicle. Seems simple enough to me.
