    Carrying in the car?

    When you have a coat on to cover the gun and you get into the car to go somewhere,can you take off the coat and expose the gun on you're hip while driving?
    And is it legal?

    If open carry is legal then yes you can. I usually open carry in my car because the gun sticks to my skin and annoys me.

    Who's going to see it anyway ? Just cover it up when you get out.

    I found my answer but this might help others.

    This is for Kansas.

    Excellent. Personally, I'm concealed 100% of the time, even though MN is good either way. Yes, it takes a bit more effort, trial, and (we hope not) error.

    Good to know; I sometimes go through Kansas. If you happen to come to Colorado, anyone legally owning a handgun may have it loaded in the vehicle while here, "and it shall not be considered concealed".

    In Texas, it must be concealed all the time. No open carry law...

    In Michigan you can open carry, but when you step in a car you are now "concealed" and must have a CPL.

    In Michigan, you must have a CPL. Open carry is legal, but as soon as you step foot into a vehicle, it's considered concealed.

    If you don't have a CPL, you must put it in the trunk and separate it from the ammo. Many diehard OCers get a CPL only so they don't have to go through this hassle.

    I like MO for the no permit reasons for OCing.

    But the age of 23 to CC kind of sucks....
