    Ohio Car Carry Holster

    Anybody from Ohio come up with a perfect holster/method for carrying a gun in the car, I would be interested in what you have chosen. Something quick and simple but still comply with the law.

    For those who are saying, "HUH?" in Ohio we have to holster our weapons In Plain Sight while in the car, them magically conceal them the second we get out of the vehicle

    I have 2 of these for general carry. They work great for plain sight here in Ohio.

    Watch the video to see how it works.
    Great craftsmanship, good people.

    P.S. I live 7 miles from Nerk

    Actually a general cross draw holster would be perfect.....or I guess I shouldnt say that.....your typical 3 slot pancake, would work though.
    The design allows CD for driving and then strong side carry for when you arent and need to conceal the gun.
    Shoot well and god bless

    No one has really defined plain site enough in Ohio. You guys have got to get on your state represenatives tails and get legislation passed to ammend this silly stuff.

    If you are set up for cross draw what if the officer approaches from the passenger side. He can't clearly see your holstered pistol. You might find yourself being one of the test cases for the Ohio Supreme Court.........Just my .02.

    BTW-I travel to Ohio frequently so I am very interested in this topic. I feel that the only way to really carry without legal entanglements is to keep it locked in the glovebox and then reholster once you leave the car. Once again get on your local reps butts and get this amended so we can carry anyway we want!

    I really like that arm extension, however.

    Car Carry

    Doc,

    Most Leos seem pretty good about plain sight. If you make a reasonable effort to keep it visible you shouldn't have any problems.
    I've carried in Ohio for over 2 years and have survived.

    I usually carry a 3" 1911 in a C-T.A.C. IWB and all the LEOs I have had contact with felt that was OK.

    Take it out of the glove compartment and join our little experiment. LOL

    "plain sight" has been defined for reasonable cause searches. I've left OH, but while there, I figured if I made a good attempt and at least met the standard that would be applied in a court for a car search. I'd be OK. In practice, each officer I spoke with in and around Bowling Green was cool with my IWB and shirt tucked behind.

    I wear an IWB holster at about 3:00, and "buckeye tuck" my shirt behind the holster when I'm in the car. Got a speeding ticket like that, notified the officer, no problem. I also asked my instructors in my last training class--One was the chief of Police in Mechanicsburg, the other was from a state LEO agency (Don't remember which one, not Highway Patrol) and both said it should be OK.

    Well it was the Highway Patrol that raised the biggest stink about it. "Should be ok" and "Is ok" is a huge difference in my mind. Plain sight needs to be overturned!

    I carry my Glock 27 in a DeSantis leather OWB. When I put it on my belt I leave the belt out of the 3 o'clock belt loop. When I get in the car I slide the holster up to the 2:30 position, with the cover garment behind the handle. Just before I exit the car I slide it back to the 4:30 spot and cover. I'm still wondering on how to make IWB work. I did get pulled over once for a traffic violation and the Cleve. police officer never even looked at the gun. (didn't even give me a ticket.)

    Sevesteen, how far from Mechburg do you live? Most people don't even know where this place is at. lol

    And to actually add something to the topic at hand, I carry about 3:30 or 4:00 and I just tuck my shirt in behind my IWB holster when I am driving. I have not been pulled over yet so can't really say if it would cause any problems. Hopefully this fall we can get rid of this stupid rule.

    I thought that it was illegal to carry within the city limits of Cleveland?

    We've got limited preemption--Cities can add hoops, ban certain guns or magazines, but cannot completely ban CCW. Full preemption is making it's way through the legislature, probably pass immediatly after governor Taft is gone.

    I'm about 40 miles away. I knew it was around here somewhere, but didn't have a clue where until I saw the post on the Ohioans for Concealed Carry forum.

    I think worst case it will be gone as soon as Taft is, although I'd like it gone before I have to wear a coat. Both likely candidates for governor are pro-CCW and have said they will pass the fixit bill.
