    I am sure you all are smart enough to do your research, but be aware that just because a state listed on that map is OC doesn't mean you shouldn't check the laws around OC. In Alabama (my state) you can OC with no permit, but the second you enter a vehicle with a loaded firearm you must have a CC license whether the pistol is openly carried in said vehicle or not. Stupid, maybe, but law nonetheless. I am sure other states probably have little nuances like that as well.

    I dont think I was complaining at all, just pointing out as others have that they shouldnt rely solely on info from the link posted.

    Interesting link, but some of the info needs to be updated. For one thing, Ohio now allows carrying concealed in establishments that serve alcohol as long as the establishment has not posted and as long as the individual does not drink alcohol nor has had any alcohol to drink.

    Minnesotan's need to quit bad-mouthing our own state. I've been carrying openly here for a few years now, and I've had NO problems. None at all. And I carry in all the best, and all the worst places. Every where from the local library (in a building with a court house *GASP*) to 1st Ave and 6th St at 2am. The only problem you would have is yourself.

    Also, http://www.handgunlaw.us is another great place for this sort of information. Gary works hard to keep the information up to date.

    Cheers.

    Careful about relying on these maps. I noticed several errors!

    WY Constitutional Carry is misleading. Constitutional Carry is for WY residents ONLY.

    Im from PA and i can tell you that it is legal here to open carry. But usually only hunters in the woods carry like that because guaranteed you would get harrassed by the cops if you walked around town with a sidearm on your hip! I think gun laws are bull crap we the people should be able to carry any gun in anyway at any time!!!

    I am more comfortable CCing, but I appreciate WA State's OC option in case Mr Steyr shows when I reach for something on the top shelf at the store.

    In my Minnesota class the instructor told us I wouldn't tell in the metro area if you are pulled over that you have a permit. They may take it because they can! I stay out of the twin cities area as much as possible. Very liveral there and their vote is what puts the state wide elections to the liberal side!!

    Their Iowa law isnt right, their is no open carry in Iowa. Although they did pass a shall issue status last year the sheriff told me when I applied for mine, when it was still may issue, it was not an open carry state. No other state honors their permit either, you can take the test online, without shooting.

    When are people going to learn to not ask about the law from law enforcement officers - and then spreading the answer as if it's the last definitive word on the subject.

    This took about 2 minutes to find and I don't even live in your state (bottom of the first page) and C&Pd below (emphasis added): http://www.dps.state.ia.us/asd/SF2379_FAQ.pdf Note that this source is the Iowa Department of Public Safety, Division of Administrative Services, i.e. the people in IA that administer gun permits in IA.

    "QUESTION: Under the new law, do I have to carry my handgun concealed?
    ANSWER: Iowa law has not changed in this regard. You may carry concealed or you may carry openly; however, most permit holders
    carry concealed to avoid making it obvious that the person is armed, thus avoiding unnecessary attention, concern, or alarm."


    And the bigger issue is this: It's up to each responsible gun owner to know and understand the firearm laws of their state. The "responsible" part of that sentence means you go find out the actual law and not depend on hearsay.

    Here are the actual laws for IA for firearms/weapons: https://www.legis.iowa.gov/DOCS/ACO/...hapter.724.pdf
