    Gun Attachments Open Carry Question

    I recently bought a folding tactical pistol grip stock and a TacStar side saddle for my Mossberg 500. I was wondering if these attachments would affect my ability to open carry it? I live in Ohio and have not read anything saying I can't, but these laws can be very confusing at times. The side saddle holds 6 shells and the tactical stock holds an additional 5.

    Other than in the field, I'm wondering why you'd OC a shotgun. It's going to draw anti-gun flaming.

    Check you local laws, if it's legal and you feel the need to do so then go ahead and do it. On the other hand though, if you decide to, you may not like the attention it brings to you. Some people (public) may be OK with a handgun being OC'ed because it's small and doesn't look as threatening as a tacticool shotgun. We the LBC have the right to carry where allowed by law so therefor I can not judge anyone on what they carry, how they carry, or where they carry. Just be safe.

    I fully agree. On your way to the duck blind is one thing ...

    Welcome from Virginia. You might want to run the question by an Ohio lawyer who is versed in gun laws in your state. You will, probably need him soon anyway.

    Every state law I have read on open or concealed carry makes it plain that the laws only apply to hand guns. Louisiana has never had any laws against open carry and if you were seen with a shotgun, ot would be just seconds and you would be on the ground with cuffs and the shotgun would be the property of the State.
    A 9mm might expand but a .45acp never shrinks.

    WA allows open carry of long guns. That doesn't mean it's a good idea though. Some people carry unloaded ARs to political gatherings to show support for the 2A.

    I believe that long gun OC is legal in OH. Cosmetic changes to guns make no legal difference when OCing (kinves/bayonettes aren't cosmetic, and may not be legal in certain justidictions).

    There is a difference between OC as in a holster or such and openly carrying a long gun in a vehicle or walking down the street. LA allows open carry in a vehicle for long guns. Just do not grab your shotgun and walk down the street. Several states require long guns to be secured during transport. Those that do not could be considered open carry but that does not apply to long guns being carried by individuals.

    I will bet that if you walked into an I-Hop in WA with a shotgun in hand, the police would be called.

    Just because something is technically legal doesn't assure that it's, uhhh... prudent. For instance, I don't think there's any laws against stripping naked & slapping a hornet's nest with a canoe paddle. So I guess it's - help yourself & good luck.
