    Ever state is different some like FL and TX yes you can be in deep crude if your guns shows and you are not hunting etc.. But they are or have changed the laws now to say that accidentally expose is OK ..Ditto other no OC or limted OC state like CA ..

    And also every state means diffetn things usally if some part of the gun is showing then you are OC usally the but or the such..

    In az it does not matter I have bothed OC and CC and a line inbetwen thouse two where yes the gun could be seen if you look so by the law OC but it was concled

    It depends on the laws you are going to be subject to at the time. Since every state or municipality can have different laws, there's no blanket answer to your question.

    Generally open carry is a firearm that's openly carried. Concealed carry is a firearm that is carried concealed. The line, so to speak, is the ability to see the firearm without having to move or remove clothing for it to be visible.

    You would have to check the laws in your state. In Georgia if you are seen carrying concealed all the person of the place your are carrying in has to do is ask you to leave. If you don't and the police is call it is trespassing which is a misdemeanor.

    Bear in mind, I am not a lawyer.

    But, open carry, even without a license, is legal in Ohio. There are some caveats to that, so do your homework.

    In some parts of the state you may get more attention than others.

    In your state OC is legal so I wouldn't sweat it.


    I believe that in Ohio that gunbuster signs have the force of law, so this would be something to check if you are OC'ing before you head into any establishment other than your own....

    Always check pertinent laws yourself, don't rely on the information of others.

    I used to worry about this when I first started carrying, now it doesn't even cross my mind. As long as you are carrying where legal, in OH, you can open carry. So, accidental exposure is no big deal.

    It depends on your state's law--Ohio. And no one got in "deep crude" in FL because of accidental exposure, but the risk of an anxious-to-move-up DA twisting the question of incidental exposure of CC into an OC violation was recognized and the law was changed to remove that problem.

    Now, if you beat the Mega-Millions odds and were issued a NY permit and a gust of wind blew your jacket up momentarily, that would probably call for public execution on the spot if they could find one of their blue bloods who could hit something.

    Static cling hit me once. Busy crowded restuarant. Took jacket off and cover shirt lifted up. No one noticed....

    Yeah they say you should be fine in your state since you have Open carry but if you are in a certain city or county and the wrong person sees it. Could be a problem. I would not lose too much time thinking about it. Its not like you are brandishing.

    it all depends on what state the accidental exposure happens in. as for what is OC and what is concealed, concealed means just that and carry a weapon that is even partially exposed could be considered to be OC.

    Negative. Charges are one thing (and a idiot DA could still do the same today despite the revised law), conviction is another. Even Jon Gutmacher says he knows of no such cases and that his opinion (which carries a lot of weight) is that it would not pass the due procedure test. Mere exposure is not "open carry." Do not let unsubstantiated fear become your reality.

    If you are in a posted establishment when your gun is accidentally exposed, yes, you could definitely be in trouble.
