Congrats, funny thing is I'm going to traveling soon, and may get to OC soon too.
I know not what this "overkill" means.
Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.
Congrats on that snippet of feeling free :)
email@example.com ). I live in Pittsburg and maybe we can meet up for a cup of coffee or make time to go to the range. If you drove into Pittsburg on 69 Hwy, you drove right past my house.
I'm curious about Lawrence. Did you OC there? It was my understanding that Lawrence was one of several cities that had regulations against OC.
Glad you had a good trip.
I'm glad it went well. I'm a big believer of doing "as the romans do" myself.

I reserve the right to make fun, point and laugh etc.
By the way......I carried the G19 IWB with my shirt tucked in, so it may have been a bit more conservative than just going to an obvious OWB holster...AND.....I had to be able to conceal well again since I had to cross through Missouri and of course back into my home state where OC is not allowed. I planned it all out before hand to the best of my abilities and research done in advance. What we do to assert our rights AND stay on the right side of the law! I could easily adapt to open carry, and as previously proposed......it would be a faster draw, and to tell the truth, about 80% of my training and matches involve drawing from OWB.
listed here. And as you can see from this document from the AG's web site about the changes after the passage of HB2528, even other locations that were off limits in the original bill (churches, schools, police stations, etc.) must now post a gunbuster sign to be able to prosecute for legally carrying concealed.
Hope to have a chance to meet up on one of your future trips.
Lawrence PD "mis-informed" you, coming from the most liberal and anti-gun area of the state, I cannot say that's a surprise. This says a lot about how SOME will "mis-inform" about the laws.
They cited you the city ordinance, but didn't tell you this part. ........
(2) No part of this Section dealing with carrying a concealed revolver,
pistol or firearm shall apply to:
(f) Any person licensed to carry a concealed firearm under
the Kansas Personal and Family Protection Act, and
amendments thereto, at such times and in such places
as the person would be allowed to lawfully carry a
concealed firearm under that act.
Nor, that Kansas Law (H.B. 2528) preempts all local ordinances and makes it legal to carry in churches, bars, etc. UNLESS they have an "approved Atty Gen signage" posted on the door. They only have to post if they do not want you to carry in their business.
http://www.ksag.org/files/shared/HB2...ifications.pdf (Ks Atty Gen - FAQ section on conceal carry).
The requirements for “no concealed carry” signage also changed with the
passage of HB 2528. In order to bring charges of unlawful concealed
carry against a licensee, those properties previously enumerated under
K.S.A. 75-7c10 (schools, bars, churches, school & professional athletic
events, churches, etc.) must now be posted. One exception to this is the
provision regarding carrying in or on areas prohibited by Federal law;
these areas are under no obligation to post their properties.
Well, I'm headed back up to Baldwin City, KS again this weekend driving the same route. Looking forward to OC again. I'll drop you a line cvhoss.
Heck, if you're going to keep coming to visit, you may as well move here. We'd be glad to have you.
I'm not sure Arkansas could do without me. I have given it some thought though, but things change.
Well there goes the "Let's Bail RamRod out of Jail Thread"Glad everything worked out,I'm originally from Salina Ks. I had no Idea OC was allowed
