    Is open carry permitted in your State?

    I live in NM and open carry is allowed with out a permit as long as you are over the age of 18 and not a felon. Is it legal in your state?

    Legal in KY if you're over 18 and permitted to possess (not a felon, etc). Can't say I've seen anyone doing it in Lexington, though.

    Legal in NC.

    I've never seen anyone, but there is an active Open Carry group that meets on a regular basis in and around Raleigh.

    In Iowa you may open carry in un-incorporated areas without a permit to carry. In order to open carry in a vehicle or in incorporated limits you must have a permit to carry weapons.

    Georgia - Yes, but you must have a GWL (Georgia Weapons Carry License)

    All permits in NY are for concealed carry only.

    In Wisconsin you may open carry, however LEO's can and do ticket people for disturbing the peace and other such ridiculous and petty charges.

    Hopefully this will be changing very soon!

    Although I choose to CC, OC is legal in IN if one possesses a valid LTCH, which, contrary to a common misconception held by too many LEOs, as well as private citizens, is not a CCW requiring CC.

    However, since I frequently walk, or bicycle past two different elementary schools, I know I would be surrounded by LEOs with their pistols aimed at me if I decided to OC in Terre Haute, where this practice is discouraged by LE rather it's legal, or not.

    Missouri- yes, open carry without permit except in municipalities that have ordinance against it. Makes it more difficult since you have to be aware of each and every city ordinance.
    concealed needs a permit unless you are in your vehicle or on your own property, then you can carry concealed without a permit.

    That highlights why I consider open carry important, although I think concealed carry improves your tactical advantage. I hate seeing rights taken away by overbearing law enforcement.

    TN-ok with permit, but maintaining the element of surprise just seems like the best choice.

    Legal in WV. I've spoken with several LEO's concerning this. All have told me if they get a call on you that they will respond with guns drawn. I can't disagree with them on that matter. I carry concealed because I don't need the grief of having to face a cop intent on disarming me. In WV and a few other states it is a felony to come in contact with law enforcement while you are carrying concealed and NOT immediately advise them you have your ccw on you. We do routinely open carry on the farm. Just too many undesirables that can't read signs and don't respect other peoples property.

    CA: Ref: CaliforniaOpenCarry.org - FAQ

    Yes. However, there are many restrictions, but generally as long as your firearm is not concealed, and not loaded, and you are not in a prohibited area ("school zone", post office, government building), then it is legal. Read the California Open Carry Flyer ( http://www.californiaopencarry.org/C...aOpenCarry.pdf ) for complete details, relevant codes, and case law.

    Although I'm thinking I'm not going to strap my 45 on and take a ride down the beach on my motorcycle. People would freak.

    Then there's the paradox of where to lock the ammo.

    No open carry in TX, which amazes me. Our governor has toying with the idea.
