    Cool Concealed carry in Indiana

    Only if you have any convictions. Other wise Indiana is a shall issue state.

  4. re: Concealed Carry in Indiana

    As far as I know, catnipp is correct. Indiana seems to have the same laws as the state of Washington. You get your Concealed Pistol License in Washington by applying to the local police chief, or if you live in an unincorporated area, the sheriff. If you pass the background check, you receive your license. Being a Shall Issue state, the ISP I do not believe can stop your being issued your permit. Let us know how it turns out.

    A couple of things. First, Indiana doesn't have a concealed carry permit, just a permit to carry. You can strap it to your head for all our laws would care. Second, the sherriffs office just processes the paper work. Your application is approved by the state police after a state and federal background check.

  6. I'm a police officer in Indiana and also have a lifetime permit. Indiana is one of the easiest states to get a permit. I'd definitely suggest the lifetime one it is worth the extra money. While it may not be illegal to carry openly with a permit in Indiana, it could lead to a revocation if ISP gets complaints from the public about being scared. Keep the weapon hidden and no one will ever know or have a problem.

    If you do get your license revoked for simple, legal open carry, you have grounds for a lawsuit. So, carry however is most comfortable for you. For the most part, people will surprise you with the fact that they generally don't notice (or at least don't say anything).

    Though I believe that your friendly law officers do technically have the right to ask you for your permit. Most are friendly about it, some may hassle (mild scold/lecture) you about it, but otherwise send you on your way.

    Now, if you're doing something dumb (handling, brandishing, threatening, etc) then you deserve it.

    Indiana Carry

    Indiana issues a License, not a Permit. (There's a gun dealer in South Bend who is adamant about the difference.)

    When licensed, you are covered for your choice of Open Carry or Concealed Carry. Both are "right", but I usually choose Concealed since I choose NOT to draw attention to my weapon.

    By all means, get the Lifetime License. Last I heard, Indiana was still the only state to offer this. However, "no license or permit needed" would still be more consistent with that pesky old Constitution.

    Hello, Indiana has a conceiled permit license, because I have a life time one that never needs to be renewed.
    thanks for the oppertunity to be part of this group.

    If you look at the example Indiana License/Permit accessible from the "Resources" tab on this site, it does indeed say "License". However, if you look at the "Concealed Carry PERMIT Reciprocity Maps" section you'll see that the Indiana License/Permit is recognized by many states (including my state of Arizona) as a CCW PERMIT. I think that the whole license/permit issue is a strictly semantic issue sort of like "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. There is really no issue if you accept the fact that Indiana is NOT an "open carry state" period!

    This is wrong. I hope it doesn't get the op arrested. Indiana has two separate carry permits. They have one for "hunting and target" and one for "pesonnal protection". You have to carry the weapon exposed on the "hunting and target"!!! The personnal protection or conceated carry is unlimited and you can carry it concealed or exposed. Also you can't carry a loaded weapon in the vehicle with the "hunting and target".
