    Open Carry / Printing laws in Indiana?

    I'm in the process of getting my CCW. I need to know the law regarding open carry here in Indiana. If concealed carry only, then what if my weapon peeks out from under my shirt? Could I get into trouble for that? Thanks for your help.

    Indiana is "License To Carry Handgun". Does not distinguish between Open or Concealed. I carry IWB, sometimes with a jacket or shirt over it, sometimes without. Never been hassled in either case. I live in Southern IN, YMMV, especially in Indy or Ft Wayne.

    Thanks for the info. That's a good little pamphlet.

  7. I OC everytime I go to Indiana. It's well known that the cops will try to tell you it's illegal, but it is most certainly NOT illegal.

    No one has ever bothered me.

    I think the reason that some LEO's think it's illegal is because the Indiana Code is silent on the issue. That is, the "law" doesn't say anything about the mode of carry. It's legal, because it's not illegal. The laws of most states do not always say what is legal.

    That's the case here in MA. No law indicates its legal to do it, yet no law indicates its illegal to do it...

    So if the police decide to detain you, they can until they are told not to by the courts...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..
