    Yes, but not in your car. And in a lot of areas you will have a LEO have a "talk" with you.

    The Ohio law info on the first page of this thread needs some major updating now that restaurant cazrry is legal and the silly car carry rules have gone away.

    The Ohio page needs serious updating and does not reflect bills that have passed in several years.

    For instance:

    You may renew your license 90 days prior to expiration and 30 days after expiration. You have a grace period of thirty days after the license expires during which your license remains valid. If your initial required competency training is over six (6) years old then you must take another one and pass it.
    "30 days after expiration" is incorrect. An expired license can be renewed indefinitely. There is no longer a time limit in the law.

    If your initial required competency training is over six (6) years old then you must take another one and pass it.
    Training certificates are good for three years to get your first license. Once you have your first license they are no longer needed. For your first renewal, your license is all that is needed and is your proof of prior training.

    As for second (and subsequent) renewals, no one has done that yet. All the law says is that proof of "range competency" will be required. The law does not define "range competency" so each trainer is free to come up with his/her own definition.

    f you are planning on carrying a concealed handgun while driving:Have your concealed carry license and another piece of valid government identifcation in your possession.

    Make sure the handgun is:
    • In a holster secured on your person, or
    • In a closed case, bag, box, or other container that is in
    plain sight and has a closing mechanism such as a zipper, snap or buckle, or
    • Securely encased by being stored in a closed, glove compartment or vehicle console, or
    • Locked in a case.
    All these required methods of car carry were removed from the law as of 9/30/11. A concealed carry licensee can carry a loaded handgun in any way he/she desires.

    Ohio is a Castle Doctrine state and has a stand-your-ground law.
    Ohio does not have a stand-your-ground law. It does have a Castle Doctrine which only applies to your home and your vehicle. Outside of those two places you still have a duty to retreat.

    Finally, as of 9/30/11, concealed carry licensees can legally carry in class D establishments that are serving alcohol for consumption. However, to stay legal they may not consume any alcohol nor be under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.

    On March 27, 2013, House Bill 495 took effect with the following changes to the law:

    1. No range competency certificate is required for the second or subsequent renewals of an Ohio Concealed Handgun License.

    2. The legal definition of "unloaded" for motor vehicle transportation of firearms was changed such that loaded magazines or speedloaders no longer make a gun "loaded" even though they were not in the gun. As long as the new vehicle transportation laws are properly followed, loaded magazines and speedloaders are legal in a motor vehicle. Note that those possessing a Concealed Handgun License have more options for transporting magazines and speedloaders legally than those without a CHL.

    Ohio gun owners should review this section of Ohio law for further info:

    Lawriter - ORC - 2923.16 Improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle.

    Hi. About a year ago our OH law for carry inside a car was changed to allow a CHL holder to have their loaded gun ANYWHERE IN THE VEHICLE. Your page for Ohio shows it only allowed on the person in a holder, in a box, or glovebox.

    We can have it sitting open on the passenger seat if we wish; maybe not a good idea if fast braking required or pasenger window down, but non the less, e restrictions on location were totally removed.

    Please update Ohio - about 5 different places need it.

    Thank you
