Thread: Open carry reciprocity with Indiana

  1. Open carry reciprocity with Indiana

    I am not sure if there is anywhere that I can find a listing or how it open carry reciprocity works. I am in Indiana, and I can open carry or concealed carry there. Are there other states that allow open carry if I have an Indiana permit?

    Yes. Look at www.opencarry.org and the maps link. You can open carry in the gold star open carry states and some of the open carry friendly states with no permit required, and you can open carry in a licensed open carry state if that state accepts your Indiana permit.

    Washington is an example of an open carry friendly state that you can open carry in. However, because your Indiana permit is not recognized by Washington, you cannot conceal the gun on your person, or have it loaded inside a vehicle.

  4. I have seen the maps, but don't understand. What is a Gold Star Open Carry State vs. An Open Carry Friendly State vs. Licensed Open Carry State vs. Non Permissive Open Carry State vs. Rural Open Carry State?

    Gold Star - a person without a license can open carry a firearm in that state just exactly like a person with a license can carry concealed. In Vermont, Alaska, Arizona and Wyoming(if you are a Wyoming resident) you can even conceal the gun without a license.

    Open Carry Friendly - a person without a license can open carry a firearm in that state, but there might be restrictions that apply to them that a permit/license holder would not have. Washington, for example...a person without a license cannot carry into a stadium or convention center where the city has prohibited firearms or have a handgun loaded anywhere in a vehicle - whereas a person with a recognized permit can do all those things.

    Licensed Open Carry State - generally, no distinction is made beetween open carry and concealed carry in those states. They are treated exactly the same, including a permit to just carry the gun. None of those state has a separate license for open carry, though. The same license, even if the title of the license/permit has the word "concealed" on it, allows for both.

    Non Permissive Open Carry State - only special people like politicians and police officers can open carry, otherwise they are afraid of the sight of Joe Citizen carrying a gun so you must conceal it, for which a license may be required. Texas and Florida are like that.

    Rural Open Carry - only California, as far as I know. Open carry is still legal, but only in areas of the state not incorporated as a city or town.

  6. Florida is actually open carry friendly under certain circumstances. Basically if you are on your way to or from hunting, fishing, or range practice you are allowed to open carry. So if you're like me you just carry a fishing pole around all the time.

    I thought you didn't need a permit to OC in Utah if it was "2 steps from firing" or something like that?
