    hunting and fishing

    If I understand the law correctly one can conceel carry if you have a valad hunting and or fishing licence and are going to engaging in or returning from said hunting and or fishing activities. Has anyone used this defense for having your open carry pistol still holstered in your vehicle? And wouldn't this also allow for loaded carry in restricted cities such as Newport?

    I am not a lawer however 166.250 and 166.260 seem to say that you can carry concealed in these cases. Full law link here:

    Hope this helps. But get a CHL just to be safe!
