On my way to Texas to a wedding from Mo. I see that the law has been changed for open carry but doesn't take effect till Nov. How about carry in your vehicle both open or concealed?
If you have a MO concealed carry permit, then you can continue to carry concealed in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma does not have an open carry in car provision. In your car, your firearm would have to be unloaded, unless of course you have a MO concealed carry permit.
Oklahoma is also a shall notify state, so you are required to notify an officer if you are carrying a concealed weapon upon first contact of any arrest, detainment or routine traffic stop. Best to notify if you have any interaction as there have been reports of some officers not appreciating not being notified even though it wasn't a routine traffic stop, detainment, or arrest.
Here is the law as it relates to transportation of a firearm.

Me and my wife just took our MO. concealed carry course but haven't had the money to get the licences together. This road trip sprung up last minute and we don't go anywhere without our pistols. Thanks for the info cleared up what I needed to know.
