@ younger than 21 I wouldn't reccomend a flap holster since it could be construed as concealed despite A.R.S. 13-3102. I seem to remember AZCDLFred talking about detainment or arrests on B or C. I could argue that C would include a purse or fanny pack designed for carry. I could also lose in court. (Granted I'm not a woman or under 21)
I cut out a lot of that statute, so you should follow the link above and read it.
Or is such an ambiguous word. I could read that to say you are prohibited from carrying on a means of transportation period, locked in a separate case or not. Nevermind, the or refers to in or on. I missed the in word. See why lawyers are so important.
13-3102. Misconduct involving weapons; defenses; classification; definitions
A. A person commits misconduct involving weapons by knowingly:
1. Carrying a deadly weapon except a pocket knife concealed on his person or within his immediate control in or on a means of transportation:
(a) In the furtherance of a serious offense as defined in section 13-706, a violent crime as defined in section 13-901.03 or any other felony offense; or
(b) When contacted by a law enforcement officer and failing to accurately answer the officer if the officer asks whether the person is carrying a concealed deadly weapon; or
2. Carrying a deadly weapon except a pocket knife concealed on his person or concealed within his immediate control in or on a means of transportation if the person is under twenty-one years of age; or
I highlighted knowingly because I appreciate that our legislators put the thought into it.
I think part of the intention of (e) is to prevent you from being charged for concealed carry if you are 18 -20 and carrying in a vehicle with a holstered firearm. Notice I put the statutes in the code tag because that's what it is without precedent.
B. Subsection A, paragraph 2 of this section shall not apply to:
1. A person in his dwelling, on his business premises or on real property owned or leased by that person or that person's parent, grandparent or legal guardian.
2. A member of the sheriff's volunteer posse or reserve organization who has received and passed firearms training that is approved by the Arizona peace officer standards and training board and who is authorized by the sheriff to carry a concealed weapon pursuant to section 11-441.
3. A firearm that is carried in:
(a) A manner where any portion of the firearm or holster in which the firearm is carried is visible.
(b) A holster that is wholly or partially visible.
(c) A scabbard or case designed for carrying weapons that is wholly or partially visible.
(e) A case, holster, scabbard, pack or luggage that is carried within a means of transportation or within a storage compartment, map pocket, trunk or glove compartment of a means of transportation.
