    Planning a trip down from Nevada

    Looks like I will be hitting OKC and Tulsa near the end of October. Am I correct in understanding your state recognizes all concealed permits but I will not be allowed to OC?

    Any good places I should check out while I am in the area?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, Oklahoma honors every state's permits. And we go open carry (with your permit) on Nov 1st. Some one correct me if I'm wrong, but I *THINK* that Oklahoma is supposed to honor open carry if your home state has open carry without a permit (constitutional carry).

    At the moment it looks like after Nov 1, we will honor the 4 constitutional carry states drivers licenses as permits. If you reside in a state that issues CC permits but not OC permits, then it looks like you would need to get your states CC permit to carry in OK.

    Thanks I was getting confused by OCBI.

    Hopefully we all get constitutional carry in our states, and congrats on getting OC legally allowed!

    Places to visit in OKC
    1. H&H gun range off I40 and Meridian
    2. Outdoor America
    3. Heartland Outdoors

    Tulsa
    1. 2A shooting center on Admiral
    2. Oklahoma Police Supply - just east of 2A
    3. Sports World on 41st west of Memorial

    This list is by no means complete, and I hope others chime in with other places to visit as well.

    There's one thing that keeps popping up in the law that bugs me. It keeps saying "and whose names appear on a list." If my home state, Texas, where I'm licensed, does not have OC will I be legally able to OC in Oklahoma after November 1? I know, of course, OK and TX have reciprocity, but this little phrase keeps creeping into the back of my head. My name will not be on any list in Oklahoma.

    Sorry about that last question. I kept reading and finally got to the updated reciprocal agreement part.

    So, now, what constitutes "contact" with a LEO? Is it if and when I'm asked for ID or does being in the same line at Subway constitute "contact?" Common sense would say, no, but just thought I'd ask.

    Currently, "first contact" means as soon as the officer walks up to you, keep in mind this is only for any arrest, detainment or routine traffic stop.

    As of Nov 1, this will change to "first opportunity", so when the officer approaches and you try and notify and they tell you to be quiet, you can wait until they ask you to speak and then inform them without fear of violating the law.

    After Nov 1, anyone with a CC permit from any state Oklahoma has reciprocity with, will be able to OC in Oklahoma.

    Well it is unfotunate that I can not OC there since our states have no reciprocity nor is their a permit for OC in my state.

    Even though there is no reciprocal agreement between the states, Oklahoma will honor the Nevada CC Permit. So if you have a NV CC Permit, you would be able to OC after Nov 1. Oklahoma honors all other states permits.

    Sounds like it means "official" contact and not just casual. Excellent!

    This should be a great thing for Oklahoma. I'm happy for you all.

    Actually, it's a little more restrictive than that. Oklahoma law requires the situation to be an arrest, detainment or traffic stop before the requirement to notify comes into play.

    First thing you need to do: When you leave NV...forget everything you think you know about firearm law...you are no longer in NV.

    Whatever state you enter...that is the law you need to know. What NV says you can or cannot do means nothing, except in NV, and EVERY state is different.
    OK?
    www.handgunlaw.us is a very good place to look for the information you need. It also has links to the state law of each state.

    Thanks for the link! Main differences I noticed are signage and and not carrying in a business that primarily deals with alcohol. On the plus side I also downloaded a copy of the self defense act and I will be with a liscensed concealed carry and pro OC person while im there.

    Thanks for all the great info.
