    Still allowed to OC once I have my CCW?

    I am wondering if I were to open carry for whatever reason here in Maine and have all my ducks in a row (properly holstered, plain view, not brandishing, legally registered, proper state ID, not a felon, etc...)

    If I get questioned by police am I going to be in trouble because I have a ccw permit but it is not concealed?

    I am sure that will be made clear during your MRS Title 25 Section 2003.1.E(5) training

    Can you still walk, ride a bike, take a taxi or bus, canoe or swim once you've been issued a driving license?

    Short answer, the license is a grant of permission to do a thing, not a prohibition.

    This post suggests that he is already concealing

    A thinking point:

    Once you have your driver's license, are you still allowed to be just a passenger in a vehicle?

    Nope, once you get the privilage card you give up all rights you once had, it's in the fine print.

    in fact there's a completely different set of laws for you now.....

    Since when does Maine have gun registration?

    It doesnt.

    OP....IF this was a serious question...yes you can still open or concealed carry.

    You would do well to use the resources available to look up and learn the laws before you do anything.

    Legally registered you have to register guns in Maine?

    In NC, I can OC, I don't have to register the gun, nor even carry my ID. If I CC, then I have to have my ID and CHP on me.

    I inadvertently left home one day without my wallet, I merely tucked my shirt in behind my gun and went about my business.

    Not our issue, either. Contact your local law enforcement.

    Why would a Maine cop question a OCer? It's not like your gun is tattooed to your belly is it?

    Utah has you beat.... sort of! No requirement to carry ID or permit if you are concealing.... only requirement is that the permit be issued. Oh, yeah, Utah also recognizes ANY permit issued by ANY state or County.

    Now if we could only get rid of the strange obscure "unloaded on a public road without a permit" requirement since ANYONE lawfully in possession of a vehicle or with permission of the one in lawful possession of the vehicle can carry ANYWAY THEY WANT TOO as long as they can legally possess a firearm and are 18 years or older!

    Yep, you have NV beat. If we are concealing and don't have our issued permit in our possession, we can get hit for a $25 civil infraction fine, the same one for driving a car and not having your license with you.

    Granted, you usually get the finger shook at you instead, but they can write the ticket if they want to...
