    You do not indicate whether you have a permit from another state - one recognized by Alabama. You cannot OC in a vehicle in 'Bama w/o such a permit.

    If you have a permit from your home or other state, it's recognized by AL; AL recognizes all permits from all other states.

    Carrying a gun in a vehicle, open or concealed, requires a permit. OC while walking around, not required. CC requires a permit. No permit, you can transport the gun in a vehicle in a locked container without ammo, not available to the driver or passengers; read the reg's posted above.

    Goes to prove the caveat about asking LEO for legal advice.

    It most assuredly does not have to be concealed when the actor has a permit.

    Nor is AL a "must inform" state. Fail for the OP for calling the police, the last people that should be asked about gun laws. Derp!
