Welcome to OCDO Zscorpion44. This website truly is a great source of information. As a matter of fact, you may open carry wherever permitted even without a CHP (Here in VA it's called a Concealed Handgun Permit). I've been open carrying here in NoVa for the past several years without a CHP and have had no real problems. There have been the wide-eyed stares and the whispered "He's got a gun" but no LEO has confronted me. Just remember where you may NOT open carry and you should be fine.
Again, welcome home!
