    First welcome to OCDO.

    We never recommend asking a LEO about the law - lots of very good reasons.

    Presuming you are not otherwise restricted, yes you can carry on your own property CC or OC w/o a permit as well as loaded in a vehicle

    An excellent source of information regarding Kentucky gun laws may be found here.

    BTW - very few handguns have clips. They are magazines.
    Better to not open your mouth and be thought the fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.

    You are lucky to be in ky. It is a constitutional open carry state.
    What the others have said is accurate.

    Basically without a ccdw permit you can have a loaded firearm anywhere in your car or on your person as long as it is visible. You can also have it in any factory installed box like center console or glove box.

    Nothing to add here except to say Hello and Welcome. I too am in the Madisonville area. Stop in at the Gun Counter at Rural King and say hi. -Bill
