    Please give us your state, which LTCF/CCW/CHPs from which states you have, and your age. Then we can tell you


    ETA: Oh, and it would be great if you could tell us the states in which you'd like to OC in a car, if you plan on traveling with a gun outside your home state.

    ETA2: And please hit the "caps lock" key before writing your next post... We're a polite society here, and don't like yelling.

    ETA3: By the way, welcome!

    You may want to wait for someone who has a full knowledge of AZ law so they can cite the specific laws to you.

    It looks to me that whether or not you have a license, you can carry in your car in Arizona so long as the gun is in your glovebox or "clearly visible". Once again, you'll want to wait for someone to quote the legal definition of what "clearly visible" is.

    Just don't drive north. Unlicensed car carry isn't allowed in Utah. Be careful driving west, too, so you don't end up in California. Both Nevada and New Mexico seem good to go for openly carrying in your car without a license.

    ETA: Mods might want to transfer this to the Arizona sub-forum?

    dont know about AZ but it's not in ohio.. so even if it is in AZ make sure you check out other states if you leave.

    I know OC is a no-go in a car in KY (unless it's in the glovebox, or you have your CCDW License).

    I thought you could have a loaded gun (even without a permit) in the car in KY as long as it was in plain view?

    Any Arizona residents (or those familiar with AZ law) around to confirm this information for our new member?

    Oddly the answer can be found right on this website. See the Travelers Map on the main website page.

    That's where I got the answers, but I was looking for the relevant statutes... I've been looking through AZ statutes and have been unsuccessful in finding where it discusses car carry.

    It most likely won't, likely is a Tradtional Open Carry state. That which is not prohibited is allowed.

    It was discussed in the Kentucky forum:

    I probally figured it out by reading the KRS regarding guns in a vehicle ...

    As far as I understand it you can open carry in your car in Arizona without any sort of license.

    I lived there for seven years (mostly just south of Tucson) and open carried in the car, on walks in the desert - all over. I still do when I am back visiting in the area. I have heard nothing about the laws changing on this in Arizona.

    We've been talking/debating this on the UTAH forum, if you have any relevant info (statute, AG opinion, case law), feel free to chime in over there. So far my research has come up short on this...
