You're right it's not complete state preemption. The following preemption statute allows regulation on local government owned property other than roads. Also a local government can keep a new gundealer from opening business closer than 200 feet to a school.
Congratulations you now have a License To Carry a Handgun. It is not a concealed carry permit. The state doesn't care how you carry it open or concealed.
You also live in a state with complete preemption it doesn't matter what the local authorities think about your choice on how to carry they can't legally do anything about it.
Better check on that preemption. I believe Indianapolis has some stipulations concerning their city parks and city buildings.
