    Hey Poke fans! Just thought I'd intro myself having just found this website after watching the Nightline episode tonight about open carry. I grew up in Laramie and even made my folks proud by being a UW grad class of '87!

    Anyways, I am sorry to admit that I had no idea that open carry in Wyoming is as it should be: a no brainer with nobody getting excited because "that guy has a gun on his hip".

    I do have a question though .... I am a resident of Oregon (until I win the lottery and then I'll make my home somewhere in the Centennial Valley ) and will be coming out to see my folks, sis, and neice/nephews here about the 4th of July. Until I saw the Nightline episode I didn't even think about bringing my pistol with me. Of course now I know that there is open carry in Oregon AND Idaho!!!! So the question is (I apologize if it's a dumb one) but does it matter to Wyoming LEO's if I open carry if I am not from the Cowboy state?

    Thanks and GO POKES!

    Welcoem aboard! You're good to go as you must always abide by the laws of the state that your'e in, not where you're from!

    We had Marylanders coming to Virginia to OC all the time when I lived there last year!

    Come to Wyoming friend... Bring your guns... The laws are simple.

    1) do unto others... and so on.

    2) CCW permit required to hide.

    3) OC permitted in most places, might avoid bars, banks, fed buildings... easy!

    4) OK to carry loaded in a car... must be in plain sight

    5) no age limit on OC.

    You will find that most locals will want to see what 'ya got, and show 'ya what they got...

    Mine is a Ruger 'Vaquero' old version .45LC... Western drop down holster with leg tie.

    Backed up by a 'Cobra Ent.' .38spcl derringer on the belt...

    PPL like you are always welcome in Wyoming....... and maybe even a shootout! "TIN CANS AT 25 YARDS"... HARHAR!!! be sure to do a bit of fishing...!!!
