We have no problem Carrying Open but where does it say that we can?
If the law doesn't say you can't do something, then you can. Ibelieve the deal is though that without a license, you can only carry an "unloaded" gun, and per Utah law, an "unloaded" gun is at least two actionsaway from firing, so you could carry your gun without a round in the chamber legally so long as it is not concealed. Racking the slide and and pulling the trigger would be the two steps.
I'm not an expert on Utah law, but that is my understanding of it.
