Obviously it wasn't concealed if other people noticed it. The statute (KRS 527.020 subsection 8) says this about a loaded weapon in a vehicle:
That does not mean that the firearm is concealed if it is in another part of the vehicle, it means that the firearm being in a glove compartment is not considered concealed by law. The statute only states that the firearm is not considered concealed when in the glove compartment. It does not say whether the firearm is concealed/openly carried if it is in another area. So as long as you have it in plain view you should be legal.(8) A firearm or other deadly weapon shall not be deemed concealed on or about the person if it is located in a glove compartment, regularly installed in a motor vehicle by its manufacturer, regardless of whether said compartment is locked, unlocked, or does not have a locking mechanism. No person or organization, public or private, shall prohibit a person from keeping a firearm or ammunition, or both, or other deadly weapon in a glove compartment of a vehicle in accordance with the provisions of this subsection. Any attempt by a person or organization, public or private, to violate the provisions of this subsection may be the subject of an action for appropriate relief or for damages in a Circuit Court or District Court of competent jurisdiction.
