    AZ honors both Nevada's and Utah's permit so you can carry any way you want in your vehicle. Be careful if you cross into Indian land though, they have different rules.

    If you stay on highways through indian land you are shield. Just plan it so you dont stop to get gas on the reservation.

    In case you're interested, these are the open carry laws for within a car: Either in plain sight, or in the glove compartment or center console. In a holster (that's not covered) on your body is considered in plain sight. Or of course, you can carry it in the trunk. It CAN be loaded, including having a round in the chamber.

    Since a belt holster on the body really isn't visible from outside the vehicle (and would be hidden by the seatbelt) then it's concealed according to case law (Adams, Moerman.)

    I wouldn't say "is concealed," I'd say, "could be considered concealed." I've never met a cop who would consider it concealed, and I carry on my hip in my car all the time.

    I'm not lawyer, so I admit I may have missed some nuances in Adams, but in Moerman, both defendants were carrying in fanny packs. Anyone can see that carrying a gun in a fanny pack is concealed, and is completely different than carrying in a holster that does not hide the firearm.
