    Is it legal to OC and/or concealed carry a handgun at Reagan National Airport?

    I'm not planning upon going in, but are the non-secure areas legal? What about not stepping into the building?

    FYI.. FedEx and others are Air Carriers as well even though they dont carry PAX. So if you go into FedEx at Dulles you are IN an air carrier terminal. Ed

    This is good because you can park and legally leave weapons in your car, or carry whilst picking up a loved one (outside but not in, of course), although if you did, I personally would stay in the car .
