    Greetings To All. New member from Billings here. CC for several years, very interested in OC (although I'm admittedly ignorant about the legalities). Any members from Billings who can shed some light on any OC experiences they have had here in town.

    Welcome to OCDO!

    OC is legal without a permit anywhere you can legally carry. I can only remember 1 member from Billings -MattJohnston -and haven't seen him around much lately.

    kd7one, just out of curiosity, are you a Ham? Your name on here kinda' sparks that interest.

    Thought so. I'm working on getting my license. Hopefully sometime soon! Both my parents are Hams (literally and figuratively) and I hope to get my license before too long!!

    New member here. Live by the evil WALMART in the Heights. Looking for clarification on open carry in the Billings city limits. I thought Billings had its own ordinance outlawing open carry. I know out of the city limits I am good to go. Yes, I do have a CCWP.



    Thanks for any help

    Welcome aboard! Couldn't tell you about Billings as I've only been there for church conferences.

    All the rules "changed" last week (so to speak) but no, OC is cool in Billings, exceptwhere posted No Guns (Big Bear is the only one I know of).But that doesn't bother me, since they don't want my business I have no reason to go to Big Bear. And of course EVERY Business has the right to askyou to leave, & if you don't you are committing Criminal Tresspass. ... which is one reason why I just CCW... what they don't know... and the other is why bother to upset anyone?

    Im going up there to Billings for my sisters wedding in July - I take it I shouldn't have any problem carrying there correct?

    Here in AZ no one really cares, can I expect the same from the residence of Billings?

    Shouldn't be anymore difficult to carry here than it is there. Most resident's of Montana accept it as every-day apparel. There are those who will give you a little bit of crap, but take it with a grain of salt. You'll be in good company, lots of others carry in Montana so don't feel alone!
