    I just recently got my CPL from Michigan.

    I understand Ohio recognizes CPL's from Michigan.

    What are the laws in Ohio regarding transporting a firearm via CCW ?

    Thanks

    The relevant state law is linked here: http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2923.16.

    Transporting is distinct from carrying, as such, here. The above link covers transportation.

    Thanks Legba

    (E) No person who has been issued a license or temporary emergency license to carry a concealed handgun under section 2923.125 or 2923.1213 of the Revised Code shall do any of the following:

    (1) Knowingly transport or have a loaded handgun in a motor vehicle unless one of the following applies:

    (a) The loaded handgun is in a holster on the person’s person.

    I just want to verify that it is legal to transport a loaded firearm as long as it is in a holster and on your person.

    Am I correct ???

    Thanks

    Yes.

    Additionally, you (as a permit holder) can secure a loaded gun in a glove box or other container, etc, in the car as enumerated elsewhere in that section. Bear in mind that you do need a holster (or purse or whatever else, as enumerated) to carry it on your person - tucking a gun in your belt is technically a violation, even with the permit.

    Also, make note of the parts about how to handle a police stop.

    You MUST notify if carrying, but ONLY if carrying.
