    i am gonna scan and post the whole page.. it is full of useful information but for now i am going to post what is most helpful.. word for word from the page.


    One carries a weapon " upon or about his person" not only when he physically is carrying it in his clothing or in a hand bag of some sort, but also when he goes about with the weapon in such close proxmity to himself that it is readily accessible for prompt use.. (state vs. McNary)

    The general test of concealment is whether a weapon is so carried as not to be discernible by ordinary observation. (idaho vs. McNary)

    under idaho law, a weapon is concealed if it is not to be discernible by ordinary observation.(u.s. vs. thornton)

    where an officer could only see a small portion of a weapon in the defandants car from one particular vintage point, the weapon was not discernible from ordinary observation, and the defendant was properly arrested for carrying a concealed weapon. (idaho vs. button)

    i remember people wanted to know if they could wear a holstered, loadedhandgun on their waist in a vehicle and would it be considered(in plain view).
