Depends. If you were issued a qualified
permit with a drinking restriction; no, you cannot drink while carrying concealed
. OC is fine. Although, I think qualified permits were further defined by the AG as place and time restrictions.... the AG ops are not law so don't press your luck.
I'm not exactly sure how a Sheriff establishes a permit as unlimited or qualified. It's never gone to court, but I don't think flyers handed out with the permit would mean anything. If it has restrictions they should probably be listed on
the permit. Since the Sheriff may issue multiple types of permits, how do you know which one you have without it being on the permit itself? IANAL so don't listen to me :P
There is no state law prohibiting intoxication while carrying. And any local law prohibiting carry of handguns
while intoxicated is in violation of state law. (CoA 11-45-1.1)
Carrying intoxicated may
be a liability, however, if you ever do use your firearm.
