There is NO SUCH THING as open carry in mississippi, the license statute says you can't open carry, but WE CAN NOT OPEN CARRY IN MISSISSIPPI,
EVERYTHING IS CONCEALED IN MISSISSIPPI...
sorry for caps, but it's the truth
read a few posts down about the supreme court ruling and send that back to them, it's IMPOSSIBLE to carry openly, your concealing it if you hang it by a string around your neck. By the case laws in this state you can carry it any-way you please on your hip, in your pocket, as long as you have a permit.
Your completely in compliance with the law if you have it on your hip.
