I thank you all for all the info you've provided those of us that haven't as yet gotten into Open Carry. Being a "Senior" Citizen, I am now, more than ever, ready to become part of the Open Carry group.
Simple or stupid as it may seem, I can't find any reference to loaded/unloaded open carry except during the transport of a pistol in a vehicle. Obviously, if one is carrying for the purpose of defense, it would be silly to have an unloaded firearm. Can someone cite the Paragraph clearly stating the legality of the Open Carry of a loaded pistol?
For example, there is no law that states making coffee is legal, but there is no law that makes it illegal. Since no law makes it illegal, it is assumed to be legal.
If you read the Wash, Rinse, Repeat, that should be all the info you need.
