    Dont remember how I came across this site but Iam so glad I did. Have just been reading through all the forums for about two weeks now nonstop, and I love reading about other people standing up for their 2ndA rights and I want to start to do it too.

    I am 22 and I will be OC mostly in the Hopkinsville/Oak Grove area and in Paintsville and surrounding areas when I am home. Hoptown area cause I am in the Army stationed at Ft.Campbell and Paintsville cause thats where I am from. I have been reading up on the laws just from what I read on here and the links everyone provides. Where can I go to look and read up on all the KY laws pertaining to OC? And just tips from pple who have carried in these areas.

    I'll be carrying a Kimber Pro Crimson Carry II and hve a Fobus paddle holster. Dont have my CCDW license yet but will be getting it next month whenI have more free weekends.

    I am also going to be in Paintville this wekendand have thought about embarking on my first OC trip in to town

    Thanks everyone for any help and advice. I will greatly appreciate it

    OC is legal in KY state parks. What is in question at the moment is a unconstitutional regulation stipulating no carry in nature preserves.

    Other than that, OC is legal everywhere except bars & schools.

    Legal in bars if it's unloaded, keep the clip in your pocket.

    Legal on K-12 school property if it stays in your glove box.

    No problem.

    It's funny, not too long ago during my CCW class (still OC, nice to have, just in case), I told the class about the bar one and the instructor (ex Sheriffs deputy) was like "What?" Then he looked at the book and with quite a surprised look stated, "He's right".

    He was truly shocked, as was I when I read it the first time.

    Although if one were to go into a bar with a gun, I would strongly suggest not drinking.

    Yes I OC'd in Paintsville this weekend. Just once on Saturday, I went in to Wal-Martget 2 boxes of 30-06 shells. I didnt have any problems...besides all the weird looks I got. O well. It felt good to exercise a right that is all too often forgotten about. Goin to a concealed carry class @ bluegrass indoor range in Louisville this weekend too.

    O and I had read that about ur experience there before I was a member here..helped me take the plunge a little

    Same here, I did my class last Saturday and I'm waiting "patiently" at the moment.
