    Would the open carry of a pistol, such as a CZ-82, in it's original holster be legal? I want to make sure it is not considered concealed. Please see attached picture. Thanks!

    I wouldn't want to be the one in court, fighting a gun charge, insisting that the pouch was a holster.

    It is not recognizable as a holster. Therefore, folks would generally not know that your are carrying.

    IANAL. Make sure you get proper legal advice before carrying in the original holster.

    However, if you update your profile to include your state, folks from your state can help you research your state laws and court rulings. I don't think you'll find that using your holster would be OC.

    Definitive answer not possible w/o knowing the state in question.

    Another good reason to show one's location in their profile.

    I will be moving to Wyoming from Texas. I definitely want to make sure I follow the laws of the land! I love Wyoming's open carry laws!

    It might be a good idea to post this on the Wyoming thread, if you haven't already.
