    Open Carry Group in Fort Wayne, Indiana

    Is anyone interested in getting together once a month for breakfast? My thought is to organize a meeting where OC'ers in Fort Wayne might begin to get people used to seeing law abiding citizens carring their firearms in a public, non-threatening way.

    Red face Great Idea

    If I didn't live so far away, I would attend. I am about an hour and a half away. Great Idea though.

    You might check out this lunch event scheduled at the Lone Star in Ft. Wayne on July 17th to meet some other local carriers and coordinate for future get togethers.

    Hogeater,

    If you haven't already, could you post up over at http://ingunowners.com/forums/ingo_e...ul_2010_a.html.

    That way it will be easier for me to keep track of who is coming.

    Thanks,

    I live in fort wayne and would love a open carry group here in my home town. Tho with the Progressive liberal mayor we have, and his lap dog Rusty York cheif of the FWPD, it will get dicy quickly. LOL It should be fun.

    That is my only fear. I know the county cops, and they are cool with the oc thing, they know the law. From the FWPD officers i have talked to have no idea and will pull detain you on the spot.

    I like the idea, and would join the group, but ill be scared out of my mind the whole time.

    How did it go?
    We shoulda went to the meet & greet. Convention wasn't bad but not worth the money. Tried to find some piercing jewelry but they had none. Had my 380 in my boot and while eating my 40 on my hip. No problems at Sara's in Coventry but it was only visable while seated.

    I'd be interested in joining you at your next event. Glad someone is helping to educate the public on this issue!

    I live in Oxford, Ohio. About 15 or so miles from the Indiana bourder. I will be getting my CCP in about a month here. I know Indiana hornors the permit and from this thread I see it is legal to OC there. My questions are, 1: Can you carry loaded (some state are weird on this)? 2: Can you carry on your person when in a vehicle (once again some states are weird on this)?

    Thank You.

    As long as you have a valid permit from any state or even a foreign country, you can carry open or concealed in IN.

    Once you start spending time here, you may not want to go back. I came from Ohio in 2007 Indiana is not weird about any gun laws anymore (except the $125 tax to get a carry license).

    If you have a LTCH, you can open or conceal carry in all the same places.
