    (14) LONG GUN CARRY IS OFF-TOPIC: This web site is focused on the right to openly carry properly holstered handguns in daily American life. We do NOT promote the carry of long guns. Long guns are great! OCDO co-founders John & Mike and most of the members of this forum own at least one long gun - but due to urban area issues of muzzle control, lack of trigger guard coverage, and the fact that the long gun carry issue distracts from our main mission to promote the open carry of handguns in daily life, we will leave long gun carry activism in the capable hands of the future founders of web sites about long gun carry.

    Can I carry a handgun in an inside-the-waistband holster leaving the grip and back 1/3 of the slide exposed and still be considered open carrying? Not trying to push my luck, just only have that style holster for my gun.

    As long as the grip is exposed you should be fine with that. Its obvious that you are not attempting to conceal the gun.

    but bear in mind; some animals in the woods may be uneasy or upset by the sight of your firearm.

    I carried a concealed gun for about 10 years in SC before I moved here. While I carried in a 'holster', it was a Concealco IWB.

    The legal requirement there is, "... hidden from public view in normal wear of clothing..."
