    Open Carry age

    Hi all, I was wondering. Is there an age limit to open carry for handguns in Wyoming? I recently received one as a gift. I am also 20 years old. Also I was wondering. Can I also have my handgun out while I am riding my bike on the Greenway? Thanks all.

    The law regarding open carry in Wyoming does not specify an age to carry, so, in simpler words, there is no age limit.

    As for carrying while riding your bike, as long as it is properly holstered you should have no troubles.

    There is no minimum age to OC in Wyoming.

    So if my understanding is right. Going by the regs my 16y/o son (he knows how to be safe, taught him how to be safe with a gun,and how to shoot since he was 6), can carry while we are working on a ranch in Wy for the summer. Not looking for him to carry all the time just when he heads out to the trails, for Bears and such.
