    Howdy-

    Forgive me for asking a stupid question, but I am EXTREMELY new to open carry.

    I'm 18, and have loved guns all my life. Now...I know that you have to get a permit to concealed carry. Do I have to get a separate permit to open carry? Do I need a permit at all? Does a concealed carry permit cover both types of carries?

    Thank you! (I know I am naive, but what can I do?!?!)

    Open Carry is legal in most of Ne w/o a permit.

    Some references for you to begin your quest.

    You MUST have a permit to open carry in Douglas County. There are several places that offer the class. If you have a CCW you can open carry in Douglas County without the open carry specific permit. Since you're not 21 though you won't be able to get a CCW unless you're active military.

    My understanding was that was in the city of Omaha, not Douglas County.

    Could be. All of the local gun shops I've been to distinguish by county for handgun registration even though the requirement is technically Omaha city limits.

    The wording for open carry is quite similar, so I'd play it safe on the boundaries but that's just me.

    Yes, this is correct. You can't get a CCW to carry a handgun in America. You can carry one without a permit in Afghanistan or Iraq if you join the military, but not in America. You can be a well trained military marksman, but if you ain't 21, no way they'll give you a CCW permit in America. And even if you do join the military, you won't be allowed to carry a weapon on a military base in America. Them (ironically enough) are gun free zones except where designated for training purposes.

    Bewildering, ain't it?

    Blessings,

    In many states you can OC w/o a permit - many (most) under 21 yo.

    http://www.opencarry.org/age.html

    CC has more limitations, but even there the restrictions are not universal.

    Don't be so glum - we are winning.

    The only point I was trying to make was that the Omaha OC permit is waived if you have a CCW. Being 18 the OP will have to get a permit unless they qualify for a CCW in NE. I may not like it, but that's how it is here for now.
