Thread: Can I open carry?
Hello members of OpenCarry.org,
I am an avid member of the NRA and also have multiple memberships to gun ranges around Ohio. I'm wondering if I can open carry? What are the restrictions here and what type of holster is required?
The gun I'd be open carrying would be a Ruger SR9C.

Thank You very much Sir. I will advise after I have checked out the link you've provided!
In Ohio, because of the vehicle carry restriction you mention, many OC advocates (perhaps grudgingly) go ahead and get their concealed carry license.
As you have already determined, open carry is legal, but you may find yourself to be the recipient of threatened (or actual) charges of disorderly conduct or inducing panic, or lengthy "investigative stops". On the other hand, you may simply find that people are inquisitive about your carrying.
Be prepared to fully handle either eventuality.
