    new to ohio and have a few questions

    I'm not sure if this is the right thread but since it says Ohio I think it would do best here. I'm new to Ohio and am from the god awful state of Illinois. I'm out here for school and am 18. I would like to cary a firearm with me and want to make sure that I do everything right, so naturally I have a few questions.

    Does open carry only apply to ohio residents?
    Are there any states that I can get a concealed carry permit that applies in ohio?
    I think I can get a north dakota permit but I can only get a class 2 which ohio doesnt reconize. Is that correct?
    Where are you allowed to/not allowed to open carry?
    What are ohios laws for handguns for persons under 21?

    Thanks in advance and im looking forward to your responses

    Tyler,
    You have to be 21 in Ohio to get a CCW and carry. I believe you must be 21 to OC as well.

    18 to OC according to information provided here:
    http://www.opencarry.org/oh.html

    Be sure to research the laws yourself though - follow the links and read this state forum. The answers to those questions and many more are there - you can't afford to take the word of someone else. That and your questions are way to broad for any simple one post answer.
