    I'll still carry. In fact, I'll carry more due to not having to worry about GFSZ and in the car.

    Yea, makes those short stops less of a hassle where before I'd just leave it in the car. Also don't need to worry if I might have to walk off private property.

    I prefer open carry as I do beleive it is a deterent to a BG if he is able to see the firearm before he decides to start any sh!t.... I know, I know, some say it makes you a target... first one shot and all that.... Blah Blah Blah.... Whatever...

    I have said in past posts that I will continue to open carry even with my permit and that the only reason I got it was for the GFSZ thing and to be able to carry loaded ANYWHERE in a vehicle I want, which will be either holstered on my hip or in my soon to be attached (within easy reach) holster to enable faster draw than holstered on my hip (while sitting in the vehicle).

    But, I will admit that today I am carrying totally concealed (just to see how it feels) and it ain't too bad. I am carrying my Glock 27sc Gen. 4 / .40 Cal. in a IWB holster @ about 2 o'clock for easier / faster access. Another reaon I perfer open carry is I also believe that open carry allows for a faster draw that concealed carry. I admit to not having practiced (much) my concealed carry draw and for future concealed carry outings, I will be practicing more.

    All in all I will be open carrying 90 - 95% of the time, every day, and concealed carry when the situtation leads itself towards concealed carry. At least by concealed carring every now and then I will have become more familiar with it than never CC'ed at all.

    Can someone please either tell me what has changed for OC, or point me where I can find the proper ways to OC?

    For example, if I am open carrying, am I now able to keep holstered while in my car, or do I have to do the "dance"? I am waiting for my CWP License, but if I decided to start open carrying while waiting, I want to make sure I am following the law.

    You can carry in your car now, you don't need a CCL. One thing to be mindful is to watch out for GFSZ, but that is "only" a $1,000 forfeiture if you are (knowingly?) in one. The only other restrictions to OC is you cannot carry in a place that serves alcohol for consumption, unless you have the owner/manager on duty's permission, state parks, and public buildings.

    If you want someone to go with you, find someone in your area: http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...-a-first-timer

    Uh oh. Was way up north last weekend and OC'd in a tavern drinking soda without owner/manager permission thinking the CCL was good for that.

    Did I mess up?

    No one said a word.

    Nope, you didn't mess up. They were talking in the context of someone without a CWL.

    I OC'd in a bar last night to watch the Bears-Eagles games. That created some conversations and I started spreading the word about the FREE WCI Handgun Safety courses that will available locally. This was a country bar not far from my house. Most of the guys that were in the were just getting a meal and beer after working the farm before heading home.

    Thanks Brass. It does look like 941.237(3)(cx) has me covered for that.

    941.237 Carrying handgun where alcohol beverages may be sold and consumed.

    (2) Whoever intentionally goes armed with a handgun on any premises for which a Class “B” or “Class B” license or permit has been issued under ch. 125 is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.

    (3) Subsection (2) does not apply to any of the following:

    (cx) A licensee, as defined in s. 175.60 (1) (d), or an out−of−state licensee, as defined in s. 175.60 (1) (g), if the licensee or out−of−state licensee is not consuming alcohol on the premises.

    Whew.

    I am casual carrying. Basically, open carry holster and no longer giving a cap if my jacket flaps over it.

    Welcome... There is still some difference of opinion as to exactly where loaded open carry in a vehicle is considered legal. Actually, loaded open carry in a vehicle that is not visible from someone standing outside the vehilce can be concidered concealed carry and illegal. It is for this reason that some are advocating mounting a holster on top of the dash for 100% legal loaded open carry in a vehicle without the permit. It is a personal choice as to your fellings of mounting a holster on the dash. After you get your permit (license), obvioulsy you can carry anywhere, anyway you like in a vehicle.

    I am REAL close to you so if you have any other questions or would like some pointers on open carry let me know here or PM. I have been open carrying daily for a while now...
