    Open Carry In Sioux Falls

    Hello,
    Im Kinda new to shooting and have already owned 2 hand guns. I already have my CC for transporting my gun when traveling accross the state. I am concidering OC. I have only seen maybe 5 or 6 people doing this during my 7 years of living here. My question is, other than the laws, are there any "unwriten rules" or things you should and shouldn't do when OC? I am kind of scared of OC because of the very few people I have seen OC.

    You are not Alone

    Hey Glad to see another person from my area OCing. I have been OCing for awhile in my area, but I have done it several times in Sioux Falls.

    1. Follow State law like you mentioned.
    2.Be courteous to others. Answer thier questions if you want to.
    3. Be more aware of your surroundings
    4.Be courteous but stand your ground. you are a lawabiding citizen and doing nothing wrong.

    Look around on the forum and read some LE and CIV encounters. Also actually go out and OC. Please PM if you have some questions.

    Thanks XD
    I think once I start OCing and maybe be around other OCers I will fell a little more comfortable with it. Also I have been reading the forum and seen that some people are trying to set up OC gatherings. Just wondering if there is one in town soon or who is trying to set one up. 1 more question is what places in sf are OC friendly?

    Good day, I'm from AZ looking to move to Sioux Falls

    My wife hates the desert and we're looking to move to a nice place in the north, Sioux Falls has topped our list. I OC here everyday. I love AZ's gun laws, and the culture might be one of the most tolerant in the nation, but our time here is coming to an end. If we move to SD, I plan on OC'ing regularly and probably CC'ing as well. It appears that OC isn't that popular up there. My question is mainly about OC tolerance. I have no problem answering question and being looked at weird. I like informing and would also like to be apart of OC gatherings. Anyway, I wish the OC'ers the best of luck up there and hopefully I'll be able to join the club.
    T.V. brings on a whole new meaning to thinking inside the box.

    It is mostly you get wierd looks at, but our small group are slowly getting them used to it. South Dakota is pretty free when it comes to gun rights but not as much as AZ. Cops will be cops. They know it is legal to OC, but some of them will enforce thier opinion and not law. Some won't care till you break the law. It just isn't as practiced up here like in AZ. I looked at Sioux Falls firearms ordiances and they have really none to speak of. I OCed many times and really nobody cared. If you have any questions i will be mare than happy to help you out.
