Thread: Lexington, KY Open Carry
First off, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Thomas Logan and I am a brand new member here at OC.org! I have lived in Lexington, KY all my life and just recently turned of age to open carry a pistol. Yesterday, I went to my local firearms dealer and purchased a KelTec PF9 and plan on open carrying from now on out.
The question I have for this community is: Have you guy's and gal's ever had any issues with open carry in Lexington? I'm worried I may be stopped by the LPD for carrying my firearm.
40+ years of experience says this: Absolutely Do NOT be a nervous Nelly (always checking your weapon), if you feel the need to check your weapon, use your elbow not your hand.
DO use a top rate holster with good retention..and guess what...no one will notice.
If you went to a federal licensed firearms dealer to purchase your handgun then you didn't just turn of age to carry openly, youve been of age for 3 years. You can OC at the age of 18, you just cant buy a handgun from an ffl, or carry concealed until your 21, however you could have bought one from anyone that was privately selling such a gun. Ky is very friendly to gun owners and carriers, just remember that federal buildings and certain federal properties, any k-12 school property, courthouses that house only the court of justice, detention facilities, and certain preschool and childcare facilities are off limits. You can carry at every other location within the commonwealth. However, always check on everything you read on here for yourself. Welcome to the forum and enjoy.
