    I'm honestly not sure, and have no citations to KRS or Federal statues, only what common sense tells me; As long as you have the permission of the vehicles owner, it should be fine, once again my thought on it, if there isn't a law forbidding, nor allowing it, then just grab written permission from the owner as a fall back.

    Though, I'm not sure how the law, state or federal reflects on OC in a vehicle, but I would think it to be considered CC if you have the sidearm -on- you, as no one outside the vehicle can see or take notice, unless you was sitting in an awkward position and the person was standing at your door. </3 gray areas.

    yeah i was thinking the same thing you said about the persons saying it was fine to have it in their car and as long as they are not a felon them self.as for ocing in a car what i read on and everyone has told me on these forums its fine if you put it in the right places.

    as of now i open carry in my girlfriends car but than i came across this and stopped just to make sure it was fine to do so now im asking!

    Laws only state if something is illegal in most circumstances. If it is not against the law then it is legal. I would guess that as long as you keep possession of the gun you could even wear it on your hip in a felons car. I would also venture to say that wearing it on your hip, even in a car, isn't conceal carry anytime. Same logic would state that you can't OC in walmart because anyone outside can't see your gun.

    In my opinion, as long as you have permission to drive the vehicle, then it is in your possession. It being in your possession makes it responsibility, therefore while you're in possession, the vehicle is considered yours, even though it isn't registered to you

    Let's say you're pulled Over in a friends car, there's 10 pounds of marijuana in the trunk, at that point that would be your responsibility. So I believe the same goes with a gun, if you're legally carrying it, and have permission to drive the vehicle you're fine.

    I like your point of view on keeping your firearm in your holster in your car. I always have, but I'm always having people ask me "isn't that concealed?" which I always respond with, "No, it's still visible, that would be like asking if it's concealed because my firearm is on my right hip, my left hip is facing you, and you cannot see it. It's not considered concealed then."
    Then I always get the excuse "it's still concealed" lol

    Not if you remain in possession of it. Also, how old is she? If she is old enough to drive then she is old enough to have a firearm in certain circumstances.

    ALWAYS retain possession of your gun if you think that there will be any problem around juveniles.
