Hello there, and nice to see someone fairly close to me on here!
As for your question, make sure it is in plain open sight and no way can be construed as concealed. For this reason I would not have it in a hip holster as it may not be visible to an officer who approaches you from the driver side window. Also, be prepared for uninformed officers to give you grief. Most won't, but I know of a couple in the Elkins area that might.
