But to answer your question it is not illegal to conceal carry any weapon without a holster. I conceal carry in the waistband with no holster sometimes. I also have a N82 Tactical IWB holster I use as well.

I have one for both of my pistols now. Springfield XDM, and Kimber 1911. I will purchase one for every gun I own. It is truly the best holster I own. Even good for open carry in the waistband, not as easy though.

I took lunch to my wife today at her work (convenience store) and as we are setting at the tables eating, I see an 80's hippie looking van with Kalifornia tags pull in. The guy driving could have been Shaggy's twin brother. LOL. Anyhow, Shaggy comes into the store and walks by me and does the bug eye :shocker::shocker: and the short conversation goes as follows:

Shaggy: WOW!! Carrying a GUN is really scary!!

Me: No, NOT carrying a gun is really scary! :lol::banana::D

Shaggy: Man, I don't F with that stuff!

End of sotry! Shaggy left and headed back to his great state. LOL.

I know, it wasn't very exciting, but was kinda funny. :lol:


I OC every day and it is always a nonevent, just as it should be!
I think most people don't notice or just don't care.

STAY SAFE AND CARRY ON!

People do some funny things. I actually had a guy walk up to us in uniform and hold his hands up saying he just wanted a glass of water. We just ignored him and he then said "You guys got guns and that dont agree with me" Again we just said nothing and focused on our task. He walked backwards away from us watching the whole time.

On a serious note though more then anything I think appearance has alot to do with how people react. When I do open carry I wear a polo or nice shirt (Usually representing Glocks) and my normal 5.11 pants (Khaki) and most people dont say anything. Since I clean shave and wear a standard leather holster made by G and G it just represents professionalism so most people never say anything. I have seen some people who need a boot in their back door like wearing a firearm in the small of their back or even wearing it illegally like tucked in their wasteband without a holster (Open carry)

If I was to say anyone thing was more important then anything winning the antis over it would be be presentable and quit doing like the boneheads did in Washington carrying rifles at the ready wearing trench coats.

You do know that this post is in the OK subforum, don't you? Is carrying a firearm in your wasteband (sic) without a holster illegal in OK? If not, what state are you referring to and please cite the statute?
In OK, in order to open carry, the handgun must be carried in a belt holster or shoulder holster, or case or scabbard designed for carrying the firearm. If you carry concealed, there is no restriction on using a holster.

Carried into the local diner a few weeks ago, (OC like 95% of the time/CC other 5%, and idk how many times I have went into said diner). While I was paying for my meal to go, I noticed the waitress notices my XD9/Kydex Paddle holster on my hip. Her eyes kinda got big, but she never said anything. I told her thank you and went about my business.

I guess she didnt realize that I have had a handgun on me EVERY time I have went into the store.
But pretty much a non event.

Yes it is unless its in a holster or scabbared. I specifically stated open carry which by definition states any firearm that is wholey or partially detectible is open carry.

hrdware posted the link already so thank you to hrdware and yes im tired and know there are typos lol

Thank you for the cite.
No problem. I've got the OK firearm laws down to the point I almost know the section numbers without looking and can find the cites in a flash.

Tried a new BBQ place the other night. Smokies, on 71st, 2 miles into Wagoner County. Just the smell would put a smile on your face. Lots of good BBQ for the price. the place was standing room only. I don't think anyone even noticed my OC. Too busy with a face full of ribs and such.

Wal Mart at 71st and the Creek turnpike. Was checking out with a load of groceries, the cashier noticed my OC and asked if I carried my gun with me everywhere. I said just about everywhere it is legal. She mentioned that it would be a few years before she could get a permit and carry. She likes to shoot, but alas, she had just turned 18 a few days prior. I encouraged her to keep her hand in it to be ready when she was of age.

OKIE, I was just curious. does OK deny you right to carry in the state. Why can she not carry now?

"Be at least 21 years of age. (Note: You may take this course before age 21, but may not submit an application before age 21)."
http://www.tulsaredcastlegunclub.com/concealed-carry/

"Effective November 1, 2012, Oklahoma modified their “Concealed Carry Permit” to be a “Carry Permit” which allows the permit holder to carry either openly or concealed as they see fit. However, open carry without a permit is still prohibited."

Here in Tulsa DLOs office is actually in our building which is gun free. To date Ive not escorted anyone out of the office I do know the ladies would be quick to call us. They have huge signs all over the campus and their office door.
