TraderJack Posted July 10, 2010 Share Posted July 10, 2010 Waterdog69 is correct... And I'm more than a little curious that nobody spoke up about this before now?!? The State of Indiana issues a License To Carry a Handgun. (See Indiana Code - IC 35-47-2-3) If you have the LTCH, Indiana permits Open Carry. There is nothing in the law that stipulates the firearm must be concealed. BUT... Just a note of caution - When I moved here and obtained my LTCH, I had a chat with the local Police Chief about what his expectations were and asked him to explain the 'local SOP' to me. You know... "When in Rome... Do As The Romans Do". He said that while I had every right to openly carry my ivory clad Colt Commander any way I wanted, he would ask that I do him a HUGE favor and carry it somewhat concealed. (That is to say under a vest or shirt or jacket.) His words, "While we respect your rights to carry, we PLEASE ask you to help us keep the peace. Our main concern is to not scare folks that have no idea about guns or our carry laws. We ask that you PLEASE do not alarm the SHEEPLE." Of course we both chuckeled, but since that day, I have honored the Chiefs request and carry discretely - while not always concealed. But the law allows open carry.
