Re: Open Carry (aka "OC")
Oklahoma allows for conceled carry right now. When November arrives our conceled carry permit becomes a carry permit, open or conceled.
The main reason for this is to prevent a person legally carrying conceled from being prosicuted if he or she accidently "prints".
That said, we will be able to openly carry sidearms, as long as we have the permit. However, most police departments have said that they will check to see if anyone carrying in the open has the required license.
Open or conceled. You will need the license.
All this said. I will be pleased to have my Browning Buckmark on my hip while fishing.
