Dont know how many from Ohio on here but on April 08, 04 we got our concealed carry law passed.

It has to be one of the worse carry laws in the united states!, when we transport the firearm it has to be carried in one of the following methods.
#! On your person in a holster worn in plain view so that if you get stopped a police officer approaching your vehicle can see it.
When we get out of the car we must then conceal the gun, when we get back in the car we must put the gun back in plain view, it is a real chore just to stop off at a gas station to take a fast leak.
#2 Locked in your glovebox
#3 Locked in a case in plain view

I just carry mine in the glovebox, this would do me no good what-so-ever if I was to be car jacked or needed the gun fast, I have been thinking!, maybe I could put a device on my glove box so that all I would need to do is hit a remote control button on my key ring and the box pops open, I know they make a device like this for the trunk so it could probably be done on the glovebox, maybe invent something like this and sell them at gun shows in do-it-yourself kits and become wealthy?

If you do a search on glock talk I think you'll find that someone has installed one of these. So if you pm them I'm sure you will get some helpful advice.

I usually keep it on me in the car. I have a cheap holster that I put on a leg strap. It clips on and off easily and is better than the glove box. I think Black hawk sells leg straps for $3.

For those times I put it in the glove box I made a copy of the key so I can unlock my glove box quickly. I just set the key on the cup holder when I'm driving. I put the key in the armrest when I'm not.

It figures. I lived right on the Indiana/Ohio line for over three years. I had to be very careful not to cross the state line into Ohio if I had a loaded gun in the car, which was just about always.

The most likely use I had for a gun in the car in Decatur, IN was to deliver a coup de grace to one of the thousands of suicidally despondent deer that seem to inhabit Indiana and Ohio.

I also wanted to be able to say to the insurance agent, "Well, you should see the other guy!" while we were standing there looking at the front-end damage that resulted from the wildlife encounter.

Now I move back to Florida and Ohio goes and not only passes CCW but establishes reciprocity with Florida. As usual, I'm a day late and a dollar short.

I get to try out Ohio's CCW law next weekend, when we come down from MI. I may just bring my cased 625, and not even bother wearing a gun.

This isnt that difficult. Wear a nice holster, outside the pant style. Take a sport coat with you. When you get out of the car, put the jacket on. When you go to get into the car, take the jacket off.

In the meanwhile petition the hell out of the legislation and ask them why they have included such an asinine requirement when other states do not do so... and have them explain why they insist upon the honest citizen doing "stupid human tricks" and let them know that upon the next election, they will be voted out for being jackasses.

I'm an instructor here in Ohio. I happen to agree that it is a stupid requirement. However; there it is. For now we have to live with it. I just decided to make the best of the situation until things settle down and we can start getting some constructive changes through. So for the meantime, my solution is to use a simple, (read that as cheap) web belt cut to length, wrapped around my leg. I sinply take my inside-the-belt holster out and slip it onto the belt. It meets the "on your person, in plain sight" requirements quite easily. And don't worry guys, changes will be made, but it will take a while to get the adjustments done. Remember how long it took to get us this far!

My understanding is that the in plain sight was a done to appease the Ohio State Patrol. Hopefully we will get that changed down the road. I agree with getting it passed into to law and making the necessary changes down the road. We have fought hard to get the conceal carry passed, now we need to concentrate on getting the changes made.

I must agree the Ohio Concealed Carry Law is probably not the best piece of legislation put into effect but it is a start. Now the real work begins. We need to contact our Senators and Representives to make the necessary changes to correct some of the stupid stuff put into the bill at the last possible moment to get the bill passed. If you live here in Ohio, Join the OFCC, take the class, get your permit, and carry. ALL the time. Our strenght is in numbers.

Possession is 9/10ths of the law. Now that we have it, we can work on getting it tweaked.

My instructor said i was the younger male that he had through the class.

Good for me I guess. Gotta have some responsible youngins out there. :wink:

You want to know what sucks about Ohio's CCW?
It's that I live in a town that half of it's in Indiana & half in Ohio.
Talk about a pain in the ___. Yes I have an IN CCW permit.
The only way I've found around this is bye only doing business on the IN side of town. I wish OH would get there Gov. to sign a rep. bill with IN, not just for me but alot of other people also.
PEACE

Florida just announced reciprocity with Ohio. Ohio might already have reciprocity with Indiana. I lived in Decatur, IN for over three years. It wasn't hard to accidentally cross the state line in that area. I feel your pain.

According to the OFCC web site Indiana will recognize an Ohio Permit, but I can't locate any info for the other way around. Other states that has reciprocity with Ohio are: MI, KY, TN, VA, NC, SC, FL, AZ, WY, WA, & AK.

For more info check the OFCC web site: [url="http://www.ofcc.net"]http://www.ofcc.net [url /]

Trust me IN will recognize an OH permit but it DOESN'T work the other way around. Small town I know all the LEO's and it's illegal.
Just suck because like TBeck said its easy to end up in OH.
Especially when the stateline is actually a road :cry:
