Just so folks can get an idea of how much or little people open carry in Indiana, I thought I'd start a thread.

Tonight at Wal-Mart in Beech Grove (SE Indy) I saw a man open carrying a glock with two mag holder, on a tactical style belt. While wearing camo shorts, and some type of t-shirt. He was with what appeared to be his elderly mother shopping. My bet was he was not a cop-just did not look the type.

So, that aisle had TWO carry persons - one open, one concealed.

I saw an open carry Glock (G22 or G23)at the east side Meijer. The gentleman did have a badge on his belt. don't think he was IPD/MCSD/ISP though. Looked like a private security type.

Discounting the range and gun shop, I have seen one person open carry. A 1911 style with wood grips at Turkey Run State Park, in the nature center. This was back in April or so.

I open carry occasionally on the bike in hot weather.The past couple of weeks I have been leaving my cover shirt unbuttoned due to the heat.When we lived in Indy we used to stop at Dairy Queen or at convenience store at SR 37 and Southport Rd on the way home fro the range and open carry.I`ve seen open carry at Walmart in Greenwood and at Cycle Recycle.

Yeah! When I see my own reflection, I don't know whether to fall in love or draw! :supergrin:

I refrained from the pirouettes, though. Open carry may be legal, but that kind of thing just "ain't right" around here.

Why?

I know the name, but I don't think I've ever met him. What does he look like?

I was carrying openly on my way home from Lebanon again today. I stopped at the Marathon on the east side of C'ville and there was a guy who was very obviously a cop parked at the pump opposite me (he was dressed neatly, had a shaved head, and had lots of attennas on his dark colored sedan). I could tell he "looked" at me while I was walking around my truck pumpin' gas and cleaning a bunch of trash out of the cab, but he didn't say anything to me.

Which is exactly what should have happened. I noticed him and he noticed me, and since we were strangers, there was no interaction. If he'd made eye contact, I would have said, "Howdy!" though, 'cause I'm friendly. :supergrin:

I went to school with Jeff Largent he is an officer with Crawforsville PD. He has a real problem with open carry.He has hassled several of my friends.Of course he has had an attitude problem since elementary school.

At first I thought you were talking about me, that is until you got to the badge part. Although I do get mistaken for a cop quite a bit. I guess it's the short hair, clean cut, young guy in BDU's with a Glock and dual mag pouch thing... :freak: Anybody else who OC's get asked this a lot?

I usually open carry in summer and conceal (if I'm wearing a jacket) in winter. However I have not seen many others around town who OC, with exception of the gun shops...

That's unfortunate. It sounds like he's exactly the kind of person who is attracted to "law enforcment" for the power trip and should absolutely not be allowed to be a police officer.

Perhaps if I have a problem with him, I'll talk to his superiors.

I saw one person open carrying last summer here in La Porte county. Looked like he was carrying a .357 magnum. Other than in gun shops he's the only person I have seen carrying openly.

He got alot of shocked looks while pumping his gas from the sheeple. :upeyes:

I can remember three occasions in the last few years where I saw someone open carrying in the Seymour/Columbus area; with one being just this past Friday.

One was in a restaurant on a well dressed 50 something gentleman with gray hair and a nice .45 in what looked like a quality leather belt holster.

Another was in Walmart where I got in the checkout line behind some schmuch with a Highpoint tucked into the small of his back with no holster.

Then just last Friday I was in the Verizon store in Columbus getting a new phone and my girlfriend pointed out that another man at the counter had a small pistol tucked into his pants at about 5 o’clock. It looked to be about .380 caliber and again was not in a holster. This guy didn’t appear very smart either as he was leaning with both arms up on the counter and his ass sticking out with his pistol displayed for everyone and offering anyone who dared the opportunity to just reach over and grab it. He would have been able to do nothing to prevent it being taken from him. I almost wanted to do it just to teach him a lesson.

I thought State Park carry was a "No-No" here in Indiana. (Not that it has ever stopped me) Correct me if I am wrong.

My position as a Youth Pastor makes it so that I have to always be aware of the image that I am portraying. I think everyone in my church knows that I like guns, and that I have been known to carry occasionally (by occasionally, I mean 99.9%), but they may not like me open carrying too much. So I usually go concealed around town. However, I do open carry every once in a while.


The other day, I was at the gas station and a guy in front of me was open carrying a 1911. Two other guys next to me were arguing about the legality of carrying a gun. Little did they know that he was not the only one carrying. :cool:

According to Indiana Criminal Code state parks are perfectly fine to carry in. The DNR has an administrative policy against it, and I am unsure exactly what weight that carries. In order to be 100% you would have to consult legal advice. Since it is not listed in the criminal code I believe it to be okay, I simply make sure to conceal very well when I am in a state park as I wouldn't want to get kicked out...

More like having your weapon taken away and kicked out.

I open carry every blue moon, usually when in transit to the range. However I do carry IWB with khaki pants and nice causal shirts. People rarely notice the pistol.:)

One of the only times I saw open carry was two kids (I call them kids) about 18 and 19 looked like brothers. Still had that baby fat in their faces. Anyway I was behind them in line at my local Dairy Queen. They were completly not aware of thier surrondings. Good thing I was not intent on ill will. Rhino knows my theory on this. I can't help it. It is drove into me from when I went to the federal firearms instructor school and my agency on a weapon retention. I really wanted to politely mention that to the kid in a productive way of course however, some people might take it wrong so I just let it go.

We stopped at Einsteins Bagels in Speedway this past weekend on the way to the range. Saturday morning, there were 3 MCSD's, and one kept giving me "the look", but I just smiled in return. I'm standing there in khakis, red shirt with Indy Parks logo, spare mags, neat & clean. Does that fit the profile of a miscreant???

Sunday morning a little guy about 10 or 11 came up to me and asked if I was a cop. I told him no. He asked what my spare mags were, and I showed him. He wanted to see one of my 'bullets', so I popped out the top one (45ACP Federal HST). He asked if I'd ever been shot in my bulletproof vest. Had to tell him no. Gave his dad my card and told them to come up and see me at the range sometime.

Did have one guy ask why I carried 2 extra mags, was I expecting a firefight or something?? I just told him it balanced out the load on my belt :freak:

Sunday evening, we went to Texas Roadhouse in Avon for dinner right after work. I did put on my vest to cover my pistol, but I still had my red "CRO" had on. One of the employees came over and asked what it meant, and I told him. May have another range customer now :supergrin:

As a general rule, I like to keep my gun concealed, but there's times it can't be avoided to carry open.

There is no way to politely do it right off the bat. People never take it right. It's like guy at the range who has to come over and the first words out of his mouth are "ya know, you'd shoot alot better if...." It's not your (or my) place to tell a stanger these things. If they shoot crappy or get their weapon snatched oh well. Tough for them (and anyone around them), they should have had better friends to clue them in.

I hardly make more than a half hearted attempt to conceal most days. I've had people tell me "this way or that way" is better or get a longer shirt yada yada. I tell them I don't care if they can see it or not. They look confused. I normally don't bother to get into the inevitable drawn out conversation of open or concealed carry.

Weapon retention is another matter however. If someone can see my weapon, it's not something their going to be easily able to grab. If it's easier to spot, it's because it's in a 'real' holster and I'm less concerned. If I'm stuffing it down my pants, like my Keltec p11 w/belt clip, you won't see it. If for no other reason than when I see a holstered gun my radar only goes off mildly. When I see someone with something just stuck down their pants, I can't help but think 'gangbanger' or punk.

I open carried last halloween in a drop leg holster at walmart. I'm not even sure the 2 cops inside the store realized it wasn't a prop. So far other than running out to get gas I don't blantantly open carry. I'm too close to the state line (Hammond, Highland, Munster area) and I honestly don't want to get harrased with the 'man with a gun' call everytime I step out of my car. Those sheeple from ILL that would call, don't give a second look to something poking out from the bottom of a shirt - must be a cell phone case?
----

Oh yeah I did see a guy in the munster target a few months ago (with his wife or girlfriend) about 20 pounds overweight wearing a skin tight tshirt carrying what appeared to be a glock 17 or 22 under the shirt in a fobus holster. Yes the shirt was that tight. Kinda scarry honestly :supergrin:

I was tempted to ask what model glock it was, but I refrained. I figured the onlyw ay I could say it would come across wrong. I donno if he heard my wife say as we went by "is that a glock under there". or not. She was about .5 seconds slower in noticing it. My wife hates glocks and doesn't know much about them, so for her to pick it out so well... yeah.... disturbing :laughabove:

FWIW I'd like to open carry more. If I had more friends willing to open carry with me I'd do it more often. I just don't like teh whole one on one or more than one on one confrontations that are possible with the locals. With multiple friends, they tend to show alittle more respect.

Now while there seems to be no provision to take the weapon (unlike the state fair rule), I would bet that your friendly DNR officer would do so.

I susepct that most Conservation Officers with a lick of common sense either won't make a big deal of your gun, or might suggest that you conceal it when in a park since technically it's against the rules. I don't know any park rangers, so they're a crap shoot.

Still, it's inevitable that on any given day, the one guy with the badge who sees your gun will have something to prove and will cause you trouble. Discretion is the better way to go when administrative regulations and quasi-laws (like the State Fair thing) infringe on our inherent rights.

I will open carry pretty much any time it is prudent to do so and I feel like it. If someone else wants to do it with me, then they are welcome to do so as well. Since my primary reason for doing so is socio-political re-education, then I would expect that several normal people together who just happen to be carrying would make an even bigger positive impact (where it's possible to be positive), and would probably dissuade overt negative confrontations.

I've been hassled once while open carrying. I was in Wheatfield, Indiana delivering a rifle to a gunsmith to have some custom work done and pulled into a gas station for coffee.

I walked back to the coffee, poured a big cup and then walked up to the front. Plain clothes WPD (or maybe he was a town marshal) was up front making time with the counter girl. He asked me if I had a license and asked asked him "which state do you want to see"?:supergrin:

I could have given him a raft of stuff, but flipped him my wallet to show my little pink card. He commented on all the other state licenses and then told me to "cover up."

I smiled reeeeaaaallll big :supergrin: and said "no, thank you."

lol, i just got back on campus (wabash college). i have been open carrying around town this week. (btw, super wal-mart! lol) i store my firearms off campus in a safe place, but carry when i am off campus. Due to the heat recently i have been open.

the only time i ever got a comment was from a girl in indy. she commented to my friend "is that guy really packing?!" "that's scary".

all that said, i will keep an eye out for cville cops. most of them seem to be ok guys. but if i bump in to officer egomaniac i hope he dosnt give me problems.

toots shor ... you should be okay. Just be prudent and make sure you conduct yourself as you know you should, dress neatly, use a holster, etc.

If we want one in Lafayette and Indy, I can do both!

Re: holsters ... I'll be doing it with IWB holsters. I have a Blackhawk SERPA OWB that I have specifically for open carry, but I'm waiting for a well known Kydex bender to fabricate a better (read: sturdier and more secure) belt loop for it.

Steve ... is Avon the best for you? If anyone else is interested, is Avon too far out?

KSF ... Your regal bearing derived from your noble birth prevents most affrontery! :supergrin:


So ... who else can make it on Tuesday (05SEP06)?

Or will it just be Steve and me? Two lone wolves, making a peaceful political statement for all?

Also ... if you're too wimpy to actually carry openly but want to join us anyway, that's okay too! :thumbsup:

How do we look for this week on Tuesday (tomorrow) and Thursday?

Do we need to make it at lunch, or could be do a 1630-ish late lunch/early dinner or just a hangout so Dan can join us?

Hands? Anyone? Anyone? Beuller?

How about Grindstone Charley's in Speedway at 1630, either tomorrow or Thursday? You can eat or not, drink or not, and if you want to carry openly some of us will be doing so. If you don't feel comfy with it, you don't have to do it, but come anyway to hang out and enjoy the company.

The food was good, the atmosphere fine, and the company was excellent!

Of the eight of us, six carried openly. We had zero problems with anyone. I did notice some curious glances (at the others in the party) from some people when we were outside the front door ready to depart, but it was obviously just some honest and natural curiosity as most people in Speedway don't often see six apparently normal people carrying openly.

Warp ... five of the six of us (including me) were carrying in IWB holsters. We just either tucked in our shirts or removed whatever we normally use for concealment.

Actually, IWB probably offers better retention than a belt holster unless the belt holster has some kind of lock or special retention features (like police duty holsters).

I now have the custom belt loop on my Blackhawk SERPA holster, but I've not yet tested it on the range, so I don't want to carry with it "raw."

We could do something in Lafayette too. I suspect we could get His Lordship KSFreeman, the Earl of Earl Avenue, to join us, as well as a few others from the Lafayette area.

IIRC, Florida's license requires concealment, thus you must carry as if you were in Florida--so, cover up and wear black socks with sandals, wear giant oversized sunglasses, drive at least 20 mph under the speed limit and you may wish to have a golf cart handy, have dinner at 4:30 pm after you stand in line for your food and you must carry photos of your grandchildren with you at all times, just like Florida.

The bottom line is, it ISN"T illegal for us mere citizens to open carry (with proper license, of course - Thank you 'O Benevolent Government for licensing and regulating my Second Amendment right.....).

While it may not always make good sense to open carry in some locales/situations, we should not be made to feel like we are breaking some rule when we do decide to carry openly (or we are acting in a childish manner).

I've had way more positive encounters while open carrying than negative (ie, no screaming soccer mom's or kids...).

Impossible! That could never happen since "everyone knows" that you were only displaying your immaturity and childishly seeking attention. The fact that what you say is true and that it mirrors pretty much all of the rest of our collective experience is meaningless!

A while back I stopped for milk at the gas station at my exit off I-70 and the guy in line in front of me had a Glock and two spare mags on his belt. Was wearing a T-shirt and longish hair, and IIRC was driving an Escort or something similar. Definitely didn't look like a cop. Girl behind the counter didn't seem to notice.

I've had the IWB uncovered when getting mower gas there numerous times (pay at the pump) and I only recall one odd look from anyone at the other pumps, probably an out-of-stater. Been inside a couple of times with no problems. Same thing at the station at the Brazil exit.

Not OC, but one time I was at the Longhorn in Avon and an older guy 2 tables over bent over to pick up a dropped fork and his vest rode up to reveal his CCW. Nobody from the staff was around to notice and we were the only other people in that section.

Several comments.
1: I am a card carrying, dyed in the wool hoosier
2: I am ashamed gentelmen, ASHAMED, that I never bothered to peruse the statutes sufficiently to learn that I could indeed carry openly.
I've been carrying since I was 20 which is going on 20 years ago, for whatever reason I thought you had to keep it hid, or at least in my case anymore make some desultory effort to do so. Oddly as 40 gets nearer I realize that staying completely concealed 100% of the time has joined the rapidly growing list of things that I don't give a Rat's Ass about. Also I drive through Indy on my way too parts north, Chicago and Milwaukee at least twice or three times a month. Perhaps I can join you all in one of the OC dinners sometime!
A funny anecdote for you since you are fellow hoosiers and will no doubt get a kick out of it. I was sitting at the bar in the Holiday Inn in Champaign Il. As I nurse my beer and watch all the old people wander about trying to find their rooms I overhear a gun related conversation three stools down. I start paying attention and realize that one half of the conversation is a Glock factory Rep. The other half of the conversation takes off and I go sit next to the glock guy to pick his brain. As it turns out the guy is indeed a Glock rep, he sells to police departments and does transition training. He's a Wisconsin native and we talk about this and that mostly about the lamentable state of affairs in Illinois I finally ask him when the Wisconsinites are going to get their act together and get som CCW legislation in place. He says he doesn't know, the hoplophobes keep wetting their panties over the deal. We then discussed the state of affairs in Indiana which had him smiling and shaking his head. He commented on the fact that a lot of people seem to carry in Indiana and no one really acts like it's a big deal, just business as usual. I told him that overall we are hoosiers are a pretty levelheaded and pragmatic lot.

It would suck to be a factory rep for a gun manufacturer and have to do business in places like Illinois where you can't carry legally.

Nothing like a few functional samples inaccessible for use for defense, but very attractive to THIEVES with no effective means for protecting yourself while carrying/driving them around.

Ind. Law - DNR lifts ban on handguns in state parks

Yesterday a number of Indiana papers reported that handguns will no longer be banned in state parks.
Here is the Indianapolis Star report, written by Will Higgins. Some quotes:

It's now legal to carry a handgun in Indiana's state parks, a move seen as the latest victory for the gun lobby in Indiana.

In the past, you had to keep your piece locked in your car. But under a provisional rule change, announced Thursday by the Department of Natural Resources, licensed handgun owners can pack while birding, hiking, picnicking -- whatever. * * *

DNR Director Kyle Hupfer * * * said he came under no political pressure to change park handgun restrictions. "This is just (a regulation) I found and brought to the attention of the governor," he said. "We've been trying to slowly work our way through all aspects of the agency." * * *

In defending the move, Hupfer, who is rarely seen without a holstered pistol, said a gun could come in handy in the woods should a hiker happen upon people making methamphetamine, an illegal drug that can make its users antagonistic. The drug is often brewed in rural, out-of-the-way places.

"If my life or my wife's life was at risk," Hupfer said, "I want to be in a position to protect her and myself."

The DNR statement notes that by state law, the DNR director has authority to temporarily modify rules for the DNR. Such modifications are valid for a maximum of one year and can be renewed for an additional period not to exceed one year. In order for any DNR rule modification to become permanent, it must be approved by the NRC after successfully passing through a review process, including a public hearing. Once a rule becomes permanent, it has indefinite legal application but must undergo "sunset" evaluation every seven years.

:thumbsup:

My question (although moot for the moment) is does (did) the DNR have the authority to restrict carrying of firearms. The Indiana Code that establishes the DNR specifically states they can enact administrative rules to run the parks and protect the park assets. One could argue that by adopting a no guns policy in state parks that they have overstepped their state granted authority.

Also here our reserve police officers can carry as long as they possess a permit; so before they are in uniform they can carry outside of duty openly. On duty - new reserves can carry as long as they are certified and qualify on the range.

This evening around 1930hrs, Meijer in Highland... My wife and I open carried matching bi-tone XD9's w/dual mag holders.

I think only a few people noticed and no cared. A positive experience and my first OC in a major store in this type of area.

You don`t have " The Lifetime CCW" you have a lifetime license to carry a handgun no concealment required.

Hey everyone. Is there anyone from the south bend area on here? If so, just seeing if anyone wanted to go to the range sometime. Just bought my new glock 23 and want to spend some time at the range. Maybe learn a few things.
