Postby carmen fovozzo » Tue Mar 23, 2021 2:43 pm

Like to verify this. What is the penalty if caught carrying concealed without a CHL in Ohio ?

It depends. If it is an unloaded firearm, it is an M1. If it is a loaded firearm or for which you have ammunition ready at hand, it is an F4 *unless* you are in one of the specific prohibited places that make it even worse.

I've got a friend that just went through this. It was an F4. He ended up in a diversion probation type of thing for 2 years. Supposedly, if he's a good boy, it all goes away.

Yes. Pay the fee, submit the application, and done. It's no different than renewing an unexpired license.

So a F4 charge is pretty much nothing ?

Don't think I'd phrase it quite that way, Carmen. Not everyone gets the diversion probation thing described by screwman above.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

I still run into guys all the time that Open Carry and don't have a CHL. The problem is they don't unload when they drive their vehicles. I've heard it all. "I am not getting a license for a right", "If I don't tell them they will never know I have it" "If I get pulled over and he finds it and asks for my license, I will just hand him my pocket constitution and say it's number 2"

I am like... I hear ya brother, and I feel that concealed carry, open carry, should be constitutional and allowed with no license, but if you catch a felony, you're not even going to be able to own a gun any more legally.

That said last year I did get pulled over and I Identified I was carrying. He went back to the car, and came back and asked for my CHL. I gave it to hime he looked at it and told me my CHL was expired. The ended up getting a supervisor who let me go and unloaded my gun and gave it back, because I was only 1 month expired. I went down the next day and renewed and didn't carry for 2 weeks until I got it back.

The really cool thing is they forgot all about the speeding ticket and the seat belt violation!
A .22 in your pocket is better than a .45 at home in your closet, but a 380 is better! Carry everyday everywhere you legally can. I carry a Taurus TCP 380 or a S&W 642 .38 Revolver, and always carry my tiny NAA .22LR Revolver in my sock.
