I recently drove to Tennessee, and to florida some time back.
Both times, i drove with my .45 in a shoulder holster under my left arm.
The wife's .38 either iwb right side, or ankle holster.
This way, i did not have to store the weapons when i got out of the car.
That, and the wife didn't have to exit.
The drive to Tennessee - i checked state laws.
Kentucky and Tennessee are open carry states, so i wore the shoulder rig over my shirt and jacket.
Quicker, easier access while seated in the car.
I had one moment at a rest stop in southern ohio-
Getting out of the car at a rest stop, a state trooper had pulled in... and saw me getting out and stopped his car.
I looked straight at him, saw him checking me out.
Went in to use restroom, came out got in my car and he was pulled over past my car on the right.
Had to let my dog out, so i had to move to the end of the rest stop.
Pulled out of my parking space, drove past him to the dog area, and re-parked.
Let my dog out and walked him a bit.
Trooper pulled his vehicle behind mine blocking it as i watched my dog, 100ft? away.
With my dog done, i started walking back to my car.
He pulled off, and stopped on the side of the entrance ramp to the highway.
Get in my car, and the wife asks me "what was that all about?"
Told her my guess is he was running our plates, must have seen i had a CHL.
He never left his car, turned on his lights... nothing.
