Open Carry When You have a CHL?

Open Carry is carrying a firearm unconcealed in Ohio. OC does not require a concealed handgun license, but the practice requires intimate knowledge of the law since there are places and situations where OC is prohibited but carrying concealed would be permitted. OC is also likely to attract attention. This forum is for discussion of OC, not for debating the pro's and con's or coordinating any type of protest events.

As I read the law, that would be perfectly legal - and in fact, I do it all the time.

"Thinking ahead, just where is your car parked during this hypothetical scenario.. There could b something to jam u up there."

I guess that would fall under the "You have to be aware of your surroundings" training.
