I know delaware is an open carry state, yet from what I've read you can't opencarry in a few places. (Dover)

Does anyone know where the law defines "Concealed?" Can you print? buldge? "Briefly display?"




On a side note, has anyone here OC'd in Smyrna?

Different states have different rules on printing with a HG. You can look it up on USgunlaws.com (check the URL).

Problem is, if you print even if it's legal, you risk a 'concerned citizen' calling in a MWAG and getting proned out and even arrested (if the citizen lies and says you brandished, for ex.).

IMO, if you CC you should be very concealed, no flapping shirt, etc. You do not want someone knowing and possibly an 'anti-' calling you in and telling a story on you.

Yep - you should hide your gun well, never give anyone a clue that you are carrying. Wouldn't want to offend anyone or cause yourself a temporary inconvenience :rolleyes:

This is an open carry forum. We promote, defend and further the cause - why are you here?

Here's your $.02 back

Couldn't all these bad things and MWAG calls happen if I was open carrying?

I'm just more concerned with if I go into Dover and my gun prints or the barrel shows under my shirt line. Am I going to get the dogs called on me? (Dover is not OC, no state preemption.

Stay outta Dover or don't carry there. Too much MD influence in DE anyway... both cops and 'anti's'.
