Open carry of a LOADED handgun is legal in Utah - with a permit
I could be wrong, as it has happened before........once. But, last I checked, the only permit to carry a firearm in Utah is the Concealed Firearm Permit.........which allows you to carry a loaded, concealed firearm. And while open carry is legal, the firearm must meet the legal definition of being unloaded.
I will have to double check that now, as I hate it when I stick my foot in my mouth
