I grew up in the wonderful state of Texas. Live in Louisiana now, but I sure do miss Texas some days. Of course Louisiana allows open carry for CCW holders, so exposure isn't a risk, but in Baton Rouge there are plenty of hoodlums and gangster wannabes whom I would rather not alert to my choice to carry. I don't want to be target number one for them should something happen and I don't want a hassle with local PD who sometimes have the attitude that they represent God directly. I'd rather not have a confrontation or even a conversation with them if I don't have to.

This thread has gotten me curious. I always assumed that if you had a CC permit, but the gun got accidentally and unintentionally exposed, it might make a bystander uncomfortable, but wasn't illegal. I am surprised to learn that in some states it is. I should check my state (NY, of all places).

I am also thinking about getting a broader multi-state license, like FL. Anyone have a resource that clarifies this for all states?

I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.

Might check with each state also. I moved from KT to FL and I was able to use my training certificate I earned in KY. Just had to pay for the new License.

FL might honer your NY training cert if it required range time,
