    OC is legal including in a vehicle but it must be visable. Believe it or not but you're expected to place your forearms on the dash board to meet this requirement. Having in a holster on the hip is considered concealed.

    Like I said I would go with Arizona. They even except a hunter safety card as proof of training. Quickest abd easiest.

    Firearms on the dashboard? That means it's inevitably pointing at someone no matter how it's angled. In the summer the sun would be frying it. And I'm sure its an invitation to be pulled over and questioned on sight. Seems better to have a permit for sure.

    I did know about the being in plain sight part. I was interested if there are restriction like churches, schools, bars and the like. Just saying oc is legal leaves a person hanging out there. Kind of like saying oc is legal in Pennsylvania and not pointing out the exceptions.
    Some people just plain suck.
    If you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough.

    The only restrictions in Delaware are for schools, and school zones. You must have your CCW permit to carry there. Which makes it very difficult to navigate the state while avoiding school zones.

    And the normal areas not open to any legal person carrying. Such as, Police stations, jails, courthouses, and federal buildings we also cannot carry in state parks or on state wildlife areas. Other than those places you are pretty good. You can carry into bars, just donít drink or youíll get in trouble.

    Also, you can have the weapon on the passenger seat, most people secure it to the seatbelt so it doesnít fly around. I am a resident with a CCW so I carry at 3 oíclock when seated, technically concealed.

    I frequently open carry around the state and have had no issues with law enforcement, or anyone for that matter. They are pretty aware that Delaware is an open carry state, although Iíve heard Wilmington PD is slow on the understanding. Most people donít even notice when a person is carrying a firearm.

    No gun signs have no force of law, you just have to leave if asked, or you are trespassing.
