    Default Easy Open Carry Question

    Hey all-
    I've been open carrying for a few months now, and have a quick question. Can I "partially" open carry? What I mean is, can I have a belt holster, on my side, and have a unzipped sweatshirt, that will allow the firearm to be partially exposed? I've always had it completely exposed, or completely concealed. Is it okay to have it "partially" exposed? (I have a LTCF).
    Thanks for any input!

    From a legal standpoint, with your LTCF, you may carry in any degree of open or concealed you choose. Completely concealed, partially concealed, not concealed at all

    You can also hang pink handlebar tassels on it as well...just in case you were wondering

    PA is pretty much a Casual Carry state. Since OC is legal without a license(except cars and Philly), and the necessity of a LTCF is for when you do conceal it or carry in a car - any variation of open or concealed, whether partially covered or not is completely legal if you have a LTCF.

    If you have a LTCF, you may carry however you may please in whatever styles tickle your fancy: Openly, concealed, duct-taped to your forehead, Mall-Cop tacticool, Wyatt Earp cowboy, Rambo, etc.

    I just expelled my Diet Pepsi out of my nose. That is just to much. I was not expecting that one. Very good.
