Assuming you have a CHL and are carrying in your auto. If you are stopped by an leo and your weapon is not concealed....are you in violation of the law???

Thanks..I was asked by a friend who just got his CHL. And I couldn't answer him. I don't remember that they covered that when I got mine 7 years ago...although I do conceal in the car or not. I guess a good CHL instructor would be certain to cover it today.

It's not really a chl issue I think it's moreso covered under the castle law, either way though it must be concealed.

As long as you cannot see it easily without moving something in plain sight.

Garrett,

I keep a pistol (in a holster) in my driver's side door panel. Me left leg effectively covers the pistol, especially if I push my leg up against the door. I've been pulled over more than once, explained to the officer that I had a loaded handgun in the door panel, and have never had a problem.
