cite for open carry by non-resident?
« on: June 16, 2005, 09:24:37 am »

Hi.  I'm Travis Corcoran; this is my first post here.

I live in MA, strongly planning on moving to NH in the next few yrs.  I'm in the process of looking for communities and land right now.  So, on the topic of scouting trips...

I've seen references here to legal open carry in NH, even (it seems) for non-residents.  I'd like to read over the law before I cross the border with a pistol.

Any references?

Thanks in advance,

TJIC

Check out NH Laws at:

A non-resident license is cheap too $20 and only take around two weeks.

www.packing.org has lots of good info on concealed carry for most states

A NH non-resident license requires either a valid resident license from your home state, or a valid license from any other state. (There are special rules for Vermont residents, since they allow unlicensed concealed carry.)

But that's all about concealed carry, right? I believe in NH you don't need a permit, license, or any documentation of any kind to carry openly. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. ;)

Absolutely correct.  But I'd suggest a thorough understanding of RSA 159, and a willingness to suffer politely the inevitable lack of understanding you'll encounter.

You can open carry until you get into your car. You cannot carry a loaded firearm in the passenger area of the vehicle without a license. It has to be in the trunk. So if you open carry you've got to get it out of the trunk and then holster it.
