    I like stiring the pot a bit...lets see what you Oregon guys think here. Thinking about nanny Portland here...

    ORS 166.250(3) Firearms carried openly in belt holsters are not concealed within the meaning of this section.

    I have an old CZ52 (7.62X25mm) that I don't carry much because if shot without hearing protection none in the area would be able to hear for a week..it is really loud...but anyway..

    It came with an old holster that completely covers it, not even the butt shows...now ORS 166.250(3) says "openly in a holster"...do yo think Portland would consider that "openly"?

    Probably, in my opinion.

    I think there is no way to know, unless it has been interpreted before either by DA's or by courts. And I don't buy your statement regarding CZ52 :D

    /me has CZ52, Yugo M57 and 7.62x25 1911

    I think that even tho it's a holster.
    they would concider it concealed.
    i've talk to two people personally, that were "detained" while oc'ing in downtown "raped city" and informed that they do not condone oc'ing, and both (seperate occasions) were told to put their firearm in their vehicle. and they did not to see them out walking around with a firear on their hip. one of em did what he was told, cops moved on. the other guy was also escorted to his truck. where he handed his chl card to one of the cops, while he switched the pistol into an iwb holster. and put on in the small of his back. changed shirts. asked if they were done with his dl & chl. they handed them back. he said "good day gents" and he and his wife and kids headed back to the waterfront. the younger bike cop followed them around for about an hour he said, but finally left.
    he did say that from the time he handed them the chl and strapped on the pistol. they had a pretty bewildered looks on their faces.

    Ultimately one way to find out - put a banana into a closed holster, and walk around the PDX :D

    That would be great video! Unfortunately, I would suspect we would be seeing legislation outlawing the open carry of fruit. And God forbid you conceal that bananna. Next thing you know someone will get their eye mushed out.

    Your ears arn't as old as mine I guess...I wear ear plugs and muffs when I shoot that one. Technically, it is as loud as a .357 mag, which is one of the loudest.

    Cool gun with a cool cartridge! I'd love something modern chambered for a 7.62 x 25. Making boom boom. Maybe someday I'll get me one of those old hand cannons.

    I do have a nagant revolver with a covered holster that was common for WWII and wonder the same thing. I think FD15K is right on the money when he says we'll never know until someone spends the money to test it.

    Actually, as a test, I would be more inclined to use it as a cell phone holster.
