    For those of us that are not allowed Open Carry at all, can you open carry your magazines?

    I know it would seem like backwards thinking if you wanted the element of surprise etc etc.

    Just wondering.

    (P.S. Im in Texas if that makes a difference.)

    There's no texas law about "open carrying" ammo, so you should be okay.

    asking for trouble in a state where open carry is prohibited.

    You probably can, but why, it would be a flag to any Lawman, that person is armed.

    In Pa, It would probably get you for "brandishing"

    Why would you want to?

    I think it is a decent question.

    How about this;

    In states that require carry to be concealed, if you move someway and your shirt rides up over your reload, but your firearm is still concealed, can you get tagged as if your firearm were visible (i.e. brandishing, etc.) ?

    NVM, didn't read and or comprehend, Texas law actually doesn't address ammo as it pertains to CC.

    My mag carrier is a covered model... looks kinda like one of those nylon Leatherman holsters. Bought it for the very reasons stated here (i.e., brandishing).

    It's an interesting question. I'm in a "no-carry-at-all-you-gun-nut-psychopath" state, but I've wondered if carrying ammo with no gun is illegal. Just have a couple of loaded mags on your belt and that's it.

    Of course, it would be pointless except to provoke a reaction.

    It'd be illegal in Washington DC, where "possession of unregistered ammunition" is a misdemeanor.

    UNREGISTERED AMMUNITION???????????????:cuss::banghead::cuss::banghead::cuss::banghead:...***?!?!?

    One must register ammo in DC? That is one despotic municipality.

    Write your AG for clarification.
