    ...and on case law.

    We have a Sticky thread on that in ST&T.

    The McCloskey case in St. Louis is all about this subject. The penalty in MO is severe.

    The term "brandish" is not used here.

    So, fat guys like me, have the added concern of hiding not only our belly, back fat, but trying to conceal a weapon and holster too. What I do is this: tee shirt tucked in, IWB holster/weapon strong side back hip area, plaid shirt in XXL size over it all. Possibly a light jacket too. The plaid pattern help hide any holster/weapon from obviously printing. If not plaid, then dark solid color is best. Good luck, I too am fully licensed w/ Missouri CCW, so have added responsibility to keep it covered, keep it safe! I've never felt the need to open carry. Why advertise?

    As this discussion has moved beyond Kansas, I will add that at least one state that allows licensed folks to carry openly or concealed, but does require that open carry be done in specified types of holsters*. This is exactly why the OP’s question was valid, as such fine points of a law are not always well-known.

    And, of course, some states do have other legal differences in open carry, and concealed carry.

    *Texas requires that openly-carried handguns be in belt or shoulder holsters, and, at the moment I am typing this, only folks with a License To Carry A Handgun can carry a handgun openly in Texas. (A permit-less carry bill, HB 1927, is working its way through the sausage factory, and, if successful, would become effective 01 September 2021.)

    It certainly isn't in Michigan, according to one of our most liberal governors, while she served as AG. Ask your AG for an opinion. We have no Constitutional carry, but have both OC and shall issue CC. Like most areas similar to ours, if open carrying, when you have a CPL and put a coat on, you are not in violation. Inversely, when concealed carrying with a shirt or coat over weapon, and you reach up to take something off a top shelf and your garment rides up, revealing your gun, you are still not in violation.
