    I have a concealed weapons license in Oklahoma but one thing I've never known for sure, is it legal to carry more than one gun at a time? I usually never would but there are a few times that I might like having more than one gun for different purposes. I have heard in some states you can carry more than one, and just don't know if OK is one of those states or not.

    Thanks in advance!

    We discussed this in class, and the answer I heard was "have a ball." There's no limitation written into the law.

    Of course, as with all such questions, you should really ask an attorney. It's your butt on the line, not mine.

    After checking out OK Statute ,Title 21 ,21-1271.1 to 21-1290.26, I find nothing to preclude the carrying of more than one firearm.
    As Flyboy suggested,go for it.

    I have read the law from the beginning to the end and there is no restriction as to how many arms you may carry as long as those arms are concealed. Remember, laws forbid things, not grant permission. The only reason we have concealed carry laws is because there is an underlying law forbidding the carrying of arms in the first place, and these concealed carry laws are simply "pay-the-fees-and-jump-through-the-hoops" exceptions to that underlying law.

If you wish to survive government, you must protect with jealous resolve all the powers that come with your rights - especially with the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Without the power of those arms, you will perish with that government - or at its hand. B.E. Wood

    You are right on.
    Now, how do we get Arkansas,Florida,Oklahoma,South Carolina andTexas(all former members of the Confederacy)except OK,to recognize and permit Open Carry?
    Even New Jersey allows OC ostensibly, although this is, of course, an immediate trip to the slammer.
    Thoughts?

    Oklahoma does have a .45 caliber limit. You can't carry anything larger than .45.

    But, many of the tribes sided with the confederacy. Also the south east part of our state is known as little Dixie because there were many migrants from the south east etc. I am from OK and I consider myself "Southern by the grace of God". My family were transplants from South Carolina via Texas and Missoura. :D

    All we need do is elect representatives who will abide the Constitution. It's that simple. Finding enough people to vote for such representatives is the hard part.

    One other option is to take a case before the Court and have all the laws forbidding the open carry of arms(read infringements upon our RKBA) removed.

    That should be enough in most cases.But still a another silly infringing law.A .454 Casull or .480 Ruger,may suit some folks just fine.

    A .454 dimension rounds down to .45. Since the law only states .45 and doesn't go beyond two decimal places, .454 is good to go.

    So, would .460 S&W be OK, since it uses a .45 caliber bullet? :D

    I'm actually planning to get one of the new five shot .480 Alaskans when they finally hit the market. I wasn't really planning on ever carrying it but I can imagine some special condition where I thought it would be fun. I had forgotten all about that stupid .45 cal rule. That would be a silly thing to go to jail over. Or to lose your CCW over.

    I've always wondered about the .45 caliber rule. Many of us (myself included) carry .45ACP, which is .451--technically, it's larger, and should be forbidden (law doesn't generally allow for rounding); the only thing I can think of is that the name of the caliber, not the actual diameter, counts here. .454 Casull should be right out.

    Here's my question, though: can I carry an AR pistol? .223 is definitely smaller than .45. What about an AK pistol? A T/C Contender in .308?

    I love corner cases.

    I have a trenchcoat.:neener:

    Mind you, I have no intention of actually doing it (for one thing, I don't have the guns), it just seemed like an interesting thought experiment. Picking stupid laws apart is a hobby.

    I've got an AMD65 AK pistol. I could put the issue 20 round mag in it and carry it legally with my CCW in OK. I could put a 30 round mag in it for that matter. But a five shot .480 revolver is illegal!!

    Yeah, I've already been face down in on a gravel road in the middle of nowhere. My crime was openly carrying a Glock 17 in a military flap holster while I went out for a walk down the rural country roads. I tried to reason with the deputy but it's hard to do face down in the gravel while the guy keeps pointing his Glock at your head (finger on trigger) and saying he's going to shoot you if you move a muscle!

    I told him I've never even had a traffic ticket and I'm a US Army vet but he didn't care. And I tried to say that the law clearly says open carry is legal for "any other purpose not prohibited by law" but he didn't care.

    I just wish they had video cameras in their cars.
