I've been seeing a lot of posts on unloaded open carry but I was wondering if it is ever okay to open carry a loaded weapon. I have been carrying my handgun loaded in a holster on my side when I go hiking in the mountains because I read you can carry a loaded weapon in unincorporated areas. I have never had any problems but I am wondering if this is something that could cause me any legal problems.

I believe the idea is, "If you can legally shoot there, then you can legally carry a loaded gun." please someone correct me if I'm wrong.

because otherwise, nobody'd be able to shoot anywhere if it was illegal to carry a loaded firearm.

But the thing with UOC is that it's legal to do anywhere a firearm isn't prohibited. Like the streets.

Haha.

Although Calguns is normally a good source of information in many cases, open carry is not it. I believe it would be better to get the information from the site pullnshoot25 pointed out or go to opencarry.org

They are focused on OC and therefore know the rules a might better and you can avoid the "don't OC you stupid bastard!" that comes with asking on this site.
