Should I open carry?
It is our opinion that openly carrying a firearm should be avoided when possible. There have recently been reports of Handgun License holders being robbed of their guns because they were openly carrying. Carrying concealed allows an important tactical advantage and mitigates the risk of a handgun licensee becoming the first victim in a crime.
The benefit of having open carry is that we are no longer breaking the law if our concealed handgun becomes visible when moving or "prints" through our clothes.
Do I qualify for a Handgun License Exemption?
OSDA Classes offers exemptions for those who have the proper documentation.
If you qualify for an exemptions you are only exempt from the shooting portion of the course. You are still required to take the classroom portion to learn about Oklahoma law related to the use of force and handgun safety.
You may qualify for an exemption if one of the following applies to you:
- You are an active CLEET certified law enforcement officer or armed security guard
- You currently on active military duty, regular military reserve duty, or National Guard duty.
- You have been honorably discharged from active military duty, regular military reserve duty, or National Guard duty within the last 20 years.
