    Default Concealed or not

    What exactly are the rules in the DR regarding carrying a pistola?
    Is there distinction between concealed and not?
    Thanks

    There are permits to possess and to carry, Law 36 does not distinguish between the two as per a quick browsed through it.

    The law states that you must carry concealed if you have a carry permit. It states right on the license that if the weapon is in view it can be confiscated.

    It was a thread I started regarding why someone would want to openly carry a firearm, directed at a post by a member
    who carried a weapon openly at "home" I was assuming the USA I asked why anyone would want to carry a pistol on his
    hip and varying opinions were posted, nothing of any value regarding actual laws

    Read Law 36, if that if not of any values, its up to you.

    Eliminating all the BS responses in the thread in Off-Topic and getting right to the point:


    Open carry by the public is illegal in the D.R.

    On the back of the permit it states:

    Advertencia: Licencia vencida o exhibir el arma, se penaliza con la incautacion
    Warning: Expired license or displaying the weapon is punishable by the seizure

    Below is my answer on the same topic/thread.

    "I carry a gun as per duty at work, I carry a gun as citizen because I want to, its my right in the USA and am legally able to conceal it at will. I purchased my gun and the last thing I had on my mind when I did or whenever I open or conceal carry is "what others might think of me.""

    Totally irrelevant to the purpose of gun ownership.

    In essense, what anybody would think of me, my firearm and the way I decide to carry it is totally extraneous to the fact.
