    I have to say you got me curious with this one Ferret. This was during post reconstruction and most of what I found was debate and proposed legislation regarding concealment.

    With that said I bet you could stroll down the street with those puppies in clear view.

    Oh. It's for my zombie voodoo western I handwrote a while back and now I'm transcribing it to computer and all the issues I left unresearched just to get the story out are now rearing their undead heads.

    Ooh, sounds interesting.

    What is it with zombies right now? They are everywhere in film and media. The new 'it-thing' is the undead?

    I'm inclined to think they could, but an inclination isn't an answer. You could and probably should check with the smart people. On the other hand, it's your story, so if you want someone walking down the street with a sidearm, just go ahead and do it. I mean, look at this thread. We have ferrets spitting into spittoons, batteries shooting Chihuahua paws and a woman who never stops dancing.
