I was under the impression that even a cfp holder, if they were open carrying had to have the gun in the unloaded state as per utah law. but i just read on opencarry.org that a cfp holder could open carry loaded and it was mentioned on here also. If i open carry my xd .40 or my glock or my FN can i have a round in the chamber? Has this always been this way or was it changed recently. When i took my cfp class from impact guns in 06 i believe the instructor said if we open carried the gun could have rounds in the mag but none in the chamber. would like some clarity on this from you very knowledgeabe people since i may open carry sometime just for fun. I open carry in the mountains all the time but have not yet in town.
