Well it depends greatly on the laws of your state and how jumpy your local D.A. is! In TN we do not have a CCW it is a HCP handgun carry permit. It doen not have to be concield for just that reason that way we aren't breaking the law if it is inadvertantly noticed. I would expect that if you act as though you are doing nothing wroung nothing will be said. I have even seen people (might have been LEO I have no idea) carry in walmart in a tac holster in plain view while grocery shopping! You will just have to make some phone calls to the local police and DA to find out.
