I am a permit holder from another state and will be in Indiana in the future. Where and
how can I carry my handgun in your state?
As stated in the previous question, Indiana honors licenses issued by other states according to the
terms thereof. In other words, if you home state requires the weapon be concealed, then the
weapon must be concealed in Indiana. If you cannot carry on your person in your vehicle in
your home state, then do not do so in Indiana.
Indiana does not prohibit Indiana personal protection permit holders from carrying in an
establishment that serves or sells alcohol.
An Indiana personal protection permit holder may carry on their person in their vehicle. There is
currently no statute requiring a person to notify an officer that they are a permit holder and
carrying a weapon if they are stopped for a traffic offense; however it is recommended.
Indiana does prohibit the carrying of firearms in the secure area of an airport, school property,
and gaming boats. Many government buildings prohibit weapons. Look for signs and postings
at the entrance of public parks and property. Further information on these prohibitions is in the
FAQ question on where it is permissible to carry.
