In Idaho, I occasionally carry my 1911 openly in a black leather shoulder holster. I would like to do the same in Oregon, especially when driving through the state. I do not possess an Oregon CHL. According to ORS 166.250, "Firearms carried openly in belt holsters are not concealed within the meaning of this section." Does anyone have any experience open carrying in something other than a "belt holster," without a CHL (this would also, I imagine, encompass thigh rigs and IWB holsters), or can point me to relevant case law? I looked at State v. Fisher, but it doesn't really apply. Thanks in advance for any help!
