OKLAHOMA CITY -

Tuesday, Oklahoma joined 14 other states in becoming an "open carry" state.

But some have concerns it may affect their safety or the safety of their family.

News 9 went to a local gun range to talk about any concerns people may have with the new open carry law. The new law does not define what kind of holster you can use.

Gun advocates say this is no different than the concerns that cropped up when we became a conceal carry state.

"Best thing to do in my opinion is to take a class either come to a place like H&H or others that teach this program and actually watch, listen and learn," said Miles Hall, owner of H&H Gun Range. "The more you learn, the more you know, the safer you're going to be, the better you are going to be at carrying your gun. We spend most of our time training people how not to shoot."

Those classes are taking place all over the state. The new law takes effect on November 1st.
