Post Where can i carry 
I know this has probably been asked before but the forum is so vast I can not find the answer. I was wondering if someone could point me to where I am allowed/not allowed to carry my weapon. I have looked all over the internet and have not found it.

As of July of 2012, this was the latest:
School property
School bus
School functions
Private schools
Head start
Preschool
The above is pre-empted by IC35-47-9-1 and allows you to carry PROVIDED you are transporting a person to or from a school function.

Commercial/ charter aircraft
Controlled access areas of airport
State fair (must lock in vehicle)
Shipping port controlled by the IPC
Riverboat casino

This may or may not be complete but is what I use.. Any doubts, call or ask ahead.. stashing your firearm in your car may not be the best idea.. rather leave it at home myself..

You can carry pretty much ANY where except Fed. Building, Schools, jails, courts, airports, casino's, etc.

Google Indiana Gun Owners .com and you'll have all of your questions answered.

It is also YOUR CHOICE of how to carry......concealed or open carry. NO law against either with a license!

With a License to Carry Handgun which is the "permit" that is issued in Indiana you can carry open or concealed just about anywhere. There are state laws against school buildings and property, and courthouses can legally ban weapons there. There are other places but those are the basics.

Indiana has complete state preemption of firearm laws and no political subdivision may make stricter laws than the state of Indiana. They also cannot make rules or enforce opinions regarding firearms on public property besides the before mentioned schools and courthouses. There are also public hospitals with security wards staffed by LEO 24/7 that are off limits but the only one I am aware of is Wishard in Indianapolis.

Private property including businesses can ask you to leave and they may post signs but signs by themselves do not carry weight of law in Indiana. In other words they cannot charge you with a crime for simply walking passed a sign that says "No Firearms" while you are carrying.

There are several forums devoted to firearms in the state of Indiana and I recommend you check them out to learn more as I cannot answer all of your questions in one short post.
