NH law says it is okay to carry without a license as long as it isn't concealed.
The comment by the suuposed instructor mentions that the gun was unconcealed but he mentions the holster type.
Pelletier had a permit, so the legality of his caring the weapon, concealed or unconcealed, is not at issue. Rice is commenting on his judgment, not his (nonexistent) status as a criminal, since his actions were entirely legal. Rice also explains why he took issue with the holster type, and for the most part, I agree with him. Please see my post #30, above.
