Here in Indiana, allowing someone to see that you are carrying can be considered “brandishing” a weapon, and can get you in trouble.

That's what I mean by "menacing." But I fail to see how not wearing a coat or jacket over your holster means you're "brandishing" the weapon.

There is no open carry in Indiana.
Even with a permit, a weapon must be concealed.

It’s a minority of states that have open carry laws (arizona, alaska and some others, IIRC).

I agree, but I can tell you that people can and have been prosecuted for that. I think it stretches the definition (at least in my mind) of brandishing, but obviously some don’t.

Nonetheless, not causing alarm in restaurants and other places is why I keep my carry weapon concealed.
