    Is it legal to open-carry replica pistols in public or only at related events (civil war, etc.)

    This Is just my opinion and I’m not a lawyer . In no way do I condone doing this. But I would think that The carrying of the replica weapon would not be a crime because it is in reality not a weapon.  However I’m sure there are other possible crime’s such as Inducing panic. Or something of the sort, it really depends on who sees and how they perceive it that matters. Sometimes things seem completely harmless, but there are consequences that were not considered.

    The guns – pistols, rifles, or smoothbores – used at living-history events are real, live-firing guns. At least the ones I use are. Re-enactors are firing blanks. As for carrying them or any other gun in public, I would suggest you go by your state's gun carry laws.

    If you're talking about non-firing replicas, I would suggest not carrying them in public as others will consider you to be armed with a live-firing weapon, especially the police.

    If the state allows legal open carry of handguns then it is legal in public. If the state does not allow legal open carry of handguns then it is not legal in public. The fact that the pistol may be a replica pistol has nothing to do with it.

    Over 40 states allow for some kind of legal open carry.
