Can someone point me to the good thread that let me know how legal I am if I carry open or concealed and in what areas of West Virginia are off limits.

I travel through West Virginia to and from Michigan(home)and Virginia.

I usually travel I-77 and hardly get out of the car but to stretch and eat, sometimes stay over a night.

In my state, if a CPL(CHL) holder is carrying a registered firearm they can open carry into most of the Pistol Free Zones that our laws designate illegal to conceal pistols in.

Anything similar to that in WV?
No. Nothing in the handful of places off limits in WV; both OC and CC are prohibited in those places.
