open carry round 2

so the thread in general with the big open carry debate got me thinkin about where missouri stands on the issue. I did a lil lookin and am just kinda confused. As of now It doesnt effect me but I turn 18 in a month so I'd like to be up on my laws. It says

There is no minimum age to possess firearms under Missouri law, although federal law generally prohibits the possession of a handgun or handgun ammunition by anyone under the age of 18. 18 U.S.C. 922(x)(2), (3) and (5).

Open Carrying/Exposed Firearms

A person may not exhibit in an angry or threatening manner, and in the presence of one or more persons, any weapon readily capable of lethal use

Transportation of Firearms

Generally, any person who carries a concealed firearm without a valid "concealed carry endorsement" is criminally liable for the crime of unlawful use of weapons, a felony. Mo. Rev. Stat. 571.030. See the discussion of the endorsement under "Concealed Weapons Licensing Requirements" below. This prohibition does not apply if any of the following is true:

The firearm is not readily accessible;

The firearm is transported in a nonfunctioning state;

The firearm is unloaded, and ammunition for the firearm is not readily accessible;

The person is age 21 or older and is transporting a concealable firearm in the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle, so long as such concealable firearm is otherwise lawfully possessed;

In addition to the concealed firearm, the person is in possession of an exposed firearm for the lawful pursuit of game;

The person is in his or her dwelling unit or upon premises over which he or she has possession, authority or control; or

The person is traveling in a continuous journey peaceably through Missouri


could I just claim to be transporting it?
