    First, welcome to the forum. I'm here in Cabarrus county, and I carry everywhere I go "aside from the places off limits of course. Restaurants that serve alcohol, etc." I haven't had too many issues around here. I've been carrying in the area for almost a year now, and have had maybe 3 negative experiences with people, but they were quickly resolved "mostly be my just ignoring them eventually". No issues with LEOs. I eat at the subway near me here in Concord, and around lunch time, a lot of LEOs show up. A few of them will glance at my firearm, I think more out of curiosity than anything else, and then they go back to what they were doing. From what I can tell, this seems to be a pretty OC friendly area for the most part. Infact, one of the negative experiences I mentioned was at a taco bell, and before I could even reply to the person causing a fuss, the manager stepped in and defended what I was doing and said she was happy that I was there. Not sure where you're at here in Cabarrus, but the area has always been pretty friendly to me.

    That was the reason I started open carrying as well, it was a way to protect myself until I got my concealed permit. But then I just kept putting off getting my CHP, and OCing eventually just became a huge part of my life. You're lucky that your appointments next week, I still have until the beginning of May before mine. But even after I get my CHP, I'll still mostly OC just because it's become a part of who I am. It's just nice to have the option to cover up, and there are places that I'll need it, like SC.

    I open carry, but of course it's hard to conceal a .44 Remington with an 8 inch barrel. I open carried for the first time in China Grove yesterday with no incidents and just about always open carry in the Salisbury area. And I always open carry whenever I go to Rockwell.

    Would you might posting how long they tell you it's probably going to take? My appointment isn't until the 4th, so I'd like to get some general idea of how long after that I'll actually be able to get it lol.

    Welcome, bigguns76!

    Glad to have you here. I mix it up between CC and OC but tend to carry open more. I'm down by the speedway but I also go up to Salisbury to shoot at the rifle range.

    Be sure to check out the thread located at the top of the forum "Charlotte Area OC, Meet Greet, and Event Discussion". We used to do it on the first Saturday of each month, but a lot of us have gotten pretty busy with work lately. However, I'm going to try to set something up, so be just to check it out. Btw, welcome to OCDO!

    I have been out and about while OC at the Food Lion, Taco Bell, McDonald's and other places at Jake Alexander Boulevard and Mooresville Road -- usually when on my way to or from the Rowan county wildlife club.

    Welcome. I live in the NW part of Cabarrus county and (mostly) open carry whenever I'm not at work. No issues whatsoever... Multiple Walmarts, Sam's club, Harris Teeter, Food Lion, Aldi, gas stations, non-alcohol serving restaurants, etc... and I've not had any issues. Worst issue I've encountered was actually when I was (concealed) carrying in a Walmart (near Concord Mills) and asked for assistance with the ammo case... some woman who overheard my asking a manager for help, she just went off... ranting about she didn't know Walmart carried ammo, and it was a terrible thing... yada, yada, etc...
