    Few Questions - New to North Dakota.

    Hello people, I am new to ND, but have a few questions.

    I am a minor, but own a glock, and a springfield. Anyways, my questions:

    • Are Minors allowed to OC?
    • Is OC legal in ND?
    • Do any of you, OC in West Fargo/Fargo area?


    I've read the PDF file, but can't quite understand it, as it's been a long week, and everything. I might just be blind too, but help me out North Dakotans!

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Welcome to OCDO - rather than try to answer all of your questions plus the others that are sure to follow, first read the below links. There are some "sticky wickets" with your being a minor. I note that you did not say specifically what age.

    North Dakota is not a traditional open carry state. However, it is a shall-issue state that issues a carry permit that allows both open and concealed carry. Age to OC is 18yo, but a permit is required.

    That about.com link you posted says open carry is prohibited in ND. Whats up with that?

    I see numerous exceptions, but do not read that OC is prohibited in that link:

    On the first page, under the "Handguns" section

    "Permit to carry handguns? Yes - Concealed only."

    That doesn't say that OC is prohibited. It indicates erroneously that a permit is needed for only CC when in fact it is needed for either OC or CC.
    That misinformation is corrected by other references on this thread.

    According to North Dakota's Attorney General's official website, ND recognizes all state's permits that reciprocally recognize North Dakota's.

    Washington is listed in the accepted column.
