Thread: Open Carrying at 21
I am a new member and a new gun owner who would prefer to open carry however I have heard some negative feedback about younger people open carrying. I would just like to know if their are some others here in the charlotte area who are my age and open carry and how they have been treated. Also if you have any tips on it you could share with me.
Looks as if they don't want anyone to see that fine print.
I can see why it gets overlooked.
Thanks for the info I decided to give it a go and went to tire kingdom and a few places a few looks but no big problem hope it continues.
I'll be moving down there after christmas, across the street from UNCC, and you bet anytime I'm not on campus I'll be open carrying
where i'm legally allowed to of course
I'm 21, been OC'ing for a few months now everywhere I go. No negative experiences yet
knowing that legal OC age in NC is 18. there should be no problems with OC at 21
but know that there are people who will give you a hard time from 18 to 80. you might be harassed by civilians and LEOs alike,
but know your laws. know your surroundings. learn how to handle both. if you are some kind hot head you shouldn't be carrying. keep a good attitude and be friendly, fair, but firm in what you do and believe
Luke 22:36 ; 36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
"guns are like a Parachute, if you don't have one when you need it, you will not need one again"
i you call a CHP a CCW then you are really stupid. period.
I say, If your open carrying, EXPECT to be stopped by citizens and LEO's for questions or just plain curiosity. If you don't know how to handle conversations with strangers or are very shy, OC might not be for you. But if you are well versed, know the laws in your area, and can have a mature conversation with the other party, then you are golden.
Always good to play scenarios over in your head and try and practice what you would say if you are confronted by law enforcement, or a very angry and/or Anti-Gun citizen.
Age makes no difference when Carrying, it's the mentality. I've met some 30 and 40 year old who are so immature i can't stand to be around them. Then I've also met some like-minded people around my age that are very mature and experienced for their age. So play yours cards right, BE VERY AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS, and you should have no real problems at all!
