    New member in N.C.

    Hi, just wanted to make a newbie post, I live in Catawba county N.C., Im interested in OC. I have previously held a CHP in N.C. back in the 20th century, but allowed it to lapse, (stupidly) I think I was short on $$$ at the time. But I have recently went to a CHP class in Jan'13 an patiently awaiting my new CHP.

    So, when I was in my early 20's I did carry concealed religiously, my fav being a Glock 20, but I would also carry a Beretta 22lr (bobcat I believe) with a few extra mags, just in case. With that said, I have NEVER once carried a pistol in OC style, on my person. I have driven to ranges, etc etc with it on the passenger seat in the car of course. But I will be honest, I am a little apprehensive in carrying my pistol open on my belt in public.

    I believe my concern is because my lack of knowledge of OC R&R's in N.C., especially in these days and ages of everybody playing "tattle tale" and causing trouble for no real reason. So, I definitely will study OC legal practices in N.C. before I attempt it.

    Well, anyways, nice to be a member, and look forward to learning and sharing as much as possible!

    Uh, maybe go to the NC state thread, and do some reading? Just a thought, but welcome to OCDO anyway.

    Welcome to OCDO, yes you should take this thread to NC forums.

    I to once had a permit, because I never concealed and a new federal law, I let it lapse. I always OC when I carry, I hope you get your feet wet OCing. Before the concealed law the only way to carry was OC, and back then there were a lot more OCers. The trend is returning, and as far as I have seen accepted in most areas of NC. Just learn where you cannot carry and you should be fine, and can save a lot of money on the privilege card.

    Welcome to OCDO! I carry openly in Catawba and surrounds a few times a year, as my parents live in Catawba. I've never had any issues there.

    The wife and I just spent a couple of weeks in Catawba County with her sister and bro-in-law. Sure 'nuff pretty little ol' place y'all got down there. I just wish y'all could straighten out some of those roads.

    We were just off Campbell Road, near Maiden. Maybe you heard us shooting a couple of Sunday's ago.
