    Buying beer?

    So I recently got my ccp but mainly OC. Can I buy beer at the walmart or food lion while open carrying? What about concealed?

    Unless the ones in your county are posted, you can even buy alcoholic beverages at the ABC store while carrying.

    welcome to the forum...

    ABC establishments are country entities not state.

    g22 and bc have given you good guidance...it takes practice getting out there OC'g to reduce the nervousness and remember to remain calm in case problems pop up from citizens or LE taking exception to your carry choice.

    since you stated you just completed your course, sorry your CHP instructor failed to provide a balanced course on the NC Laws of Deadly Force...

    here is remedial study for you if you would be interested...http://www.ncdoj.gov/getdoc/32344299...-gun-Laws.aspx

    A better option would be to learn to make your own beer!

    Of course you can buy beer. Lots of people pick up beer to consume responsibly.

    You are just not allowed to CC while consuming the alcohol...

    As I understand it, your ccw becomes void if you are intoxicated (.08%)

    Not sure there is a % BAC attached when CC...

    Basically, NO alcohol can be in your bloodstream unless you are on your own property.

    http://www.ncleg.net/EnactedLegislat...ticle_54B.html

    (c2) It shall be unlawful for a person, with or without a permit, to carry a concealed handgun while consuming alcohol or at any time while the person has remaining in the person's body any alcohol or in the person's blood a controlled substance previously consumed, but a person does not violate this condition if a controlled substance in the person's blood was lawfully obtained and taken in therapeutically appropriate amounts or if the person is on the person's own property.

    I know of no restrictions other than common sense with drinking and OC in NC. Not sure all LEOs know the law (or lack thereof) in this area...but, IANAL and IANAC.

    There is no BAC associated with CC. The law cited states "in the body". I believe, according to the punctuation, the "on the person's own property" applies to "substances" rather than alcohol. Meaning you can be legally under the influence of drugs on your own property, but must still be alcohol-free. But, again, IANAL, and I'm not going to be "that guy".

    NC has if policy if you blow anything you will have your CHP and probably your firearm taken.

    as DOJ proudly staates it is the only state where you can have your firearm taken and still drive home from the sobriety check point.

    As I understand, and unless the law has changed it is legal to OC and consume alcohol. While I have no doubt LE find excuses to take guns, it seems the only thing they could seize would be the CHP, and allow the driver to OC on his way if not drunk. Where ohhh where is PV on this one? Seems the coveted privilege card could actually cost someone there prized possession for a glass of wine.

    Yep. Just make sure your gun is NOT concealed, don't mention a CHP, blow in the tube (DO NOT DO A FIELD SOBRIETY TEST), and then drive on.

    This is a very interesting conundrum.
