    OC vs CC in North Carolina - situational question

    I am getting my CCW in Greensboro NC in a few months (waiting on my DD214 which is required). I like to carry my Glock 17 in a Sticky Holster in my pocket when around the house and property. But the handle sticks out of my pants, a Glock 17 is pretty big even for cargo shorts. Would the handle showing be enough from a practical standpoint to be OC or is that CCW? I know the text of the NC law - I mean from a "practical" standpoint.

    In my opinion, I wouldn't carry a Glock 17, 19, 26,27, ect. in my pocket. I would invest in a Serpa holster and put it on my belt to wear. I would save the small 380s or whatever for the pocket when you get your CCP.

    Agree, belt holsters are not that expensive.
