    Step 1: Install holster on belt.

    Step 2: Place weapon into holster.

    Step 3: Enjoy your new found freedom!

    Step -1: Buy a belt.

    Step 0: Buy a holster.

    If you need to purchase a handgun, you will need to go to the local sheriff's office and apply for the pistol purchase permits.
    The North Carolina forum has a sticky thread posted with a flyer that is informative can be printed.
    Someone more knowledgeable than me will be along shortly to answer your questions.
    Welcome to NC.

    Oh, heck! Everybody else seems to have forgotten the important things -

    1 - Welcome to Free America

    2 - you can have 30caliberbulletclip magazines that hold more than seven rounds

    3 - OC is pretty much "Just Do it" but without the swoosh. Do check the links given for the places where your gun is not welcome.

    4 - Stay out of the BBQ comparison discussions. If you go there you will be sucked into sugar in cornbread/no sugar in cornbread via the sweet tea/unsweet tea battles (which are further divided into enough sugar to rot your teeth/just enough sugar to be pleasant)

    stay safe.

    Unless he escaped from a NY prison, he's OK.

    He does not say he did .. I would assume he is not.

    Nemzfredom, welcome to the tarheel state...

    since nobody else has provided reading material, allow me:

    NC Attorney General's firearm overview of good reading to provide an oversight of current climate in the state. section III D O/A page 22 covers transportation of weapons in vehicles.

    http://www.ncdoj.gov/getdoc/32344299...-gun-Laws.aspx

    if you are really bored, here is the link to the NC statutes ~ excellent search in upper right side:

    http://www.ncleg.net/gascripts/statutes/statutes.asp

    notice in both areas there is no discussion about OC'g do or don't provisions. however, the little handout at the top of our sub-forum some excellent information.

    if you have lurked out here long enough, you know to not listen to nor take advice from anybody, especially LE et al., but your attorney...

    one other quirk about NC ~ as mentioned IAW NC statute 14-402-406 (http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/EnactedL...rticle_52A.pdf) you must get a PPP from the county sheriff's office $5/per and you can get 5 at a time which are good for 5 years. theoretically, the FFL is exempt from running through the FBI's NICS background check. (however, some FFLs still run the NICS ck if the PPP is older than a year to assure you haven't done something bad and lost your opportunity to purchase a firearm. some citizens do not wish to keep a wad of PPPs in their pockets so they get their concealed handgun permit, AKA CHP which also exempts the FFL from running a NICS bkgnd check on you. again, some FFLs do insist on running the ck if the buyer's CHP is older than a year.

    browse this sub-forum to your heart's content as i think you will discern the majority of the firearm queries pertaining to NC have been sliced, diced, chewed, regurgitation, and argued to dust about till i believe we have broken scientific laws as we have succeeded in changing the form of matter till it disappears.

    again sugg, welcome to the model OC'g state...

    (while not stepping directly into the fracas but throwing the grenade w/o pulling the pin ~ NC's BBQ is sauced with vinegar and other strange commodities and the state's drink of choice, sickening sweet tea, sucks)

    If you're not ashamed to own it, don't be ashamed to open carry it.

    Welcome aboard George! Presuming you are of legal age and not otherwise restricted, you may open carry w/o a permit in many places.

    You will want to become familiar with the nuances of the laws and where self-defense tools are legal.
    Start with the stickies on the NC sub-forum and work your way down the list. Best wishes.

    Here in NC he will have a long wait for a CHP, most counties accept applications by appointment. That can take several months, and then the CHP itself after application has been delivered and the dept receives all the information takes around 5 weeks.

    george welcome, but, uh, you do know y'al are on an open carry forum, and as such, after 2.5 years being in wake county, i am sure you know you do not need a CHPermit to open carry in the TarHeel state?

    that said, if you intend to OC instead of wasting your precious money on a CHP, run down to the wake county firing range in apex and sign up for one of their basic pistol classes which should give you more than enough background to purchase your firearm after you get a PPP from the Wake county sheriff's office IAW NC statutes 14-402-402.

    wake county range: http://www.wakegov.com/sheriff/servi...s/default.aspx

    your kind attention is directed to post 18 of this thread for the AG's and NC statute link.

    again welcome and look forward to your active participation in the forums.
