    OC in wilmington

    Happy holidays to everyone, New to the forum.

    I bought a pistol from a private owner and I have the bill of sale. Do I need to get that notarized? I recently got my Purchase Permit, just to have. I'm afraid that i'll get profiled and harassed. I been reading up the laws so my knowledge is limited.

    There is no registration in NC - you just bought and now own a gun

    Ok thanks! And transporting it? I know it has to be visible, someone told me cops might try to get you if it's on your seat and not the dash. I figure the trunk would less of a hassle

    It should be fine on your seat as long as it is not covered by any object. The problem I have with putting it on the seat is if you stop suddenly, then the firearm goes flying onto the floor. Might damage the gun, and may possibly be considered concealed on the floorboard or if it slides under the seat.

    If my sidearm is not on me I will use the gun belt to fasten the gun and holster to the seat where it can be clearly seen.

    Just put it in a holster on your side in the open. "Open carry".

    Click here:

    and download the OC flyer. Read it. Print some out and hand them out when people ask you about OCing your pistol.

    There is no restriction on caliber - if you want to carry a 500 S&W Magnum, go right ahead.

    No restriction as to caliber.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_North_Carolina

    Chapel Hill does have an ordinance as to minimum physical size:

    http://Sec. 11-134. - Prohibition on display of small handguns.
    (a) No person shall display, on any street, sidewalk, alley or other public property any handgun which is easily and ordinarily carried concealed.

    (b) For purposes of this article, the term "handgun which is easily and ordinarily carried concealed" shall mean any handgun or other firearm with an overall length of less than six (6) inches; provided, however, that in the case of a handgun or firearm that does not have a handgrip, this term shall mean any such handgun or firearm with an overall length of less than eight (8) inches.

    (c) For purposes of this article, the length of a handgun shall be determined as follows:
    (1) As the length of a line drawn from the tip of the barrel of the handgun along the length of the barrel to the point where that line intersects with a perpendicular line drawn up from the point on the back of the handgrip farthest from the tip of the barrel; or,

    (2) If the length of the handgun measured along the barrel extends back beyond the point where the lines described in (c)(1) above intersect, the length shall be determined by the length of the gun measured straight back from the tip of the barrel for the full length of the gun; or

    (3) If the handgun does not have a handgrip, the length shall be determined by measuring the overall length of the weapon by a straight line connecting the tip of the barrel to the point farthest away from the tip of the barrel.

    (d) This section shall not apply to persons authorized by state or federal law to carry firearms in the performance of their duties. (Ord. No. 93-11-22/O-1, 1)

    If you did not have the PPP prior to buying the handgun, you were illegal. NCGS 14-402.

    Notarizing after the fact is a no-go; a notary must see a signature being made to notarize it.

    Follow dmatting's advice.

    Stick around, pay attention, ask questions, confirm the answers yourself with the general statutes. The advantage of this forum is the requirement to post cites (where information was obtained).
