    Open carry question

    Is it considered concealed in nc if only the grips are showing? Does the pistol have to be completely visible or just a part?

    Big Dog, i do not find any specific definition of 'concealed' after a review of 14-269.x; 14-415.10 - series NC statutes (http://www.ncleg.net/EnactedLegislat...ticle_54B.html) & 12 NCAC 09F .0101; as well as the NC AG's Firearms Laws guide (http://www.ncdoj.gov/getdoc/32344299...-gun-Laws.aspx).

    my frame of mind, if the grips are visible to JQPublic, it isn't concealed but remember, this is not legal advice..

    is there a specific instance for your frame of reference?

    Thanks and I have a glock 23 but once I was at the store and when I got out the car I stuck it in my pocket. My holster wasn't with me and my friend told me that's considered concealment if only the grips are showing. Had to ask cause a LEO wouldn't answer my question apparently.

    Then at least the cop didn't lie to you, as he is allowed to do - it is entirely legal to entrap.

    To be completely visible you would have to twirl your gun on your finger all the time.

    sorta/kinda like learning about sex from a playground setting...

    suggestion big dog...next time just put it on the seat next to you in a viable open carry modality. sticking a glock 23 w/o manual safety is risky towards an accidental discharge which could impact your experiencing what you learned on the playground.

    and no the nice LEs are clueless which is why you do not wish to put yourself out there where you might have to play twenty questions with a clueless, but nice LE.

    Thanks and when I do that I don't have a round chambered for that reason. I want to get a safety installed but I decided against it.
