    I was able to join up last night, DreQo. I am not familiar with the problem you speak of.

    "Only 23 members, huh? I'll join you and see how things go...I know how it's like to join a forum with a bunch of uneducated anti-oc gun owners. :?"

    Yeah, this is why I rarely post on USAcarry.com, good info there but I want more than a government permit for carry, I carry with my God given right.

    Hello, I'mone of the Site Adminsfrom CarolinaGunOwners.com. The site is pretty much a General Firearms website. I'm pretty young(23 yrs old)compared to some of you guys. My friend & I created the website to help educate & inform individuals about gun laws, self defence, & etc. The great thing about it isI'm also learning with everyone else.

    Personally I do not open carry... But I commend anyone that does. If I did... I think people would call the LE everyday. I would stick out like a soar thumb. You all have a lot of great open carry information on here... I prob just spent about 45 mins reading alot of posts.

    But I just wanted to dropin and say hello & hopefully I can bring something to this community one day.

    Chris M.

    By the way Chris, welcome to the board. I hope we can bring the rest of our OC brethren from the Carolinas to Carolinagunowners.

    Personally, I find it hard (with the holster I have) to OC in bad & cold weather. Other than that, you see my M&P close to my hip.

    My OC'ing consists mostly of my 1911 sticking out of my IWB when I take my suit coat off during the week.

    Trust me I would love to carry my pistol, but I would seriously stick out. I'm 6'2" 240lbs Half White/Half Asian... You really can't miss me. I'm going to wait until I get my concealed carry permit. My class is at the end of this month & I know its going to take awhile for the paper work to get done downtown. I know I wouldnt be breaking any laws but I have been harassed by to many LEO's already.

    Weeell just know that it's legal, and we do it all the time here in NC w/o incident. I'd hate for you to have to go without carrying any longer than you have to. I mean...even if you do get harassed, it's LEGAL lol.

    EDIT: And I still can't get registered on the site. 3-4 page loads and it stops loading all together :X.

    I have heard of 1 other guy say the same thing... It could be you have a Firewall up or something like a popup blocker. The guy that was having the same issue was using Internet Explorer. He said he used FireFox to register the account & then everything was fine.

    Chris, you have described me exactly (except that I am half Puerto Rican, half Cuban). I felt the same way until I got used to the idea that laws don't draw ethnic lines.

    Your right the laws do not draw ethnic lines.But there are alot of cases pending in Greensboro about Police officers being accused of bigotry & racism. The Greensboro Police is getting better but there has been a bunch of corruption charges that go all the way to the former Cheif of police.

    So do you think someLEO in my city is going to believeme a20-something "punk kid with a pistol"about the law(sincesome are cocky & think they know ever law in the books)or a somewhat informed law abiding citizen defendinghis person and property. I guess it all comes down to how that LEO interpretsthe law if you get arrested or asked to leave the property.

    I can say this... When I do get my concealed carry... I am going to carry my pistol in a somewhat open manner only because I'm tired of being looked at like a criminal everytime I go buy rnds for my AR15's/UPSc. Hopefully I can desensitize some of these liberal democrats that keep moving to our state.

    That sucks that you've had enough bad experiences to cause you to be afraid to exercise your rights. Keep an eye on the threads about getting together. Maybe chilling with some fellow open carriers will help ease your fears.

    Anyway I'm not having any firewall issues on my end, and since I'm not using my own computer I'm not going to download firefox. I'll keep trying once in a while.
