    I also posted this in the NC forum but thought maybe someone here could help me as well.

    Ok I was told tonight I will be going to the Camp Lajuan area in the morning to fix one of our broken A/C. I'll taking my own truck, stayingwith a fellow co worker at his folks (they are OK with me having my gun), and will be working at a small airport in the area. The fix will probably have us there till Sunday at least.

    I'd like to take my gun and OC while there when and where I can. Thats why I'm posting this. I don't know the NC laws for OC and didn't really find anything of help when looking. Can someone please give a short sweet and to the point break down for OCing in NC. I'll be hitting the road about 10am so I'll be checking back here prior probably several times.

    Thanks in advance.

    What I get from that is it can vary on a locality to locality basis.

    I can't find anything right off the bat on their website that would point to a law/code area on the website to find the information. Perhaps contact the police department?

    While it is a year old and some things could have changed since then, I posted a thread with links to some NC laws I received from the NC state police a year ago. The URL is:

    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum41/3387.html

    Additionally, I do recommend taking some time to browse the first 7 - 10 pages of the NC forum. There are numerous threads regarding NC carry laws. Of course, I don't advocate taking these forum discussions as gospel. You'll want to back up any claims with cites and case law.

    Well I wasn't able to check this while I was gone so I went with what I did know and OC'd to my coworkers folks place. I didn't take it to the Jacksonville airport with me. I couldn't have it with me anyway while working. So It was too and from only.

    I did stop for gas at a Shell both too and from. Don't know the name of the towns but I had no problem from anyone so that was nice. I will brush up on NC gun laws for sure so I know when I make my next trip south.

    Thanks for the info eventhough Ididn't get it till after the fact.

    My info is dated but it does include code cites that should put you in the ball park as it were.

    TRANSPORTING WEAPONS

    Given this general prohibition of carrying concealed weapons, individuals must be ever vigilant to ensure that their particular situation cannot be construed as concealing a weapon either on or about them without being properly authorized to do so with a valid North Carolina concealed handgun permit. Therefore, the person's accessibility to the weapon is of prime importance. It is for these reasons, that when transporting a weapon in a vehicle, even greater care must be exercised to ensure that the weapon is not concealed and within the ready access to an occupant of the vehicle. North Carolina law does not specifically address how to transport a weapon in an automobile. Therefore, the central question becomes: when is the weapon concealed and readily accessible to an occupant of the automobile? Obviously, a weapon would be concealed and readily accessible, and therefore in violation of our law, if it were placed in such areas of a vehicle as, under the seat of the automobile; in a bag in the back seat; in an unlocked glove compartment; or in some other manner is covered or hidden within the easy reach of an occupant of the vehicle. A previous opinion from this office was that a weapon would not be concealed if it were placed in a locked glove compartment, unless the key to the glove compartment was in the lock and the person was in close proximity and had ready access to it. A concern with this mode of transportation however is that it is quite susceptible to different interpretations, based on the various factors involved. Therefore, this may not be the most legally defensible method of transporting a weapon, and is discouraged.

    While a weapon carried openly in an automobile would not be concealed, there are other problems attendant to this method of carrying a weapon. The principal drawback, of course, is in the event of a person being stopped by a law enforcement official, the officer may not readily know that person's purpose and intent for carrying a weapon. As such, it is imperative that a person immediately notify an officer of the presence of any weapon in the automobile, for the officer's and the vehicle's occupants' safety. Another obvious drawback, is that a valuable weapon may be in plain view for potential thieves to see. The prohibition to carrying concealed weapons applies not only to handguns and other weapons commonly thought of as being easily hidden, but also to "long guns" as well. Therefore, shotguns and rifles concealed behind the seat of pickup trucks, and elsewhere in other vehicles, could similarly violate our law.

    As to those vehicles with no easily discernible trunk area, for example vans, the question turns on a factual determination of when the weapon is within ready and easy access to an occupant of the vehicle. If the weapon is concealed near, in close proximity to, or within the convenient control and access of an occupant, which would allow him to use the weapon quickly, then a fair probability exists that the occupant is in violation of the law. Therefore, care must be exercised by any occupant of a vehicle to ensure that the weapons are securely locked away in as remote an area as possible in relation to the passenger compartment of the vehicle. It is important to emphasize that these prohibitions apply to passengers, as well as the driver of a vehicle.

    Most likely but that is an assumption on my part. We know what happens when one assumes.

    Lajuan... isn't that the name of the teenage girl on King of the Hill?

    Good point they can't swim in water over their ankles and the Coast Guard don't go in water over their knees and well the Air Force they just take up space. Plus we all know they ARMY Ain't Ready for Marines Yet.
