Since this is kinda along the lines, and the OP has apparently been satisfied in his answers, let me hijack this thread with a similar question.
I'm going to be coming down to NC (Duck area) from Va next week , and am going to be riding a motorcycle. I plan on OCing, as I do not have a CHP, but want to be sure this isn't going to cause issues while traveling.
This is a quote from the above second link:
While a weapon carried openly in an automobile would not be concealed, there are other problems specific to this method of carrying a weapon.
From this, it looks like open carry in a vehicle is legal, IE in a hip holster?
Edit: Also, anyone have any tips about the Duck area, IE Don't OC [here]?
