I am a new handgun owner Congrats!
and do not have my CCW permit yet. I am curious about what NC law says about open carrying a loaded pistol in a vehicle. Without a CCP your weapon must remain in plain view. On the seat next to you, dashboard etc.
Also, are there places that are off limits to concealed carry that are lawful for open carry? The way the law is written, if a business has a no weapons posting then you may not conceal carry a weapon..... technically ok to OC. But most business owners don't know that. Chances are if they are "posted" they don't want you carrying any weapons on their property, just the criminals.
Last question: How long does it typically take for the Sheriff's office to issue a CCW permit in Forsyth county? I dunno. ^_^ LOL!
On their website it says it can take up to 90 days.
