    Will be visiting again in July. Good to go for OC or CC on the beach or in my vehicle on the beach, correct? (If they let us drive anywhere on the beach)

    The only tricky part is avoiding the "State Gamelands" where you can't carry a pistol in the "off season". And there is a maddening patchwork of "state gamelands" throughout the entire OBX area...

    I was in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park last week and notice there are still "no firearms" signs at pretty much every trailhead, picnic area and campground. I was under the impression that all that had changed yet the signs are still up. We all no how "anal" NC is about carrying in the prescence of signs.

    Just want to make sure that the NATIONAL SEASHORE falls under NPS jurisdiction. We have a Virginia thread going that OC is still illegal in NATIONAL FORESTS.

    I had a post up here while they were taking public comments on the upcoming rule changes and taking suggestions for new ones. I'll get another one up next time it comes around. I went to the public hearing in Morganton and voiced my concern there as well. I think we got their attention this year, since they made a point to post a news release regarding the difference in Gamelands and NPS land.

    And the signs are wrong. Period. They can only post buildings or outdoor theaters where park service employees work. I OC'd by 2 rangers on the parkway, they noticed but said nothing.

    To get around the gamelands issue you can carry a .22 pistol with a barrel less than 7.5". Check page 55 of the hunting regs book. Or first page, on the right side under weapons. I know, I know it's a crappy defensive round.
