    New Guy

    Hi, I'm new here, just joined. I recently moved to Oriental, NC in Pamlico county and was wondering if it's okay to open carry in the county even though I'm only 18. http://www.opencarry.org/nc.html says the min. age is 18. Anyone know for sure?

    If you're legal to possess, you're legal to carry. I'd strongly encourage you read up on all the laws first though.

    Thanks guys, from what I understand, can't carry in gov't buildings, schools, funerals, parades, places that charge admission, places that sell/consume alcohol, and anywhere that there is a sign that says I can't. If I get a handgun 25DEC morning, I'm good to carry that whole day and from then on right? Is there any paper work I need for being under 21?

    only thing you need is to be an American citizen and be able to possess a firearm.... read up on the laws too... cops might give you a hard time cuz you look young and might not know the laws too... I think most cops like sheeple believe you must be 21 to carry

    BIG +1. Just a couple weeks ago I had this debate with a new-LEO friend of mine. The next day I researched everything, found the statutes, and sent him the info. Needless to say he was surprised and impressed and said that he'd pass the info along to his Sgt. So hopefully a few more LEOs will be better educated as to NC OC laws.

    Just to clarify, it's anywhere that alcohol is BOTH sold and consumed. You probably already know this, I just thought I'd clarify.

    And no, no paperwork, though you may encounter ignorant LEOs.

    Welcome to the board

    Read up on the open carry flyer that someone had done up for NC here and you may even want to carry a few folded with you in your back pocket to help educate the sheeple.
