    I won't speak to NC law, but the rule of thumb is to follow the State law where you would carry. The only impact your home State has on the issue of OC is reciprocity if you have a license from that home State and one is needed to OC in the State you are visiting.

    The folks in the NC forum would best be able to handle the specific issue of NC law.

    Ask away. However the point about relying on Internet legal advice is a good one. That is why we routinely cite to authority. I double-check all legal advice I get here with primary sources, but the knowledge of the law here is vastly superior to any other layman's site.

    It would probably be best to ask in the NC thread, but since I'm hear I can help.

    Nothing is stopping you from OCing here. You can not carry where alcohol is sold and consumed (so called restaurant ban), you can not carry where signs of any kind are posted (on every entrance/exit to the building to be legal), and it must be in plain view when traveling in a vehicle (for conformity most say on the dash or passenger seat, on your hip is risky business if you get pulled)

    Hope that helps.
