    Uwharrie

    There was a guy Ocing at Uwharrie off road trails.

    Is it bad that i didn't go out of my way to tell him that he CAN NOT carry there unless its hunting season.( unless unless its a 12ga or a .22)(cause i could not catch up with him)

    I know that was the case before but I think now that the national parks carry law went into effect he is GTG.

    That's my thinking as well, can OP clarify the specifics here?

    Nevermind, as mentioned in another thread Uwharrie is a nation forest NOT a national park.

    Ah. As I pointed out in another thread, I disagree with the Commission's interpretation of the statutes from which they draw their authority. Given the rest of the language in the statute, I don't believe that a gun ban could be considered 'reasonable.'

    To the OP

    It is our duty to inform those who do not know the law... but at the same time we should know the laws before we go out and carry anywhere. I am a firm believer in the idea that if you don't know the rules you can't play the game.

    It's not our duty to inform, it's our duty to BE informed. Just as it was the guy in Uwharrie's duty to be informed. If you find yourself in a situation where you observe someone unknowingly breaking the law, it is certainly nice to inform them if it is reasonably practical to do so, but the responsibility belongs to the one engaging in the activity, not the observer.

    How about when the public comment period comes up next fall for the NCWRC we hammer them with emails asking to change it?

    Preble, folks will argue with you about it and might blow you off. And to be honest, although it's the law it seems to be enforced rather hit or miss. So it's worth a mention if you get the chance, but not worth an argument. Are you sure it was not a .22? I've kicked around the idea of getting a .22 conversion for my Glock for this and cheap shooting.

    Yeah i'm sure it was a full size, made sure i looked at the barrel size before I even thought about it.

    I was going to say something, but it was to late cause I was Riding the trails and he was watching everyone ride. and we got in a traffic jam and he got to far away....

    I fell kinda bad about it...but not really...

    man .22 are cheap you can almost buy a whole new .22 for what one of them Kits cost.
    I bought a GSG 1911 for like 300$
