    As far as the Waffle House thing, I have never been in one that did not have this sign stuck on the wall inside.

    LEO's attemt to disarm me

    I know this has nothing to do with open carrying but I feel it is relevant enough to share. Left a restaurant in south Charlotte that serves alcohol and was concealed carrying. Pull into Harris Teeter to get some snacks and see blue lights. I have a tinted tag cover that defeats those...

    NC OC experience reports

    Let me give you some food for thought. First off Secondly I realize it is a comfort issue thing but I would never carry a firearm that I was not 100% confident in its' ability to not shoot without my input. You will most likely need your sidearm when you least expect it and are in the worst...

    SB 410, Constitutional Carry. Is it a coincidence?

    Is it a coincidence that Wabbit says he is done on this forum due to all the backlash he gets for continually bashing GRNC and GRNC announces the submission of SB 410 that would institute Constitutional Carry?

    Asked CMPD about open carry

    You are incorrect, It was GATTTOTP. Sitting here looking at the arrest sheet. There was also a resisting charge. I have also read the incident report and the charges are BS. Can't site because the last time I posted it I was chastised for posting someones personal info. P.S. I could have...

    Concealed Permit Question

    The cards come from Raleigh for Mecklenburg County. I know this as fact as the lady that administers the concealed carry permit for the county is a friend of mine. They submit the information to Raleigh who prints the cards in batches and returns them to the counties in batches. If they...

    Closest I have come to drawing.

    I am of the belief that you should never reach for a holstered weapon unless you are intending to draw and discharge that weapon to stop an aggressor. Police grip their pistols because they are trained to escalate a situation so they are always one level above the subject. When a law abiding...

    Colorado theater shooting, get ready for the storm.

    My thoughts go out to those affected by the shooting in Colorado but us as gun owners should get ready for the onslaught. Election year and the U.N. treaty being current expect the anti's to kick into high gear. I expect Hi-cap mag prices will skyrocket in anticipation of another "Brady Bill"...

    CricketDad I hope this is not your LGS. Saw the new reality TV series Combat Pawn about this store. What a joke. I like how they tactically open the store.
