    NC OC experience reports

    Now that is hard to read due to as you correctly state, convoluted loop on loop laws, but even in the convolution, I believe I am perfectly legal. 14-415.11 Scope of CHP says can't carry a concealed handgun where they serve alcohol 14-269.3 says can't carry a weapon into place that serves...

    Issue while voting

    Follow up: I received the recording of the 9-1-1 call, luckily I heard correct when he stated I did not threaten him. His very telling line was this "I want the police to come out because I want him to understand you can't do that, you can't challenge me like that." I also talked to the...

    I appreciate the feedback, perhaps you can elaborate on your post a bit for me as I am not sure I understand your message? To answer your original question, I do indeed have an NC CCW card issued by my county's sheriff (Mecklenburg). I assume you are posting the listing of statutes and...

    Issue while voting

    I too am not a lawyer, but I do read what lawyers say: Can I bring my gun with me to vote? It depends on where you vote. There’s nothing in Chapter 163 of the General Statutes (Elections and Election Laws) that prohibits bringing a firearm to a polling place. North Carolina is not unique in this...

    Is Arkansas really a Gold Star state?

    Manual safety on a Glock?

    Question popped into my mind as I have carried a Glock for a long time and started to wonder. If Glock made no changes to their internal safety's but also added a manual external safety, would you use the manual safety? If no, leads me to the next question of current guns with external...

    Practical Tactical Podcast adds to the division among gun owners - Starbucks

    Casey, the site owner, had stated it's time to Eat our Own because the Open Carriers ruined Starbucks (to be fair, seemed mainly targeting the long gun carriers). http://practicaltacticalpodcast.com/starbucks/ Lots of CC or don't carry at all, state laws be damned, attitudes from the...
