I know you can purchase a handgun at age 18 through a private sale with a pistol purchase permit but do you have to wait until you are 21 to open carry it?

welcome to the forum and congratulations on your owning a firearm...

now it gets tricky...as WW stated know the laws and to assist in that and for your reading pleasure something from the AG on the firearm laws..

as is my custom, i also advocate individuals take an unbiased firearm course, from the NRA, like their basic pistol course...it is money well spent.

hopefully our paths will cross and you will enjoy the experiences of OC'g in the tarheel state.
