Thread: carrying expandible baton where pistols arent allowed.

    A car key with the big plastic at the key ring part. It's just about as great as a push knife...can do serious damage and its with you all the time. One hit is all u need.
    I worked 30 years with the nc state prison dept. and i can say that a lead pencil is deadly also along with a ink pen.

    Agreed. Why not carry a 3 or 4 D cell Mag lite. Nothing to explain.

I am looking for hard facts here, not opinions please. I have looked at the NC carry laws and batons aren't mentioned that I can find.
    I see you are from Ashville, you say you have a ccw. If your permit is from NC, then you DO NOT have a ccw, you have a CHP. Look at your permit, it will say it on your card. Concealed Handgun Permit. It permits you to carry a concealed handgun only. Now with that said, there is no laws against openly carrying weapons (TO MY KNOWLEDGE) there shouldnt be an issue with OCing a baton, but then most places that dont allow firearms dont allow any weapons....

    Your NC CCW only covers a pistol. You could carry the baton openly, but not concealed.

    Consult a lawyer and you will probably find batons are illegal. Most cities ban them under prohibited weapons-except by law enforcement and security personel.
