  3. I've lived in rural N.C. for more than 25 years, and I've seen 2 people OC, the last was 2 years ago. The most I've OC'ed is probably 3 times.

    A bit far from me but will keep you all in mind. Just moved in from SC, Charleston area and need to get out and meet some like minded individuals

    I use to open carry until I got my C.C.W.P. and I went to a convenient store one night it was about 11:30 pm and a wayne county officer looked at me and said you can carry a wepon but the guy working here can not have one. I said that is bs if I worked here I would have to have one on me. That is not right. I am just saying.

    What's a C.C.W.P.? Do you mean a CHP?

    I have a CHP but still OC

  9. Educating the law... Ok.. I recently pickup up my concealed permit. and when doing so I asked the deputy there in the office about open carry..
    He said, no permitted AT ALL IN NC..

    When I said that can't be right as I read the law and spoke to a DA.
    He proceeded to tell me that OC is an arrestable event...

    Then I asked about Bank carry as it is now legal..
    HE said NO IT IS NOT.
    I mentioned HB 650 and how it specifically stated it was legal.
    He laughed and said Well that really doesn't matter as I have never seen a bank that does NOT have a no firearms sign.

    Well...
    Looks like law enforcement just does not know the law!

  11. I have checked this out before. OC is legal in NC but full of caveats and is very risky. Statutes do not forbid OC, but NC has a statute about "going armed to the terror of the people". That is so vague that it can be used in nearly any situation. Example: Walk down the street doing OC, minding your own business, bothering no one. No one complains, all is well. A bedwetter happens by and sees your weapon, screams out "he's got a gun!" and starts a panic. Guess who gets arrested and charged? That 1 person's overreaction defines you as "armed to the terror of the people". At the least, if you OC, prepare to be stopped & questioned in most areas.

    The few times I have seen OC in NC were isolated circumstances. I used to see a few people OC while fishing at a lake or river, probably loaded with snake shot. I have seen a few store owners or gas station clerks OC every now and then. A store owner in Durham always has his .357 on his hip. A person on his own premises is much less likely to be bothered, as others can use his services or not, their choice. I saw one guy in a book store, carrying on his hip & not wearing any uniform, badge or police T shirt. He looked like he could easily be police or military but not identified.

    I only OC'd one time. I worked a job in a BAD neighborhood after a major theft at the property. I was alone much of the time & this was a place where people come up to bum money frequently. I had property owner's permission & stayed on the property, barely ventured on the street at all. I carried crossdraw, where it was not obvious to casual passersby but obvious to someone approaching me. A neighbor there came over to ask about work & was not disturbed at sight of my weapon.
