    HB 746 for 2017

    You may or may not be aware of HB746 that is in comittee on Wednesday, May 31. This is the Constitutional Carry bill. While the changes incurred would mostly be centered around the removal of the CHP requirement, there are some things that would affect you as an OCer. The most noteworthy (I am...

    This may be covered in an old thread somewhere, but if anyone is not aware, Costco is completely anti-gun. I've been in the N Durham store a number of times, they aren't posted. Even super busy times, like right before Christmas, and always OCing. Well, today I was asked to put my pistol in...

    Polling Places

    Wondering if polling locations here in NC are gun free or restricted in any way. Of course, if a polling place is a school or gov't building, it is already prohibited. But what about places that are private, like say a ruritan club, etc. If the location isn't posted, are there any laws...

    Durham, NC City Ordinances

    There was a discussion in the 'NC OC Experience Reports' thread regarding ordinances that were in effect in the city of Durham. I wrote an email to the Durham city attorney, Patrick W. Baker, and expressed my concerns regarding some of the ordinances dealing with the carry of firearms in the...

    Durham Gun Registration Repealed - Flyer Updated

    In case you have not heard, the NC General Assembly successfully repealed Durham County's ridiculous Jim Crow holdover gun registration requirement. Senate Bill S226 was passed by the House yesterday and, if I am not mistaken, goes into immediate effect today - June 19, 2014. As such I have...

    Durham City Ordinance on Display and Possession

    I've been hearing about some kind of change to Durham's ordinance regarding open carry but never saw the ordinance in question, so I finally looked it up this morning. It looks like this was passed on April 15, 2013. From this, it pretty much says you can't open carry within the Durham city...

    Visited Williamsburg Again

    Hey Northern Neighbors --- My family and I spent another couple of days up in Williamsburg last week. We basically went to go to Busch Gardens to satiate the kid since we told her we'd take her. The day that we were at the park was pretty hot which was actually pretty good for us because there...

    OC on Motorcycle - Passing by Schools

    I OC while I ride to/from work. No matter what route I take I am guaranteed to pass by at least two schools. Actually, I could cut that down to one school but it would mean going about 10 to 15 minutes in a round-about route. I guess that's not horrible - just means more time on the bike. Still...

    Crazy Joe

    Sounds to me like Mr. Biden should be arguing for the deregulation of all firearms and advocating for everyone to be carrying. He can't really believe that, no matter how many cops are employed, they will ever be able to respond to a 911 rape call and get there to prevent it (as if a woman...

    Identification Please

    Does North Carolina have any laws requiring one to produce identification if demanded by a cop? (I'm not referring to a traffic stop) I'm thinking not, but thinking ain't knowing. I would assume that if one is detained or arrested they would produce ID, but again, I don't know... Thanks

    Carry in Restaurants

    I live in NC and have my NC CHP - which South Carolina recognizes. My family and I will be in Myrtle Beach this coming weekend. I am bringing my gun and will likely be CCing with a big old Hawaiian type shirt to cover her up. I understand that while in the vehicle I have to stow the gun in the...

    Dixie Gun Show - Raleigh

    The Dixie Gun show in Raleigh is coming up and we are planning on attending. We've never been to a gun show before and would appreciate some clarification on how things operate. I have my NC CHP, so there should be no need for background checks for pistols. How about rifles? If I buy 2 or more...

    Belt Vs Paddle Holster

    I search this forum section and came up with nothing... Let's say you have a favorite OWB holster - do you prefer it to be a paddle holster or a belt holster and why? Looking for experience with these two types and pros and cons of both. I've decided on a holster but not on the paddle/belt choice.

    HB 111 status?

    I was just going through the North Carolina General Assembly website to see how my representative voted on HB111 (carry in restaurants and parks) to give me an idea how he will likely vote on HB650. He voted no on the final reading but yes on some of the other readings with ammendments - which...
