Seems a North Carolinian failed to make a complete stop at a stop sign today, and got pulled over by a local police officer. He handed the officer his driver's license, insurance verification and vehicle registration, plus his concealed handgun permit.
"Okay, Mr. Yates," the officer said, "I see you have a concealed-handgun permit. Are you carrying today?"
"Yes sir, I am."
"Well then, better tell me what you got."
Mr. Yates says, "Well, I got a Glock 22 on my right hip, a Glock 26, cross-carry on my left side and a Glock19 in the glove box. And, I've got a Ruger LCP in my right boot."
"Okay," the officer asked. "Anything else?"
"Yes sir, back in the trunk, there's an AR15 rifle and a Mossberg Persuader 12 gauge pump shotgun. That's about it."
"Mr.Yates, are you on your way to or from a gun range?"
“No Sir."
"Well then, what are you afraid of?"
"Not a damn thing Officer ...!"
“Well, er, uh, have a nice day, Sir”!

True story! I probably would have got some grief elsewhere, but the officer was a son of a couple that I went to high school with, about --? years ago! A Law Enforcemen Officer who does his job, which I am thankful for! "I'll tell them I saw you", he said. :cool:

North Carolina requires you to inform the Officer, correct?

Yes. North Carolina requires you to inform the Officer, but we were told in the concealed carry class if he "runs" your license plate and the vehicle is registered to you, he already knows you have a CCW permit.

I have In-Laws in NC. I hate the laws up there as I'm often visiting. I can't buy guns for my Father-In-Law due to the purchase program you guys have to deal with. Something about buying tickets (5 maximum a year) from the local Sheriff before you can purchase a firearm. And carrying it up there is always tricky as well. Here in GA I can carry in establishments that server food etc.., but I understand that I can't there if alcohol is served, etc.. Tough to not break the rules. :)

That's correct! You have to fill out an application for a purchase permit with the Sheriff's Office, they do a background check, and call you when the permits are ready. I don't know about the 5 maximum per year, but do know that you can purchase a maximum of 5 at one time. If you have a concealed carry permit
you don't need the purchase permit at all. Just show your carry permit to the dealer, he makes a copy of it, along with a photo ID. You could buy 5 a day if you could afford it. You do have to be pretty careful where you carry here. Any business can post a sign on the entrance door that prohibits firearms and you should not carry there, however there is a Bojangles Restaurant in the area with 2 entrances but only one has such a sign. Everyone I know who carries goes in the door without a sign. Even my CCW instructor!

I think NC is a little behind on where a CCW holder can be allowed to carry. I went to the mall last weekend while out and about and I made sure to enter through a main mall entrance and read the signs about rules/regulations...nothing about weapons, great. I head to the food court and there is a no weapons emblem by the bathrooms...odd.

Thank you for clarifying it for me. I remember now when I helped my In-laws get their CCW license, the permit to buy process went away. My Father In-Law actually just bought a G19 based on my suggestions for him and we are going to shoot when I go visit this weekend. :)

In texas do not have to tell officer you are armed.
But I tell my students it is a good idea to inform the officer you are armed.
Here in GA I am good friends with the guy that actually "wrote the manual" on how LEOs should deal with legally armed citizens (POST Course). He would dis-agree with you, suggesting to only alert (in a state that doesn't require it) if/when the firearm is going to become an issue. Glove box for insurance, asked to step out of the car while wearing it, etc..

my friend is also a frequent poster on here. :)

I had a person approach me while I was working and wanted to report his vehicle stolen. AZ is an open carry state and he had his 1911 on his hip in plan view. He stops about 20' from me and ask "Officer are you okay with this?" and points to his gun. I look at him, point to mine G35 and say, "So long you are okay with this."

I have had interactions (good) with LEOs all over the Southeast and this is typically the attitude. As long as you don't make it a problem, it's not a problem.

That's a good answer...

to agree with the other NC residents here, if you are a resident in NC in order to purchase a handgun you must go to you local (county) sheriffs office (courthouse in my case) and fill out a fairly simple application form and hand it over to who ever is on the other side of the glass. Usually within a week or so you will get a call saying you can pick up your permits (if you pass the check) and you can purchase up to 5 at a time at a cost of $5 a piece. I purchased 10 last year and no one spoke to me about a yearly limit. Also if you have a CCW permit then that is your unlimited purchase permit, no need to visit the sheriffs office. No need for a permit for long guns, which I think is the case in most places.
