Also, reading handgunlaw.us, it seems that one cannot conceal a gun on your person when in a vehicle, even if you have a permit. The gun must always be in the open; is this correct?
I usually Open Carry in NC, but often conceal as well in person, or in the car. Sometimes I don't have the gun on my person but in a safepacker on the seat next to me.


North Carolina Concealed Carry Permit Information
You MAY open carry in a motor vehicle. However, localities may regulate the carrying of firearms under certain circumstances.

NC Department of Crime Control and Public Safety
Handguns in Vehicles​
It is unlawful to carry a concealed handgun in a vehicle unless the person has a North Carolina concealed carry permit. A person who is not a convicted felon may carry a handgun if not concealed. A handgun is concealed in a vehicle if it cannot be readily seen by a person approaching and if it is readily accessible. A handgun under the front seat or in an unlocked glove box or console is illegal. A handgun openly displayed or in a locked glove box, locked console, or in the trunk is lawful.

While I read it that way too, I don't believe that's so. I think it means a NC recognized conceal permit.

I will be asking federal LEOs who work in NC on Thursday when I am in training.

PS My CCW teacher in FL said anything with a latch or clasp is considered "locked". Obvoiusly that does not fly in all states.

That would depend on North Carolina's 'Reciprocity' with other states regarding CCW permits.

As a resident of Florida, my CCW is legal in NC and vice versa for NC permit holders. Although, while in NC, I am legally bound by the inherent and specific rules of their CCW permit, not just the rules of my FL CCW permit.
Great first post...Welcome!

I have a FL CCW and also have places in TN and NC as well so yes, I have to remember where I am as each state has different rules. You will also find some Indian reservations have even more restrictive rules too.
