RECIPROCITY

North Carolina Reciprocity

Effective August 14, 2003, North Carolina law allows residents of other states who have a Concealed Carry Handgun Permit issued by their state to carry concealed handguns in North Carolina if the person's state also grants the same privilege to North Carolinians. 

Remember that while traveling in other states, you are subject to the laws of that state so please be aware that the use of deadly force laws may be different as well as those places where carrying concealed is prohibited.  Consider contacting the Attorney General's Office of the state in which you will be traveling for the current laws of that state.

Here is links to all 50 state Attorney General's Offices listed below.

North Carolinians who have a concealed carry permit from North Carolina will be able to possess a concealed handgun while visiting states on the list but you will be subject to the laws of that state and you are responsible for educating yourself about those laws. Similarly, if you have a concealed carry permit from one of the states on this list, you will be able to possess a concealed handgun while you visit North Carolina. However, while you are in North Carolina you will be subject to all of North Carolina Concealed Handgun laws.

“This class was very informational. I think before citizens are able to purchase a firearm they should be required to take this class. By being in this class I was able to learn my rights as a firearm owning citizen.

The class was perfect, it included an instructional video and there was material available for hands on learning. The instructors were very involved and really cared that you were able to understand the materials covered in the classroom. The instructors used real life scenarios that helped class retain material.”
Rodney Reddick

“This class is a very good class. It help me learn a lot of stuff, like safely. I feel good about this class.”
Shane Howell

“This class is great for the understanding and confidence in using a handgun. The instruction of the class helps you determine when and what you need to do in case any situation arises. As far as things to do better for the class, I would say keep everything the same. All points were explained as needed and were given opportunity to ask and get questions answered.”
