    Yes a county in NC. Doesn't matter if you have bought guns before in other states or counties. It remined me when I moved from SC to NC and the person said we don't recognize SC licenses here, you have to take the written test over. If I had known that I would have never bided on the gun.

    I’d be a criminal in your county.

    I had already paid for the gun and they wouldn't release it until I finished their qualifications and had the sheriffs signature. Either that or not get the gun. The auctioneer wasn't going to be in town but so long, it was an estate sale.

I've carried it to and from work every day for the last seven or eight years. I've never had to fire it at something other than a target and I hope I never do. I've seen up close what even a .38 slug will do to a human body, and if I can go through the rest of my life without some assh*le making me shoot him that would be great.

    I just looked up North Carolina gun laws. You can read them HERE

    North Carolina used to be a pretty good state. With the current laws, you couldn't make me move back there at gunpoint.

    Like I said above, I think it is a generational issue.

    I use to use them interchangeably. Now I don't. A handgun could be either.

    In your class do you teach people to fire a tight shot group or to fire in different body parts? Such as one in the upper chest and once in the abdomen (still using central mass, just one a bit high and the other a bit low).
