    I'm going to NC next week for a conference. I have a TN permit and know they have reciprocity so I'm not worried about that. Seems like NC is an open carry state (much like VA, where I'm currently stationed in the military). I know in Va you can't carry concealed anywhere that alcohol is served for consumption, however you can open carry where alcohol is served. I know myself and my other 3 guys will likely eat dinner at places that serve alcohol. Can I open carry in these type places? I don't plan on going clubbing, but would like to sit down at an Outback Steakhouse and be allowed to carry. If I can't carry there period, I'll leave it in the truck, rather than go to jail. BTW I will be going to Jacksonvill, NC (near Camp LeJune). Any other odd laws I need to worry about?

    Carry it concealed and don't drink.

    Dang I wish I could be going to Jacksonville :) They have a good Lone Star Steakhouse there too just before you get to the mall on the right after you turn off Highway 24, the Outback is further down the street across Highway 17.

    CaptMac is telling you to commit a crime.

    It is illegal for ANY person to carry ANY gun into an establishment where alcohol is sold and consumed. 14-269 does not exempt CCW licensees.
