    I just heard from my local gun dealer that the North Carolina legislature has passed a law that now allows CCW permit holders to purchase handguns without a handgun purchase permit. I've looked on Packing.org, but didn't see anything about it. Has anyone else heard this?

    As I understand it, the legislature has indeed passed the legislation and is awaiting the signature of our idiot governor.

    MC - Take a look at the following link. It's passed the legislature with flying colors and is awaiting the Governor's signature. I however don't believe he will sign it and will instead let it become law without his signature.

    I've emailed the Governor and requested status and to date have not received a response. At any rate, in a couple of weeks, it'll be law without his participation.

    As of yesterday, it's now law. If you have a concealed carry permit in NC, you no longer have to get pistol purchase permits. Yeehaw!

    I was at the Dixie gun show on Saturday. They had signs everywhere and every few minutes would announce it over the loudspeaker.

    Very cool. Of course, all I bought were cleaning patches...:confused: (I bought a P22 earlier in the week)

    I was there on Saturday too, Keller. I heard the announcements and was a bit surprised. I knew that the law had passed and gotten past the governor, but I did not expect it to go into effect instantaneously. It was a pleasant surprise, especially since I used the last purchase permit I have to purchase a Bulgarian Makarov from classic arms. I'll be taking my CCW class next month, so even if the county stretches it out the full 90 days I should have permit in hand by the end of the year. Merry Christmas to me.

    Ahhh you guys were at the show too? Should have had a quick meet/greet :p

    I was surprised when they announced that because I hadn't heard anything about that bill moving forward anymore. Definitely not disappointed though.
