Hey everyone, i finished school in december and i'm working a job i absolutely hate. i'm also living in a city that i absolutely hate. me and a few friends have been talking about moving to charlotte nc for many reasons. One of the many reasons is better gun laws. I went to school in buffalo ny where i had the pleasure of building a few ar-15's and have a new production m1 garand. sadly living in staten island right now the guns have to be stored at my uncles house in jersey, and i don't even own a handgun because nyc is a bunch of assholes. my brother filed for his about 6 months ago and he still hasn't heard back, not to mention it cost him like $400. Anyway i was wondering what the laws are like in charlotte. I know in NC you can have long guns without registering and for handguns you need a permit for each one and they cost like $5.00. And the state also issues CCW. I was wondering how easy it is to get a handgun permit or ccw. Do you have to be a resident of the state for a certain amount of time? Fingerprinting? waiting period? How are the laws in the city? Does the city issue permits (like NYC), or are they still done through the state? I was also wondering if they have any sort of awb there? In this horrible state my mags have to all be preban and cost me an arm and a leg, and was a pain in the ass to find an upper without a bayonet lug after the ban ended across the country. Can i have high caps? collapsable stocks and all that good stuff in NC and the city of charlotte? Sorry about the long post, just trying to get some info, and i'm getting excited as hell to get out of this shitty state and even shittier city. Any help you guys can offer me would be greatly appreciated.
