No waiting is one of the best benefits of having a Concealed Carry Permit here in North Carolina. You see a gun you like, put down your money and concealed card and you are waking out the door with your new gun in about 5 minutes.

NO STOP IT!
Months and months of waiting, police, explaining, clubs, explaining, wife, explaining... :roll:



Absolutely NO CCP here at all, zero. Only aloud to take the gun to the range and home. Self defence is only permitted with a blunt stick. I would loose all guns if someone was injured...



Here is a little photo shop of what an M&P could look like...

He is from Australia guys.

Their gun all have to have a certain barrel lenght, and I thought there is also something about a caliber larger than .357. Not to even mention that buisness about keeping it locked up at all times, and only being able to take if from the safe to the rage.



I had never heard about a the 28 day wait but that doesn't really surpise me California is almost half way there.

Hey Dan.



Yea, to get a pistol you have to join a club, that takes about a month with attendances...

After that you need to be with the club for 6 months from joining date.

You then "purchase" your pistol, and nothing over .357*, min 5" barrel and 10 in the mag... but the shop holds it for you.

Then you can apply to the Club (three forms) for a "Letter of Support", ligitimising the "need" for a pistol

Then you fill out about 5 forms for the Police application, and wait 28 days...

After that they should grant you permission for a temporary transport permit to collect the pistol from the shop and bring it straight back to the police station for verification.

It's then bang time... About 8 months if things go well before pulling the trigger.

Now for another pistol you need to wait another six (6) months... After this period it's fairly free to get "additiions" providing a reasonable reason...



*larger calibers are ok but only in revolver and for set disiplins, western, metalic etc.



You have no idea how easy it is to get into the shooting sports in the US! Here it is very regulated. Not as bad as England i believe though

When it is kept the magazines need to be unloaded and locked seperate to the pistol. Ammunition locked in another area again... And the cops come out and check that you have the "safe" before processing the paperwork!




California can't get as bad as this? Not with Arnie?? :wink:

I'm over it... I payed for and bought the thing over three (3) months ago. It’s been in the shop since and I haven’t seen it since, like a red haired step child!



Yea, when I get it I’ll give it a damn fine spanking though! :twisted:

Gday mate. I was just stopping by to say hello and to check the progress on your pistol. It sure seems like alot of trouble to get one there. I live in good old Arizona,USA. I purchased my MP40 and walked out the door with it on my hip open carry and that took all of 25 minutes. I was at a local walmart and there was a tour bus and a couple of Australian gentlemen asked if they could take my picture when they saw my MP open carry. They really got a kick out of it. Good luck and be safe. Be sure to post pics of your new pistol.
