This is the first year ever I thought of carrying on my trip to the OBX, in fact the thinking is over so this thread caught my eye. Thank you.
Sad state of affairs, I likely won't on person carry at points A and B of the trip, just the line in between. And yes I would announce the permit and weapon if I am stopped by LEO. Sometimes common sense makes it to law and the sensible have no issues with complying. I am more Pro LE than I have ever been in my life, I have always had great repsect, now I find myself pulling for them out there, they are on edge and rightfully so.
It is when the law and/or citizen lack common sense that we run into trouble.
