    - I'm not from NC, but I can't imagine why having a pacemaker would disqualify you from a CHP. The only medical reason would be for mental illness.

    Having a pacemaker should not disqualify you from getting a permit. If they make 100% perfect health a prerequisite for a permit, I doubt if they would issue more than a few hundred state wide!

    Here are the requirements from the NCGS. There are no medical disqualifications that I am aware of.

    I read your other thread first and responded to that one. I know of no laws that would disqualify you from carrying.

    The applicant does not suffer from a physical or mental infirmity that prevents the safe handling of a handgun.
    As long as you can handle a handgun safely, you should be good. You don't have to tell them that you have a pacemaker anyway...

    The link that chiefjason gives you is the full chapter and verse of what the requirements are and as long as your not getting jump started frequently enough to cause you to not be able to function normally in day to day activities you should be good to go. If you can hold a drivers license you should be fine.

    I notice you're located nearby so if I can help in any way let me know. I teach the course if you have any other questions.

    I have a pacemaker, no problems or restrictions.

    The only reason that I can think of is if when your defib activates you do not have a muscle jerk that causes you to draw and fire the weapon.

    Having said that, how is your defib going to respond to a high stress situation if you were forced to draw your weapon in SD?
