    Why were you questioned by LEO?

    I have worn an empty holster into a school (locked my pistol up in the car). It was concealed...no one knew I had it on, so it never came up.

    Do you figure throwing cartridges at assailants is the next best thing? As opposed to leaving the mag with the gun?

    I've inadvertently left a mag on my belt. I suppose in a pinch I could have put a round between my teeth & had someone whack me on the head.

    I think your law probably pertains to a ban on firearms only. Since you were questioned by a PO & he didn't arrest you you'd probably be okay. Don't try to gt on a commercial flight with any ammo, though.

    Well I wear a double pouch that my belt fits through and I guess I could have left the mags in the car but really did not even think about them...I was at a school in the office and the mags were showing below my jacket line. The LEO was in the office and noticed them and he just wanted to talk to me..guess I should just unload everything next time to avoid problems....

    I always have a spare mag in a belt pouch. The pouch completely conceals the mag with a velcro flap, so it's not obvious. It's there no matter where I am.

    Ammunition alone is not listed as a weapon in NC statute 14-269.2 where dealing with educational property so it shouldn't be an issue there.

    I have been stopped a few times going on base with loaded mags and ammo in the truck, guard asked if I had weapons and was told no. No problems.

    Personally, I would not push the issue. If you are in a restricted area for firearm carry/possession, those who work there are already hypersensitive to the presence of firearms. Why draw attention to yourself by carrying loaded magazines?? What is accomplished by carrying magazines other that basically begging to be stopped and questioned? Additionally, in some jurisdictions, even ammunition is considered "hazardous".

    Short answer: Secure the mags with the weapon.

    Unless your state/municipality has a statute/ordinance against carrying loaded magazines, you haven't broken anything. It's the firearm itself most laws address.

    I went to a federal building downtown, dutifully left my gun and trusty pocket knife behind. Then they made me take off my belt. Apparently empty holsters aren't allowed - nothing "gun related" (should have told them it was a GUN BELT too...) but right before me they were allowing a lady in with scissors in her purse "just leave them in the purse and don't get them out" was what they told her. I'm sure leather and kydex is lethal, but scissors are perfectly safe. Idiots. If they have metal detectors you'll be making an additional trip back to the car, unless you want to surrender your mags lol

    Went to school at Ft. Gordon a few years back. Got selected for vehicle search. Had forgotten to remove a magazine or two prior to going down there. Was told I was fine as long as I didn't have the firearm.
