    I can buy rifles but cannot get pistol or concealed Carry permits Siri

    I have a question I live in North Carolina and have had misdemeanor charges in the past and am able to buy rifles from gun stores with no problems but can not get a concealed carry or a pistol permit. Is this something that anyone else has faced? Cause you would think if you couldn't get a pistol permit you would not be able to buy rifles from gun store?

    I sure don't know your situation but you wrote you had misdemeanors in the past. Plural and how far in the past? You should talk to a NC lawyer.

    Depends on the State I guess? I had misdemeanors when I was young ~24 yrs ago. But I can still get a CPL. But they always make me wait because now the same crime would be a felony. But that makes no sense?
    I don't see how they could upgrade my original charge to something they think it should be. If I were you I would get advice from a professional if you really want to get it resolved. JMO

    It all depends on the laws of your state. If you are wanting to purchase and carry a pistol, you should contact an attorney to see what options you may have. If not, just enjoy the fact that you are permitted to obtain long guns.

    A lawyer would be my 2nd choice if it were me.Here the Sheriff of our county, has the final say, on whether you get the ccw or not.Why not start with him?Don't have anything to lose,except a little time, and may not have to pay someone to help you find out.

    Since NC law is pretty specific on what prior charges will stop you from getting a concealed carry permit and many sheriffs usually use the same baseline to grant pistol purchase permits I'm guessing you are going to be a long gun user for a while. About your only hope is to work on getting your record cleared if that's even a remote possibility. The sheriff has to follow the statutes for the concealed handgun permit which list by number the crimes that exclude you from being eligible so he can't just wave a prior conviction for the permit.
