Privately Selling a Firearm

In March 2023, North Carolina repealed its laws requiring a permit to purchase a handgun. Individuals who are eligible may purchase a firearm with or without a permit through private sales. Those who purchase from a licensed dealer may still be subject to federal background checks, and a concealed weapons permit may be required.

Registering a Firearm

North Carolina does not have any laws that require the state registration of specific firearms.

Concealed Carry

A Concealed Handgun Permit is required for any resident of North Carolina to carry a concealed weapon within the boundaries of the state.[1]

How to Apply

An individual must be twenty-one (21) years old or older in order to obtain a Concealed Handgun Permit in North Carolina.[2] The application process varies by county, but the following steps apply across the state:

Step 1 – Complete a firearms safety training course.[3]

Step 2 – Complete an application for a Concealed Handgun Permit, provided by the applicant’s local sheriff’s department.

Step 3 – Attach all required subsequent documentation and submit the application back to the sheriff’s department.


North Carolina recognizes the concealed carry permits from all states that offer them.[4]
