Anyone know if you can use a CCW permit to purchase a handgun or if one must use a sheriff's purchase permit at Arringtons Police Distributors? It was explained to me that not all dealers are accepting NC CCW permits to purchase, some still require the original sheriff's purchase permit. Just curious both Arringtons in Greensboro and in Charlotte are about an hour to hour 1/2 from me. Did not want to drive out there and then be told I need a purchase permit a CCW permit would not be enough. If anyone knows and can help me out....Thanks. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
