    So back in November or so I received a friendly reminder from my local Sheriff that my CCW was due to expire. In my head (and without checking) I thought it expired mid February at my birthday.
    I reapplied December 28 and was told that I'd likely have the new permit before the old one expired.
    Turns out my CCW expired 1-26...... haven't carried since. I called the Sheriff's office this morning and was told that I could carry with my expired card as my application was 'in the system'. This sounds nice but does anyone have any information backing same?

    I wouldn't carry until I got the new one, not worth taking a chance on it.

    Go in, ask the same question and ask for that answer in writing on letterhead signed by the Sheriff himself. Otherwise, wait to carry again until you have the permit.

    Advocating, suggesting, condoning carrying in violation of the law is a violation of GT Rules. Do not do it.

    I'm plainly engaging in nothing you've mentioned, asking quite a valid question Russ. If you'd like to offer anything of value, it would be appreciated.
    My CCW history is entirely legal, and maintaining same is why the question was posed.
    Having not a deposition of the friendly lady answering the phones at the Sheriff's office, I felt the knowledgeable folks at GT a source of information.

    There is nothing illegal about carrying past the expiration date as long as the renewal has been applied for as specified in the statutes. http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/EnactedLegislation/Statutes/HTML/BySection/Chapter_14/GS_14-415.16.html

    Note section (c)

    Not directed at you, sir, just those responding to your question who were advocating such.

    There's the answer. Thanks, NC Bullseye. :thumbsup:

    There was a discussion about this a long time ago, perhaps not even about NC. It was suggested then that someone in this situation carry a copy of the submitted renewal application and/or the receipt for the renewal fee as proof.

    In Florida you can’t carry without a valid license. If you carry and forget your license at home it is a $25 fine, no biggie in the big scheme of things. However, and expired or lost license render them invalid until you receive a new one.

    After seeing what NC Bullseye posted, you all have a bit of leeway; however, you would have had to apply within 90 days prior to the expiration, based on the timeline you provided that doesn’t appear to be the case.

    Not quite sure what your getting at. He applied for renewal on 12-28. His permit did not expired until 1-26 or 29 or so days after he applied for renewal and thus within the requirements of the statute.

    I misinterpreted what I read, you are correct. My apologies. “Within the 90 day period” is not the same as “90 days before its expiration”, which is what I read in spite what it actually said.

    As long as you double-check all local ordinances, since the state preemption still allows localities to regulate the display of firearms on public streets and sidewalks.
