Unlike a drivers license, states are not required to accept all other’s states concealed carry permits. In North Carolina, our Attorney General is responsible for developing Reciprocity Agreements with other states. This process creates the opportunity for a North Carolinian to carry concealed in states that agree to recognize our permit.

 If you have a valid  permit and choose to carry concealed in a state that recognizes North Carolina’s permit you will be subject to the laws of that state and are responsible for educating yourself about those laws. The CCA of NC is committed to providing materials to assist you in acquiring that education.  For states that recognize North Carolina’s permit click here.
