Hi fellow ARF'ers.

Escaped CA and now am in NC :)

No idea what the R&R's are for buying and selling here, except for the pistol permit.
Been here a month, so am going to apply for my pistol permit shortly.

Thanks in advance.

That's pretty much it. Get you carry permit and the whole process is much easier/faster.

Second on getting your pistol permit

What county did you end up in?

A lot of counties sheriffs office are very laid back and get your stuff back in a timely manner. Others are understaffed and take forever. Some will approve your Form 1 stuff quickly and painless, others act like your a criminal for asking.

I’d also recommend joining the Carolina Firearms Forum, a lot of people who dabble with ARs here are also members there. They have an EE as well where you can find firearms for sale locally around you instead of using armslist, which is basically overpriced crap now that constantly gets put back up every few days

Just remember to leave any blue stuff behind, thoroughly sanitized all equipment to prevent the spread. I’ve got a good friend from the Army still living in CA I’ve tried for years to talk into moving

Welcome fellow Cali person. I came in 95 and love it here. So much you can't pay me to ever move back. A few rules....
1. Leave Cali in Cali.
2. Smile and wave.
3. Go ahead and get your CCW. It saves time whenever you are in a gun shop.
That's pretty much it.  What part of Cali are you coming from and what area are you in?

Thanks Gerkyn, Crazysarge16 and NCUrk, really glad to be here. It feels so much more free.
I liberated my rifles of their absurd CA legal devices and make them back to 'normal' and that was a great feeling, lol.

I'm in Buncombe Country (West Asheville), hopefully that is one of the better ones.
NCUrk, I was in Los Angeles for 42 years. So sad to see it in such shambles.

Welcome! I'm actually a native Ashevillian, seem to be few and far between anymore.  PM me if you have any questions, I'm pretty familiar with this place.
