Here is the law as written.

https://www.ncleg.gov/EnactedLegislation/Statutes/HTML/BySection/Chapter_14/GS_14-415.24.html

§ 14-415.24.  Reciprocity; out-of-state handgun permits.

(a)        A valid concealed handgun permit or license issued by another state is valid in North Carolina.

(b)        Repealed by Session Laws 2011-268, s. 22(a), effective December 1, 2011.

(c)        Every 12 months after the effective date of this subsection, the Department of Justice shall make written inquiry of the concealed handgun permitting authorities in each other state as to: (i) whether a North Carolina resident may carry a concealed handgun in their state based upon having a valid North Carolina concealed handgun permit and (ii) whether a North Carolina resident may apply for a concealed handgun permit in that state based upon having a valid North Carolina concealed handgun permit. The Department of Justice shall attempt to secure from each state permission for North Carolina residents who hold a valid North Carolina concealed handgun permit to carry a concealed handgun in that state, either on the basis of the North Carolina permit or on the basis that the North Carolina permit is sufficient to permit the issuance of a similar license or permit by the other state.  (2003-199, s. 1; 2011-268, s. 22(a).)

If you are asking if a person who lives in a state that allows permitless carry of a concealed weapon can legally conceal carry that firearm in NC, the answer is NO...the law states that NC recognizes PERMITS issued by other states...since there is no PERMIT issued in "permitless carry" states, there is no reciprocity in NC.  You can google the NC DOJ and get a list of states that NC recognizes.

Ayup, but a Handgun does not have to be ‘out of reach’ in NC. Just has to be visible.  I carry concealed all day every day. In the event I hit a license check or get pulled over(which almost never happen), I set the hg up on the dash or on the passenger seat.

He was probably refering to having it "concealed" but not having a ccw...in that case it cannot be easily accessible.  For example, in most of NC having it in the glove compartment is fine even if you don't have a ccw because it is not accessible...having it under the front seat without a ccw would be a "no no".  As was stated, NC is an open carry state so just have it visible but don't expect all NC law enforcement to fully know the laws.

That’s why they make attorneys.. there are a few I know of in the Charlotte lkn area that love these types of cases.

Except that, in addition to being a permitless carry state, TN does issue permits as well.  NC has reciprocity with TN and vice versa.  But since NC is not a permitless carry state, barring open carry, I don't even understand why the OP asked the question.

NC is not on the list he quoted, and it isn't on the TN list as being permitless carry either.  That should tell you that you need to have a permit, which is recognized by the other state, before you conceal carry in that other state.

Not to mention, according to that list, SC is not a permitless carry state either.  So the Trooper was wrong in that respect also.  SC only recognizes permits issued to permanent residents of the other state.  If you are military, you are issued a non-resident permit in NC.  SC does not recognize those for reciprocity.  That is what the list is showing.  The OP twisted the information in the list to suit what he wanted it to say, but it doesn't in any way shape or form support the premise of his question.  In the TN page, it states that SC has limited reciprocity with TN.  It only recognizes permits issued to residents and that are also 21 years of age.
