I may be moving to NC. I have a valid Michigan CPL. I think once I’m no longer a resident the permit is no longer good as Michigan does not issue non-resident permits. I plan to get a NC permit, but I have to wait 30 days after establishing residency to apply then wait even longer for the permit. If I got a non resident permit from say…New Hampshire would I be legal to carry in NC as a NC resident on that permit. As far as I can tell…yes.
where do you believe you MAY be settling in the tarheel state if you do move & there is no reason to run through the goat-rope you are describing
first, once you find a permanent addy to hang your hat, visit dmv and change your DL & vehicle reg...you're now a tarheel resident.
second, find an 8+ hours as it has live fire mandates CC course [^ $125+/-] then complete your application [$90 +/-] & set up an appointment on the county sheriff's website.
third > > > > wait...
fourth, either visit the sheriff's office or open your mail and put your permit in your wallet.
