I feel silly asking this.. but I simply don't remember. I haven't been living in NC very long and have never bought a shotgun/rifle since.

You don't have to have a permit to purchase a shotgun/rifle do you? Can't they just run the background check on you while you're there? Is it usually immediate?

I have a carry permit, but it was lost & haven't got a replacement from the sherriff's office yet (waiting on new drivers license to get here before that)... so it'd be over a week before I could even ask the sherriffs office to get me a replacement, and I would like to purchase a shotgun before Saturday.

you are correct, no permit is required for a long gun purchase......the dealer will call in the background check info while you are there

New driver's license? Do you have a NC license now? I think you have to have it to prove who you are?

sorry, I missed the driver's license comment.....when I bought a shotgun last year I was asked for my NC driver's license
