    Would carrying a shotgun up in Pisgah Forest be a problem? I'm aware I can carry a handgun but what about a long gun? I'm not going hunting but would I get hassled?

    Well you can have it "in designated camping areas for defense of persons and property".

    I wonder if the" not for immediate use" could construed as unloaded and slung over my shoulder.

    I don't see why not, but a LEO and/or judge might see it differently.

    When the SHTF you take the machete, I'll take the .22 pistol. :mrgreen:

    North Carolina doesn't allow firearms carry in their state parks, unless it's an area where hunting is allowed. Even then, you may only be allowed to carry long guns in those areas. Not positive, though.

    The OP has asked about the Pisgah National Forest, although that's good to know about State Parks.
