Can't seem to find the answer and was hoping you may enlighten me.

Can a NC resident carry using a non-resident permit?

Here is the situation: I will be moving to Raleigh on May 28. Right now, I can carry in NC as an NJ Resident with a FL non-resident permit. Once in NC, I have to wait 30 days to apply for a CCW permit, plus processing time. I assume I will have to change my DL to NC prior to filling out the application. I would like to not have a "lapse in coverage" if you know what I mean.
