Primemover, you would do well to go to packing dot org(packing.org)
& check out the laws of your state. Basically, most states have very
similar laws. But, there are some variations from state to state. You
should check out your own state.
You may not get exactly the answer you are looking for. But, that site
should give you some good insight on the carry laws of your respective
state. If & when you check out that site, come back & post the info that
Brandishing is generally defined as presenting or displaying a weapon in a manner than COULD BE perceived as a threat. b
A holstered weapon on your hip would probably not justify a brandishing charge unless you acted to uncover and display the weapon, directing that action toward one or more specific person(s) for reasons that could be regarded as a threat.
Plain and simple, brandishing is threatening someone with a weapon.
There's just a little more. If anyone sees you carrying and feels threatened or reports seeing your gun,even if it is in the holster, there are jurisdictions that will prosecute you for brandishing, and revoke the CCW permit. In some areas this is a felony.
Your state attorney general may also have some information on their department website on firearms laws. NC does. It isn't exactly interesting reading but it is informative and fairly easy to navigate.
