    I am able to carry to/from work, to/from the bank (Work bank), and on normal business activities. So what does this mean? If I'm on my way home and want to stop at the store, I must dis-arm, unload the weapon, secure it in an enclosed case or holster in the trunk. You see the grocery store is outside of my restrictions. Same if I'm at work. If I go out on a job, I can't stop at 7-11 for a cup of joe without going through the hole disarming thing. They want you to say "why bother". Meanwhile we've go Murder Capital USA 30 miles away in Baltimore. Baltimore has 1/10 of NYC population but half as many murders. You really do take your life in hands when you go down there. And are the police under any legal obligation to protect you??? NO! Their first obligation is to make it home safe. (Can't really blame them for that.)

    Wow what a rant...
    I live on the Eastern Shore of VA about 15 miles from the MD border and boy am I glad they finally built a Wal-Mart on this side of that border so I don't have to put up with that crap. No reciprocity with VA and a quick 1 year in jail if caught carrying minimum. And not to mention that the murder rate is climbing every year in Salisbury and Pokomoke. Gotta say criminals love a disarmed citizenry

    Both my wife and I have ccw in state of residence, NV and in non-resident state of CT. I have a 40 Springfield xd subcompact and wife has a S&W 38 sp + p, j frame with larger grip but finds my 40 has less recoil. Part of energy is used to move slide so recoil is less. Find the 40 too heavy for cc so will purchase a 380, half the weight and smaller profile to carry when back in NV. Light clothing not condusive to carry larger, heavier pistol.

    Shoot what u carry and carry what u shoot.

    Call me paranoid

    I have three right now; one from the State (but they will not back you up off duty), one from the Sheriff of the County in which I live (a normal CCW) and one with the small Police Agency I work for part time (the one I usually carry).

    My wife and I have ccw in NV and CT, snowbirds with residency in NV for tax purposes and weather. I ride motorcycles. Shoot in Kingman AZ Mohave sportsman club. Cannot make it across country and be legal carrying b/c some states are crazy about citizens legally carrying. Hope this changes with help of NRA.

    Been armed one way or another for the last 48 years, but to answer the question, I do tho I'm not required to. Saves time and hassle. If I'm questioned by any inexperienced LEO, I break out my official creds and that's the end of the story.

    I like it that way

    It depends on where you live, both state and locality within the state as there can be a wild amount of difference.

    My wife and I just took our CCW safety class last weekend and have an appointment to apply for our permits on the 22nd. I am told that in the county we live in it takes 90 days from then. Other counties in our area take about two weeks on average.

    My wife and I both have our Az. CCW permits. It is the only way you could carry during archery season in some states and we use them for firearm purchases which makes it easy because you need not wait for the NICs check. You just buy it. It's not hard to get. One class and basically if you can legally buy a handgun you get the permit.

    Yes, I have a permit, and I live in Central California. Some parts of California are impossible to get permits; I'm lucky...

    I had one for 6 years now. and I Am also a Texas DPS Certified Concealed Handgun Instructor, A NRA pistol, NRA Home Firearm Safety Instructor as well. I DO NOT go anywhere "unarmed" and trust me I get alot of people I know ask why do I carry all the time. I tell them cause a cop is much heavier to carry. But most of all I just want my family safe when we are away from our home. I can say I dont go out looking for trouble, But I can not control others actions. as long as they dont mess with my family or me then they have no worries.

    I've only had my permit for a week, but all I had to get used to was concealing. Open carry is legal here, too.
    in kentucky also,, had ccdw for about 15 years.... and we do have open carry like tekniod said.... i grew up in harlan county so ive been carrying in my car since i was 16 and carried concealed way before they pass law...... just one of those mountain boy things...

    yeah... we have to reup in ky every 6 years... we write 2 checks... 40 to state police and 20 to county....they charge 2 bucks for the picture... thats all you have to do... and when you purchase a gun... just give them your ccwd and they dont even call in the background check because its already been done when you renew... no waiting period either..

    Sure do. Just as soon as they made a law saying I had to have one to keep carrying.

    About 11 years now, first 7 in Florida, last 4 in Georgia. Carrying has become such a part of me it's as automatic as putting on a seat belt in a car. Come to think of it, there are a number of similarities between the two, such as: Hope you never need it, probably will never need it, but if you ever do need it you're gonna' REALLY need it.
