    I've had a Tennessee carry permit for a couple of weeks now. It just makes sense to me that if you are going to own handguns, you should have a permit to carry them if permits are available to you. Sorry if you live in one of those places where you have to show a "need" and depend on the whims of some county sheriff as to whether you can carry or not.

    Hopefully, the Supreme Court will toss some of those laws in upcoming decisions and let somebody besides the bad guys carry firearms.

    ccw

    I am a law abiding responsible citizen and live in Wisconsin. My ccw is for Florida, wich 32 plus states reconize. ccw is a God given right, ccw permit should not be required. However I abide by the law. Criminals do not!

    Just got my CCW last month. It just makes life so much easier, even if you don't carry concealed. Besides, in Georgia you would need to have a fishing or hunting license to open carry. Those cost $15 per year as opposed to $75 every 5 years for the CCW.

    I don't remember the last time I went walleye hunting with my handguns. Maybe it's all about money?

    I've had my CWP is SC for about a year. Just got around to getting a pistol small enough to carry.
    Got a Kahr CW9 in a Crossbreed holster. Too many shooting in the area, feel better being protected.

    I had my final interview today. It's been 6 months in the making and now my permit should be in the mail in four weeks. Central California isn't tough, but there's a ton of applications making the process very long.

    WOOHOO!

    MD permit is are all but useless. They give the permit, but then put restrictions on where you can carry.

    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.
