    my pennsylvania ccw was issued in bucks county, it was an instant issue, they ran a background check just like purchasing a handgun, i walked out with it the 25 minutes later..... my oregon ccw took 6 weeks, they can take up to 8 weeks here

    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..

    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.

    Pretty good analogy. I'm the same way.

    I just renewed my NV CCW for the 3rd time a couple of months back. I also changed from carrying a Lady Smith 9mm to a Sig P238 .380 with BB 90gr Jacketed HP. Also, I'd like to mention that there has been a wonderful change in the Nevada CCW Carry Law. Prior to this past July, You needed to qualify with each and every handgun, you may want to carry, at any given time. I know people that had qualified, back then, with 8, 10 guns and even more. Under the new law, all you need to do is qualify with any semi-auto and you can then carry any semi-auto you choose to carry. Also, if you qualify with a Revolver, you can then carry any revolver you choose to carry and/or a derringer. NV CCWs need to be renewed every 5 years via a class and re-qualification.
