    Jimmy I agree look at what happened to the guy in Ohio the other day struck down by a car and people walked over looked at him and never even called 911 for a minute and 1/2 what the hell is happening to our society....I feel if I can protect myself in someway than I should because I TRUST KNOW ONE....

    Charlie in KY we do not have to take anything over just renew the license, we are given a federal license................By the way I am glad I do not live in ohio...

    Gotta be careful with that!

    WA state calls it a "Concealed Weapons Permit" but it covers ONLY firearms. (As a matter of fact, I think it only covers handguns -- but don't quote me on that -- gotta check.) We have reciprocity with a number of states (seven, I think -- but don't quote me on that -- gotta check); but, if you have a permit that Washington honors which covers other "deadly weapons" in your state, it covers ONLY firearms while you are in Washington.

    I've had mine for about two months. I guess I'm a slow learner.

    Stay Safe,

    I carry my "life insurance" everyday. Pistol in my waistband gives me a little peace of mind.

    Update: Applied on June 27 and expect to receive it on July 16. I'll be a happy camper (and my wife won't be.)

    This is a nice holster, but you will need to wear your shirt on the outside.

    I have a U.S.A. holster, for my Bersa 380, and will shortly be buying the same for my Sig 228. I love this holtser as it is is tuckable.

    Maybe Galco is working on the U.S.A for the Beretta? I have a Taurus PT92 I wouldn't mind getting the U.S.A for too.

    Congrats and Good luck

    Thanks for the links, I like that style of holster and its probably what I'll get. At first I thought I would like a paddle holster but with the size of the 92 it looks like the end of the barrel would be sticking down past a normal length shirt. I've been putting the gun IWB in different positions anyway just to get a feel for what is the most comfortable and inconspicuous. I might get a paddle holster for cooler times of the year when I'm wearing a jacket but, for summer IWB seems to be the way to go.

    I have three permits.

    Oregon, Washington, and Florida. I had to get WA and OR because even though they border each other and both are "shall issue" they do not honor each others permits. Florida I obtained simply because it gave me a big chunk of the rest of the country...including AL and GA (which do not honor my WA or OR permits) where I often find myself.

    I am also ex-LE in WV.

    Okay, I'm a little late on this, but: Say what?

    How does a state issue any kind of federal CCW license?

    Doubtful. Galco makes the USA/UDC for compact pistols. The USA/UDC is intended for front body (appendix) carry. Most people canít tolerate a full size gun in that position.

    They don't, but it's good in multiple states. That's what I think anyhow.

    My FL CCW permit is good in 32 states. Although I have to abide by all the state laws of the state I am in. For instance I can carry billy clubs, and other non-lethal weapons concealed if I choose, even knives. Other states may only allow firearms which means I cannot carry a knife there concealed even if you do so in FL.

    Maybe that's what was meant? Multiple states via reciprocity?

    Had one for Colorado. Moved here in February and had to wait 6 months before getting one for Washington.
