    CCW Holders?

    I am just curious to see how many people on this forum actually have a Carry Concealed Weapon License.

    Yep! I got mine and so does the wife. If a man carry's nothing but a pocket kinfe he should get one. Ours in Florida says Concealed Weapons Permit. That can cover a lot of things.

    for a few years now. I am lucky enough to be allowed to carry at work. I carry 12 - 16 hours a ay 7 days a week. Holster comfort takes on a whole new comfort zone for that much carry.

    Kentucky's too (Concealed carry deadly weapons permit). I was kind of surprised what I could carry after getting it. Switchblades, longer knives, and a lot of things I'd just hurt myself with (chucks, throwing stars, etc.)

    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.

    I feel every law abiding citizen who is mentally, physically and legally able to carry firearm should. It is your God given right to protect yourself and those close to you, and maybe those who are unable to help themselves.

    Law enforcement officers are 1st responders, not the 1st people on the scene of a crime. They cannot be everywhere all of the time.
    You owe it to yourself to carry. Period.

    I've had mine for a bit over a year now. Still trying to convince the wife to get hers (at least she carries OC spray). Here in NC it's just a Concealed Handgun Permit, not Weapon. No automatic knives, stars, batons, etc. for me. Guess I'll just have to make do with my XD40 and/or my P3AT.

    I agree that more people should carry and should be more responsible for their own protection. The police can't be everywhere.

    My wife and I each have Ohio CCWs. These are good for carrying a firearm only. She favors either a Kahr MK-9 or her HK P2000 SK. My favorite carry weapons are the S&W Model 60 with 3" barrel or a S&W MP .40C.

    Had mine over 12 years (got it as soon as Texas passed the law and I got all my stuff done ). Just a damn shame we have to PAY somebody every few years and go through the same crap every time. I don't think my fingerprints have changed much....... The only difference between now and when I first got it is I'm considerably dumber and a little more ornery (is that a word?)!!!

    I have them in AZ and CT, so with reciprocity/recognition, I can carry in most states I visit. Wish I could get one for CA, but that seems like an awful lot of trouble for an annual pilgrimage to wine country.

    Been carrying for...I don't know...years.

    Have a Louisiana Concealed Handgun Permit. Got it over a month ago. I feel naked without my gun and never leave home without it. I carry to protect my family and my business. I am a car dealer and a few years ago, a fellow car dealer was killed by 2 bg's trying to rob him. He was a retired state trooper and has his 9 mm in the desk drawer. I feel if he would have had it on his person there would be 2 dead bg's and a retired state trooper enjoying his life. I only carry a keltec p32 but I am apretty good shot with it. I feel I need to carry something with more stopping power but it would be hard to conceal in shorts or blue jeans. WHAT A GREAT FREEDOM WE HAVE IN AMERICA TO CARRY WEAPONS TO DEFEND OURSELF. THANKS TO ALL VETERANS AND CURRENT MILITARY FOR OUR FREEDOM. GOD BLESS US ALL!

    I have one.

    In Arizona we can carry open but if we go into a post office and a few other places we need to leave the weapon in the car. Without the carry permit, if you stuff it under the seat or a coat so passerby's won't see it you are breaking the law. I got my permit as much to allow hiding the pistol momentarily as to actualy carry concealed.

    I do carry concealed part of the time but open most of the time.

    We need to excercise our open carry right if we wish to keep it. IMHO

    Enjoy.

    I have had a CCW permit since I was of legal age to acquire one, and I encourage others to do so.
