Is this accurate?


Some States have made it easier for active and discharged military personnel to obtain a license or permit to carry weapons. Tennessee has reduced the mandatory time spent in the permit course by 1/2, for active or discharged individuals who can show proof of pistol training completed while in military service. Florida will issue a resident or non-resident license to carry weapons, to active or discharged military individuals who send in a copy of their DD-214 with their application and fee. Other states are considering similar measures that will make it easier for active soldiers and veterans to obtain a weapons license or permit.

Some what, when I got my CCL a couple of duty stations ago I didn't have to do the silly 50 rounds into a double sized silhouette target at 7m that everyone else in the class had to, this the instructors charged an extra 50 dollars to do. All you had to do was prove you had qualified with a weapon before.

But you can open carry in AZ without a permit, correct?

In a "shall issue" state, you just need to complete the prerequisites and they shall issue you the permit.

I did a search but I cannot seem to find which states have open carry, concealed carry, shall issue, and the requirements for each.

Is there an internet reference?

Bump - any info on this would be greatly appreciated.

I used google but I guess I choose the wrong wording in the search.

Thank you for your help. It is better to ask than not know.

I go pick up my renewal tomorrow. Got my letter in the mail today to come and get it.
VA=shall issue, .mil copy of your DD214 or Mil I.D. = training

ETA - Link is good but site must be down at this time.

When I got my Florida non-res license, my DD214 sufficed for any training requirements and that was 4 years ago.

Here in Kentucky everyone sets through the same 8 hour class, shoots the same 20 rounds at a B26 target and pays the same $65. Open carry is still free for everyone.

I just spent about an hour on the NRA-ILA referenced site. I had no idea that Vermont was such a free state.

Gets one thinking....

The instructor at your local police department will probably have the best answer for you. I know in Mass. it doesn't matter. I was a weapons instructor in the Marine Corps and I still had to wait 8 weeks for mine. But in Mass, you're really waiting on the town and not the state.

Works that way for residents too - DD214 proves adequate training.

Palo: YES we can open carry here in Arizona.

Except for "prohibited" places. Banks, Post Offices, Gov't. buildings.

And I have yet to pay attention to a private business-other than a bank-with a "No Weapons" sign on the door. I was looking at my cellphone when I walked in.

And that's why they call it "Concealed Carry".
