I picked up the form to get my concealed carry permit the other day. The last question on the form is "REASON FOR APPLYING FOR A CONCEALED WEAPON PERMIT:" I was thinking self defense would be what I would put down but thought I would ask first. Thanks.

Yes that sounds better. Do you have your permit DigDug? A friend of mine just got his and he said it was very easy (the testing part) so I decided to get mine.

What do you mean 'shall issue'? I think I remember that blind person getting a CCW permit (Grand Forks?).

He's talkin on the ND form, it asks why you want or need a permit.

My instructor was Mike Nason, an Investigator with the ND AG's office, the agency that handles the permits.

He told me to put "To comply with the law", four weeks later I got my permit.

To bad you can't be honest. I mean the real reason is to have a gun when you need to shoot someone. For defense of course. Maybe also a dying deer that I just pummeled with my Speed Racer driving technique. But seriously what else would you need it for. Maybe opening beer cans and turning off the light like Homer Simpson. (Joking of course. He's a pro, don't try it at home.)

PS. Good luck on the permit.

So should I just put 'all lawful purposes' down?

you want to see something really mind boggling? Calculate permits per permit holder.


Dang! 100% North Dakota Rules!

I put "target, hunting, self defense, and all other legal purpouses as defined by law."

Lets look at this another way.

ND only has about 635K people according to the census.


IA has 2.9mil, My local sheriff has issued over 9000 CCW's for this county alone which is 88,700 people. the majority of the counties population lives here in town (56,000). And we aren't shall issue.

You are correct! Self defense, NOT "so I can squeeze off as many rounds as I can to eliminate any threat that comes before me."

I prefer " personal protection "....very simple, very bland.

To run off that stupid ex-wife of mine!To shoot out the lights on a small town Saturday night. So when somebody flips me off, I can shoot them. Because I want to be a real bad ass! In case I have to go rob a bank, I can legally have my gun on me. Because I am a vigilante. In case aliens from outer space try to abduct me again!! I could go on but it's time for my meds.

I put down "to pistolwhip my ho's".

That went over well.
