I just need to go pick it up. Woo hoo! Come to find out, I'm a decent guy and haven't been arrested or anything. Ain't that somethin'?

Damn, this state will give a permit to damn near ANYBODY.

It's pretty sweet.

Don't worry, they can't see it when it's concealed, but the first few weeks or so you'll think everybody's zeroing in on your piece

Welcome to the "I ain't gonna go by laying in the floor, sucking my thumb, and begging the bad guys not to hurt my family" club!

Train like you fight, fight like you train! Getting your CCW is merely the BEGINNING! Now you need to train, study, and hope you never need to use it!

No, I did it because of that God Awful M*ch*g*n Jacket that you like to wear. Seeing that just one time is provokation enough, hippy.

If he wears that jacket in certain parts of Ohio, he's likely to NEED that ccw.

LOL

I have to tell you, on my driving trips, I have NEVER had worst crazy-driving (for MILES) than I have when I'm in Ohio. Geez!

But that's for another thread.

I hear ya.

I take the class tomorrow night, and should have my permit sometime this spring.

I just got a CCW piece...Now I need to find time to take the class and get "legal"

Link Posted: 1/9/2006 3:48:00 PM EDT
What is this "concealed carry permit" that you speak of?

Oh well, I'm about an hour away from a state that does give out CCW permits...


INDIANA!

Wow, some of you guys have to wait an awfully long time. I'm actually a bit suprised. I aquired mine in Williams county (adjacent to mine, so ok to apply there) and it was a very pleasant experience. My county will only take applications on Tuesday, and only in the morning. It seems like the process is a burden to them. Williams county on the other hand is very efficent and - dare I say it - HAPPY that people are getting their licenses. Like mine, it is a very rural county. There might be a total of 15 deputies in the whole county.

It occured to me that carrying was a better idea with a holster. I have a few in mind, but nobody carries them locally. Basically, the only stuff you can get locally are Fobus, Uncle Mike's, Bianchi...you know - typical gun store fare. For now, I bought a leather Bianchi Model 105. They didn't have any IWB holsters I liked, that fit a full size 1911. It's winter time, so I've always got an unbuttoned shirt worn over my regular shirts.

It actually conceals quite nicely. Nobody knows. I made it a point to bend over, reach high for things, etc. Nobody noticed. At the end of the night, I informed a few folks that I was carrying. They were quite suprised (and quick with the thumbs-up). I feel pretty confident about it now. You almost have to know what you're looking for. The only ones that MIGHT notice are other CCW holders, and they won't be alarmed.

Going on 25 days here, don't know if I'm even gonna get it, cause I'm in Mass.

Get a job, move out, and head south my man.


ETA: Actually, you'll want to head south east I suppose. I'm tired tonight.

Turned in my application back in late November. Rejected first time because I didn't throw in a copy of my orders, oops! Rejected again a few days later, this time for blurry prints. Got them done electronically (they won't let you do them electronically the first time), and they sent them off Dec 13th, been waiting since. The told me it would probably take about 6 weeks (from Dec 13th).

I think my 1911 will be my carry. I have two P99s, but I can't seem to find a good holster, and I've emailed two companies about custom making one, but to no avail.

Man, isn't there a maximum time limit codified somewhere? I would go nuts waiting that long.

In Texas it is months. I'm not sure the limit but it is 3 months at least I think..

ETA 60 days or up to 180 if problems arise.

I honestly don't know what the max waiting time is, but its late so I'll look it up tomorrow. I've heard it can be up to 4 months (possibly longer I'm sure, if they're backed up).

But.....that gun is cocked! Aren't you afraid it'll go off?

(Yes, I've had friends say that about my Defender).
