Who here has CCH permits (concealed carry permits)?

Some states simply require a background check and ya pay a few dollars. Here in TX, we have to do that, but also take a class and pass a shooting test. U also have to do this for every renewal. That gets old. In another few months, I have to go take the class for the 4th time. I'm tired of hearing all the same common sense stuff over and over...

Must be nice :p

But, overall, we don't have too many limitations here in TX. A "no guns" sign can be ignored by someone with a CHL. A "proper" sign must be hung - english and spanish, with 1" letters, with a long paragraph that mentions the exact statute and other required language.

When the law first came into effect in 1996, I saw more of those signs than I do now. I only typically see them at the hospital and a handful of banks now.

I don't really need a permit, as I am LEO. But I carry different handguns.

On Duty: SIG P226
Off Duty: Springfield P9
Sometimes: P99 or Sphinx AT-2000

I only carry it when I need something quite small, with enough firepower.

I like the concept of the P99, but it would really rock with a longer barrel ;-)

Oh, and when I carry it, it's with an additional Pocket on the belt (tubular object inside)

Not that I hate Glocks, but it is nice to see someone in LEO carry a Sig.

When I lived in WA state getting a permit was easy and simple.

I usually carry my old Sig P220 .45 back then and sometimes carry my Walther PPK .380 for backup.

Then I moved to Kali and it's the opposite there, no chance in getting a permit there.

Now I moved out of Kali and it's easy to get the permit exept got to take a class but after you get the permit your NICS fee of any firearm you buy is free as long as your permit is current.

CCW in COLORADO here. :)

CO CCW is one of the most flexable CCW out there. I can goto the restaurant that sells more than 75% alcohol in terms of revenue. Church is okay (but i prefer not to). Liquor store is fine as well.

As long as, it isn't K-12 school, or Universities that does not allows CCW. Also places that prohibits by federal law.

We do not need to tell LEO that we got CCW, but I prefer telling them. They were more than nice to me when I told LEO that I have CCW.

I do.
I'm a former CCDW instructor here in Kentucky.

We also have to take a written and shooting test, pass a background check etc. Fee is $60 for 5 years. Our license also allows us to carry auto knives, numchucks, and "other" weapons concealed.

We have reciprocity with over 30 States at this time.

Count me in too. I had to leave it in the car today when we got to the State Park though. (We rode the train from Rusk to Palestine and back) I wish we could get rid of these "gun free" zones.
