    Anyone here have a carry permit? I am taking the class and "test" this weekend and just wanted some input from other people.


    I am planning on using my full size 9mm for the shooting qualification as I have had it for ten years and am most comfortable with it. The gun I bought for carry is not only newer (been out to the range 4 times with it) but is a subcompact .45 so not very accurate.


    Any thoughts?

    I've been thinking about it, but I'll have to see if I'm even allowed to get a permit being a VA resident in KS... they should have a military clause, but you never know.

    I do know some states require you to actually qualify with the firearm you plan on carrying, though. I assume that's not the case in your state?

    I've been waiting for my interview for 11 months. I went down last month and requested an update, a timeline, anything. I met with the Investigator, said he would probably call me in late December.

    Do it. I live in a County that does issue, but takes forever.

    Never carry a gun that's caliber does not have the numbers 4 and 5 in it.:rolleyes:

    I have Glocks in .45, love'em.

    Practice a lot. That is a lot more than you think it is, believe me.

    And get low-light training. Good Luck.

    Here it's 16 hours of class, target qualification (250 rds) and then wait 14 weeks for the local Sheriff to compete the background check. Oh, $100 per 3 years fee.


    I just wanted to know if anyone had done the shooting part of a class, see what range and target silhouette they would use.
