CCW permits

Postby fowl_wishes » Sat Aug 04, 2007 7:58 pm

I am workign under the assumption that none of you guys have a problem with CCW since you are obviously gun owners.

Was wondering if any of you had the CCW permit and used it? I am interested in taking a local class and applying for the permit, but not sure what all is involved other than the $90 it takes for the class.


The main reason i am asking is cuz i have the oppurtunity to buy a Colt Mustang .380 for a VERY reasonable price. This will be the first gun i could comfortably carry CCW, my SP10 is a lil heavy and thick for comfort.

They might get my guns, but they'll get the bullets first !

Carry when I can....most places I go are 'gun free' zones here in MI (work, school, ect).
Never had to use it.....hope I never have to; practice like I will tommorrow.

Got mine in 1990 when in Maine then tried to transfer it to MI and was told I did not have need to carry. A couple years later MI became a "shall Issue state" and I got it back. I carry an HK 45acp at all times when not at work. I keep a locking case in my truck to pick up the kids at school or make a stop in the "pistol free / criminal safety zones". Now MI has a bill in the works that will eliminate the "pistol free" zones and we already passed the Castle Doctrine which says that I do not have to try and retreat or hide but can stand my ground if I choose to do so.

MCRGO has sued and won in cases where local city governments tried to create more "pistol Free, criminal friendly" zones that were not part of the original law.

Waterfowlhunter;
Do you have more information on this? I would be interested....I am assuming that if certain establishments decided that they wanted to be 'gun free' zones, they could choose to do so?

Check out MCRGO web site for all the info on MI CCW laws and information on how we can help keep our rights. They also have a list there of Privately owned businesses that do not allow guns in their stores and request that gun owners avoid doing business with these places. Private business owners can post as a pistol free zone legally but Government buildings that are not on the Pistol free list can not and those that have tried have been sued.

got my permit, soon as i could when my state allowed, we now are going on about 3 years on being allowed to get a ccw. I am lucky in that my work place not only allows but encourages people to carry, i work for a animal hospital, plus in missouri, you can carry gun into a so called gun free business, and if they do not like it, the worst that can happen at this point is you have to remove it or leave. I carry all the time, my preferred choice is a 45acp caliber auto,either a 1911 or a springfield armory xd

fowl in NC you have to pay to take the class then you have to pay to have a background check done by the sheriff in your county of residence this can be outrageous. In some counties as little as $45 and then over $100 in others. the great thingabout the cc is that you no longer have to go get a gun permit you can buy on the spot.
