    A coworker told me a while back he had applied for a CHL, I said good for you dude, that's awesome. Sunday I asked him if he had gotten hid CHL yet, and he said he had been denied. I said that sucks man, I'm sorry to hear that, he said the letter said he was denied because he had gotten a DUI in 78, he said you make one mistake when you're young and dumb and it follows you the rest of your life. Somehow the conversation turned to guns and booze, and I said those two do not mix at all. He then told me "yes they do, I love to get drunk and shoot". This guy lives in the country and shoots on his own land, I don't know how close his nearest neighbor is, but thank goodness he don't go to public places to shoot. I feel very much safer knowing this idiot didn't get a CHL:alex::upeyes:

    Good lord. Alcohol and Guns never go well.
    If I'm going out for a night drinking with my buddies, which is rare, I'll leave my gun at home unless I'm the DD.

    I don't mind people who shoot on their own property to have a few beers while plinking, but getting "drunk" leads me to believe this guy probably has lead flying places it shouldn't. Me and some buddies usually drink a few while shooting here at my range at least once a month. A few beers, stop drinking, finish shooting, then put guns away and finish drinking whatever we're going to drink. Key words there are "stop drinking" until done shooting.

    On the other hand, carrying and drinking is an entirely different animal...not only can you get your permit revoked, but it opens up a huge liability on your part if you should happen to shoot anyone with alcohol in your system.

    Does OK disqualify people for something as simple as a DUI 30+ years ago? I really find that hard to believe without seeing the letter.

    Kind of like most sex offenders tell everyone they got in trouble because the parents of their HS girlfriend didn't like them. People minimize things.

    I had DUI in Florida in the early 90s. Florida saw fit to give me a Non-Resident permit back in 2006.

    Either the OP's state is very strict, or there is more to the story.

    A friend of mine in NC said that her state requires that a CCW applicant not have had a DWI conviction within the past 3 years.

    '78? Wow.

    Hmmm....Okie I think he is pulling your leg!

    I looked up the state law, for DUI it requires two convictions and it only precludes for 3 years from last conviction.

    Ya I highly doubt a single DUI convictions would disqualify you for a CCW... Unless that one conviction was a felony because he injured someone...

    As they should!

    Now if you were CONVICTED of a violent crime, you should be denied a CHL.

    For non-violent misdemeanors, I see no reason to deny a CHL.

    A lot of applications will ask you if you have ever been arrested or had a DUI. If you say no, you just lied, and that can get you denied. No matter how long ago it was say yes and explain that it was a long time ago and you learned your lesson. Failing to disclose seems to indicate a character issue.

    Well spoken. I afree with this statement. I guess living in a city in the north I haven't really been given the option to have a beer while shooting. Unless you count a beer in a tree stand during buck season.

    In NC you can not have a DUI for 5 or 10 years. Not sure about the time but a DUI 35 years ago sounds like BS.
    Drinking a beer on your own land is one thing, but shooting when drunk is another.

    Something is up for sure then. I wonder what it is? No matter what it is though with his attitude on drinking and shooting I think it's for the best he got turned down:phew:
