    One of the other threads about new CCW permits got me wondering. How many folks here have gotten their carry permits within the last year or so?

    I have been an avid shooter most of my life (mostly long guns) but for some reason I decided I go ahead and get my carry permit. I problably will never be an every-day-carry kind of guy but I though I'd get it just to have.

    Sound off.

    I got mine about a year and a half to two years ago. Carried daily until our lease finally ran out in that crap hole neighborhood. Now, I keep one handy, but not necessarily on my hip 24/7.

    If you asked in the Carry Issues forum you might get more answers.

    The way you describe yourself sounds exactly like me. I got my CCW last year.

    My thoughts exactly. Even if I wanted to, currently in Ohio restaurants that server any kind of alcohol are off limits... so 95% of the places where I might to and need protection on me (Downtown Cleveland) are off limits.

    I still need to work on the wife to get her more comfortable with the idea of carrying as well. I wanted to get my Permit for two reasons:
    1. The principle
    2. To support the carry movement. The more numbers of carriers, the harder it is for the politicians to ignore.

    Got mine just under a year ago. I carry daily. I bought a Glock then figured why not be able to carry it concealed.

    I got mine about a year ago and carry a Glock 26 daily. Starting to look for something different, though. I want a longer grip so my pinkie finger has something to do.

    I got mine last June, as well as three other friends. I carry every day but am honestly not sure if they do or not.

    This should be in carry issues.

    I've had mine for a few years now but in the last month or so, I've helped two friends become new gun owners (one Glock and one XD) and new CWP holders. Currently I'm working on a third.
