Got a call last night, one of the local handgun safety classes had a cancelation and had room for me today. I jumped at it, since most opening were over two months away.

Went in today and took the class and scored 100 on the written test and 100 on the range. I'll have everything in order for my concealed carry permit next week.

Be interesting to see how long it takes TN to issue one to you.

I am at the 5+ week mark waiting on Mass to finish my background check.

I don't remember for sure, but I think it might have taken about 2 months to get mine (Texas).

Mine took 2 weeks....Filled out my paperwork, they copied my DL, called them in 2 weeks, approved, went there, paid $20, they took my picture, and printed it out on the spot. I love the south. :thumbsup

The next question is, how long does it take to get your freedom of speech permit and your freedom of religion permit and are you allowed to use them out in the open, or do you have to conceal them? :stir:hello

When I first got my concealed carry it only took 4 weeks for my background check to go through. When I renewed it, it only took 2 weeks for background check to go through.

I am all for concealed carry and open carry, and the right to choose not to carry, but Pred8ter is exactly right. It pisses me off that we are being forced to get the governments permission to exercise our constitutional rights.

It took a month after they took my money for the permit to arrive in the mail. I took an enhanced (or advanced) class a few weeks ago and took the certificate to the State patrol office. I was in and out in less than 5 minutes with the advanced license.

Think about this --

They have your prints, a mug shot, all your ID cross referenced w/ DMV so the police know you're packing when they pull you over . . .

No need for "gun registration" -- They've registered the GUN OWNER.

Which is exactly why I have been considering NOT renewing my permission slip.

Actually, it generally works in your favor with the police. After calling in your license plate #, they know you have a CHL. So, they know you've been vetted and are not a criminal. But, ALWAYS show them your CHL card along with your driver's license. Even though they know, they get pi$$ed if you don't tell them. A cop told me this.

Kd, are you saying the advanced training/class got you an advanced carry permit? What is advanced about it? What can you do with an advanced carry permit you couldn't already do with a regular permit?

I like out setup here in KY. Our law allows us to carry concealed deadly weapons on or about our person. Any number or combination of firearms, switchblades, nunchucks, etc. If it ain't against state or federal law to own a certain type of weapon we are allowed to carry it concealed.

In Mississippi, the advanced permit allows you to carry in places not normally allowed. For example bars as lonf as you're not drinking, stores that do not allow concealed carry, etc. There are a few federal bildings still off limits, but that is about it.
