    I live in NC and have a CCW permit. Had to take 8 hrs classroom with a written test at the end and then head over to the gun range to prove that you are proficient with a firearm. Then finger printed at the sheriffs office. Had to wait nearly 90 days to get permit back. They were FLOODED with CCW requests. Good for 5 years here.My daily carry is the XD .40 subcompact or my FNH Five SeveN...another great gun.

    I too am in Oklahoma. I took my class this past Saturday. As Balota stated, you have to take a safety class, submit and application (OSBI), finger prints and fees. And yes, the OC goes into effect on Nov. 1st.

    Thank goodness I live in a very Pro gun state. We can open carry and as of this year concealed carry without a permit, I've had my CCW permit since 1986 when I was in the service. Here in NH it is very easy to get your CCW and usually only takes 2 weeks after applying and submitting finger prints, costs $10 and is good for 4 years. Renewals are a breeze as well, I've never had a problem.

    I'm in Indiana.

    I have a lifetime carry permit. It cost $120, filled out the form, got fingerprinted and that's it. No tests at all.

    Being a cop I don't need one. But I got one so I can carry guns (off-duty) that my job won't authorize.

    I'm in Utah where permits are easy to get.

    COLORADO... I have a CCW but 90% of the time choose to OC. Getting mine was very easy. I'm Military Police. All I had to do was have a money order, my PCS orders to CO & my weapons training rip. Took like 25 min.

    I have a theory about OC vs. CC: If there is a person wishing to do you harm & they see a handgun on your side. They "WILL" go the other way...
    CC on the other hand does provide an element of surprise and does not draw any un-needed attention especially by those anti-firearms people...

    Concealed Carry Permits

    Resident license in Florida. Initial process is about 90 days and renewals have been anywhere from 30 to 45 days. Straight forward process without any traps. Pictures and prints are required.

    Non-resident Maine and New Hampshire; again no initial issue or renewal problems. Application with photos of your home state LTC and drivers license are all that's required.

    Mass non-resident license is another story. Non-resident licenses require $100 and annual renewal fee with digital pictures and prints that must be taken at their Firearms Bureau headquarters in Chelsea MA. You have to file the application and then wait for an appointment for pictures and prints after which they start the process.

    This year I went up at the end of July for pictures and prints and have yet to recieve the renewal. This after having a resident carry permit for over 20 years and now three years of non-resident licenses.

    My advise is if you don't need one in Mass save yourself the aggrevation.
