I just got this idea the other day. Now, I've been looking on the forum for a
previous post about this topic. If by chance, it was already posted, pardon the
duplication. Anyway, I'll start: I received my CCW on the 25th of January of 2005.

That gives me 2 1/2 years carrying CCW. What about the rest of you good folks?
I know that there are lots of folks that have been CCW for many more years than I.
Let's see 'em!

I have had my CHL now for 6 months. I love it. I feel way more secure than I ever have.

BTW, I may be incorrect about this, but doesn't CCW mean Concealed Carry Weapon?

CHL: Concealed Handgun License
CHP: Concealed Handgun Permit
CCW: Concealed carry Weapon

Hey BoneDigger:

That was great! And you are exactly right. It should be in the CCW section!
What the heck was I thinking?! It does make perfect sense. Thank you for moving
the thread. :D :D

Oh by the way: I believe you are correct. CCW(Concealed Carry Weapon)

From my understanding the verbage varies by state. The state calls it a CCW Permit here.

I actually sent my paperwork in over 2 months ago, still not back. They are running 12-16 weeks here. I have carried concealed in my truck since taking the class in Dec. (and finding out that is was legal here). I also own my own business, so I am in my truck or at my desk 95% of the day and I carry in the office.

I've had my permit roughly 5 years. After a while you do feel strange without a weapon on you.

Different states call it different things. Here in Mn, its a Carry Permit. Concealment isn't required but it recommended.

I don't have one yet, but in Florida it's a C.W.P. Concealed Weapons Permit. It's not just for handguns, but also covers pepper spray of over a certain strength, and edged weapons.

My wife and I have been since 1995 here in FL. I got my Makarov and Taurus PT92AF that year. My wife got here SW .38 Airlite about the same time.

I've been carrying concealed since 1971, when I was sworn in as a Police Officer, in Southern Calif., so if my math is correct, 36 years. (gee, how time flies.)

I'm fortunate to live in a state which permits retired police officers to carry, no permit required. As long as you have your retirement police ID, you're good to go.

For the past 3 years, I've qualified for nation wide concealed carry, under HR218, The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004. In that capacity, I carry far & wide.

I received my TN permit in Feb 06. I have basically carried daily since then. I had one in AL when I lived there, but rarely carried for some reason. If I am not carrying now, I am either asleep or in the shower.

I've been carrying since about 1998, since I was 20 at any rate. In Indiana we can apply for and receive our must-issue permit at age 18, but I elected to train and be trained for two years before packing in public. I got used to a holster on my family's land.

So, 10 years, or most of my adult life.

The CHL (Concealed handgun license) has only been available in Kansas since Jan 2, 2007. Mine was issued on that date and I carry every day. ;D

While Indiana's Personal Protection Permit is one of, if not the oldest, CCW inclusive permit in the nation (1932), I have only been carrying for 1.5 years now.

Loving every minute of it...
