    Confused

    I am currently in the military. I am originally from KY, but am currently sitting over in Iraq. I would like to get my concealed carry permit for when I get back, but not really sure how to go about getting it. I have read on the internet that some states don't require the course if you are law enforcement/military, but don't know how true that is. If anyone is from KY and has any input on this matter I would really appreciate it. Thanks for the help.

    Chris

    Chris,
    Thanks for your service, and Congrats on getting Zarqawi for us!

    My understanding is that your Police/Military firearms training meets the requirement for the "class" we non-LE/MILL schleps take.
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    Chris, Most states take your DD 214 as proof of training. Of course if you are on your first enlistment you won't have one yet. Like the other folks said check the State web site.

    Hey Chris, stay cool and don't let the camel spiders get too close!

    Just an FYI for Minnesotans serving in the Military, if you take the pistol marksmanship training you can use that to apply for your carry permit.

    However, I would actually recommend taking a carry course to become familiar with proper uses of deadly force in the civilian world.
