This is a discussion on What percentage CCW in your state??? within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by Linda I don't know what the population of Ohio is, but we have approx. 72,000 CHL's out there. We've only had concealed ...
Ohio population: 11,353,140. I calculate 0.63%.Originally Posted by Linda
...and you're right about plain sight. I know 2 people who would have CHL if car carry was reasonable here.
I don't see that with firearms here. I can go to any retailers here in town and get just about anything. The only problem I've had with purchasing is getting an OD Glock which weren't available due to demand so I had to settle for black on both of them.Originally Posted by Rock and Glock
As for ammo, its price is up everywhere that I've seen especially 7.62x39 ammo. 10mm isn't popular caliber up here so its not available much.
as for our percentage....it ain't enough!!!!
of course I'd be curious to see numbers on how many Texans (good guys) carry long guns and/or pistols in their vehicles most of the time but aren't CHL holders, and how many ccw without CHL. I know its not smart to carry the pistols from a legal standpoint but I'm sure there are a bunch that do.
