    83 year old man gets CWP

    MY DAD!

    He turn 83 on 1/10 and passed his test and exam on 1/20! I knew he could do it but even though he is in great shape he was worried he might not be up to it mentally. Here in SC the law requires 8 hours but if done correctly it generally take 9 or more. A long day for anyone.

    Anyway he got a 94 on the exam and 96 on the shooting test!

    Way to go Dad!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Heyyyy, wait a minute. 83 is plenty old enough to get a CWP. What's the big news here?

    This is what I like to hear, and read about. It sure made me smile considering all the depressing news we've been exposed to lately.

    Congrats to your dad! If we're not already doing it, we should be talking to our family member about this. You can mention it in a "hypothetical" way if you don't necessarily want them to know you currently carry.
