    Got It!!

    Although I've been carrying concealed for about 8 months now, I finally got my permit today (permits are not required in Alaska, thus the reason I have been carrying)!!!

    It is nice to build some credibility with a LEO, should an encounter occur.

    The pain in the butt is that my license number and my permit number are the same, so if, for some odd reason, I'm not carrying, the officer will expect the permit. It's all good though!!

    Thank God for the Second Amendment!!

    I'm a little confussed. In Alaska where you do not need a permit, they still issue permits? Whats the point of getting a permit if you do not need one?

    Reciprocity.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    2 major purposes. 1, reciprocity with at least 30 or so states. 2, it builds some credibility with some LEO's, especially in the Anchorage area where some officers still think a permit is necessary. While the permit is not necessary anywhere in the state, having one may save some major headaches while there.

    Had no idea that an Alaska permit was good in 30 states. I always thought that a Florida or Utah permit carried the most states. Congrats!

    I wish all states were like Alaska & Vermont. No permit required.
