Agree. My brother in-law got his permit simply by having a nice chat with the local sheriff. I doubt he ever educated himself on things like lawful use for self defense, reciprocity, off limit places etc.
Lots of folks don't like the training requirement for a license because of the theoretical (and perhaps real) Constitutional issues. But as a practical matter, we all need to be responsible. And that means learning the laws.

Could you provide a link to any statue that says otherwise?
Opps, I should have read all the post. Yeah that was the way I understood it CPL holders can borrow guns from other people but not the other way around.
In Oklahoma you qualify with either a derringer, revolver, or automatic. If you qualify with the automatic you can carry any of them. With the others only the other. Most instructors will loan you an auto so that you can carry whatever.
In TN, absolutely. A long time ago they had the rotten permit system where the gun you shot to get licensed was the only gun you were allowed to carry.
Thats not been the law for well over a decade now, HERE. MOST States did away with that when they went to a "Shall issue" system.
In Texas if you have your CHL it does not matter what or whose gun or guns you carry as long as it is concealed.

nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
Wisconsin handles CCL people knowing the laws by including a copy of all CC laws with the license applications. that sheet has to be signed & included when you mail it in. That way they can get around the fact that some of us don't have to take the mandatory CC class due to Military Veteran or other status. There's no excuse from not knowing the law then.
We can carry any legal firearm or weapon without proof of ownership. We have no firearms registration here. I've carried my buddy's revolver my son's (my former) Glock 23 & 21 & of course my own handguns completely legally. In my view that's the way it should be.
My son, a cop, on the other hand must register any gun he wants to carry off duty other than his issued firearm with the PD.

The kind of law that says you can only use what's on your lic. is the dumbest thing in my opinion because in a emergency I would not like to look to make sure I can legally defend myself or family. IMO that puts a undue restriction on ones rights but again that's just me, just a minute I don't think my new gun is on my lic. let me check. Kinda like let me run to the other lock box to get ammo to load gun
If i remember correctly,in S.C. when they 1st started the CCP program,you had to carry what you qualified with.I'm glad they changed that.A friend of mine gives the CCP class and has a couple of 22's,he will let you use for the qualifying.
