    Thanks
    A permit issued by most counties is good statewide, but some counties have specific restrictions. My permit, issued in Kern County, is good statewide.

    The problem isn't what the number of permits are.............It's how many actually carry.

    I know a lot of people who have permits, but don't carry--

    -'Unless I'm going somewhere I might need it...'
    -'Got it just have one...'
    -'Got one, don't carry because it's to much of a hassle....'
    -'Got one but don't carry because it's uncomfortable...'
    -etc....etc.....


    Yes the total of permit holders is LOW, but the number that actually carry is even lower!

    I've had a permit for over 16 years........The only times I don't carry, is while out of the country or where illegal.

    I know more than 20 people who carry. Far more than 20 actually. I would say nearer to 50 to 60 people that I know carry.

    I voted wrong. I voted 10-15 are applying. I should have clicked 10-15 people I know that are carrying now.

    Problem with this poll is there were 50 people in my class and I do not know any of them or their final outcome and the LGS has a class a month.

    Only know a few and that includes me and the wife. When she applied earlier this year the sheriffs representative advised that there were approx 1800 people with permits in our county and it is a rather small county. There are three locations that hold monthly CC classes and since this spring they are all full each month.

    Wonderful world that I live in, I know of 9 coworkers that have their licenses. Some are better than others about carrying. I know another 4 outside of work that carry regularly.

    is there an option for more than 20?

    I shoot IDPA regularly and I know of a few family members and friends who have theirs. I know way more than 20.

    I voted 16 to 20 people who have their CCW, actually more. I'm in a "unique" Army BN, almost 50-60% of us all have a CCW. Same is probably true for our sister BN's. I even know a few that are also qualified to instruct CCW here in NC.

    Amongst all of my friends, family, and relatives I am the only one who is licensed to carry a firearm. Many though are in states that do not support as much (DC and MD).
