    MULTI CHOICE POLL: How large is the concealed carry populaion

    Farronwolf has a thread with the title Fever is Catching. It made me think this is a good topic for a poll. Just how many of us are there. Of the 8 I know I'm the only one who post here. Of course there are stats available but they lag and do not capture the applicants that have not actually submitted. Including yourself select the number of people in your circle of acquaintances and colleagues that either are permitted to conceal carry or are actively pursuing or have submitted their application.Multi choice permitted For those of you who live where no permit or license is required, I dunno...I guess if the number people that you know that actually carry and the number is within the poll vote away...then pick the last button.

    Unfortunately, I do not talk about it with anyone. The stats I saw for my county in CA was less than 1% of the population have permits - that's HAVE permits, does not mean they carry, and that is in a county where if one asks for a CCW there is a very good chance the answer will be yes.

    I know a few people that have their license already, and know a few people that are in the process or considering getting their license.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Pardon my ignorance please. When you are issued a permit by a county in Cali. does that limit you to just the issuing/endorsing county(ies) or is the state your oyster?

    in minnesota when you get a permit it is a carry permit - gives the choice to open or conceal carry.
    that said, there are over 54,000 permit holders in the state but i do not know a local who ccw. guess that is the definition of concealed.

    Utah recognizes a California permit.

    Mulligan! Mulligan!

    (Mulligan=golf term for a do-over?)

    I voted for 10-15 people I know with a CCW.

    IMMEDIATELY after hitting the vote button, I thought of at least 15 MORE people I know who carry concealed. Hey, there's lots of us out there!

    UTAHRSO thats when you need one of Bumpers duplicate accounts. Yeah and while you were doing that I was whipping up a little math (thanks to excel).

    As of 12:43 AM 11/8/08 41 Respondents had made their selections. This is by no means scientific just crunching some numbers.

    Category
    Application process Low 49 High 127 Avg 88
    Concealed Carry Low 148 High 241 Avg 195
    Total Avg 283

    Average per respondents 6.9

    Now that I've built the table and made the post I can just copy and change the numbers to update later.

    2004 numbers. I'm sure the numbers have grown quite a bit since.

    Percent of Adults with a License to Carry in each Shall Issue State

    7.45% South Dakota
    6.79% Indiana
    6.76% Pennsylvania
    5.23% Connecticut
    5.12% Washington
    4.34% Idaho
    4.10% Utah
    3.86% Oregon
    3.45% Tennessee
    3.15% Alabama
    2.72% Florida
    2.71% Kentucky
    2.67% Wyoming
    2.41% Maine
    2.18% Arkansas
    2.11% Virginia
    1.94% West Virginia
    1.76% Arizona
    1.75% Oklahoma
    1.70% Montana
    1.70% Michigan
    1.62% Texas
    1.39% South Carolina
    1.34% North Dakota
    1.00% North Carolina
    0.86% Mississippi
    0.62% Louisiana
    0.58% Nevada
    0.45% Minnesota
    0.36% Missouri
    0.33% Ohio
    0.20% Colorado
    0.17% New Mexico <-- Slight correction 12/22/04, per Ken Grubb

    Honorable mentions go to Georgia and New Hampshire. These are "old wave" Shall Issue states--IOW, pre Florida. Because issuance is scattered among many local agencies, no one in either Georgia or New Hampshire is collecting statewide numbers on how many folks are packing. Seems reasonable to place 'em somewhere between the two statistical extremes among the other "old wave" states (South and North Dakota). However, if I were a bettin' man I'd put 'em near the top, and probably above Washington.

    Total licensees among the Shall Issue states (excluding Georgia and New
    Hampshire):
    3,079,246

    Total population living in True Right To Carry states (Alaska and Vermont):
    1,267,925 (0.44 percent)

    Total population living in Shall Issue states:
    185,039,207 (63.75 percent)

    Total population living in May Issue states:
    81,350,620 (28.03 percent)

    Total population living in No Issue states:
    22,588,641 (7.78 percent)

    As of 8:46 AM 11/8/08 74 Respondents up from 41, had made their selections. This is by no means scientific just crunching some numbers.

    Category
    Application process Low 86 High 220 Avg 153
    Concealed Carry Low 276 High 443 Avg 360
    Total Avg 513

    Average per respondents 6.9 still, so I opened up one more decimal so the first read was 6.89 to 6.93 on this one.

    I only know of a handful, other than you all , but I'm sure I have come across many that were good at concealment.
