    I used to work in a county where for your permit to be valid, you had to have $500 in cash on your person while carrying. It had to be cash, not valuables (jewelry, or gun). IIRC, the permit fee was $100, and the training was at least that much too. Seems that the cost of taking $500 cash out of your accounts forever just to carry it was a bit high. By the time it was all said and done, you could have easily invested over $1500 for the priveledge. In my opinion, rights are not purchased.

    Here, the permit is $10, good for 4 years.

    Seems the system is working against the citizens who really need the protection.
    Yes, and not only are fees too expensive for a lot of good folks, the antis are constanly squawking about about banning Saturday Night Specials, taking away affordable guns from people who need them.

    It's slick politics disguised as a policy to "protect our children from senseless gun violence" - when the people's ability to be independent is stripped away (and the ability to defend one's own body being one the highest forms of independence), they become dependent, and they turn to the System for protection. It's convenient having a lot of people relying on the System, because then they're easy to control and the System gets their votes.

    Don't complain, you guys should feel lucky! I spent over $1000 just to get denied! Moved to a different county, just talked to the Cheif LEO this morning, he said don't even bother trying to apply, there is no reason good enough for him to issue a permit to anyone! Welcome to sunny California! I hope California feels safe knowing that you can't carry a gun, have more than 10rd capacity, and can't have a detachable magazine and a pistol grip on the same rifle!! I feel so safe here.

    Orange Beach (small city in Alabama) offers free pistol training class from time to time for residents & small fee if non-resident. I think that's a good option. If required for permit then free familiarity class, otherwise should be optional.
    They have Talked about Doing something like that here go renew your DL,Plates and CCW all at same time that would be nice

    The CHL course my wife and I took was $120 each, including range fees and ammo, photos and fingerprints. Some certified instructors charge as little as $75 I believe, not including the extras. For most Texans, the license will cost $140. But for senior citizens or indigent Texans, the cost is only $70. For active/honorably retired peace officers or active/retired judicial officers, the cost is $25. For elected felony prosecuting attorneys, the fee is waived.

    To be indigent in Texas (to get the "reduced" fee), the threshold is pretty low: According to 2003 federal poverty guidelines, you may be considered indigent if you are single and you earn $8,980 per year or less. The maximum income for indigence classification is $30,960 for a family of eight.

    Expensive in Texas? Yes. Worth it to us ($520 total)? Yes! Too expensive for many - yes, unfortunately.

    Wish I lived in PA (except for that darned snow!)

    They the powers to be in most Cities Towns Out Posts They really don't want anyone to have a CCW.

    But if they are forced to allow it then they want to make as much money as they can of you getting it.

    The whole system stinks it's really a shame.

    Before shall issue passed, the sheriff was in my trophy shop and I asked him about getting my permit. He said "Sure, bring $50 down to the station and we'll get you fixed up".

    When the law passed, the state allowed county sheriffs to charge up to $100, so guess what ours went up to? Our sheriff is not a lawman, he is a politician.

    $100 training
    $52.50 CBI check
    $100 sheriff's dept.

    I just wonder if our Founding Fathers wanted us to have to pay to defend ourselves?

    I feel somewhere we got soldout.

    It costs $10,000 in Thailand and around $30,000 in Malaysia just for the permit. A Glock goes for about $3000.

    And yes, we earn $7.50 an hour at Burger King too. So guess who's got the guns down here

    NH.. $10. That's it. As long as your criminal record is clear and you have no mental problems, $10. No training, no printing, no nothing. Fill out your form, drop it at your local PD, and a few days later you're ready to go.
