Just got my Indiana lifetime permit a few weeks ago. There are four choices on the application form asking why you want the permit:
1. Hunting and/or Target Practice
2. Personal Protection
3. Firearm Dealer
4. Retired Police Officer
Just check the "Personal Protection" box if that's your reason. No other explanation is necessary.
tell them that cops are lousy shots and that you think you can do better...
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

In Alabama it's "may issue" and that's what I put with no problems.

The firearm is safety equipment / insurance:
get flu shot, hope it's not needed
buy life insurance, hope it's not needed
have homeowners insurance, hope it's not needed
you have a fire extinguisher at home, hope you never need it,
wear a seat belt, hope you never need it
carry a pistol, hope you never need it

A friend just got his couple weeks back, hell.............was till just a couple of weeks ago they were making it sound like you had to have photo taken also but someone called them on it and they dont do it now.......mind you they werent disallowing the permit w/o photo they just made it sound like you needed to get it taken as part of the whole deal...........made it to the newspapers for a couple days anyway.

My license does state on it that I have a "Lifetime Pers Protect"
Did the paperwork, both for city and state, return tomorrow with the m/o or cashiers check for proper amounts...........no where did they ask " why I wanted the license" neither form......my friend swore he had to give reason but he did go to sheriffs office, whatever !!
Anyway thanx for all the replys and Im looking foward to learning more thru this form and others I have found.............
ps..............went ahead and checked the box for lifetime personal protection permit, what the hell...........LOL
FYI- It took 9 weeks to get my Indiana permit.
I am also from Indiana and when I applied for my permit back in October, I don't remember that question being on the application. If it was, I just put down for personal protection.
Welcome to the forum. Yes, the answer is "Personal Protection".
