    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.

    Just check the box, there isn't an interrogation :)

    shall issue state-- just put self defense...it won't matter anyhow

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

    no different than other things

    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

    They do not ask you why, they can't, we are a "shall issue" state. They will ask you if you want a concealed carry permit or hunting/target permit.

    Thanks for the reply...................JHoff

In fact, no one said a word about my application other than a 'thanks' when I handed the clipboard back. Make sure you take advantage of the lifetime permit as we're the only state to do such and the rumors have been circulating that it will be going away in 2010.

    Best of luck!
    Here in Evansville wayyyyyy down south of ya I have to give an answer as to why, there is a box to check as to what type ya want, target, Personal protection etc. but they do ask as to the reason.
    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.

    The Indiana State Police Application For Handgun License requires you to select one of the following because it determines the fee you pay:
    Type of Handgun License
    4 Year Hunting and Target $5
    4 Year Personal Protection $30
    Firearms Dealer - Fee Exempt
    Lifetime Hunting and Target / No Current License $25
    Lifetime Hunting and Target/Current Valid License $20
    Lifetime Personal Protection / No Current License $75
    Lifetime Personal Protection/Current Valid License $60
    Retired Corrections Officer - Fee Exempt
    Retired Police Officer - Fee Exempt

    My license does state on it that I have a "Lifetime Pers Protect"

    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.

    Life-Time license here, they never asked me for a reason at all. All she asked was what kind and I told her "personal protection, life-time please".
