    Likewise. I checked "Serious" because there wasn't a category that said "Suspect". I'm not "Frowning" and I don't look "Menacing", I just don't look all that good.

    The Sheriff's Office were I got my Ohio permit used only an overhead light for the lighting of the photo. This created shadows on my face and really darkened my eyes.

    I am going to start smiling on all my license/permit photos to give the impression of "general-all-around-nice guy".

    Mine looks like I just escaped from Sunset Acres and am antsy to get back to my old ways.

    Mine is by far the WORST photo I've ever taken. It was 90 degrees in the room where my CHL class was, and I was hot and sleepy. In my photo I look like a drug-addled hausfrau. Ugh!

    mine looks like Tim McVeigh.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I voted pleasant, but...... after a 2nd look at my permit photo, "go ahead, make my day" smirk comes to mind.

    So, this might be kind of fun and useful all at the same time. In this poll I'm asking you to take a look at the photo on your CC permit, or better yet ask someone at your house to give you their opinion of your photo.

    If you were involved in some sort of incident with a firearm, I suppose it might be possible for the media to get access to the state's photo of you that's on your CC permit. That possibility probably varies from state to state? So everytime your story is on the news your permit photo would likely be splashed across the TV screen at the same time. So, would your photo help you or hurt you in the eyes of the "court of public opinion"?

    I just re-looked at my photo and I'm thinking that they'd say I looked "pleasant", I'm also wishing that I'd had a comb , (HEY, it was windy that day)
    I wish I had a comb that day also, it was the middle of winter in Michigan and I was the first one in our class to get my picture taken. My hair is a mess, the picture makes me look like a mall shooter!

    Voted other. They would describe me as the most handsomest!

    I had to vote menacing, I haven't the fogiest as to why I look the way I do. I'm really a very nice guy that smiles all of the time.

    My utah one has me fresh after a haircut, and in a good mood. I look clean cut and pleasant.

    On my FL and ME permits I have a serious face since they are the same passport photo. My PA LTCF is a semi-serious smile. My NH does not have one.

    I look like a YUP in mine. Collared shirt, good haircut, easy-going grin.
