    To those covered by H.R. 218

    As stated earlier, I got offered (and quickly accepted) a position in a State LEA. I will not be a sworn officer for some time (Iím guessing early 2012) as I will not be going straight to the academy.

    So here is my question, should I spend the $20 to get a new permit that will last for a year? I moved into a new county so I will have to put in a new app.

    My current permit expires on the 20th of this month; however, I can still carry on my Utah non-resident permit. I will be a sworn officer before the new permit expires. Do any of you see the advantages of a state permit when HR. 218 covers you?
    Please only respond if you are covered by HR. 218.
    Thanks guys!!!!

    The only reason that I maintain a state permit in addition in addition to 218 is that it allows me to carry a sap and other tools not covered by 218. In an active rather than retired status, that would probably not effect you.

    It's always good to carry a permit. You may find yourself in a position where you are producing you carry permit to someone whom you may not want to know that you are a cop. Here in AZ - at a gun store or gunshow for example I skip the check as a permit holder but don't flash my badge.

    Good stuff, I didn't think about those factors. I'll put that application in!

    I carry a Delaware CCDW permit as I can carry and conceal about anything, within reason, with it. It would also allow me to keep carrying should I ever fail to qualify for the yearly HR-218 Permit.

    Congrats on the job. Lots of LEO's around here have the state permit. Not that they need it, but when buying a gun it exempts you from the background check.And, if for some unknown reason that you get laid off, fired or whatever, you will still be legally able to tote.

    This.......

    Also in the State of Florida I can purchase and take possession of a handgun the same day and avoid the 3 day waiting period if I am a CCW holder.

    My outfit was strongly discouraged from carrying anything other than the duty weapon off duty. If I wanted to carry another handgun, it was good for me to have a permit. Also, I was super glad I had it when I resigned; otherwise, I'd have been SOL.
    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.

    Reasons, skip the background check on new buy, if some bad happens at work (you did not do anything wrong) and you get suspended for an investigation you can still carry, in my case the chief can come in at anytime and say you are no longer needed, you never know which way the political wind will blow, and ALWAYS HAVE A BACKUP.....
