    Hello from a CCW newby in Alabama

    Hello everyone. I am new here and to this CCW thing. To be honest i am not really sure what it is other than just concealed carry. I have been a state permitted carrier since i turned 21 and was legal to do so. I always feel more comfortable with one of my trusty firearms at my side. Is the CCW permit a nation wide license or ????? I am basically firearms lover and have been for many years. I love to shoot and hunt as well as just admire a nice firearm. I recently had to sell off some of my guns but now i am working on a new collection, I had 4 handguns and 3 long guns left from my original collection that hold sentimental value way beyond a selling value. My newest to the collection is a Mossburg model 88 self defense shotgun and a new Smith & Wesson M&P 15. I hope to add many more but most of all i hope to make some friends here that are like minded and share my passion for firearms.

    ccw are only state issued, but most states will honor yours, I know all of your surrounding states do, as does Ky. Ill. won't . If you travel, check ahead as each state have different laws for ccw. a good site to check is www. handgunlaws.us. Congrats on your ccw.permit

    Welcome from the big town down the road.

    Your AL (county) permit has some reciprocity, but several states don't recognize it. You can get an out of state license from another state to get a bit more coverage. Utah and Florida are probably the two most popular states to get them from.

    Make sure you stay up to date on the laws. Handgunlaw.us is a good way to do that.
