    New member from upstate ny

    Hello from the Adirondacks!!! I have been a firearm enthusiast and avid target shooter (used to shoot for a college team and had hopes for the Olympics one day...family came into play!). I have just purchased an LC9 and will be sending in my concealed carry license request into my county. QUESTION: I have to give a reason for my concealed carry request. I am a sales rep in a medical field where I have pharma type products. Should I use this reasoning (on the road sometimes 1500 - 2000 miles a week)? HELP! Looking forward to getting my license and becomming an active member on this board.

    Welcome! And as far as your question, your logic sounds... well, logical.

    Welcome from Wisconsin.

    Your reason sounds logical to me, too. That coupled with the fact that you transport pharmaceutical items. As far as they're concerned it could be drugs (maybe it is). I wouldn't be so flip as to say "because I want to carry", lol. That should be the ONLY reason a person feels they should need to have a carry license.

    Welcome to the forum from Virginia. The reason you gave sounds logical. You might also want to go to your states gun rights org for info as well. Link below:

    Welcome from Missouri.

    That sounds like one good reason to carry concealed....one of many.
