    Question New guy from Tuscaloosa, Alabama

    Hey guys, been wondering around here for a couple days, and have found this is a great site with really helpful people. I am looking to get my first pistol (SA xd9sc) and hopefully my carry permit.

    I was wondering if anyone else has experience getting a permit in Tuscaloosa County? The application asks for a reason for the permit and of course Alabama is a "may issue" state, so I was wondering what a "reasonable" reason is? I have no specific reason further than protecting myself and family. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

    I just had to use that one, no particular reason...

    Defense of self and family sounds like a good enough reason for me.

    Welcome from South Carolina.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
