You fill out the form - include a check for $40.00 - and they will send you a new license good for another 4 years. You have to do this every 5 years.

    It was taking me forever to get my license after I applied for it so I called the Kentucky State Police Office. They said that so many people where applying for KY Licenses that they were way behind on their background checks and getting the licenses issued. Ky runs a background check on you through the KSP database, the FBI database and the ATF database.

    The guy I was talking to said he would check to see if all of my background checks were done. He said they were, and that I passed all of them, and he would put me in the computer to issue my license and I should have it in 5 days. Sure enough I got it 5 days later. My License number started with 645,000.

    You wouldn't believe how many people in Ky are getting licenses. By state law - only 40 people can be in the 8 hour class that you have to take before you can apply for a license. I live in a town of 25,000 people and it's hard to even get into a class. They offer 8 classes a month here and all of them are always full.

    The class I was in had 40 people in it and 31 of them were women. You wouldn't believe how many women are getting a CC License in Ky.

    Their are 3 LGSs here and they are so busy that you have to stand in line when you go to them to buy a gun and etc.

    I went to Walmart today CCing and I saw a woman there CCing. When she went to put her baby in the baby seat in a shopping cart her shirt pulled up and she was right hip, OWB CCing. After she got the baby into the cart she noticed her shirt had pulled up and pulled it back down to cover her semi-auto hand gun.

    When I got go the tobacco store here to buy cigarette the girls behind the counter there are OCing, OWB with pistols.

    Almost all of the states will accept a KY CC License. Kentucky State Police: Concealed Deadly Weapons
    I dont think you can go by that number.

    You say you got yours in may and your number starts with 645k

    I got mine under a month ago, my number starts with 606k....


    And ky permit is good for 5 years.

That is what I was implying. Sorry for the confusion.

    ETA: I looked at the linked government report, and Kentucky only has around 170,000 active carry license issued.
    I found this: http://www.kentuckystatepolice.org/c...ual_Report.pdf

    According to this, There have not been 645,000 licenses issued - but - my license did start with 645,000. I assumed that was how many had been issued.

    I changed it to 5 years in my post - hit the wrong key. I don't know how they number them then. Your number should have been higher that mine it looks like.

    Maybe the first three numbers show what county, or town, you live in? I live in Murray.

    I find the numbers for PA to be very surprising. I thought it was a left-leaning state.


    WA is surprising as well. Good for them!

    Is this an IL that I never heard of? IL doesn't have a carry permit....at all.

    One of the 2 places in my town that offers CHL classes, stays booked. They put 120-140 people through a month, so at that rate I'll say Texas will catch up to first, where we belong. ;)

    GAO seems to have a problem with their math in some cases.

    Taking the GA numbers, 600,000/6,906,000 does not equal 11.5%, it's 8.7%

    Keep in mind that about 11+% of FL permits are non-resident, as are about 50% of UT.

    Now just how did Iowa edge out SD as the highest percentage of age eligbles with permits? Did they really issue that many in the last year (94K to 243K)??

    I'm in PA. I know a large amount of people with a License to Carry Firearms. I'm the only one who carries each and every day. Really, I'm the only one I know carries at all.

    As of 2011, Kentucky issued 220,000 permits and renewed 168,000 permits. Not sure how many are active but 645,000 seems a bit high!

    I wonder why the numbers are so low. You'd think more people would drink that flavor of KoolAid.

    I started talking about these percentages with people after the CO shooting. Several people asked why noone in the theater was armed? Well, if you look at the % population ellegible, how many have permits, how many of those carry regularly, and then consider the demographic of whatever location you are in (Big city-more liberal, country, target audience of location) ... The chances of any other people carrying can be quite small.

    Lets keep educating people and chance the numbers more in the publics favor, and against the bad guys.

    There was a month long wait in my area.

    I've made that same point on numerous forums, including this one. I did the math. Taking aside the fact the theater was posted, the best likelihood would be only two permit holders present, and high possibility neither of them would be carrying.
