Well good luck from what I read there is nowhere anyone in California can really use their CCW Weapon. let alone carry it anywhere other then in their backyard.

Then if they really do even draw it their in for going to Court if anyone cries about it.

California being so Ant-Firearm I would not wish to chance a CCW in that pink State.

You'r carry weapon

How many States require you to submit you'r carry weapon for inspection? And are you limited to this one only weapon for carry?

Michigan has a pseudo-registration of handguns termed a "safety inspection" that must be done on handguns when purchased by residents. Thank the scumbag, idiotic, arrogant, good for nothing, unorganized, childish, crotch stain of America commonly known as the KKK for that one. Freaking idiots. Makes me vomit.

We are not limited to any amount of guns. Each handgun has its own inspection card.

We can carry as many pistols as we want.

It would depend on the county issuing the permit, as they may impose additional restricitons. However, CA actually has one of the least restrictive permits around, last I checked.

Congratulations CNC, good news to be sure!

As far as the safety inspection, I know at least MY course instructor did a cursory weapons and ammo inspection before we entered the range. He was just making sure everyone was using a safe weapon and said as much (i.e. no 300 year old, rust-caked relics & such). No limit here on the number or type of handguns we're allowed to carry - as long as they're HANDguns. Heck, there were people qualifying with range rentals, and every caliber from 22lr to .45LC.

inspection

all they do is make sure the oem safetys are working and that it has a 5# triger pull or more they just make sure it is a safe weapon for carry. some of you guys freak out about stuff like that i personally dont think it is that big of a deal. the only thing i dont like about it is i have to take time of from work to go get it done but thats what vacation time is for.

The gun you use during test in Oklahoma

In Oklahoma:
If you use a simi auto during the CCW test you can carry both a revolver or simi auto.

But if you use a revolver during the CCW test you'r stuck with only being allowed to carry the revolver.

Every State add their own little twists.:frown:

No such trigger weight or "Revolver Only" deal here with regard to the permits. However, those of us who qualified with DA or SA/DA revolvers were required to fire all shots in DA mode ... sorta funny since I was using my 642, what other choice did I have? LOL

But I'm allowed to carry any weapon I now own or should buy in the future whether it's revolver or semi auto.

glad

i am actually glad that they limit you to the gun or guns you qualified with that way your not carrying a 1911 one day and a glock one day or a sig one day you carry a gun your familliar with on a daily basis if you got in a gun fight and you were carrying your glock most of the time and switched to the 1911 and had to shoot but forgot to take the safety off well you might get shot in that situation you should always carry the same type of gun not switch around all the time remember you have one seconds if that to draw aim and fire if you forgot you had to take a safety off or something your going to be the dead one. i like the fact i can only carry up to three guns. you dont have time to be analytical in a gun fight.

I agree on carrying the same pistol every day. Calfornia allows 3 guns on the permit, my plan was to have 2 different Kahr P40's on there just in case my primary was out of service, I'd have a backup of the exact same gun that I'm familiar with. I think it's critical to carry the same gun always, get used to that holster, pistol, and method of draw. Too much switching pistols and holsters isn't a good idea. Get used to one setup. Repetition is the mother of perfection.

:confused:

Maintaining proficiency on your chosen weapon is a good thing, and something we all should strive for. Changing platforms will make things more complex.
However, having a government entity limit me on what I can and cannot carry is, well... unacceptable.
I cannot understand why anyone would actually desire that someone else make decisions for them.
As we are well aware, things like that are a very slippery slope.

Good luck. :smile:

I too am ''one gun carry'' and will suggest this to anyone as a better choice - well, IMO.

But to reiterate what others have said - I am damned if I wish for someone else to decide for me!!!! It's bad enough when states differentiate between semi and revo - but to have to slavishly follow a limited choice, because ''they'' say so - no thank you. If any training has been worth better than squat then the shooter/CCW should be aware of what is best, without having it mandated.

Just another erosion of freedom of choice.

you know you guys jump to conclusions you can have three guns at a time if you buy a new gun and qualify with it you can remove one gun and put a new one on the permit and i dont think the state is deciding what you can and cant carry you decide what you want to carry you just have a limit of three at a time for very good reasons. i only put two guns on my permit was going to go for 3 but decided whats the use of having 3 beside i might buy a kahr and i still have a open slot for that if i decide to do so but i think my XD 40 sub compact and smith and wesson 442 .38 spl is plenty of gun to get the job done if need be. its not like i want to walk around like neo in the matrix.
