Is it possibile to get your local permit issurer to change your permit status from restricted to unrestricted? I applied for my permit last year and recieved it around March of this year, and it is restricted to "Hunting and Target Shooting and Transporting a Wepon Therefor" now since I went through all the paperwork and paid all the fees and waited 11 weeks it seems like I should have a right to a CCW permit (you would think). I was thinking about writing my local county Judge (he is the one with the ultimate say, and is also the issuing officer) and polightly ask him to remove the restrictions from my permit what do you think would be the outcome of such letter? Also what should I say(how should I word it), to convince him that I want-need-would like to have a CCW permit. I have talked to other people in my county and they have said that if anyone asks while your carring to tell them you were target shooting earlier, now this seems feasable since it says "transporting a wepon therefor", but I would rather have a CCW permit that way theres no hassles if questioned.
