    Y'know, it always struck me as kinda odd that more women don't have guns.

    Picture this: You have to go to a desert island. You (and those like you) will be half of the population. The other half will be people that are-- on average-- larger, stronger, faster, more agressive, more violent and statisticly more likely to cause you harm. Wouldn't you get a gun? Yep. Me too.

    We gotta convince more women to be armed.

    When my lady friend has accompanied me to several private clubs (that I hold memberships in) and starts to shoot at 25 yards with a 1911A1; many men have suddenly remembered that there are chores that they need to go do for their wives.

    Its nice to have a range almost all to your self.

    I think it is great. My wife decided on her own to pack iron. Nothing funnier than the look on some bad a**es face when he figures out "OOPS! I don't have the upper hand, he/she does! And now I'm at their mercy, not they at mine."

    What does a CT 'permit' entail? Many of us live in states with no 'permits' required so I'm curious as to what it means. For instance, a person obtains a permit once. Do they have to obtain a permit every time they purchase a new firearm or is one permit enough? How long does a permit last?

    Ponycar, in the state of Florida you have to either attend a training class given by a certified instructor and that consists of classroom time and live fire exercises normally around 4 hours long or you have to have prior military or police training or such. You are then fingerprinted by your local authoritys and send it all off with a fee (around 130 bucks here) for processing. An FBI check is done and if all is ok you are issued the permit. Takes approx 60-90 days. It used to be good for 3 years but Fla. has increased its duration to 5 years. Almost every state is backlogged.

    About 2 months ago the Dems made an attempt to grab the funding that pays for the processing of permits. Keep in mind that this fund is made up of money collected by permit seekers and not tax dollars. The Dems tried to intimidate Gov. Charlie Christ by threatening to take the money from some of his other much needed moneys if he didnt comply. He Vetoed their attempt and stood strong in the gap for our money and our rights. My hat is off to him for that. That would have put the brakes on permit processing. Hope this answers your questions.......

    OK, I didn't understand that you meant CCW 'permits'. I know that some states require permits to simply purchase firearms. I thought at first that's what you were talking about. SC has similar requirements for CCW (aka: CWP) permits. Thanks for the clarification! :D

    There's no permit required to purchase a pistol in SC. When you go to purchase the pistol, you submit to an instant background check. Your name and pertinent details are called into the state law enforcement division (aka: SLED). You're either told yes, no or wait... There is no fee for the instant background check. If you have a Concealed Weapons Permit the call is waived since your background has already thoroughly been checked. All Southeastern states operate this way to my knowledge.

    As for the cost of a Concealed Weapons Permit, you usually need to pay $60-100 for an instructor to certify you in firearms safety and range time. Next, you pay the state a $50 fee every 4 years for a concealed carry permit. We can legally carry in the glove box or other latched compartment of a vehicle without a permit of any kind. Carrying on one's person is what costs... :)

    Ponycar, in the state of florida even if you have a concealed permit you still have to have the background check. Only difference is that you can take the pistol with you right then and not have to wait the 3 day cool off crap.

    In Mississippi when purchasing a gun, the permit is itself the background check.

    You can purchase and walk out with the weapon and no background check. I believe that the theory is that since you don't get a permit here until the FBI background is complete, that the permit itself constitutes a sufficient check and proof of your being "okay" to purchase.

    Glad to know that the Peoples Democratic Republic of Connecticut has a permit. I was under the impression that the Wooden Nutmegs were as liberal and bad as the PDR of Massachusetts. It wasn't so bad when I was growing up in Kensington during the late thirties, forties and early fifties..... :) :)
