In Pennsylvania it's called a License To Carry Firearms (LTCF) and PA is a "Shall Issue" state. In other words they do a background check and if they find nothing wrong, no violent history, you're not drunkard, and haven't been convicted of a few specific things, you are issued your LTCF no problem, no training.How many of you out there have a Concealed Carry permit? Those of you that do, was the class difficult? When you had to shoot, what was the distance? How long could you take to qualify. I'm thinking about doing it, but the price is a bit pricey.
All the info you could want about concealed carry classes, permits, laws, issues, posted businesses, etc. in Kansas is available at http://www.ksccw.com. Nice group of people too!How many of you out there have a Concealed Carry permit? Those of you that do, was the class difficult? When you had to shoot, what was the distance?

Good luck in the class. I wouldn't take a gun I hadn't fired to the shooting portion. I would just do it with the .22 and then go shoot the .357 later. Depending on where the shooting portion is located they might have another range you can go shoot on while you wait for the others to finish their shooting test.I have decided to do it. The classroom portion is set up for this Saturday. The shooting portion is Sunday. It's nice to know I could shoot my .22 and not my .357. But I think I will shoot my new gp100. Never shot it and I am anxious to try it out.
The cost of the classes is $110 and the state gets $110 and the sheriff gets $40. The license is renewable in four years at a cost of another $100. The only reason I am doing it is because we travel in an RV. Just piece of mind.
Regards to you all,
x2 for Texas. Super easy class and well worth it. Cost for me for license and class came to $170 total.Glad to hear that you want to make a difference!!! The classes are easy...the money isn't really that much, and the potential for good is worth every penny of it....go for it!!!! Shooting test is close ranges...combat ranges...and easy to qualify....there just isn't a downside....
