    10 minutes of inconvenience? Here in Florida, it's a 3-hour (sometimes longer) class, fingerprints, passport picture, $117 (+ course fee - mine was $60), and at least a 90-day wait. You've gotta EARN a carry permit in Fla.

    Texas = 10 hours of class/shooting, finger prints, passport photo ... $90 - 120
    Then $140 to the state, up averages 4-5 months (these days) to get it in your hands. I'm in (CHL class) on the 6th of December. Permit is for 4 years, refresher for another 4 after that.

    I carry everyday here in Washington State that I dont go to school. I attend WSU Vancouver so I can't carry on university property unlike Utah. I am a supporter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, for those of you that agree that you can't stop school shootings with gun free-zones please support them.

    Since I live on the border of Oregon and Washington I am trying to get an Oregon permit as well. Oregon requires you to take a class to get your permit, which I have done. Any Oregon Sheriff can issue an out of state permit to a bordering state resident. Most Sheriffs will not do it though, and most that do are border counties that require that you live in a county that borders theirs.

    While I am apposed to most every form of gun control, I do think that the class that you are required to take in Oregon should be required in all states for a concealed carry permit. This course teaches invaluable information about carry laws, and when it is and is not legal to use lethal force.
