    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.

    I do think (and i may be wrong) washington state even thought it is very liberal, is still is one of the easier and faster process to get a permit. Utah permits are better to have and i know that the firearms academy of seattle (FAS) offers a class for 85. for a 4 hour class, but you get a Utah permit good in 33 states. I have had my washington license for a very long time, but the next 85. i have with nothing to do with it, I will be making a date with them.

    I carry in Texas with a CHL. It is a comforting feeling when my wife and I are out.

    I am licensed in Texas and carry more every day, but still not all the time.
    Excuse my ignorance, but what is the deal with the Utah permit good in 33 states. Does this mean I could get a Utah permit eventhough I am a Texas resident and then be legal in states that do not reciprocate with Texas?

    I agree that a class of some sort should be taught in the legal use of use of lethal force. However, it is my opinion that it is up to the individual to learn handgun safety. At some point a person who makes the conscious decision to carry simultaneously should be making the conscious decision to learn what they are carrying, with that, training should be
    accessible
    , often and easy to obtain, much like the renewal of ones car tabs.
