Got my CCW renewal today

Fill it out add a small check and it's a done deal. Although you don't need a permit to carry in Arizona anymore there are more benefits if you have one.

4. Not really

 

It makes more sense to retreat from a bad situation then it does to press on and force a deadly confrontation. I would never harm anyone to save my property anyway, just doesn't make sense.

16. When I OC on my rides through Saguaro National Park, it's not the gun getting my "juices flowing"...

 

it's the roller-coaster ride up and down the hills, the scenery and the wildlife, and my carbon-fiber-frame racing bike. The gun excites me just as much as my seat bag with my other emergency tools (that is to say, not at all). Unless needed, it's just additional training weight.

But hey, whatever gets you... motivated.

It's already warming up in Arizona; no need to wear extra clothes just to cover it up.

6. You didn't have to go in to have a mental eval? any traffic citations lately?

Maybe past due on your homeowners?

Forgot to rake your yard last week?

Have an old unused rake beside your house?

Drive an SUV?

13. Nope

 

I have had a permit for years. I keep it mainly because I don't need a background check if I buy another weapon, saves on nonsense.

10. Definitely still available in AZ, and...

... I believe they are available in the other states that don't require a permission slip from the government, as well. In AZ, the permit is still needed to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol (if you can wade through the blood running on the floors), or to purchase a firearm from an FFL without an additional background check (if you can't push your way through the crowds of terrorists buying them at the gun show with no permits), or to carry in other states that have reciprocity agreements with Arizona.

17. Main benefit being, the reciprocity in other states

I know that it's been interesting to compare the differences in the class composition when I've taken my two renewal certification courses.

In my initial class in 2002, only about 20 people - mostly male with 1 woman, 1 African American, and 2 hispanics (father and son)...3/4ths of the class were renewing their permits, the rest (like myself) were newbies.

First renewal class in 2006, about 30 people split abut 50/50 between renewals and first-time qualifiers - 8 women, 4 African Americans, 8 Hispanic (including one woman), 2 Asians, and the remainder white guys like myself.

Last year's class: 45 people about 1/3 renewals, 2/3 initial applicants. 15 women, 8 African American (2 women), 12 Hispanic (3 women), 5 Asians, with the remainder Caucasians. The class room was packed.

So what I've seen and been pleased with is increased female participation and increasing diversity in the pool of Concealed Carriers.

One quirk of Texas' CHL law is that if one qualifies with a revolver, one may only carry a revolver; if with a semi-automatic pistol, one may carry either a revolver or semi-auto. So the course instructor was encouraging them to qualify with semi-automatic pistols - not because there's a dang thing wrong with revolvers, but just so that they would have a choice later on.

Of the 8 or so who opted to switch to semi-autos, they had to borrow from other shooters who were willing to loan pistols...the range offered 25 rounds of ammo to each of them to allow them to shoot and familiarize themselves with the semi-autos and fully half of the other shooters offered the use of their pistols. Those owners who loaned pistols were asked to load magazines for the people who switched to semi's during qualification shooting. I loaned a Sig P225 to the cause

you realized guns are not the answer.

21. guns are the question Grasshopper

and essay ones at that. Multiple choice answers are always incomplete, making them wrong by omission.
When Sarah Brady said, "I don't believe gun owners have rights." the sage must ask "does that include her son?"
