Yeah i am not against some basic training before issuing a ccw. I think it is probably even helpful to most people. I think many crimes could be avoided with a reaponsible people carrying

To help some people better understand with how al issues their ccw. Some of the questions they asked before they even started the process is have I ever used a pistol before and what make and model. Then they asked have I ever carried before and in what state and what was the laws like there. Then they asked what kind of pistol am I going to be carrying the most. Then they asked for prior jobs, they use that to help determine if I have knowledge of any kind of weapon before and then they Ask for two ref that know I have carried and ask for character ref to what kind of person am I. Then they do a criminal background check.

Now I know this is not as extensive as most states but for me personally it doesn't matter if they made me take a class or two before they gave it to me. The reason is I believe that nobody knows everything and a class or two could help.

Like i said even if the process was longer and hard it doesn't matter. But I also understand how some people can be worried about the few states that seem to hand them out like candy cuz it worries me to. All I know it that I'm a very responsible person and I have handle guns for 20 years now.

Default Alabama ccw

In Michigan, even though I was a retired Army Military Policeman, had carried a .45 or 9mm pistol all over the US and Germany and Korea, was qualified every 6 months, and had a Top Secret security clearance, I was required to take a NRA class ($150), get fingerprinted ($25), get a passport quality photo ($25), pay a fee to the county for background checks ($120), and wait 30 days before appearing before the County Sheriff, a Michigan State Policeman, and a County Clerk for an interview before the license (not a permit, but a 5-year license) was issued. I moved out of the snow back to the Fort McClellan area, waited a year in order to qualify and gave the Sheriff's office 20 bucks and walked out with my permit. wktipton, SSG, USA, (Military Police), Retired.

so a poor widow has to choose between food on the table, tires on the car, or safety on the street.

I just moved from GA where it is the same as AL. $20 fee, background check reviewed my judge, judge issues permit. All in a 1-2 week period. Now in SC I have to take a class, pay for finger priest and photo, pay for application fee and wait will every agency in the state reviews my information. I heard it's atleast 90 days to review.

Yes, but a South Carolina CWP is valid in 31 states. That, for anyone who travels makes it much worthwhile.

That is true. Combined with the GA out of state I will have pretty much anywhere I want to go covered.
