Some say everything gets hightened or better. But not really. Same senses you just don't rely on them as much when we use our eyes. We get kinda lazy but blind ppl use all their senses. My husband can tell when we drive under something like a tunnel. He feels the difference in the air. Hears sound echoing off the ceiling. Smells it.

When he shoots he uses the table as a guide. Hears other guns firing to his left and right. He knows which direction to point and not point his gun and yes he keeps his finger off the trigger till set and ready to fire. Absolutely no reason why he shouldn't be able to CC.

No he doesn't. But I do. I didn't think they did CCW's for blind ppl. Guess it's a state by state decision and that's how this conversation started for me...lol. Would love for him to be able to CC. We own our own business and he stays late to our office to meet with people who are losing their homes to foreclosure. We are property investors and although their isn't any cash in our offices there are t.v.s and computers and he wears a damn Rolex that he can't even see...haha.

Anyways I worry about him being able to protect himself and believe he should be able to CC...he is also in a wheelchair so it's not like it would be able to defend himself physically like other blind men can do.

If I were you, I'd look into your laws in your state. Who knows? Maybe it can happen. I wish you the best of luck.

Where I live you can be ticketed for driving under the influence on private property, I doubt this would be any different.

If it's so safe and he's so good, why not drive on public roads?
Is he licensed to drive?

Serious questions. I'm really trying to see your/his side of this but it just does not appear to be logical.

What does your "serious questions" have to do with the topic? His ability to drive has nothing to do with his ability to shoot and CC...
