    In New Mexico, I had to pay 100 dollars for a 2 day safety/shooting course approved by the
    state, plus I had to pay the state 100 dollars for finger printing and back ground check, and
    then I got a 4 ...

    I have one and I like it for the history of the gun. I've seen it as cheap as about 60 dollars
    on line recently, I paid 100 for mine, and I've seen them higher than that too.

    I agree with what most have said. I carried in Houston, TX in the '60's before they had CCW, I

    small of my b...

    Ted Nugent has the right idea. Free men don't need CCW's, but I've got one any way. And the
    more men and women in America who have a CCW, the more the criminals will have to "wonder"
    who's carrying? L...
