    It be best to get legal advice from a firearms attorney or your local PD.


    Stop by the INTRODUCTIONS and say hello to all.

    Hey, I'm in Arkansas and my CCW is honored by Oklahoma and several other states. I am a big believer in getting the license. It saves me time and trouble when buying a gun and at other times. For example, about a year ago I was leaving the range after shooting most of the guns I own. I had 12 guns in my truck, 6 of which were handguns. Two of which were loaded. All of these guns were in the cab. About 3 miles down the road, I ran into a road block with 3 or 4 county cars and a couple of state guys. The officer came up to the window and I rolled it down. He said hello and that they were looking for a guy and asked if I had seen him ,could he see my license and did I have any weapons in my vehicle. I just laughed and handed him my CCW with my license and told him I had several. He looked at both licenses and said "ok, have a nice day". That was it. Its worth having the thing just for that possibility alone. Plus, I can carry when I'm hunting without worrying about the particular regs for that particular season etc. Mainly, I can keep my gun loaded and in my vehicle at all times without worry and I can take it and put it on my person if I feel its warranted. I say get it and put your mind at ease. Yes, you can keep your pistol loaded and on you. You just can't keep it in open view of other people.

    They were looking for a specific person and wanted to know if you were armed? I'd have rolled my window up. You weren't at a search for a criminal, you were at a damned Gummint Gun-Fishing Tournament! I hope you wrote a letter to the local papers.
