I was just sticking my 2 cents worth in another post about the cost of a permit when it got me to wondering about this. Some states have requirements to have some sort of training to get a personal protection permit (concealed carry or CHL's in other areas ect.) each state calls them something different. My state does not require any training. I can see that it is good in some ways and bad in others. For example: It makes getting a permit quick and easy because it is only a matter of filling out a little paper work. This is mostly personal convienence because taking a class would be near impossible for me given the the fact that I work a 13-1 schedule (work 13 days and have 1 day off) that makes it hard to make a class when I am only off work every other Sunday. Bad in the fact that some guys are getting permits that should really be getting some classes before they carry a gun. Also like I mentioned in the other post it does not allow for some other states to honor an Indiana permit. Ohio for instence does not honor my permit because our issue system is not similar to thier own issue process in that there is no class or re-class required every few years. Just curious what others may have to say on this matter.
