    I just applied for my ccw after finishing my class. Now starts my 6 month wait to hopefully get approved. Now must to decide what to buy. I was just wondering how do most police officers feel about ccw's. Are most for or against them? I would think they are against it since there are more armed people, but then again they are responsible people who applied with background checks.

    Majority are for them. That's why the majority of CCW instructors are cops/ex cops.
    Check the other thread below about this.

    It really depends on what state/city you live in.

    Most street cops are pro-CCW.

    In a survey done in '99, 92.7% of police think citizens should have guns for self-defense and sporting purposes. 65.8% think there shouldn't be a limit (ex. 1 per month) on purchasing handguns 97.9% think criminals would be able to get firearms illegally.

    2 minutes here with a CCW :)
    would be faster but that's as fast as the guy at the local shop can write up the receipt and get out the guncase.

    OR
    Not the waiting period for a firearm purchase, the waiting period to receive an answer or your chl/ccw licence/permit. But the same thing here its less than 5 minutes no wait period on purchase just single yes no page and phone call:hsd:

    Not a wait period, they're just slow. I'm in Michigan, wayne county, the biggest county in the state. Other couties take a month or two but mine is apparently backed up. Now I have plenty of time to decide between a 9mm or .40

    In utah the police won't know you carry until you get pulled over, which incase you have to notify them you have a ccw.

    I had a PA State Trooper tell me to carry as much as I can. I guess they look at it as, if we take the time to get the permit legally... we'll most likely be on their side. We can help them out if needed.

    It's nice to hear most police are pro-ccw.
    9 days in Macomb? Was this before the renewal rush? They told me this is the time when everyone has to renew after the first wave when they started to allow ccw's.
