    My mom wants to take a CCW class with me, and I told her she could use my P22, the place I am going to says requirements are "1 non-magnum handgun"
    well, a P22 is non-magnum!

    you can use a .22 but i highly recommend against it. here is why...

    if you take the course and pass with a .22, it shows that you can shoot with the .22. say you are in a situation to where you have to pull you gun and you either shoot the person harming you or you shoot a bystander. either way you are going to have a civil suit against you. they subpoena the instructor of the class that you got your ccw from and ask them if they can verify you have the ability to shoot *insert caliber you have as your carry weapon*. they can not say yes b/c you took the test with a .22. there goes all viability to the prosecuting attorney b/c they just came one step closer to proving you could not handle the gun you were shooting and should be held liable for the damage.

    dont say but but but but b/c that has happened

    If you hit the person that was harming you, and lethal force was justified, then you'll more than likely get off the hook. If you hit a bystander then may god have mercy on your soul, because nobody else will.

    edit - and they dont keep a record of what gun you shot with in NC, and I doubt that an CCW instructor would remember what gun you were using to qualify with...unless a shooting happened like 2 days after you got the permit, which in NC would still be around 3 months after you got all your paperwork in. Even then that's pushing it.

    what if the round goes through the person harming you and strikes someone else. just b/c youre more likely to get off the hook doesnt mean you will. in situations like this there are soooo many different things to worry about its better not to add more. i know personally i wouldnt take it with a .22. if you cant take it with a larger caliber b/c you cant handle the gun accurately enough to pass then i would suggest practicing. now if its b/c she doesnt own one i would ask some friends

    i'm sure every state is different. here they write down exactly what gun you shot. make, model and caliber. the instructor of my class was subpoenaed for that same exact situation. the lawyer was trying to prove the woman could not handle a .40 cal

    Did you read this BS from some AR-15.com keyboard ninja? :rofl:

    If you're justified in the shooting, all that shit doesn't matter.

    read above your post. do you think you'll get off scott from from shooting someone? at minimum there will be a civil suit from the persons family.

    if i'm not mistaken in CA they record the gun that you use for the record and they take a ballistic sample. In CA your CCW is only viable with the gun you qualify with...

    In TX, I believe you have to qualify with at least a .32 or maybe a .25. I'm sure .22's are not allowed.

    what kind of socialistic states are all u ppl living in that u have to take a ccw class?

    in sd u just fill out the app., get your temporary permit the same day, and wait about 1-2 weeks for the real deal while they do a backround check

    the best part is u can use the temp to purchase handguns

    :hsugh: Most states have a class requirement.

    Besides.. you don't have to take a class in SD. Whoop-te-doo. There's nothing else great about that place anyways.

    actually it is true.

    Different counties have different requirments, but you do have to register the gun you are carrying.

    In NY all your handguns have to be listed on the permit but no big deal to add them on to it.

    permit = no waiting 2 days
    temp permit = no waiting 2 days

    so u can fill out the app and walk out of a store with a .45 in the same afternoon - wether u get denied or not its too late
     
  25. You can list 3 guns on your CCW. But if you get caught carrying a different gun... :noes:
