    i'll end up getting one just because you can use it instead of a pistol permit to buy a handgun in NC

    If it is your right to bear arms, why do you have to apply to the state, get a background check and pay a fee for their permission to do so?

    Sounds like a priviledge that the state can grant or not grant as it sees fit.

    ...I'm just sayin'...

    :rofl:

    I'm probably going to get mine here soon. I just haven't gotten around to doing it. I don't have a noble or political reason for wanting it. More of a blanket reason. I want it. Oh and here are some benefits that come with it, cool.

    I pop mine out when someone asks for a photo ID, because GA permits are awesome. I don't know how other states do it, but instead of a photo of our face, it's our thumbprint. If someone complains, I just give them the thumbs up and tell them it's a photo ID: a photo of my thumb. Sometimes they keep bitching, sometimes they let it go.

    I got my carry permit so that I wouldn't be breaking the law by carrying concealed.

    I love when people ask why I carry. My favorite line right now is, "Because beating a man to death is too much work."

    That permit says Oregon on it, but your location under your av says Washington. Are you sure you have the right state's permit?

    I can't read, so it all looks like a blur of numbers and letters anyways.
