View Full Version : CCW Question

Hope this hasn't been addressed to death already, but my CCW class, scheduled for September 8, includes qualifying with TWO different weapons. Since I own only one, can I rent a gun like the next one I plan on buying and shoot with that? I won't be buying for a few weeks.
My concern is that the CCW will list a serial number as part of the gun description, and of course, that won't be from MY gun.
Thanks in advance!

You have to have a blue card for the gun you are qualifying with. The gun has to be registered to you. The permit doesn't list serial numbers, just models. So if you qualify with a glock 22, you can carry any glock 22, as long as it is registered to you.

One thing I found out though. Husbands and wives can co register guns so they can both qualify with and carry the same gun

Ask your instructor. According to the changes that just went through, you need to qualify with any semi-auto you plan to carry, but now if you qualify with a revolver, and can carry any revolver. Your permit will still have a model for the revolver, but it is legal to carry any revolver. PLEASE double check this with your instructor, before taking my word as gospel. I believe the intent of having models on your permit is that you have to show an instructor you know how your gun works. With semi-autos there are lots of different systems, but with a revolver, they all basically operate the same. My instructor was nice enough to let me qualify with his Colt as well as my g27. Most instructors charge like $10 to add any addition guns to your permit, and I believe you can have up to 12 on file. This also may vary slightly from county to county. I hope this helps.

New changes goto into effect 10-01-2007.
CCW application submited before that are still under the old system (ie. revolver has to be listed, non-resident permits good for 3 years)

Under the new changes, revolvers are changed to a category (qualify with one, can carry any) and non-resident permits are good for 5 years.
