There are a number of advantages to having a CCW permit, even in AZ. For one, you can travel by a school (within 1,000 feet) with a concealed handgun and not be in violation of the law. I believe there is also a section of the law that permits an armed person with a CCW permit to remain in a place selling alcohol so long as they do not consume any.
