I can believe that itís necessary for the government to grant me a right.

Carrying concealed without a permit is a felony in some places.
Then you can loose your rights to own ANY guns.

Well, I was 65 when I first got mine, so don't feel too bad. Been carrying for 7 years now.
I don't know what took me so long either. Thank Sandy Hook for getting me back in to firearms. 90% of the firearms I own were purchased in the last 7 years too.

Congrats, OP! Welcome to the club. Don't skimp on training if you haven't already. Many of the classes are loads of fun in addition to skill building.

I try my best to not go anywhere that posts no carry... it took some effort and some compromise but I'm almost 100% supporting places that allow me in with my gun. The exception is the local brewery but that was TABC, not their choice. Since covid started they now "can to order" for curbside pick up! (So I can call them to bring it out without removing my gun)

I got my CO permit back in about '97. The county Sheriff was about to run for re-election
and was told, politely but firmly, if he wanted to get re-elected, he had better start issuing
permits. He set up an application that was SEVEN pages long, three personal references,
included an interview and took over sixty days. My permit was (IIRC) number 66 in the
county. - - - Last time I looked, that county alone had over 14K permits.

One of the nice things about living in AZ.

Never too late!

Now you get to experience the Drawer Full of Holsters, the Wal-Mart Perp Walk, and a few weeks or months of low-level paranoia before you get it all sorted out...

Getting the permit is great. I had a TN carry permit for 20 years. Carrying is another thing. When I first got my permit I couldn't stand any weight on my belt. I ended up carrying a J-frame in a rear-pocket holster for my first 4 years. Gradually I built up to bigger and heavier guns. Now, at age 65, I carry a full size, all steel 1911 in a OWB holster every waking minute of my life. Welcome to the club.

It was nice when they invented permits in Texas. We were carrying guns anyway.

Yeah you were!
Now what? You and the boys need to get to work before the entire state has signs up saying ďAustin City LimitsĒ.

Congratulations, now you need a good quality holster and gun belt to make a solid platform to carry your weapon everyday.

Good for you! I got my first back when Tennessee required you to be bonded if you got a carry permit. That has been gone for quite awhile.

I don't know how long initial permits are issued for but my last renewal is good for 8 years. That was three years ago. When it expires I'll be 83. I'll make the decision whether to renew or not when that rolls around.
