Thread: reasons for carrying concealed?

  1. reasons for carrying concealed?

    I'm new to AL...I've had my concealed carry permit in 2 other states where I've lived (VA and GA). I am applying for my permit, and it specifically asks the reasons for wanting to carry a concealed handgun. My main reason is for self defense. What is a more appropriate way to word it, instead of just putting self-defense? I'd appreciate some feedback. Thanks!

    At the top of site page go to COMMUNITY>FORUMS>DEADLY FORCE & THE LAW. Click on If a LEO asks why you carry? There's about 600 answers to that question. Please feel free to use any one. I personally like "When seconds count, Police are just minutes away".

  4. Try 'personal protection'.

    Our county's application used to have the same question. That's what the nice deputy told me to write in the blank when I asked him about it.

    The quickest and easiest answer is supplied in the law itself. According to AL law, 13A-11-73, you need a license to carry a pistol in your vehicle. Just add that you wish to carry in your vehicle.
