Thread: new ccw suggestions

  1. new ccw suggestions

    Im about to move from minnesota to louisiana, I dont have a ccw now but will definatley want to have one living in new orleans. Louisianas application process has a tremendous amount of red tape, is expensive, and I will have to live there for 6 months before I can even apply. Being a complete newbie when it comes to all things ccw Im wondering if anybody has any suggestions on the best way to cheaply fast track the whole thing and maybe bypass the louisiana hoop jumping. A big question to is do you have to already have a ccw to obtain a non resident permit from florida, utah, penn. (etc.)? suggestons?

    Florida and Utah can be applied for by mail. Check out the "resources" pages of this site for application info. Application processing time for both states is currently running around 100 days. If you apply in person for the Utah permit, I've seen applicatons processed in 80 days or so.

    As soon as you get to LA, come over to AZ for a weekend and get an AZ CCW. It won't matter (in AZ) if you live in LA as long as the AZ CCW training takes place in AZ and you're a US Citizen. $65 for training, plus $60 to the AZ DPS, and a couple/three months later they'll send you your AZ CCW permit to LA. AZ doesn't have resident/non-resident permits - as long as the training occurs in AZ, they don't care where you live. (New Orleans may have a different perspective, of which I am happily unaware.)

    After you're in the big easy for the required 6 months, begin the process to get one there... just a thought. I know I'd want to be armed anywhere in or around New Orleans.

    Uhhmmmm....If I read you correctlly, you're wondering if, as a resident of Louisiana, you could use a non-resident permit from UTAH as your only CCW permit (i.e., without ever obtaining a Louisiana resident permit). I don't know, sounds dicey to me. My understanding (limited tho it may be) is that your resident state is gonna want you to have an in-state resident permit. I'd check this out when you move to the Big Easy.

  7. thats exactly what I want to know. I had somewhat of a wild mispent youth, and though I was never arrested for, charged with, or involved in anything that would invalidate me from owning or carrying a firearm, I was arrested 3 times in 3 different states for riding freight trains (ie tresspassing, and theft of services) the charges where dropped once. got out with time served second, did 2 days of community service third. I have been a "productive member of society" for the last 10 years but louisiana wants official notarized true copys of court records, trial minutes and outcomes for each arrest. I dont have the faintest clue on how to go about getting these things and for darn sure dont have the $ to hire a lawyer for it. I have passed background checks numerous times over the years while either buying guns or applying for jobs, and none of my run ins with law enforcement ever involved anything to do with drugs,alcohol,violence,theft,sexual deviancy, or any other no nos besides being a slightly stupid adventurous kid.

    If you're a LA resident, as long as you weren't denied a permit or have one that's currenty suspended or revoked, then an out of state permit recognized by LA would suffice.

    Taken from the Louisiana State Police website (LSP - Welcome)

    R.S. 40:1379.3(T)(2) "A non-resident concealed handgun permit issued by another state is invalid in the state of Louisiana if issued to an individual who is a resident of this state has been denied a handgun permit or has been issued a handgun permit which is under revocation or suspension."
    I'm sure that there are instructors in Louisiana who can teach you the UT or FL class. If not, then as "AZSATT" recommended, you can take a road trip to AZ for their course.

    See the following. http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/louisiana.pdf

    Louisiana honors the following permits.

    Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas,
    Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina,
    North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington & Wyoming.

    So the answer is NO you do not have to get a Louisiana permit. With that being said, you may get some LEO who wonders why you would not get a state permit, but nothing they can do about it.

    Or... just move to AZ and enjoy your gun rights and some sunshine, as we're well above sea level.
