    You know, for a second amendment right, why does this seem such a huge accomplishment. It must be the fact that I am from CT. Either way I am hugely excited.

    Great !! [flag] The more responsible gun owners that are carrying the better !!
    Make sure to get out and practice.. Often.. It is a perishable skill.. People do get "rusty" over time without shooting..

    I was out shooting in the backyard with the kids yesterday, and couldn't believe how rusty I had gotten.. It had been a while..

    My permit is due to be renewed in May.. Will be 10 years since I first got it...

    Congrats again, and thank you for helping to keep our rights !!!

    If it was a right we wouldn't have to ask for permission to carry.

    Yep; the more of us that get permission from the government to exercise our constitutional rights tacitly gives them our blessing to decide what we can and cannot do, including using lethal force to defend our lives and property. The government does not get a vote in what I own and use to defend myself with; period. It may very well be them that I have to defend myself from so I'll be damned if I'll ask their permission for it. JMHO

    Do they offer a Utah class in your area? The Utah permit is honored in 31 states. We put on a Utah class once a month at my work and we are swamped every time. It feels so good to see how many people carry these days.

    Hopefully the laws will be changed soon and your home state will be recognized everywhere. I believe it is being tried to push through. I had to get my homestate and utah ccw to cover me in my state and surrounding states. Congrats on your permit!
