Why Get a Permit?

“Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it”

Obviously, the #1 reason to have a CCW permit is for the protection of yourself and your family! Having the option of carrying a concealed firearm for protection is invaluable. Concealment gives you the element of surprise (Principles of Tactics).

When I considered getting a permit so long ago, I remember reading the story of Timothy McVeigh and where he and Terry Nichols were assembling the bomb used in the Oklahoma City bombing. Early in the morning, they were in a parking lot of a nearby lake putting the bomb together when they were startled by a grandfather and grandson launching a boat to go fishing. Timothy McVeigh later commented on the interruption, “If either one of them had come over to the truck to say hi or to befriend them, he would have executed them both on the spot.

My thoughts – “NOT ON MY WATCH!”

The other ‘Essential Reasons’ to Get a Permit –

Non-Lethal Defense – The #1 NON-LETHAL self-defense tool you have in your arsenal is your handgun! Over 2.5 million times per year, the simple show of a handgun is enough to end hostilities.

Legality – YOU are more legal to have any firearm in your presence when you have a CCW permit. Police officers know you’ve been through a gun safety, familiarization and handling class and that you know how to safely handle a firearm, and finally, that you have passed the background checks and your not a criminal. With certain jurisdictions in Clark County if you have a gun in your vehicle, you can nearly get arrested, but having a CFP permit makes that okay.

Reciprocity – With just a Nevada CFP permit, you can carry concealed in 32 additional states.
One of the wallet cards you get in class (created and laminated by me) will show you which states you can carry in.

Option – It gives you the option of carrying concealed. Without a permit, you can’t do that.
It gives you the OPTION of taking action in self-defense . . . Robbery at a store your at? With a concealed handgun, the bad guy doesn’t see it and you have the option of pulling it to save your life or that of other people. Without a concealed handgun to protect you, YOU DON’T HAVE THAT OPTION! You are at the mercy of the assailant!
