Question You think it's too late to obtain a CCW license?

I've been trying to learn as much as possible about the ccw license and guns themselves. I've gone to the range once and a friend of mine taught me some things as well. I really enjoyed learning and shooting his guns. I want to be able to go to the range as a hobby as well as carry it.

I feel confident I have the maturity and responsibility of owning a firearm.
- I will say I am only 20 years old too.

My question is, after all of these incidents and concerns. Do you guys think I still have an equal chance in acquiring a CCW?

My CCW has expired but I'm gonna try to get it renewed in about a week. I've been worried about the same thing.. whether or not it's gonna be difficult to get one after the new year. We're even having a difficult time finding ammo around here. All of the local stores are sold out.

21 to carry, 18 for a firearm ID card.

Age doesn't matter though. He lives in Massachusetts which is a may issue state. He's not going to get it.

"May Issue"

Sorry but in my honest opinion I would not waste my time at this point, there is no way youre going to get it. I think you would need to prove a "need", for example running a cash business.

In some states open carry is illegal. When I lived in AZ I would open carry all the time, especially on my bike.

5. You will be required to justify your request in writing. Make your request as detailed and specific as possible. Valid reasons for requesting a concealed handgun include personal threats, being in a high-risk profession or routinely carrying large amounts of cash.

Well I think I may be S.O.L I guess unless I run a cash business like Nt_Loader said, I won't be getting it anytime soon. You think they might consider it justifiable where I live? I live in a woodsy town where there are bears, fishercats, wild animals, etc? A neighbor called in about 2 years ago there was a bear 2 streets down from my house.

I want to be able to use it for recreational use as well as for my safety.

No. You live n Massachusetts. They are not going to issue you one, even after you turn 21. It sucks to hear, but you live in a horrible state for gun ownership.

Update!!!!

I took my LTC Class on Tuesday night and I passed both oral and written exams. My instructor who is also a cop said I will be getting my class A when I turn 21(on October) but the thing is they are going to issue a class A restricted because they are trying to get rid of class B. if I can give a good enough reason to get the class A UNrestricted they will issue it to me.


On my 21st birthday I will update this thread again. THERE IS STILL HOPE! Lol
