I am of two minds. I am a bit of an individual rights absolutist. You should be able to carry from the word jump.
But I also like equipment and training requirements. $1000 for a gun and holster and ammo. $1000 worth of decent training. Just spitballing it. And more training and practice after that. Not just the $200 training class that some places make you do before issuing a CCW.
But I am very much against the government mandating that requirement. In my perfect world you require yourself to invest in that. No one tells you to. Like I said yesterday.
My perfect world and the world we live in are two different things. A bit of a contradiction.
I err on the side of zero regulation and Vermont style carry. And I don't lose any sleep over some jurisdictions with reasonable extra shall-issue requirements. NONE of those requirements in any state has people taking $1000 worth of training with $400 worth of ammo (assuming $500 gun and $100 holster). Not to my knowledge.
I need to take more and varied training classes. Like Masaad's, for one.
(And that $1000 is a starting point. But I like learning new things)
From an Away Game... - From discussion elsewhere... This is the single best thing about striker fired handguns. Like rifles, nobody can tell at a glance if they're cocked or not....
