I've been following what's happening with Illinois CCW on Illinoiscarry.com and it's entertaining, interesting and sad all at the same time.
Missouri: Well we're almost 2 months in to the Sheriffs running the issuance of CCWs. How's that working out for ya? It seems from what I've heard and read the most of the County Sheriffs hare issuing new CCWs and Renewals without many problems other than that the CCW IDs issued are on card stock and may or may not depending on the county be replaced at a later date.
MO SB 75 is just a week out from taking effect on August 28, 2013, but are we ready?
- No longer will it be necessary to get your CCW Endorsement from the Dept. of Revenue. All you'll need is to take the required documentation to the Sheriff of your county of residence and your CCW Permit will be issued by them once your background check is completed.
- Once issued your CCW will be valid now for 5 years instead of 3 years.
- CCW students will be required to only fire a minimum 20 training rounds and 20 qualification rounds from both a pistol and a revolver.
- There will now be a database maintained by the Sheriffs of all approved CCW Instructors in the state.
