I plan on going for my handgun permit soon, I know they are going to ask why on the forum. The only reason I want a handgun is for target practice and possible competition shooting in the future, are those two feasible to say on the application form?

Are you talking about a Handgun Permit or a Concealed Carry permit? I got a concealed carry permit for personal protection. I don't have to have a permit to own a handgun. If you are just going to use it for target practice and competition, I don't think you need any type of permit, at least not where I live.

He lives in Syracuse, N.Y.--we need permits.

I merely stated that I wanted the permit in order to legally inherit several revolvers from my dad. He ended up passing away 3 months later...

Stating that you want one for "protection" probably isn't the best idea. The reasons you listed, though, are good ones; just be honest. If you need any help, let me know; I just went through all this.

Even in the now blue state of Pennsylvania I was able to get a ccw permit by just stating "personal protection". I believe I stated the same in Alabama. I feel for you NY state residents. But I'm sure that you are much safer there. :devilsidesmile:

I love the great commonwealth of Kentucky. No permit to own or buy a handgun, no waiting period (save for calling in your info to Big Brother), and open carry is allowed. Kentucky is the polar opposite of California when it comes to firearms.

Here in NH we don't need a permit to purchase or own a handgun or to open carry. We do need one for concealed carry but it is a must issue state so it is really simple to get $10 and about a week and a half and you will have your permit in hand.

Put for defense, or just say you want to exercise your 2nd amendment.
