Any advantage to Not Seeking a CCW Permit? [Update on Page 3] Login/Join

The paperwork for the license was submitted this morning.

Yesterday was a long day, but I found the CCW course to be very informative. Our instructor was a retired LEO, who was able to keep our attention for eight hours by adding practical advice and funny stories along the way.

I'm glad I took the class, and I'm already signed up for two others. My adult son asked if I would join him for a Basic Handgun course next Saturday. Although this is a repeat for me, I welcome the opportunity to spend some quality time with him. He just graduated from college, and said he thought it would be nice to develop another "life skill." In June, I am scheduled to take Advanced Handgun.

I appreciate the many insights offered on this topic.

Thanks, Jeff

Jeff, no children here; but I have had the chance to attend different classes throughout the years with my wife. Some of our best memories are on ranges during training sessions...

I can only think - how cool, to be able to do that with your son. Two HUGE thumbs up from me!

Thanks, Orive -

I was thrilled when he asked. Hopefully, it will be yet another way we can connect through shared activities.

Notwithstanding the possible advantage of not being in another governmental database, the comments thus far seem to weigh heavily in favor of obtaining a permit. Reciprocity seems to be the main advantage, as well as obtaining current instruction on the applicable laws.

I truly appreciate the helpful feedback. All things considered, it looks like I will be attending a class in mid-May.


I’m not sure what your paranoia is. When I read someone with “concerns about being in another government database”, it gives me pause. The state police database is only accessible from the statewide LINK system. Outside agencies, by statue can’t access it. It can’t be accessed by freedom of information act.

LINK is accessible by state dispatch centers or police mobile data terminals. Beyond local and state law enforcement, the government can’t see you have got a permit unless you show them.

“The Government” already knows that you purchase a gun with a required NICS check. You can buy face to face to remain off the grid, but to live may kind of life, I would not worry.

At the end of the day, get the permit.


These "government databases" can and have been hacked. Nefarious liberals have done so in the past and leaked names, phone numbers and addresses of CCW holders. It's not common, but it certainly CAN happen. It didn't stop me from getting a CCW permit, but it was and is in the back of my mind.

The permitting process in Kentucky was incredibly fast. Took the class on Sunday, submitted the application online to the KSP on Monday, and the permit will be available for pick up from the local Sheriff next Friday.

This evening, I'll be joining my adult son who is taking a four-hour Basic Handgun course. He wanted to just join me at the range sometime, but I asked him to get some instruction first. His uncle, a competitive shooter who competes nationally, is also joining us to support him.

I'm already signed up for an Advanced Handgun class next month at my local range (Shoot Point Blank), but after that, I'll be looking for some quality training programs in Kentucky. Suggestions are welcome.

Another often overlooked, misunderstood subject with a lot of bad information and advice is self defense law.
I've found this guy's basic book and the daily blog posts (free) to be very worthwhile reading. Understand what's in his book and you'll know more than 90+% of gun owners.
An accurate expression, the problem isn't what you know, it's what you know that isn't so, describes most.
