Act 281 Retired Lawman CCW.

Today I qualifed with my old duty gun, a Glock M19 9mm, and a M1911 .45 automatic under the requirements of Act 218. Act 218 was among legislation enacted after 9-11-01. The law says retired lawmen can carry on their credentials so long as they qualify annually. Today was the annually business.

I shot a 291 X 300 with the Glock and 282 X 300 with the M1911. The form certifying the qualifications lists the guns qualified on by make, model, caliber and serial number. I am good to go for another year.

The minimum score is 220 X 300 to qualify.

Adam

FIJI,

Yes, one can carry "on their credentials" ONLY the gun(s) they qualify with. I find that a bit odd since most states' CCW laws license the act of carrying, NOT a specific handgun, but Act 218 is what it is. Next year I will have several other handguns to comply with Act 218. I have a state CCW, but that is not generally reciprocial in other states. Act 218 goes above that reciprocity business, so I will carry the Glock 19 or 1911 out of state.

Adam

Wyoming statutes is actually no permit..unless you want to get a carry license which is of course good in other states but not all. If I get a license and qualify with a revolver..all I could carry would be a revolver. If you qualify with a semi auto pistol..you can carry anything. Doesn't make sense to me but that is the law here. The best is that there is no permit/license required to carry in the state of Wyoming..and I am pretty certain that is good for nonresidents too.

Nevada changed their CCW requirements awhile back. Before you had to qualify with the make and caliber that you intended to carry and that weapon went on the back of your permit. Now you qualify with a semi-auto and you can carry any semi-auto. Likewise with a revolver.

Yep, FL CWP is pretty much accepted in any state that has a CW at all, except NV, so NV and FL got into a pissing contest, now NV is NOT accepted in FL. FL also has an, other state's law reciprocal law, whatever you do to a FL resident in your state applies to your residents.

You see FL has a Concealed Weapons Permit not a gun permit, a very important distinction, so no provision for qualification and the reason is very simple, as you can carry a gun, automatic knife or a slap jack with a CWP in FL, without list or restriction except in specific places such as bars, church, police stations, etc.

The reverse is also true. A MA permit, if there is such a thing is not legal in FL.
