There is legislation in the Arizona legislature that, if passed, would allow those with a Concealed weapons permit, to carry their firearm into bars and resturants.

Why not? It's not criminals leave their guns behind when going to restaurants. I think VA just passed this one too and I hear it's out of committee in AZ. I carry everywhere I don't see a metal detector, so I'd be happy to no longer have to worry about printing in a restaurant.

You're 100% correct. I've had a pistole permit for almost 30 years that's restricted by Nassau PD to carry only to and from the range and hunting. As you said, just try to get a full CCW in NY. I tried to have it switched after 25 years telling them I've had it for this long, am a law abiding citizen, have had no problems at all after all these years and was told, basically, "too bad".

Exactly. All of those Liberal Democratic states have done a pretty good job of making sure that Law abiding citizens cant have guns. Only criminals get to carry them.

You want to be able to carry a gun with you all the time? Move to Arizona.

Also agreed with this statement.

I own firearms in CA, and there are more regulations on transportation/carry than you can count. There are some counties that are better than others, but its mostly impossible to get one. I've gotten by for years without the need to carry here in CA, but welcome the policies of AZ. I'm going to be spending more and more time in AZ over the next year, and moving there within 2010 if all goes as planned. I am going to obtain a CCW permit as a non-resident soon.

To expand on above, a few questions.

Once you obtain your permit, is it “tied” to a particular gun or can you carry any handgun you own? Do you have to tell the state which guns you plan to carry?

Can anyone recommend a course in the Phoenix area?

Once you get your CCW you are OK to carry any gun you own including Class 3. AZ does not ask what you carry.
You do know that open carry is legal and requires no permit?

While I like the idea of surprise by keeping the weapon concealed until it's time to shoot. I think your imagination is getting the best of you.

Do you ever get a real feeling of afraid when thinking of scenarios like the ones you've described? If so, you may need to see a therapist.

You can still conceal with full leathers and other gear. But, all the gear does pose problems. Of course the "close to home bar hoppers" don't face that problem. But, then they aren't true riders, they're just wanna' be's!

Be safe.
