In a word, YES, it's worth it!
For one, it shows that you are doing everything to comply with the law and have taken the minimum state mandated training necessary to legally carry a gun.
Second, it's been shown that as more people legally carry guns, the violent crime rate of that location goes down. So do your part to help lower the crime rate! Get a CCW and start carrying!
Third, our permit is now recognized in about 28 states now and there are not many other states that can say that.
And finally, while we don't have a Vermont or Alaska style carry system, every state has restrictions on concealed carry and ours isn't much different than most other states.
