    Over 16 Million Now Have Concealed Carry Permits

    Quote: Last year, the number of permit holders grew by a record 1.83 million. This is more than the previous record increase of 1.73 million, set just the year before.

    6.53% of American adults have permits. Florida, Pennsylvania, and Texas each have over 1.2 million residents who are active permit holders.

    I collect Rimfire Firearms (.17 HMR, 5 mm Magnum, 5 mm Craig , 6 mm Flobert, .22 LR, and .22 Magnum), especially Mossberg's. I look for old, different, unique, or rare rifles and handguns in any rimfire caliber as well as parts. If you have anything in this category you want to sell or trade please e-mail me at fatboyflorida@gmail.com or PM me here on the forum.

    Yeah, but they most likely won't be as good a shot as you!

    We need our permits to be good nationwide and then the numbers will skyrocket. The Dumbo states will be forced to get with the program.
