which means, that ownership of new weapons will accompany those new licenses, all 500,000+ of'em plus the additional sales to current owners.

Doubling since 2007, the number of concealed weapons license holders will top 5 percent of Florida’s 19.1 million residents in a state that is number one nationally in licenses issued.
“Clearly it is a popular law and has been taken advantage of by a large number of Floridians who have acted responsibly,” Putnam said.
Florida has been licensing concealed weapons since 1987, when state officials took over authority from counties that had a patchwork of requirements regarding who could carry and what was needed to qualify for a license. Since then, more than 2 million licenses have been issued.
License holders are predominantly male and most are over 31 years old, with more than 219,000 at least 65 years old. While still a relative minority, representing about 20 percent of all license holders, more than 200,000 women also have licenses to carry.
Putnam said that of the 2 million issued, only 0.3 percent have been revoked.
Ummm...That's kind of funny...I went with the 9mm highpoint so I could plink. I wish I had gone with the 45 there as well as the Barretta CX4 Storm carbine...one ammo set for multiple platforms seems like the way to go....just stay away from the remington 45 acp I've had more than a few of the casings split down their length...Federal makes some good ammo as well as Hornady, Wolf, American Eagle...etc.

yeah im with ya on that the reason i was gonna get the 9mm from beretta was that i have a highpoint 45 carbine and yeah that thing is the most ridiculous thing to take down that i have ever tried to work on,and on hipoints warrenty i sent my 45 hand gun in to them cuz i bent the sites and sent it with out a magazine they sent me not one but two back with it as well as ghost ring night sites (they have the glowy trintium) at no cost to me never have i had better customer service from a company in my life and kinda hard to argue with a .45 acp for under $150 sure aint pretty but it gets the job done
