You're states concealed carry rate?

Montana has almost 47,000 concealed carry permits out of 1 million people; I think that's about 5%

Last I heard Genesee County was at a 10 percent level. 1 in 10 people. Shiawassee County is right there too. CPL classes are full and ranges are hard to get into on weekends with all the CPL classes using the range.

OK, remember, Illinois was the last state to allow CCW, just over a year ago-ish. I think we are probably over the 100k mark by now, but processing times are over what are quoted. Range time on the weekend is impossible around Chicago. Go during the week day if you want a chance.

Latest stats I could find for California is 70,593, a "whopping" (sarcasm) 0.2% of the population. No surprise with the restrictive counties and anti-gun politicians running (ruining) the state. More than half of these are from 7 counties in the state.

Got the number from here: https://www.revealnews.org/article/c...a-the-numbers/

I haven't found the official numbers, but I recall hearing that Georgia has about 5% of the population with WCL (weapon carry license.)

I am like Gator in Georgia, I can't find the exact number total. So far this is what I found.
In 2008 roughly 1 out of every 32 Tennessee residents had a valid handgun permit. Now as of 2015 it is 1 out of every 13 Tennessee residents have a permit.
