    Not sure how it works in other states but only class is required here in NY. It’s not even like a safety class where you’re shooting or handeling firearms. Basically they just go over the laws and information about carrying, and how the permit process works. unfortunately that’s the easy part. My county isn’t as bad as some but it’s been almost 11 months and I’m still waiting for my permit. Good news is it should be granted any day now. Hopefully within the next week, if not I have to call them and see what’s going on. But it’s several months of just waiting for the detective to do the background check and interview. Basically the paperwork just sits around until they decide to get around to it. I tried to stay in their asses, not sure if that helped or hurt me. My advice is just get the class or course over and done with and get the paperwork ready the longer you procrastinate the longer it will take. As for pistol choices, just get what feels right in your hand. Both are good choices.

    I found the G19 a little bulky for CC, but then again I'm practically small enough to be a jocky. I bought a Beretta Nano, long before the G43 was released, and have been pretty happy with it.

    The trigger feel on the Nano is definitively not on par with the Glocks, but the rest of the gun is pretty similar and they're usually a couple hundred less than the G43.

    OP, sounds like you are still on active duty. Glock and most of the major manufacturers have great mil discount programs. For Glock, if you call their customer they can direct you to the law enforcement distributors in your state. Savings are pretty substantial. I would test fire the 19 and p320 side by side if those are your final two.
