Hello, all! Contracted MSIII here. I am looking toward obtaining a concealed carry license in my state (Ohio) and under Ohio CCW laws, the process of getting a license can be expedited if one has: It is my understanding that AROTC Cadets are technically in the reserve component of the US Army when they contract, but I wasn't sure if 1) Cadets are held in the same light as "true" reservists for this kind of thing and 2) If my BRM training with M16s and M4s through ROTC was sufficient for obtaining a CCW license. I know my best bet is probably to bring these questions to the sheriff's office and ask there, but I wanted to see if other Cadets had experience/advice with obtaining a CCW license while in ROTC. Thanks and have a great evening, folks.
