Or anybody else who knows. When did Indiana first start issuing carry licenses? i know it was along time back, but after checking several sources I've come up stumped about the year.

Thanks

Brian, my best estimate according to Indiana's Statute search for 35-47-2.3, Application for license to carry handgun; procedure is: O/A > 1983.

There's a guy on another forum for ingunowners who has it pretty well mapped out. He says that the licensing statute has included CC and OC all the way back to 1934. I can't find his post on it right now. Next time I find it, I'll have to copy & save it.
