Thread: TWIC cards
April 10th, 2012, 11:16 AM #1
I have taken one of the Concealed carry courses recently and seriously considering applying for a ccw permit. I've been doing alot of research on concealed carry to insure that it is indeed what I want to do.....especially knowing that I can legally open carry. One aspect that I have not found Any info about is TWIC cards in relation to concealed carry. With that said, here is my issue and question. I work for a chemical plant and I'm required to get a TWIC card as a condition of employment. My TWIC must be renewed near the end of this year. Have any of you run into or heard of any issues of a TWIC card being denied/revoked as a result of getting a ccw permit? I can't imagine that there would be an issue if you have a permit, but would like to confirm this as best I can as this job provides a good living for my family and I.

I don't know what a TWIC card is, but it sounds like a security clearance of some kind. If they deny you one kind of security clearance just because you passed a different kind of security clearance/background check, then sue the hell out of them and retire early. just my uninformed opinion.My secret arsenal is an infinite, ageless inkwell.

There's plenty of guys on here who work offshore and posses both a TWIC card and CCW permit without issue...."Wake up determined. Go to bed satisfied. And somewhere in between, eat a cookie."

I have a TWIC card and had no problem with getting it even though I have a CHP.
Get the CHP. Don't worry about it messing with your TWIC. It's not an issue.

I have a TWIC and a CCW and never had a problem. TWIC had nothing to do with a CCW, If you can't get a TWIC you probably can't get a CCW either. You can't carry your gun inside a plant, but you can keep it in your locked vehicle in a publicly accessible parking lot.When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.
I carry a gun because I'm too old for an ass whoopin', and too young to die!

I have both and I haven't had any issues. They are background checks, not "other form of ID checks."______________________________________________

They both are sort of a back ground check, but actually the twic is a Transportation workers ID card, for the areas that are covered by maritime security.. they actually are another form of ID that does work in airports as well, since its a federal ID.
the twic is actually tougher to qualify for and it should not be a problem to have both ever.. the CCP is just making sure you are not a bad guy, the twic goes into some past and is really a 2/3 secret clearance.
You should have no worries and the CCP is the better thing to have than to just open carry...
