Ok fellas looking for some advice. I currently run a framing crew and have been thinking about getting my license, would it be worth it for me to do it, what are the pro's and con's?

I would say it depends on if you need it. Around here, if you are a subcontractor only-you wouldn't need one. If you plan on doing jobs yourself and needing to pull permits, then you'll have to have one.
On a side note, being licensed is a good idea anyway. It can show (give impression) you are legit. It could open up other jobs for you. But if you're only framing houses for contractors and have no plans of expanding into building houses or other types of work, probably no need to do it.
Hope this helps..

It depends on how easy it is to get and how much it costs to keep. In MA its a PITA studying for the test. Its a few hundred in books, couple hundred to take the test and another couple for the license every few years. I personally spend time and money getting every license I can because I would rather have them than not.
