Carrying concealed weapon outside US

I would like to get an overview of CCW laws in EU and EFTA member states. Are there enough European members of the forum to put that together?

Austria - may issue/permissive or restrictive depending on region
Bulgaria - ???
Belgium - may issue/restrictive
Cyprus - ??? may issue/no issue ???
Czech Republic - shall issue
Denmark - ??? no issue ???
Estonia - ??? shall issue ???
Finland - may issue/restrictive
France - may issue/restrictive
Germany - may issue/restrictive
Greece - may issue/restrictive
Hungary - may issue/restrictive
Iceland - ??? no issue ???
Ireland - ??? no issue ???
Italy - may issue/restrictive
Latvia - ??? shall issue ???
Lichtenstein - ???
Lithuania - ? shall issue ?
Luxembourg - may issue/restrictive
Malta - no issue
Netherlands - no issue
Norway - no issue
Poland - may issue/restrictive
Portugal - ???
Romania - may issue/restrictive
Slovakia - may issue/permissive or restrictive depending on region
Slovenia - ??? shall issue ???
Spain - ? may issue/restrictive ?
Sweden - ??? no issue ???
Switzerland - may issue/restrictive
United Kingdom - ??? no issue ???? / Northern Ireland may issue ???

("may issue/restrictive" should be read as "no issue unless mafia put's price on your head")

(I started this on The Firearms Forum some time ago with no answers, I hope to get more feedback here. Thanks in advance )

If he is in the Czech Republic, why contact the embassies in the US?

BSA1, I guess that could be a solution, however I don't really need the list for any specific purpose other than getting an overview I could not find anywhere else, so writing emails to 28 embasies seems as an awful lot of work.

Actually it is pretty easy. Write one email and cut and paste to emails to the other countries. I missed that you are living in the Czech Republic so I don't know if all of the countries you are interested have Embassies in your country.

It sounds like a interesting project.
