I use CCW as the generic term as it seems to be the most understood, and call it a CHL if I'm referring to Texas specifically.
the local LEO's would probably have a hissy fit at first until they figured it out. Difficult to conceal under normal clothing in a position to be able to use it quickly anyway.
In qualification, the only requirement is that you qualify with a handgun. Again, no specific type or caliber unlike some states that require you to qualify with the gun you are going to carry or specify that if you qualify with a revolver you can only carry a revolver etc.
It should be called HG, for Hidden Gat.
Virginia issues a Concealed Handgun Permit = CHP
CCW = Carry Concealed Weapon.
CCW Permit = Carry Concealed Weapon Permit
At least in AZ it is that way. CCW Permit would seem to work in most situations although what is allowed as a "weapon" will vary from state to state. So I vote with the majority that CCW is easy and seems to cover what is going on for most of us while still allowing states to define the actual weapons to suit local law.
I'm CHL and I CCW a Sig P250.
Hope that helps!
I think CCW is something you get arrested for.
What kind of hollster do you use for something that large? Must be some Sith made special hollster!
Concealed Weapon Permit, so I say CWP. But that's what it says, "weapon". It doesn't specifically say gun, or handgun, or pistol, and no specific guns are registered to it, so I'm not really positive just what KIND of weapon(s) it "permits" me to carry. I prefer ones that go "bang", though.
Thanks! I haven't even moved yet and I'm already blown away...although it's been making the planning fun on what gun to get next. Then again, my wallet is starting to cry uncle and I haven't even spent a cent!
And funny enough, I'll also be moving to Bucks County.
