    I had an argument with a co-worker who says that a gun permit and a CCW license are not the same thing. Now when I went to apply for my gun permit this past monday I had the assumption that it was the same thing as a CCW. Now after reading www.packing.org I stand firm in my beliefs, I just need a little clarification on what a gun permit and a ccw are. Thanks in advance guys.

    In Georgia, the license is called a "Firearm License". There is nothing called a CCW permit in Georgia.

    If you have a Firearm License, you can carry open or concealed.

    Some states require gun buyers to have a license to purchase a firearm. Georgia does not have that requirement, but maybe your friend is confused.

    In North Carolina, there is such a thing as a "gun permit" (a Pistol Purchase Permit). Costs $5 at your local sheriff's office, or from the sheriff's table at a gun show. If you have an NC CCW license, you don't need a pistol purchase permit because the CCW license already involves a thorough background check.

    Most states don't have permits to purchase, though.

    varies by state

    NV has no such thing. In fact NV doesn't even issue concealed carry permits.
    Your county of residence does.

    Lone_Gunman is correct. I have gun loving friends in Georgia that even get this confused. "Permit" in some states implies a permission to purchase. In the Georgia the CCW license says "Georgia Firearms License" and is commonly referred to as a permit.

    And it is not even consistently for firearms.

    In florida, we have the "concealed weapons permit", which applies to firearms, knives, etc.
