    CHL, CHP, CCW and Whatever

    Ok I have a CCW in California, (Concealed Carry Weapon). I see people from other states posting and they speak of CHL, CH? and others. Forgive my lameness but what do all of these stand for and is there a difference in the legality of what it is they give you. Mine is a CCW so what are the others you all speak of..

    I know I will get the answer so thanks in advance

    Tennessee issues a Handgun Carry Permit:limited to handguns only.I was advised the reason it is called a 'carry permit' is that there is no legal definition of concealed.A holder may carry either open or concealed & be within the law.

    In Virginia it was called a Concealed Weapons License (CWL) until about 1997 when they changed it to Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) to reflect that the law made it legal to carry only a handgun with the permit.

    In Missouri, it is a Carry Concealed Weapon (CCW) and allows knives and other weapons to be carried concealed, while prohibiting some others.

    Don't forget MA's LTC-A (License To Carry Large capacity)

    As opposed to LTC-B, which does not allow you to actually carry. :/

    ''Pennsylvania Licence to Carry Firearms'' - is what is on my old permit. That would be LCF!!!

    CCW has overall it seems become the generic expression but there is quite a lot of variation.

    This is my old one which is obsolete now as they issue a DL type card instead. The pic is taken off a DL and also reduced - this pic could be Charles manson for all the clarity (lack of!).

    In Nevada it's called "NEVADA CONCEALED FIREARM PERMIT".
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!
