    yeah Marcus, makes no sense...I can walk down the street/drive with a rifle or shotgun in plain view, I can CCW 10 pistols, but I can't conceal (unless traveling) a knife w/blade longer than 5 /12" or an asp....

    I'm in FL so my 6" folding is OK. Many of you may not know this, but anyone who can legally possess a gun can have it in the car with certain access requirements?

    Long guns, I need to research. I'm lax about having them in the car with ammo in mil-cans and buttstock slips.

    In years past, Washington state had a CCW (carry concealed weapon) permit. After some unsuccessful prosecutions of people carrying weapons other than handguns, the legislature changed the permit to a CPL (concealed pistol license). It authorizes you only to carry a concealed handgun. Knives with a blade over 3"*, blackjacks, brass knuckles, saps, switchblades, etc. all fall under the definition of 'dangerous weapon' and as such are prohibited from carry.

    PS: * Edited to add that there is case law in Washington that a knife with a blade 3" or less can be considered a dangerous weapon depending on the circumstances of its use. These cases were in the context of deciding if a prison sentence should be enhanced by virtue of using a dangerous or deadly weapon during a crime. The short answer is yes. So if you rob someone in Washington with a 2" knife, you can get five years added to your sentence.

    Texas CHL

    To answer your question, you would be hard pressed to pass the Texas CHL with a derringer. It involves timed strings of up to 5 rounds at a time. This would be impossible with a derringer. Not even Jerry Miculek would be able to pull it off!

    I also know that the FL permit allows esoteric things like auto knives (I have several) and brass knucks and even nun-chukas. I always carry a Spyderco Delica (combo blade) along with whatever gun I'm wearing. Oh and also a nice SureFire light.

    NYS - "License to Carry A Pistol"

    "Pistol" meaning pistol or revolver in New York State. Concealed only. Each pistol listed on your license.

    No other weapons on licence pursuant to the NYS penal code.

    In NYC? Who knows?...I won't go there!

    Maine permit is a permit to carry concealed firearms...so pretty much any gun that you can hide
    New Hampshire is a Pistol/Revolver License so I can't carry my skeet gun with 28" bbl under my overcoat here like I can in ME
    No other weapons are specific to the CCWs in these states but some may be allowed

    In Kentucky the license covers most any deadly weapon:

    From KY State Police web site:

    What weapons are covered under the CCDW permit?
    Any weapon from which a shot, readily capable of producing death or serious physical injury, may be discharged.

    Any knife other than an ordinary pocket knife or hunting knife.

    Billy, nightstick, or club.

    Blackjack or slapjack.

    Gotta love the Bluegrass!
    Nunchaku karate sticks.

    Shiriken or death star.

    Artificial knuckles made from plastic, or other similar hard material.

    In North Dakota it covers dangerous weapons,

    so if I wanted to carry a broadsword under my duster I could get away with it. Well, at least I would win a knife fight.

    I have carried a Glock Field knife along with my sidearm

    I just got my renewal ND license and it does say "Firearm & Dang. Weapon". This is different from my old license which only covered whatever type of weapon you had shown proficiency with. I am not sure when the law changed, but I suppose it was at the same time they did away with the laughable proficiency tests.

    All the best,

    Joe

    In MO, your permit allows you to carry, in addition to your handgun(s), any knife except for an automatic or balisong. You can carry any blade-length, single or double-edge...doesnt' matter. You are also allowed to carry impact weapons (blackjacks, saps, kubatons, etc.).

    W/O a permit, you are limited to a folding knife with a blade no longer than 4", and NO impact weapons.
    "Being a predator isn't always comfortable but the only other option is to be prey. That is not an acceptable option." ~Phil Messina

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.
