    Concealed hand gun license

    Over at Ohio For Concealed Carry forum there is a discussion going on what to call your license. Sounds unimportant, but I think it should be more uniform. There is a pole on that site with all kind of letters, CHL CCW CCP CHP and so on. The CHL has 95% of the votes. Just want to know if some of you think it should be uniform and what letters do you think would be the most uniform threw out the country ? Stay Safe

    I think most people use what the license happens to be called in the state that issues it.

    I don't think it should be uniform because that could lead to national issue, which would get the federal gov't involved, and nothing good ever comes from that. I would prefer CWP, as in concealed weapons permit. Mine however is CHL, which limits me to a handgun.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I don't care if they called it "Felon's Special Surprise" as long as it's available, recognised & reciprocated. Go Ohio!

    That's actually an interesting, though not necessarily important, question.

    In my state it's generally called CCWL for Concealed Carry of Weapons License .

    But enven that is not really correct as it only applies to guns, not knives etc.

    I like Arizona's: CWP Concealed Weapons Permit, and it does mean all LEAGAL weapons can be carried.

    Oklahoma is the same way (CWL) but it only applies to handguns -- actually to .45 caliber or less handguns!
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    If given a choice I think CWP (Concealed Weapon Permit) sounds about right.

    My state calls it Concealed Firearm Permit.

    I wish Washington had a CWP (concealed weapons permit) or CWL (concealed weapons license) which would cover other weapons as well as guns. We have a CPL (concealed pistol license) whis is just for pistols. If we had one permit for all defensive tools then we wouldn't have the problem of different municipalities creating their own restrictive legislation.

    LOVE that one....

    In Florida itís called a concealed weapons permit, since it allows you to carry just about everything; including auto knifes, Billy clubs, mace, tazors, and oh ya pistols. So for us itís a CWP but most forums call it a CCL.

    And like Ghost Tracker said, I donít care what they call it, so long as they recognized & reciprocated

    It's called a CHL here, and the actual license has those letters preceding the serial number. CHLN ******* Most folks still know what you're talking about when you say permit or CCW though.

    Yep and it bugs the snot out of me. What should they care what kind of concealed weapon I carry as long as I'm one of the good guys. My father walks with a sword cane here in Oklahoma. At 85 he does not want to bother with a CWL but the sword cane is not legal and many other items are not ok either.
