    In Oregon, it's a CHL. Also not needed for open carry, unless you head to some of the more-populated areas that ignore the state legislature's preemption clause.

    In Pa, it's an LTCF= License to carry firearm. Not needed for open carry except in your car or Philly.

    In Arapahoe County, the Colorado CCW permit is titled "Concealed Weapon Permit", although the statute limits the concealed weapon to handguns.

    Open carry is legal in CO except in Denver, and anyone (who can legally own a firearm) is specifically allowed by CO statute to have a loaded handgun in his or her vehicle for self defense, and it "shall not be considered concealed".

    In Tennessee, it's a Handgun Carry Permit. Covers concealed or open carry (the latter only by state Attorney General opinion, never tested to my knowledge in court). I'm not interested in being the test case, either.

    Montana: CWP (Concealed Weapons Permit).

    It's only required within the boundaries of an incorporated city or town.

    The press calls it "conceal & carry" which is sort of turning out to be a good thing. Anytime anyone uses that phrase it means they either haven't read the law or they get all their info from the media. MN does not have a concealed carry law, a CHP, CPL, or anything like that. We have a permit to carry.
    Even more MN detail: On the card itself, it's a "Permit To Carry A Pistol".

    In Minnesota permit holders can open carry, which makes the misnomer "conceal & carry" very misleading to the public.

    Actually in Mississippi it is just Firearms Permit. You can open carry with a permit.

    CHP here in Virginia, or "Permit to carry a concealed handgun". And VA is an open carry state, so you could open carry with out a permit if you wished.

    For California, it is "License to Carry Concealed Pistol, Revolver or Other Firearm Within the State of California". LCCPRPFWSC? We call it a CCW.
    By the way, forget the other firearm part; they won't play.

    I do know that this is a permit to carry a handgun only even though in one place it says Concealed Handgun and in another place it says Concealed Weapon.

    On the front side, my Colorado permit says:

    XYZ County Sheriff's Office
    Concealed Handgun Permit

    My Name
    --------------------------------
    Is hearby authorized to carry a
    Concealed Weapon pursuant to
    CRS #...

    It has my photo and is signed by the Sheriff of the county in which I reside.

    The word "Colorado" appears only once on the permit.

    The reverse side contains my DOB, description, issue and expiration dates.

    Nowhere, on the entire card, is my address!
