    It says so on my CCW

    Looking at my actual CCW that I carry, I noticed that there are two check-boxes-one says pistol and one revolver. I looked closely and mine is checked pistol and or with an 'x' there. What would be the reason for that? Revolver only? Why?

    Some states only let you CCW what you qualified with. I would go to packing.org and check your state laws or go to your local Sheriff office and find out. I am sure others here will also help steer you right.

    In Texas they have a category listing of SA or NSA--semiauto or non-semi-auto. Blue Lion gave you an excellent reference...be sure of what you can pack. They're a bit picky about it here...

    Question Kinda Strange, but...

    Thanks guys. I have the pistol and/or revolver checked on mine. But, there does remain the separate check-boxes. Just thought I would ask. Seems I can carry either. I didn't notice it until I re-newed.
    Oh yeah, here in WV the Sheriff takes your photo too. It's the only county in WV that does that. No fingerprints. Just the photo.

    In contrast, my permit here in Florida says nothing about what guns you may or may not carry. Instead, at the top my permit reads Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License. That means I can carry a blade concealed (including an automatic knife aka switchblade) or nunchuks or brass knucks....

    When I got my frist ccw permit back in Pennsylvania it had the serial number of the weapon on it! Don't think they do that any more.

    Here in Nevada we must have make, model, and caliber listed on the permit. You must qualify with each one,semi or revo. I have 7 listed on mine, 5 autos and 2 revos. [ Running out of space on the back. ]

    Florida has the best of all CCW's.
    But just remember when you drive up to GA. it's limited to what Georgia allows. So no switchblades, damn it.

    Might have to offer a different opinion on that. Oregon is a shall issue state. No restriction except it is a Concealed Handgun Permit. We can carry in schools, hospitals, and bars. Just about the only restriction is courthouses and jails along with federal buildings. If you need to carry on an Indian reservation then you must have a letter from an Indian judge but that is not a big issue for me.

    Mine has my pic, thumb print, make, model and cal., and serial # of each pistol. No box's as to auto or revo, and I don't have to qualify with any of them.

    Just peeked at your profile and thank the Lord you're in New York. If you were south of the Mason Dixon line I'd be having fits right now.

    New Mexico requires qualification with both if you want to carry both. In addition, you can only carry one gun at a time. As to caliber, you can carry any caliber the same size or smaller, but no larger than what you qualified with.
