    Arkansas... CHL

    The one that seems to be most used and universally accepted on the Interent would be CCW
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    It depends on the state your permit is from. In Virginia it is a CHP. In Oklahoma it is a CHL, while in PA it is a LTCF.

    Here it's a Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers - or Carry Permit, for short.

    TN has HCP. Handgun carry permit.

    Kansas is CCH, concealed carry handgun. A ccw is "weapon" and Kansas does not license carrying other weapons such as knives.

    Funny in Oklahoma the license actually says "Concealed Weapon License", which is a misnomer in that weapons other than .45 caliber or below handguns are not covered.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    In the People's Republic of New York it is a FCP or "Full Carry Permit" or unrestricted CCWP.

    WA = CPL Commonly - Concealed Pistol License. (Officially - License to Carry Concealed Pistol)
    Quoting from the license: "The person described hereon is license to carry concealed pistols as described by law until the expiration date shown above."

    Carry permit any way you wish. Amazing for this now liberal State. It passed under republican control. Present day, no way it could pass with dems in control.
