None that I know of as both use the word Concealed. Most states that use the word "concealed" do require you to carry it that way.

It's just state by state terminology.
In PA it's LTCF or something like that

In Arkansas it is CHL and says so on the license.
There are several different terms used that basically mean the same thing throughout the states. CHL,CCW,CHP,LTC,HCP are a few that come to mind.
It's a state thing.

There is no difference.
Same as some states have a Dept. of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and others a Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA).
The state specific terms of; CHL (Concealed Handgun License), CHP (Concealed Handgun Permit), HP (Handgun Permit), and LTC (License to Carry) are all relating to ability to keep & possess and/or carry a firearm of some sort as to some state statute specific degree.

In FL, it's a Concealed Weapon and Firearm License, which covers weapons (knives, sprays, tasers, etc.) and firearms. Puts everything in one catagory, whereas a Concealed Firearms License (or Permit) covers only firearms in general.

Sameo-sameo. In SC, it's a CWP (Concealed Weapon Permit).

There ARE differences. As an example, in OH you are issued a Concealed Handgun License (CHL). We are limited to only carrying handguns, no knives, etc. The definition of a handgun in OH is also restricted. Each state has its own laws.

Michigan is CPL Concealed Pistol license. As they don't want you carrying a concealed shotgun or rifle. Also knives have size restrictions as well.

"Permit to Carry" in Minnesota.
MN is not a "conceal" state. You may carry openly or discreetly. Hence the moniker "CHP" or "CHL" do not apply to MN. Of course, the leftist rags (Minneapolis Star Tribune) always call it "Conceal and Carry" even though that is not what it is.
