    totally.

    we all have little things that bug us but getting worked up over something like that would be a full time endeavor. the pad of my thumb covers 8 letters on the keyboard at once on my iPhone. I screw up all the time.

    I'm a newbie to guns, but the CCW thing makes me laugh - around here it is CPL.

    Speaking of grammatical pet peeves: How about someone trying to say they don't care by saying "I could care less"? I think you mean you COULDN'T care less.

    For months I haven't been able to figure out what "CCW" exactly stood for!! I mean, I knew what people were talking about online, but couldn't figure out the "W" I've heard concealed weapeon permit, license, etc. So I'm glad that the term bugging you finally cleared it up for me!!!!

    Awesome! There is somebody that has also noticed that agrees with me. I think the issue with most of these things is that people don't actually think about what they are saying because most people they converse with know what they mean. I'll continue to be annoyed by that which annoys me even if I normally let it slide and don't say anything about it.

    to be clear though, people refer to their licenses differently because the issuing states call them different things. it would be incorrect of me to talk about my Kentucky concealed weapon permit because no such permit exists. KY issues a Concealed Deadly Weapons License. other states issue concealed handgun permits/license, concealed weapon permits, concealed carry permits etc. and they often have pretty big differences associated with them depending on the specific state's weapons laws.

    CCW is a noun. Concealed Carry Weapon. Mine is a Glock 23.
    Not a verb. It is not something that I do.

    CHL is also a noun, it is my Concealed Handgun License. Also not something that I do.

    CC and OC are adverbs. They describe how I carry my Glock 23. They are something that I do.

    Not useing them correctly does bother me a little also......but I do understand.

    But, how am I supposed to refer to my Counter Clockwise rotating revolver? Compared to my Clockwise rotating one?

    My Constant Carrier Wave, on the other hand, is always open carried?

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Now that throws a monkey wrench into the thought process.

    Yes - yz9890 has a good observation above.

    people refer to their licenses differently because the issuing states call them different things
    That's important. Also, when interest groups (like gun owners) form societies, it is normal and natural for them to use in-group jargon. These will be words and expressions that signify membership in the group, and they will likely be unintelligible or misunderstood by outsiders. Also, these terms being nonce-coinages, there will be dispute and variation in their use among said insiders.

    So. What do we make of "CCW"? The consensus is that it's a noun, meaning the "weapon you conceal on your person." The verb would be "CC." Still, as a special-interest board, if the members here decide in the aggregate that "CCW" means "the act of carrying a weapon," then that's what it would mean. These things are useful because having to type out "concealed carry weapon" all the time would be tedious.

    Here in Florida it is called a CWFL, Concealed Weapons Firearms License.
