    Question CCW Status in central database

    So it shows that you were finger printed for a CCW.....does it show current approval status with the issuing agency? If the Sheriff of smokey hollow issues you a permit then revokes it 3 months later, is all of that on a database in Sacramento?

    It will show current and if revoked. All that information is in the DOJ database.

    In Oregon and Washington- YES

    To expound on what HK4U said, the trainer in my CHL class told us when we get pulled over, have both your driver's liscence and your CHL ready for the LEO, even if that appens to be a particular day that you're not carrying. That way when they do run the check and it shows up, they don't think you're trying to hide something from them.

    BTW, I've been pulled over twice since the issue of my CHL and both times, the city and the DPS officer let me go without issuing a ticket.

    In NV

    If you live in NV, yes, it does show up the moment a NV LEO runs your plate and you're a NV resident.

    I do not know if there's a cross reference between license plates and recognized CCWs in NV (i.e. a Utah plate flags a possible UT CFP holder because the name of the register owner(s) of the vehicle registers a hit on the UT CFP database by name). It all depends on what NV LEOs can do with respect to searching recognized CCWs.

    Florida has an online verification system as they made the NV recognition list the beginning of this year. It is possible for a Florida LEO to check your CCW status. It also depends on the nature of the reciprocity agreement or what access States grant through the nationwide law enforcement datacom network. If a State you have is on the NV recognition list, you can bet a LEO can find out your CCW status somehow.

  7. It does here in MO, at least here in the SW corner.

  8. We have to tell in Ohio, and it comes up when the LEO calls it in. I was pulled over for a tail light, and when it cam back over the radio I herd my name and CCW after. I had already told the LEO I had a weapon on me. Was told to get the light fixed and sent on my way.

    So in these states that have their CHL listed on the vehicle registration, what if it's your wife or kid or grandma driving your car? Lotta kids cars are registered to parents.

    In Washington and Oregon your CHL is attached in their records to your drivers license (Washington does not have a picture on its CHL for just that reason). Likewise your vehicle registration is linked to the licensed driver. All the officer knows until he/she walks up to the window of the car is the registered owner of the vehicle may have a CHL.

    In Oregon and Washington you DO NOT have to reveal that you are a CHL holder nor do you have to alert them that you are packing- I did not say it was smart not to alert them, but you are not required to do so.
