Thread: How many abbreviations for concealed carry?

    How many abbreviations for concealed carry?

    I just thought it would be neat to see how many abbreviations there are in the US for carrying a concealed weapons permit. The ones I'm familiar with right off hand are CC, CCW and CWP. I can't for the life of me remember what the "W" is for in CCW.

    With 50 States, there must be more. Or is it 57, seems like the President said there were 57. I'm so confused!

    Anybody have any others?

    Why doesn't my text automatically word wrap?

    CCW=Concealed Weapons Permit? Some states allow the carry of other weapons besides firearms.

    Off the top of my head:

    CWP: concealed weapons permit
    CCP: concealed carry permit
    CFP: concealed firearms permit
    CCW: concealed carry weapon (permit?)

    You know, I'm going to put together a whole list. I'll do permits as well as other common abbreviations. I will need it for my new firearms website anyway.

    Luke, when I've got it mostly together I'll send you a copy.

  6. You forgot these

    CCW = Carrying a Concealed Weapon
    CPL = Concealed Pistol License
    CWP = Concealed Weapons Permit
    CWL = Concealed Weapons License

    ETC. I suppose you could come up with a List of words. Pick any three different words from the list without repeating and it should work. You might get a few which do not make sense but it would probably work.

  7. In Oregon, it's officially a "Concealed Handgun License", or CHL. (Although I've seen some sheriff's offices refer to it as a CWP in general, and only call it a CHL when specifically referring to the actual state law.)

    I have ten so far, including the ones mentioned.

    And, of course, there will be a special sub-section just for G-isms:
    SD: (as above)
    CCB: concealed carry badge
    CCC: concealed carry cape, et al
    WDNNSB: we don't need no stinkin' badges, etc.

    CCW Badge doesn't get an abbreviation, because it already contains the CCW abbreviation.

    Don't forget,
    CMC!: Concealed Means Concealed!
    not to be confused with,
    CCM: Concealed Carry Mask (Because concealed means concealed)
    PBF: Public Breast Feeding
    UN: United Nations (An organization that screws up a lot.)
